Iconic Passwords is a revolutionary new app that makes passwords easier to remember, harder to hack, and painless to type! Simply memorize a few sequential images and generate a unique password for that combination at any time using our app. Use the 'copy' button to save the password to your cliboard and you never even have to glance at it!

As there about 72 allowed characters for modern passwords, you can imagine any possible combination as a number expressed in base72. Most passwords require a minimum of 8 characters, so the number of possibilities can be expressed as 72^8, about 7.2e14. Iconic Passwords creates its own base in excess of 3000 (and growing) which allows for similar robutness, or 'entropy', with choosing as few as 3 icons, and substantially more if you choose 4 or 5 and/or encode this string of images with a PIN #.

Simply memorize a few sequential images and you can use Iconic Passwords to copy your generated passcode to your clipboard at any time. Your passwords will be easier to remember, painless to type, and harder to hack! Best of all, Iconic Passwords never asks for or stores any of your data, and while it uses a base conversion algorithm to generate your password, there is nothing about the algorithm itself that could ever suggest what your password might be. In other words, each passcode is unatainable without your sequence of images.

Thanks given to Randall Munroe, author of the brilliant webcomic xkcd, for inspiring the idea!


It is inadvisable to use the same icon more than once as it makes your password easier to guess.
