Suggestion:strong/weak password
« on: October 01, 2006, 05:35:34 PM »
Hello,


When defining the character set to be used to generate a password, perhaps it would be important to know right away whether or not the password created is strong or weak.

I'd propose, unless used fot some other purpose, include the strenght of the password some place below the

" Copy Generated Password To Clipboard" .

I guess that the password strenght is also highly affected by  actual size of the password set in the

"Passwordmaker account-specifc settings".

I also observed that depending on how the "Using URL" is entered different passwords are created .

As an example:

For        http://forums.passwordmaker.org I have one type of password.
For        forums.passwordmaker.org I have a completely diffrent password.


Thanks

Are you talking about Basic Options, Advanced Options, or both?

Yes, this is by design. It sounds like you are using the Basic Options. If you switch to Advanced Options, you can have the same password generated for forums.passwordmaker.org and http://forums.passwordmaker.org by defining URL Patterns.

Regards,
Eric
