Random Passphrase Generator

Welcome to the Random Passphrase Generator website. Use this website to create passwords that are easy to remember but hard to guess.

What is a passphrase?

A passphrase as a series of unrelated words that you can use as a password. Three words are much easier to remember than a series of random characters, letters and numbers, yet they are much harder to hack. Computer experts use passphrases whenever possible, and you should, too!

Why use this website?

  • This site protects your information when communicating between the server and your browser, using HTTPS. Many sites don't do this, which makes the newly created password vulnerable to attack.
  • It's easy to adjust your passphrase to meet common requirements. For instance, if spaces aren't allowed, you can replace them with dashes.
  • You can also add a number or special character, or you can uppercase part of the passphrase.
  • When you're ready to use your passphrase, just double-click to select it, rather than highlighting and copying it.

What should you do after you create a passphrase?

The best way to keep track of your passwords is with a password manager. I recommend 1Password. While you should never write your passphrase on a piece of paper, if someone did do that, a series random words is less obvious than a traditional password.
