Pronounceable password algorithm broken in 6.0

Recommended Posts

The pronounceable password algorithm does not respect the digits dipswitch and only puts a capital letter at the front for the capitals dipswitch. This is in 6.0.0.100 on Android.

Hi Matti,

The digit and uppercase options are purely for satisfaction of some websites password policies. Adding uppercases and digits at random places in a pronounceable/diceware password does not contribute to entropy significantly, but adding a additional word will. Moreover, such a password is not pronounceable/memorable at all. First capital letter can be remembered easily and trailing digit can be memorized as an additional word.

Hope this clears the doubt.
