Generate strong yet memorable passwords
Authored by: macshome on Sep 23, '04 11:29:32AM

Mac OS X 10.3 has a built-in password assistant, but I only know one way to access it.

1. Open the Keychain Access utility.
2. Select Edit > Change Password for Keychain...
3. Click the "i" button to open the Password Assistant.
4. Test your passwords in the "New Password" field. You don't need to change your password to test new ones.

Have fun.

Generate strong yet memorable passwords

This was already posted as a hint here at MacOS X Hints, if you want to see images of how it looks:

(I can't work out how to post direct links here at MOSXH!)

Note to RobG:
There are a couple of typos in the hint:

1. the erfcxsiol,mj password has an additional < at the end which shouldn't be there (probably a remnant of your improving my html ;-)
2. The second technique has a second number 2 in its title.

Cheers,
JKT
