The small print

As a general rule of thumb, you should never trust online password generators. The only exceptions to this rule are:

  • You created the tool yourself and you know what it is doing.
  • You know who created the tool and trust them explicitly.
  • You have inspected the code and know that it is client-side only (this tool is not).
  • You trust that the tool does not keep a copy of generated passwords.

With the above in mind, you should know that this tool does not keep copies of generated passwords; however, there is a strong chance that
you do not know me, and therefore you should probably not trust this tool. Have a nice day!
