password-generator

Answers for security questions, e.g. "What was your first pet's name?"

Appropiate where verification takes place over the telephone or in situations where unlimited guessing is impossible. The issue with answering security questions truthfully is perhaps your pet's name can be found by searching Facebook.

When something absolutely, positively needs to remain private use one of these. An army of computers relentlessly trying requires a lifetime of guesses, a giganormous budget and a bit of luck.

Appropiate when the items being protect might likely be copied to a specialized computer system for password cracking. Encrypted hard drives, usb drives, zip/rar archives, etc.

Appropiate when using a password manager so there would be little need to commit these to memory or manually enter them except in unusual circumstances.
