This small component can really generate random passwords. But I think the following improvements will make it better: 1. add English language file 2. generate the password without refresh the page (maybe you need AJAX?) 3. add Copy button beside or below the result box.

Thanks to the author.

Thank you very much for your review. A installable english-translation is available on the download site. A copy button works well only with IE, other browsers have too many restrictions.

I will think about your second suggestion.

Just installed and test...Can be useful for propose to users a password generator...Anyway it was not what I thinking...A great value for this stuff would be to force users to choose a strong password (when they subscribe to the site or when they update they password) instead giving a simple password suggestions...For example a method to force users to include a least a number and uppercase character...

This is a nice and easy to use tool to generate fairly complex passwords, No excuses for your members to use easy to guess telephone numbers or cats birthdays for their passwords. Tool tips are in German, but it took me 10 minutes over a cup of coffee to replace with English, and I sent the file to the compilers. The file you need is at:
Thank you folks
