Jumble Password – Create Unique IDs and Passwords on Linux

Jumble Password Generator for Linux
Written by Martins D. Okoi

Jumble Password is an electron-based utility app that you can use to create unique password combinations using your date of birth and name. It uses a random number permutation algorithm called the Fisher-Yates Shuffle Algorithm to jumble up sequences.

A typical case scenario is if you want to create a password for a website project you’re working on. You can choose to enter random names or dates to get unique suggestions each time you hit the submit button.

It features a simple and minimalist application window containing nothing but the app title, app description, 2 placeholder fields for the name and date, a submit button, the placeholder field to display generated passwords, and a credits section to its developer.

  • Seriously? Promote a way to generate (unmemorable) passwords with extremely small entropy?

    Just stick to pass phrases: easy to remember, lots of entropy.

    • Martins Divine Okoi

      LOL
      Honestly, I can’t remember a quarter of my passwords. I just let my browsers and password managers do the remembering for me.
      So, maybe it is an issue that the passwords are unmemorable to you but it isn’t even a conversation starter to me. I have no intention of remembering my passwords because:
      1. I have too many accounts
      2. My passwords are too complex

      • It’s_not_ high entropy, though. It’s even lower than a randomly generated password of the same length. Using pass phrases (common words in unusual combinations) has vastly higher entropy, and they _are_ memorable. Sure, I mostly just let my password manager remember them too, but they are far harder to crack.

        This is just a terrible idea, because it’s a low entropy solution masquerading as high.

          Oh, I see what you’re saying now.

    After all these years, I remain mystified about the purpose of password generation tools. This one: OK, it does generate a password from one’s birthday. So what? In what way is the resulting password “better”? If it is high in entropy, it is not likely to be easy to commit to memory, and vice-versa. So, why would anyone want to use it? Or any other password generation tool, at that. There are quite a few very simple techniques that enable people to generate pretty solid passwords with their own minds. Dythtwdapgp?Iiele,dyt?

      “In what way is the resulting password “better”? ” – It has a higher entropy than normal.

      “If it is high in entropy, it is not likely to be easy to commit to memory, and vice-versa” – Correct. I don’t want to commit my passwords to memory. I have to many accounts with too complex passwords to remember.

      “There are quite a few very simple techniques that enable people to generate pretty solid passwords with their own minds” True – But not everyone has as good as a memory as you do bro. I leave the memory duties to my machines and password managers.

      • IJK

        Even with password managers, an application like this is rather superfluous. I already gave you an example on how to generate, directly at the keyboard, a good password, with high entropy, that can be stuck into your password manager, without having to go through a password generator. Iywaeoap,Icgyamayw. This is easy; even the most technophonic people can do it.
