Online password generators like GRC's Perfect Passwords, and the one above, are very convenient, but by using them you must trust them not to remember your password and share it with third parties. I invite you to download one of my free and open source offline password generators so your pc can create strong passwords with the click of a button. Since these utilities run on your computer, you can be sure that they won't share your password with anyone.

The Windows GUI version combines data from the Cryptographically Secure Random Number Generator (CSPRNG) built into Windows with random mouse movements and other system information (CPU usage, memory usage, high-precision timers, etc.) to produce extremely secure passwords that are completely unique to you. The Linux version creates passwords from true random noise obtained from /dev/random.
