Password Generator Improvements

Postby brentmrobertson » Wed Jan 15, 2020 7:55 pm

I love LastPass and use its built in Generate Secure Password frequently, but there are some improvements I'd like to see. I searched through the forums and found that many people have requested many of these features over the last decade, so I'm putting these together here rather than resurrecting one of the old threads and requesting that these features be added.

1. Allow customization of the Symbol character set. Some posters have suggested having a text box prepopulated with all of the symbols and allowing the user to edit the contents of this box to remove forbidden symbols (or select all and enter the permitted symbols). This would help with the sites that have requirements that specify a limited set of permitted symbols but also require that at least 1 symbol be present.

2. Add another "character" class to support passphrase generation. Each word could be considered its own character and users could de-select the other character classes if they want words only. The word list could be selected from a dropdown choosing between one of diceware's lists (http://world.std.com/~reinhold/diceware.html), one of EFF's lists (https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2016/07/n ... assphrases), a list that lastpass creates, or a file that is present on the user's computer.

3. Allow the user to add separators to the password. There could be a checkbox that is unchecked by default that adds a separator character between each n characters where n is selected from a text box. There could also be a checkbox that prevents copying the space between characters (so it's a display only space - not present in selected text).

4. Include the password generator in the add password dialogue. Whenever I add a new site, I have to also open the password generator. It would be nice for the password generator to already be present.

5. Have sliders/text boxes for maximum and minimum numbers of each character class. These could default to a minimum of 0 and a maximum of all. This would help with the sites that have requirements such as "there must be 1 letter, 1 number, and no more than 3 symbols".

6. Make the generated password an editable field that adjusts width based on the window width. If the password needs to be modified (perhaps the generator isn't flexible enough for this very particular site), it would be nice to be able to edit the password in the password generator instead of copying the password elsewhere to edit. If a site is flexible enough to allow passwords longer than 33 characters, the password generator does not display all of the characters even if I widen the password generator window.

7. Don't close the password generator when the copy button is clicked. I still want to refer back to the password I just generated without having to paste it somewhere else in the meantime.
