Make Random and Pronouncable Passwords with PWGen

pwgen_cropped.jpgWindows and Linux command-line utility PWGen generates random, meaningless passwords but uses letter and number combinations that can be pronounced and memorized. Simply typing “pwgen” and hitting Enter will shoot back a screen full of passwords to choose from, helping to prevent shoulder-surfing sneaks, but you can easily hone down and customize the results with a few command-line switches.

PWGen is a free download available in many Linux repositories and as a Windows installation at the link below.
