Buy Later sounds pretty cool. I always am pissed when i see something I want on amazon, wait because it is too expensive and then miss it when it goes on sale. very neat idea.

Fix the link to Utterz :)

Aibek

Fixed! Sorry for that.

Jo

Please fix the link to PasswordBird, its to FontStruct.

Thanks!

Alen

Nice list. I like the Badge Creator.

I would remove PasswordBird as a recommendation, it creates horrible passwords. The passwords are only 8 characters with numbers and lowercase letters. It does not utilize uppercase letters or special characters unless you enter them first, which most users won’t do. You cannot adjust the strength or length of the passwords it creates.

These passwords would be cracked in under 2 seconds.

This is a rotten password creator.

Aibek

I agree it can do a better job. Please note we don’t really promote it but mention it as an alternative service along with some other password generators. You can check out other password generators that we have profiled.
