Username & Password Generator

Use the Bitwarden generator tool to easily create strong passwords and unique usernames. The password generator is available in all Bitwarden clients and the username generator is available in the web vault, browser extension, and desktop app.

If you're not a current Bitwarden user, you can also test our free password generator at https://bitwarden.com/password-generator/.

Generate a Password

To generate a strong password:

Password Types

Password

Passwords are randomly generated strings of a customizable set of character types. Options for passwords include:

  • Length: Number of characters in your password.

  • Minimum Numbers: Minimum number of numbers in your password if 0-9 is enabled.

  • Minimum Special: Minimum number of special characters in your password if !@#$%^&* is enabled.

  • A-Z: Include uppercase letters in your password.

  • a-z: Include lowercase letters in your password.

  • 0-9: Include numbers in your password.

  • !@#$%^&*: Include special characters in your password.

  • Avoid Ambiguous Characters: Prevent your passwords from having both a 1 and l or both a 0 and o.

Passphrase

Passphrases are randomly generated groups of words, for example panda-lunchroom-uplifting-resisting. Options for passphrases include:

  • Number of Words: Number of words in your passphrase.

  • Word Separator: Character to use to separate words in your passphrase (- in the above example).

  • Capitalize: Capitalize the first letter of each word in your passphrase.

  • Include Number: Include a single numerical character in your passphrase.

Generate a Username

To generate a username:

Username Types

Plus Addressed Email

Select this type to use your email provider's sub-addressing (aka "plus addressing" or "aliasing") capabilities. This will generate a plus addressed (named for the + and random string of characters) username based on your specified Email Address.

On the Add/Edit Item screen of browser extensions and desktop apps, you can select between generating username with a Random (e.g. alice+gsd4aqqe@bitwarden.com) string or one based on the item's Website Name (e.g. alice+github.com@bitwarden.com). Website Name is limited to the Add/Edit screen on browser and desktop as it requires knowledge of the login's URI, in other locations the username generator will default to Random.

tip

Why use Plus Addressed Email?

Plus addressed emails allow you to filter your email for all the junk mail you get when signing up for a new service. Signing up for a service with the username alice+rnok6xsh@bitwarden.com will still send emails to alice@bitwarden.com, but you can easily filter emails that include +rnok6xsh to prevent them from clogging up your inbox.

Catch-all Email

Select this type to use your domain's configured catch-all inbox. This will generate a random email address at your specified Domain.

On the Add/Edit Item screen of browser extensions and desktop apps, you can select between generating username with a Random (e.g. bqzjlero@gardenllc.com) string or one based on the item's Website Name (e.g. twitter.com@gardenllc.com). Website Name is limited to the Add/Edit screen on browser and desktop as it requires knowledge of the login's URI, in other locations the username generator will default to Random.

tip

Why use Catch-all Email?

In some cases, catch-all inboxes are used by companies with their own domain (for example, @bitwarden.com) to prevent emails from going to your personal inbox and instead route them to a shared (and sometimes unchecked) company inbox in case record of them is needed in the future.

In other cases, individuals with their own domain (for example, @gardenllc.com) use catch-all setups to route email from accounts with privacy-oriented usernames (for example, twitter.com@gardenllc.com) to their actual inbox.

Random Word

Select this type to generate a random word for your username. Options for random words include:

  • Capitalize: Capitalize your username.

  • Include Number: Include a 4-digit number in your username.
