This is a duplicate. There are lots of other threads talking about this.
Please see the links below:

  1. Brand new Bitwarden user: First impressions and To-Do's
  2. Generate pronounceable passwords
  3. Choose the word list for passphrases - #5 by MetBril
  4. Improve random password generation

Also, don’t forget to check the passphrase generator in the platforms. It already has high entropy and can secure you from security breaches, as well as keeping them memorable, so you can remember later, if necessary.

This is not a duplicate. I am not interested in generating passphrases or pronounceable passwords or inserting additional characters in the password generation. My request is different. As in KeePassXC, I would like to know the quality of the password, the level of entropy of the password and I would like to be able to choose which characters my password should consist of.

Sounds similar to this existing feature request. It has 32 votes already: Show password strength (zxcvbn) under Password Generator and Password Fields

Since there are a number of existing feature requests on the password generator, you should probably be more specific if your feature request is different from all of them.

If your request is even slightly similar to an existing one that has a larger number of votes, it is probably better to vote for that request and discuss your recommendations there due to how voting system works.

Some other feature requests I found beyond ones that K0media listed are shown below.


For special characters:

Other requests

How about this:

  1. Add an option to define a custom JS function for password generation.
  2. Add an option to define a custom JS function for password analysis.

Then let the community sort out the rest.

Sounds similar to this existing feature request. It has 32 votes already: Show password strength (zxcvbn) under Password Generator and Password Fields

Part of my request is similar to this existing feature request.

Probably duplicate request for customizing characters (10 votes, Oct 2020):
Link: Customize what special characters are allowed to use in the Password Generator

The other part of my request looks like this existing feature request.

Plus I added the screenshot of the KeePassXC password generator to give you an idea of the functionality I was requesting. I believe that it is the most comprehensive password generator out there.

This might meet your needs until BW generator becomes more robust. It’s nearly a duplicate to the keepassxc generator.

Just generate the strongest one and you wouldn’t need to worry about strength.
