Do you guys know any good password generators for creating secure passwords to use online and on your pc? Nice if they are able to store the passwords and things such as that also.

I'd be wary of any program you find that 'stores' your passwords. Also, I know it doesnt answer your question, but I try to stick to 8+ digit passwords with random combinations of numbers and letters.

Yea its probably alot more secure if i just make up my own passwords and write them down but its sort of a hassle to look them up and type them in manually when i could just copy and paste out of a stored list.

whats the point of a secure password if your just going to put it somewhere some nosy individual can look it up. i used to pick different passwords for all things, but soon i realised how stupid that was, now i have two passwords that i use regularly, if i need a long password i use the both of them together. for more secure needs i stick a couple odd characters at the end of one of them. so for all things online, my password could only be one of 3 choices. i find it much easyer to remember if i stuck an odd character at the end of one than trying to remember a whole new password.
