Passphrase Generator

Use our free passphrase generator tool to create long, random passwords that are difficult for cybercriminals to crack.

Why Use a Random Passphrase?

When creating passwords, users often resort to using short, weak passwords so they’re easier to remember. Passwords that are short and weak can be cracked by cybercriminals instantly. Using a random passphrase is a more secure alternative because it is memorable and longer. Since a passphrase combines multiple, random words, it is more difficult for cybercriminals to crack.

Passphrase Best Practices

Don’t use personal information in your passphrase

You should avoid using personal information in your passphrases. Although a passphrase with personal information such as your dog’s name may be easy to remember, it can easily be cracked by cybercriminals. Cybercriminals can find personal information about you online and use it to guess your passphrases.

Use unique, random dictionary words

When creating a passphrase, you should avoid using common dictionary words such as “password.” Common dictionary words are predictable and can easily be guessed by cybercriminals. Cybercriminals can also guess passphrases that use words related to each other. You need to use unique and random dictionary words that do not correlate with each other to strengthen your passphrase.

Include uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers and symbols

To strengthen your passphrases, you should include a mix of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers and symbols. You can use numbers, symbols or spaces to separate each word of the passphrase. By making your passphrases more complex, cybercriminals will have a much harder time guessing them.

Create a different phrase for each account

Although passphrases are strong and easy to remember, you should create a different passphrase for each of your accounts. Regardless of how strong your passphrase is, if you reuse a passphrase and it becomes compromised, it places multiple accounts at risk of getting taken over by a cybercriminal.

How To Manage Your Passwords

The best way to securely manage your passwords is with a password manager. A password manager enables users to create, store and manage passwords for each of their online accounts so they don’t have to memorize them all themselves. The only password users have to remember is their master password, which can also be a strong passphrase!
