How to generate a strong password

The Password Generator helps you generate strong passwords. You start the Password Generator and configure the password generation settings. Kaspersky Password Manager then generates a strong password for you.

By default, the application generates passwords consisting of 12 characters and containing uppercase and lowercase letters of the Latin alphabet, numerals, and special characters. You can select the symbols to be used by the application to generate the password.

To generate a strong password:

  1. Go to the Passwords section.
  2. Enter your main password and click the Unlock storage button.
  3. In the upper-right part of the window, click the More actions button.
  4. Select the Password generator menu item.

    The Password generator window opens, and the application starts generating a password with default settings.

  5. Perform one of the following actions:
    • If you do not want to use a specific type of symbol in the password, clear the corresponding check box.
    • If you only want to use specific symbols in the password, specify them in the text field in the lower part of the window.

    The application automatically generates new passwords when you change the settings and displays prompts about the strength of generated passwords.

  6. Click the Copy to clipboard button.

    The generated password is copied to clipboard. You will be able to manually paste the password into the required field.

For your convenience, the last 5 passwords generated and copied to clipboard are saved locally in your browser until you close the browser. The passwords are only available in the history of the browser you used to generate the passwords.
