tidepass is a simple password generator for your daily use. The tool is designed to help you create strong passwords for your computer and online accounts so that your information can remain secure and protected from unauthorized use.

With a minimalist design, the program's interface supports being moved around the screen and placed on any position you prefer. The main window looks rather as a small floating dialog that won't clutter the view of other running applications. All you need to do is type a hard-to-guess passphrase and enter a custom name for it. Consequently, a unique password will be generated automatically for you to use as credentials that will surely meet your more exacting authentication needs. The background color of your passphrase will change from red to green as it gains in complexity. It is advisable to combine uppercase, lowercase, numeric, and symbol-based characters in order to obtain a strong password. You can also manage the complexity of the generated password simply by checking and, respectively, unchecking the type of characters you want to your password to include. The length of the resulting password can also be controlled by appending the ":" sign at the end of the password name followed by a specific number. As a result, the generated password will contain the number of characters you already defined.

In conclusion, tidepass offers an easy way to create more or less complex passwords. Unfortunately, the small interface can't be enlarged to custom sizes for better password visualization. Furthermore, the tool doesn't provide a password-generating button to reset the combination of characters in case the first result isn't to your liking.
