More control around Password Generator

Recommended Posts

I would like to have more control over the password generator algorithm, both at a general level and, ideally, at a "card" level to cope with sites which limit what is and is not allowed. For example, having an Advanced set of recipe options as follows:

  • Total Length, as current recipe
  • Mix of types of letters:
    • Number of caps - between x and y (rather than just a fixed number) to make this more random
    • Number of digits - between x and y (rather than just a fixed number) to make this more random
    • Number of specials - between x and y (rather than just a fixed number) to make this more random
    • Min number of lower case letters, to work with rest of the recipe to balance out the mix
  • An alternative approach for the above could be to just have a "minimum" number of letters in each case, with the randomising adjusting the numbers accordingly
  • Control over which special characters are allowed in the recipe

Having the ability to control a recipe at a card level, or probably better still, to have a set of different recipes defined ("presets" which could be prepopulated with the option to edit/add/remove them) and then referred to by a card, would make the whole Password Generator function much more powerful.

These improvements in the password generator are coming with next major update Enpass 6.

The feature to control recipe on a card level is also in roadmap.

Cheers!

It would be awesome too, if one could generate a password, inside the browser using a hotkey.

I constantly find myself double-clicking desktop app system tray and CTRL + G to CTRL + C and CTRL + V into form than click Save from Browser to Sync.

Could easily save a few clicks and 30+ seconds
