Jpass - Random Password Generator

Necessity is the mother of invention as they say, and I was fed up with trying to think up new passwords. To remedy the situation I created Jpass. Jpass is a password generator written in Javascript. It can be embedded into a web page and allows you to you to create random passwords with the click of a mouse button. It is most useful in web page sign up forms, and the passwords generated are strong and easily pronounceable.

Compatibility

I've tested it on Firefox 1.x, 2.x and 3.x, Mozilla, Opera, Internet Explorer 4, 5, 6 and 7 and it works. If you have Javascript enabled you should be fine.

Version history

v1.0 - 15:43 / 3/3/2000 : Initial release.
v1.1 - 10:58 / 8/3/2000 : Fixed variable name bug which stopped Jpass working in Netscape Navigator.

Download

You can download JPass as a tarball (.tgz) or as a zip file.

If you need a zip utility grab 7Zip.
