Dear All - I am a new user of this very elegant solution about passwords - Password Maker. I tried it on 3-4 websites and found it very helpful. However, I am confused whether "Password Maker" and "Password Maker X 2.0.3" by emersion is the same and equally safe to use. I tried both for one website and two different passwords were generated. While the "Password Maker X 2.0.3" by emersion was last updated on February 8, 2016, the "PasswordMaker" was last updated on August 20, 2010 (quite backdated).

Which one should I use and why?

Please give your valuable opinions.

Thanks and Merry Christmas to all,

This is a security issue actually.

Let's say is the site you want to log into. Now, someone wants to steal login details and get the domain or

Using your suggestion, they can steal your password. I don't think there are enough valid sites to make this a worth while option actually.

I'd like to suggest that PasswordMaker adds a "Domain extension" field to the Profile options list.

That way passwords could be generated using just the website name: "mywebsite" rather than "" without having to manually edit the URL field.

I currently use that for a number of sites due to web address changes as well as for non-online passwords. This feature would mean I could make them all passwords consistent and automatic.

It'd be great to hear if anyone else agrees or any other thoughts.

- Thanks.

TL;DR -- Different Templates, no way to be compatible

First off, that other app uses a key generator, which PasswordMaker doesn't have. The output of that key generator is what you would put in the master password here.

What is passes to HMAC-SHA-256 is DIFFERENT anyway. First, it starts with the appID that some mobile apps would use in the background which could be used here, then the length of the site, which I'm not sure if we can add.

Then it's the encoding step. At the start, this app had a simple binary to hex conversion, then switched to something else to allow more characters, but at heart, it's still a binary to whatever you would call the character set. NOTHING can be done about this.

Greeting, is it possible to get it compatible with

As I started with that but could not get addons for Opera an Vivaldi for that.

I tried with same user name, same hashing algorithm (HMAC-SHA-256), same password lenght. But I can't get the same passwords. Different Templates?

The below is AOK if one is a programmer, when you are just a "LooseKnutOnKeyboard" how can we spot what need be removed? 


I have run into this myself, but thought it had something to do with the number of Groups/Accounts I have (a lot).

You can edit the passwordmaker.rdf file manually, but you have to be very careful with the syntax... probably best to make a copy before editing, especially if you have some important accounts defined.

Guess what?  Managed to get my original 'rdf' file back in operation AND did not use the 'Import' feature.  Just copy/paste.

Thanks anyway,
