password generator with words is not always acceptable

(I am not sure this is the right forum, but I did not find any that is "simply" on general technical issues.)

I have began to systematically use the password generator. I use the "words" alternative with "hyphen" as a sub-option. However, in many cases, the generated password is not acceptable by sites, because they often require two features:

  • passwords should include both lower and upper case characters
  • passwords should also include numerical digits

As a result, what I do is to change one of the characters to upper case and add some random digits to the words before using it. No big deal, but a big of a drag; I wonder whether it is not possible to extend the password generator by mixing upper case and lower case characters and include random digits, too?

    Hello, @iherman!

    If you're not sure where to post a question, make your best guess (just as you did), and we'll move it if need be. :smile:

    I know what you mean, as I tend to add upper-case characters and numbers often myself, and it can become a bit of a drag. I've filed this as a feature request for us to look into, but I can't promise when and if we'll get to it.
