(Web Client)

Pleasant Password Server allows for the automated generation of secure passwords based on required criteria.

Paired with the convenience of PPASS storing your passwords so you don't have to remember them, you can now have incredibly secure passwords with little effort.

Password Profiles: are useful for generating many passwords with the same criteria (length, lower case, numbers, etc.).

Password Generator: is useful for one-time creation of a secure password.

Supported Criteria:

Pleasant Password Server supports the following criteria for password generation:

  • Length - this value will dictate the exact number of characters used in the password
  • Upper Case - will cause the generated password to include at least 1 Upper Case alphabetic character (A - Z)
  • Lower Case - will cause the generated password to include at least 1 Lower Case alphabetic character (a - z)
  • Numbers (Digits) - will cause the generated password to include at least 1 number (0 - 9)
  • Symbols - will cause the generated password to include at least one symbol (`~!@#$%^&*()-_=+[]{}\\|;:' ",<)

Password Profiles

The Password Profiles allow the generation of multiple passwords using the same Criteria, and provide the capability to re-use specific password criteria.

Creating a Password Profile: The Password Profiles are accessed from the main Navigation bar by the menu "Password Profiles".

From this page you will be able to add a new Password Profile by clicking "Add new record".

Then you can Name the Profile and set the desired criteria. These profiles can be edited and deleted as needed.

Editing a Password Profile: does not affect existing passwords, only future passwords generated using the profile.
