Wireless Key Generator
More and more devices and handsets can connect to hotspots and get instant Internet access. However, in order to make sure that only authorized users benefit from one's wireless connection, some protection measures need to be enforced and a good password is always the way to start.
One way to create such a password is to use a word, phrase or sentence that cannot be guessed by any other person. Another way is to use an application.
Wireless Key Generator can come in handy if you want to create powerful passwords that cannot be broken by intruders.
The software application features a very user-friendly interface that only requires the user to specify the type of encryption they prefer, be it Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA/WPA2), depending on the security capabilities of the router.
It should be noted that it is not advisable to choose WEP as there are numerous dedicated applications that can be used to crack the code and reveal it within minutes.
On the other hand, when selecting Wi-Fi Protected Access, one will be able to specify the key strength, ranging from 64 bits (8 characters) to 504 bits (63 characters).
When generating a password that has more than 60 characters, it is quite difficult to try to remember it and enter it whenever needed. This is why Wireless Key Generator offers the option of copying it to the clipboard and pasting where needed, or saving it to a TXT file.
Needless to say, the files where the passwords are pasted need to be stored in a secure place and even encrypted, if possible, in order to prevent prying eyes from finding them out. They can be copied to any USB flash drive as long as it is always carried by the owner.
To sum it up, Wireless Key Generator is of great use to those who want to be sure that their wireless connection is not abused by strangers and want to protect it with an impenetrable key.
