Wi-Fi Password Key Generator helps ensure that your Wi-Fi password is strong.

When the average user has his or her bandwidth stolen or network otherwise compromised, it is almost always due to a weak password that was easily brute forced or easily guessed. All it takes to protect your network from the usual would-be hacker is a strong password, and while you may not know what constitutes a strong Wi-Fi password, you do not need to thanks to Wi-Fi Password Key Generator.

Wi-Fi Password Key Generator, which is developed by SecurityXploded, is freeware, which means that there are no costs or other obligations associated with downloading, installing and using this software. This program was developed for Windows XP and was updated for Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1, but it works well enough in Windows 10 since it is rather basic. If you experience any issues, manually enabling compatibility mode should do the trick.

This small and lightweight app is designed to randomize strong passwords that are practically impossible to guess and neither cost- or time-effective to brute force. This results in secure wireless networks. Wi-Fi Password Key Generator is compatible with both WEP and WPA/WPA2, which are security standards that most routers, modem-routers and mesh hardware support.

To use the program, check the WEP or WPA/WPA2 radial button appropriate to your network. Next, use the dropdown box to select the key strength. Strength ranges from 64- to 504-bit. When in doubt, you can use the default setting, but some hardware may have specific requirements, or you may have reasons for wanting the most complex password possible.

When you have the settings configured appropriately, click the large button at the bottom, which reads: Generate Wi-Fi Key. Key generation is extremely fast. You should not notice it working even on old systems. Be mindful that it does not show the generated key but rather copies it to the Windows keyboard. From here, you simply paste it—CTRL-V—into your router control panel. This program does not store a copy, so if you want a backup, you will need to do that yourself.

Wi-Fi Password Key Generator is a very intuitive program that even novice PC users will have little trouble using. Using it gives you the confidence that you’re the password for your wireless network cannot be easily compromised. Keys are not words but rather code strings that incorporate lower and upper-case letters, digits and symbols. Generating a new key is as simple as running the program again.

The program lacks options. This should not be a problem for most users. However, if you are generating a key for an environment in which there are rules—such as symbols not allowed—this software may not be suitable or you may have to generate multiple times to get one that works.
