PWGen is a password generator capable of creating large amounts of cryptographically-secure passwords or passphrases consisting of words from a word list.
It uses a â€œrandom poolâ€ technique to generate random data based on user inputs (keystrokes, mouse handling) and volatile system parameters.
PWGen provides lots of options to customize passwords to the usersâ€™ various needs. Additionally, it offers strong text encryption and the creation of random data files (e.g., key files).

|2.4.0||The main feature of version 2.4.0 is the new â€œMP Password Generatorâ€ which allows generating passwords reproducibly based on a secret master password and a parameter string. This â€œpassword hasherâ€ functionality is similar to the website Hashapass. The new â€œdeterministic random generatorâ€ is related to this feature, as it enables the user to make password generation in PWGen (almost) completely reproducible; it can be activated in the MP Password Generator dialog (click on the new â€œmagic hatâ€ button in the toolbar).||Platinum||1.7.27||7||0|
