RPG is a password generator that addresses the need for random passwords (and other random character strings) of specific lengths and constitutions. There are many password-generating utilities available, representing many different philosophies. RPG's design goal is to produce the most secure passwords constrained by the limitations -- length and character set -- imposed by the systems in which the passwords are to be used. RPG is most useful in concert with a keychain or password wallet.

Appears nice. But a situation I encounter frequently is that I am required to include a symbol in a password, and I can choose only from a small subset of all possible symbols. No application I've found includes the option of specifying a subset of symbols from which to select. RPG allows one to EXclude a set of symbols, and that's progress, but it would be nice to specify just INcluded symbols.

RPG can do that too, but it's easy to miss because the developer forgot to label it. Under the "Punctuation & Symbols" checkbox there are two text input boxes. The first box is unlabelled, but it should be labelled "Include". That's where you can type symbols to be included.

For example, if a website allows passwords to contain only lowercase letters and the characters "!?$", check "Lowercase Letters" and type "!?$" in the unlabelled box.

After you set it up, you can save those settings as a "schema"; click the ">" button to show the Schema window and click the "Add" button. When you need to change a password, you can just select the right schema for that website.

A password generator with roughly the same set of options is already included with OSX 10.4. Open System Preferences, go to "Users", click on any user, go to the "password" tab, press "Change password" and then click on the "key" icon next to the "new password" textfield. Voilà.

It's pretty stupid of Apple to have hidden this nifty little thing so deeply, though.

Just installed. Whenever I try to click any checkbox or button I receive the following error:

"NSReceiverEvaluationScriptError: 4 (1)"

I am running 10.4.6 on a 17" Powerbook. Thanks!

This problem ["NSReceiverEvaluationScriptError: 4 (1)"]is likely to be caused by something other than a bug in RPG 1.6.1. A misbehaving plugin is the likely culprit.

See for an example of a SIMBL plugin that causes other applications to suffer this fate.

This little app is really sweet; generates passwords any way you want. Couldn't ask for anything more in a password generator.
Works fine in OS 10.3.9, even though stated requirements are 10.4 or greater.

Easy. Handy. Works like you'd expect it to. You can tell it to leave out particular characters (the letter "I" and the number "1" for instance) to make passwords easier to read. Makes copying and pasting painless, which is the best way to encourage use of random passwords.
