Description

A Python script using the Python 'Secrets' module to generate random passwords with the optional inclusion of special characters. Use a unique password for every login and never reuse passwords. Store your passwords in a password manager like KeePass, LastPass, or BitWarden

Use also to generate random login names as well for added security to financial account logins or anywhere a screen name isn't necessary.

Usage

usage: newpass [option] [length]

Generate a random password of a specified length

positional arguments:

length        Desired password length. If not specified, default is 23

optional arguments:

-h, --help    show this help message and exit

--symbol, -s  Include all symbols in the password

--limit, -l   Limit symbols used to !@#$%&*

examples:

newpass - generates a 23 character alphanumeric password
newpass 20 - generates a 20 character alphanumeric password
newpass -s 25 - generates a 25 character password that can include all symbols
newpass -l 15 - generates a 15 character password that can include symbols !@#$%&*

If both -s and -l flags are used (-sl, -ls) the -s takes 
precedence and the -l is ignored

Passwords created always start with a letter, contain at least
one capital and one lowercase letter and at least 3 digits

Notes:

Some sites restrict the use of symbols. The default does not include symbols.

The -s flag includes a larger list of symbols (!"#$%&'()*+,-:;=?@[]^_~)

The -l flag includes a limited set of symbols (!@#$%*&) for increased acceptance to some sites.

Use a unique password for every site and never reuse passwords.
Store them in a password manager such as KeePass, LastPass, or Bitwarden
