Online Password Generator

[June 30th 2017 Comment]
A company recently contacted me about this page and asked if I could add their newly announced password generation tool alongside the one linked from this site. The company is called "CompariTech" and I've never heard of them. Anyway, this article is 10 years old, I no longer recommend using a website to generate passwords, can you trust they do not store your password and leave a tracking cookie?

Use a password manager instead. Read this wikipedia article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Password_manager

This is quite a useful site for generating secure passwords. You specify the length and what the password should contain (numbers, punctuation, capitals, etc). Then you select how many passwords you want so you can either choose or distribute them.
