Password Factory is the most powerful password generator available. It allows you to create many types of passwords and it is made so that it is always available at your fingertips. It can generate several different types of passwords, plus it has the optional ability to store previously generated passwords.
Randomized passwords, which will give you a password comprised of random characters, symbols and numbers. Pattern based passwords, which create a password based upon a pattern of your choosing. Pronounceable passwords that are comprised of random pronounceable strings. Passphrase passwords, which will generate passwords that have multiple random words. New to 3.0 is the Advanced password type, which allows for combining and transforming passwords into new formats.
Not only can you generate many types of passwords, but you can also have it run in your menubar or in the notification center. You can even set a hotkey to have a password generated and have it ready immediately for use. Additionally an optional iCloud sync is newly available for 3.0, when enabled it will store your settings and they will be available to all your devices running Password Factory.
And don’t forget the new iOS version which gives the power of Password Factory to all iOS devices!

Thats what I want!
It took me a while to find this app. I just wanted an icon in the menu bar that I could click on to give me a password. Even LastPass, that I rely on, does not have a straight forward way of generating a password from the menu bar app. I think this is just great!
My favorite password generator!
I have tried a lot of password manager apps, as well as dedicated password generators, to generate passwords over the years. This one is the most customizable! I use it religiously. Wish it was ported to iOS so that I could use it on the iPhone too!
Can generate random strings or longer pronounceable phrases. The option to exclude characters that tend to be confused for one another is a welcome option.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
