If you want, click "Launch browser to this URL" to visit the site. Type your ID in "User name". Enter your website password in "Password" or click "Generate a password" to use the password generator to create a password. Type some information if needed in "Notes". Click "OK" and the website name will be displayed in the program window.

To activate the password generator, you can also go to "Tools" tab and click "Generate a password...". There are 4 types of characters in "Characters to include" - uppercase, lowercase, numbers and special characters. By default, they're checked. You can unselect one or more according to your demands. If needed, enter the characters in the box below and the password generated will contain at least one character you entered. Type the number or click the up and down arrows to specify the password length. Click "Generate a password" to get a password. Click "Copy password to clipboard" to copy the password.

You can also check "Use template" and enter the characters as template. Each character has different meaning in the template. Click "Generate a password" and you'll get a password using the template you entered.


Tip: what you should not do? Do not use easy-to-identify and therefore easy-to-hack passwords like birthdays, house numbers, phone numbers, family names, etc. Especially, never use a Social Security number as a password. Use a unique password for each application.
