Release date: October 2, 2023

We already had it, and now you can use it whenever you want for your accounts. The Password Generator is here.

We eagerly counted the days to release this feature to enable you to generate strong and secure passwords anytime. Previously, the bot in charge of the password rotations via automation tasks was the only one using the Password Generator.

Now, you can use the Cerby browser extension to generate passwords that meet the password requirements of your applications and service providers. You only need to select the applicable password strength rules:

  • Length

  • Uppercase letters

  • Lowercase letters

  • Digits

  • Symbols

Based on your selection, the Password Generator also lets you know how weak or strong the generated password is.

IMPORTANT: A password is stronger the more rules you select and the longer the password is. According to Hive Systems, it would take 226 years to hack a 12-character password that comprises numbers, upper and lowercase letters, and symbols.

Check out the Password Generator in the Cerby browser extension, as shown in Figure 1.
