I had initially made this as a Windows app, but have since made it into a website.Description:
Provides a grid for making secure passwords.Thought behind it:
It was late at night and I was watching Star Trek (the new movie with Chris Pine as Kirk) and I dozed off. Had a dream that I had shuffled off this mortal coil and my wife needed to get into one of my accounts. She didn't have access to my password manager account. So, I was thinking of a way that I can not only have them as hard copy (stored in a notebook in the safe) but also have them in my password manager. Every time you visit the page, the grids are different and no grid repeats... at least it shouldn't.How I use it:
Every time I need a new password I grab a sheet (I printed some out front and back of a page and each has 6 grids on it) and circle the group of character that I want to use as the password, like a word search puzzle, (making sure to follow that site's guidelines for passwords) and then indicate the start and end. It may sound like a pain, but it's not (at least I don't think so). I write the description/website at the top along with the username. I have also included a random string and a pin that can be use as a suffix/prefix to the password.Website: https://theblindhouse.com/otg
Now, I am not a web developer... like at all. I just googled my way to using PHP enough to make this page. With that said, there is more I would like to do and if anyone is willing to lend some Knowledge, I would appreciate it!To Do:
(The bit I need help on)
- Make it so the page can be printed out on 1 sheet of paper w/o needing to mess with the printer dialog. I.E. Make it super easy to print for the end user.
Printing seems to work fine on Chrome, I can print the full page. No so much in Safari]
- Make it mobile friendly. I tried to use CSS and add @media queries but without any luck.
- Style the table MUCH BETTER than it currently is.
A way to be able to "circle" the letters in the grid (again like a word search) and have it print that way. This is no where near the level I can reach and is probably not going to happen, but I can wish. This was way easier than I thought it would be. I don't have them circle, but I change the cell background on click.
- Different color for numbers and symbols in grid
