Many may classify me as a psychopath or a security freak, but when you have accounts in dozens of sites, I don't know about you, but I am worried that all these accounts have the same password ... I see it as suicide HAHA.
The problem is in inventing about 50 different passwords, that are not related to each other or something like that, this is where I get stuck, because I don't have enough creativity for this haha.
And ... thanks to Tux that password generators were invented 😀
This time I will tell you about the one I use: pwgen (its name means: password generator or password generator)
pwgen It is in the repos of the most common distros, to install it in ArchLinux we simply put:
- sudo pacman -S pwgen
En Debian or derivatives, a:
- sudo apt-get install pwgen
Using it is really easy, you just have to open a terminal and type «pwgen»(Without the quotes) and voila, they will automatically be shown randomly generated passwords 😀
But this is not all, pwgen It has several options that can be used, if you wish ... to make the generated passwords more secure (complicated) 😉
In other words, if they only write «pwgen»(Without the quotes) they will generate passwords with upper and lower case letters as well as with numbers, but if they write«pwgen -y»(Without the quotes) will be added in addition to this, rare characters.
As an image always explains better than just text, I leave the demonstration here:
As you can see, pretty cool right? 😀
Now, the part about where do I keep these passwords would be missing, because they are impossible to remember? … But that's already another article HAHA, I'll just tell you something: «keepassx»😉
