please let it a try.
If you create a random password (on the browser plugin) with max length of 10 (in total),
with all the A-Z,a-z,0-9, [email protected]#$%^&*
a minimum number 9 (for example)
It will generate a password long 12 character! (instead of the max length of 10).
I think whit is wrong.
Give it a try on you browser plugin!
I have also faced the same issue when my mozilla firefox cant connect server so that my firefox browser was not working so first, I got a problem when I generated my website password. please help me on how to get resolve this problem.
If you specify you want a minimum of 9 digits, 1 lower case letter, 1 upper case letter and 1 special character, it’ll give you a 12 character password - 9+1+1+1=12.
What behaviour do you expect? If it’s not possible to create a 10 character password with the requirements the password is going to be longer.
Of course but I think is better that if I want 9 digit in total and 3 other, I have as result 6 digit and 3 other character (total is the MAX).
This because i think is that if a website tell me that the max is 9, I don’t have to modify my lower upper special character, but I need only to set 9 as total
You don’t thinks so?
No, I think you’re getting mixed up. You set the total length of the password you want. You then say how many digits and special characters you want. If you say 9 digits, it will include 9 numbers in the password. Leave it at 1 digit but set 9 as the length of the password.
The problem is that I want the strongest passowrd possibile.
So if I usually create 32 char password with 9 number and 9 special it works.
If after setting this, I need to generate a short passowrd, 15 char long for example, it automatically reduce the 9 special to 6.
If after this I want again a 32 char, I have every time to increase the special to 9.
I think the best solution is to change from number to % in the number o special character option.
Hope iI hope I explained myself
Numbers are not more secure than letters. The strongest password settings for a 32 character password is not the setting “min. 9 numbers, min. 9 special characters” but actually to set the minimum to 0 (setting it to 1 is advisable though to be sure that password requirements are met). This way, more characters can be any type of character, instead of some characters only being able to be numbers.
Following on from what @neubland said, a 32-character password made up of a random collection of upper and lower case letters, numbers and special characters (eight in total) is uncrackable. 70 possible characters in each of 32 positions… don’t worry about a minimum of 9 numbers!
ok ok that Isn’t more complex based on how many special char or number but I prefer it!
