Description

The Wolfram Password Generator Reference App is the perfect tool for producing new secure passwords and for analyzing your current passwords. Security experts have identified weak passwords as a prime vulnerability in corporate and personal security. You'll be able to generate better passwords for better security anywhere you go. - Generate quick and secure passwords at the click of a button - Create single or multiple passwords of any length - Choose custom options including alphabetic, alphanumeric, pronounceable, or word-based passwords, and even generate four-digit PINs - Apply specific rules to allow or disallow lowercase letters, special characters, and more - Test a password's strength and compute a score based on detailed criteria to help identify weaknesses - Compute the time it would take to hack any password The Wolfram Password Generator Reference App is powered by the Wolfram|Alpha computational knowledge engine and is created by Wolfram Research, makers of Mathematica—the world's leading software system for mathematical research and education. The Wolfram Password Generator Reference App uses the http Wolfram|Alpha API and draws on the computational power of Wolfram|Alpha's supercomputers over a 3G, 4G, or Wi-Fi connection.

  • Cool app, but....

    It's nice to get exhaustive stats on passwords, but a password generator that doesn't allow for generated passwords to be copied onto the clipboard is just plain silly. Generate that super-strong 27-character password, then… manually transcribe it for actual use; in what universe does that make sense?!?
  • Great app, but hasn't been updated in years!

    I bought this app when it first came out and it has served me well, but now it has been two years, since it received it's last update and there is a good chance that with the new iOS update it will not work at all, since iOS keeps complaining it will slow down my iPad and iPhone if used... how about updating your apps ... how about updating them, so all the money I have spent in them isn't going down the drain! I wish developers would stop selling apps they really don't plan to support or stand by ... Otherwise this is an excellent and very useful app!

    The best app on this topic I have EVER found. Now I create weekly hard-to-crack passwords to protect my systems. Thank you.
  • Old and not thought out…

    I should have seen the outdated update info before I bought this, but so be it… Wolfram devs were NOT AT ALL thinking of the user when creating this app. Generation is great, but copying to the clipboard is ridiculous. You generate 10 passwords, you end up copying ALL 10 to the clipboard (long-press your finger for about 6 seconds - SLoW). Not useful when trying to change a site's password while mobile. Horrible… And you have to type in the number of characters and results. Why not use sliders? It's quicker. But the technical info of your results are interesting. Don't buy this app, there are MUCH better apps our there (like Free Password Generator by Elke Luders).
  • Requires Internet and can't copy passwords

    I get that Wolfram wants to fit this into their normal setup with questions and generating detailed answers, but the end result is that this app requires Internet (not great for iPod touch) and you can't actually copy the password, which is the whole point of it. @eventualbuddha

    Yes this app does what it says on the box. However when you create a good strong password, there's no way to copy that and use it for say a website or where ever I might need a password/login. The only way is to copy all ten generated passwords paste'em as text into Evernote (or another text editor) and then select the one password you need copy-paste into whatever login. Or you could of course go old school pen and paper:-) I did try to reach support, but support is just to well hidden on their website.
  • Generates passwords, but nearly useless beyond that

    The options for this app are great in so far as it generates strong passwords in almost any way you care to generate them, and does password analysis. A pity that it is almost impossible to use unless you are want to read the password off your iOS device and type it in by hand on another device. First - it requires a data connection because the passwords are actually generated on Wolfram Alpha, and you are at the mercy of their servers current work load. Second - there is no facility to save passwords. Third - Worst of all, you cannot select text. It only let's you copy the entire text of the page returned from WA, which always contains a lot more text than the password. Major Fail.
  • no print service or save multiple passwords to a text file

    not really practical to have a nice app (and this is a nice app - remembering it's low cost) and not be able to save (if you can i can't find it) to a file or to print it... maybe i just don't know??? i do know you can save an image (one password at a time) and paste it to another apps document... also, they give you the same info at the wolfram site as what you see here... no real help??

    I'm so surprised this app doesn't have any reviews. It's a beautiful and informative app. I started using KyPass to manage passwords recently, but was annoyed to find that it had no password generator. Enter Wolfram. It will generate a password AND tell me how long it'll take to crack it. Very cool. Great purchase.
