Readable Passphrase Generator

The Readable Passphrase Generator generates passphrases which are (mostly) grammatically correct but nonsensical. These are easy to remember (for humans) but difficult to guess (for humans and computers).

Developed in C# with a KeePass plugin, console app and public API. Runs wherever the .NET Framework, .NET Core or Mono are available.

See MakeMeAPassword to generate readable passphrases online (without KeePass). Or Steven Zeck's Javascript port (runs entirely in your browser).

Click here for step-by-step instructions to install the KeePass plugin.

Download KeePass plugin or console app

Developers can install from NuGet (and see the API)
