WP Password Generator

WP Password Generator takes the hassle out of creating new WordPress users by generating random, secure passwords with one click.

Notice: With the native password generation features being introduced in WordPress 4.3 this plugin is no longer necessary to generate strong passwords. You can read more about the plugin sunsetting on the developer's blog.

When administrators create new users through the WordPress admin interface (wp-admin/user-new.php), they are forced to come up with a password for the new user. The administrator is faced with a choice: use a separate password generator app or waste precious time coming up with a clever password only one person will ever see.

WP Password Generator takes the hassle out of creating new user passwords. Simply click "Generate Password" and your user has a unique, 7-16 character password. The password generator function is also totally pluggable, so you can easily change the way passwords are generated in order to meet your standards.

Please note that this plugin does require JavaScript to be enabled in order to work. Without JavaScript, the generator will simply be unavailable.
