You’re reading this so you’re using the internet, and using the internet means login IDs and passwords. Passwords are one of the annoyances of modern life on the information superhighway. Make a password too easy to guess and your private information could be at risk. Make a password too difficult to use and you make your life more troublesome.
Enter PassMaker, the free Mac app that creates secure passwords. There’s no magic to this nifty app. Use the slider bar to select the password’s length.
Select Lowercase, Uppcase, Numbers, or Symbols, or any combination. Click the Generate button and the secure password is instantly generated.
That’s all there is to creating a secure password. Of course, that doesn’t make the password easier to remember. In fact, lengthy passwords with symbols and numbers and characters are probably more difficult to remember.
Such is the price of privacy and security. Or, is it?
Add Doorman to your Mac (also free) and it creates complex passwords, too, but has an option to create a speakable password which, should, in theory, be easier to remember.
