Info updated on:

PSWD is a comprehensive password generator that creates random passwords with the complexity of your choice. The tool comes with a wide range of password generating settings which, although extensive, don't make the application difficult to use. On the contrary, they are intuitive and easy to configure with few clicks. Moreover, if the utility detects conflicts among the settings you made, it informs you about what is wrong in a pop up window.

Therefore, you have the ability to set the length and the number of passwords you want the app to create. You can choose between random and phonetic type of passwords and select whether to include uppercase and lowercase letters, digits and symbols, and other uncategorized characters. Also, you can set the tool to exclude ambiguous characters or those you specifically determine in the corresponding field. A feature that few similar tools provide is the chance to add separators to the password. You can choose your favorite separator type and make it appear repeatedly in your password after a defined number of characters. The settings you do once can be saved as presets and loaded later for easy configuration of a new password.

All the above-mentioned features make PSWD a reliable and great password generating tool that proves to be complex yet easy to use. It calculates automatically and in real time the entropy and strength information for your password so you can know if it is strong enough for your needs. You can launch it from Dock, menu bar or with global hotkey for easy access.
