How to use / generate super secure passwords

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:
% CODE1%

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»😉

regards

    I did not know that command, very useful and easy to use!

    Although for KeePassX users, the safest thing is that they use their own password generator.

    Regards!

    In this case I use an add-on, both for firefox and for chrome and derivatives, since all the pass I use are on the internet XD
    It's called lastpass and it has both a password generator and a trunk to remember them all, and you can even autofill forms, etc ...

    I leave the page here: https://lastpass.com/

    Man, I don't have an account almost anywhere, but putting the same password I don't forget
