A Better Password Generator

SuperGenPass is a different kind of password manager. Instead of storing your passwords on your hard disk or online—where they are vulnerable to theft and data loss—SuperGenPass uses a hash algorithm to transform a master password into unique, complex passwords for the Web sites you visit. There’s no software to install: SuperGenPass is a bookmarklet and runs right in your Web browser. And since it never stores or transmits your passwords, it’s ideal for use on multiple and public computers. It’s also completely free.

I did a full write-up on SuperGenPass and why I forked my own version in a blog entry.

How It Works

Step 1 Type your master password.

Step 2 Click on the SuperGen­Pass bookmarklet.

Step 3 Your password is generated and populated.

Please note, it is strongly advised you do not use the bookmarklet due to the reasons described here. Although, this bookmarklet adds some protection over the original.

Other version's of SuperGenPass are available, but in the original format, not my forked version:
