We all the know the importance of using the strong passwords in various online services. Stronger passwords hinder the hacking attempts in the first stage. They are more difficult to crack or guess. You can create your own strong passwords by following three basic rules – (1) they should be at least 12 characters in length, (2) they should not contain any dictionary words, dates or names, and (3) they should use special characters and numerals. But manually creating strong passwords using these rules is very tough. May be you can put on your thinking cap and create a strong password one time, but the second time it starts to hurt your head. So why not use a program to generate the strong passwords for you? Avoiding the repetitive thinking is why you are using the computer in the first place.
