What is a random password generator?

How does a password generator work? A strong password generator is a tool that automatically generates random and complex passwords based on guidelines that you set to create strong and unpredictable passwords for each of your accounts.

Good password generators do the following:

What's a strong password anyway?

Long: The longer a password, the more secure it is. A secure password should be at least 12 characters long.

Random: Random passwords use a combination of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols to form an unpredictable string of characters that doesn't resemble words or names.

Unique: A strong password should be unique to each account to reduce vulnerability in the event of a hack.

How do password generators work?

Password generators use algorithms to create random passwords based on a combination of characters, numbers, and symbols to generate strong and secure passwords. They ensure that passwords are difficult to guess and enhance online security.

Is Dashlane’s Password Generator safe to use?

Yes, it is safe to use due to how truly random the generated passwords are. The most important thing about a password generator is the flexibility and customization to create really random passwords. Dashlane allows different options for the user such as the ability to limit them by letters, digits, and symbols but also to avoid similar characters.

For signed in users our generator follows industry-standard encryption protocols and generates passwords locally on your device, ensuring that your password is not shared or stored by Dashlane. If you are a Dashlane user and you save your passwords in Dashlane, your generated random password is encrypted and protected with your Dashlane master password.

How often should I change my password?

It is generally recommended to change your password regularly, ideally every 3-6 months, but this becomes less necessary if you’re using a random password generator. Regular password changes help mitigate the risk of unauthorized access and maintain the security of your accounts. However, if you suspect a security breach or if you receive a notification about a compromised service, it is advisable to change your password immediately.

  • Create unique and complex passwords with a strong password generator for each online account.

  • Enable two-factor authentication whenever possible.

  • Regularly update your devices and software to ensure security patches are in place.

  • Be cautious of phishing attempts and avoid sharing your passwords with anyone. A secure password is a safe password.

What are the most common password mistakes?

  • Using simple and easily guessable weak passwords like "password123" or "123456" for login credentials.

  • Reusing the same password across multiple accounts, which increases the risk if one account is compromised.

  • Using personal information such as names, birthdates, or phone numbers in passwords.

  • Neglecting to change default passwords provided by devices or services.

  • Use best practices when sharing. Use a platform that allows for easy password management – one that is encrypted and uses autofill to safely share passwords, secure notes and credit cards. With autofill there is no need to use online communication platforms or paper notes to share passwords or secure information with friends, family or coworkers.

  • Writing down passwords or storing them in unsecured locations is the opposite of ensuring you have a secure password.

  • Ignoring notification of data breaches and not changing leaked passwords.
