Random New User Password


Inspired by and a couple of hours of free time, this JavaScript-powered plugin adds a button to the Add User screen, which, when clicked, generates a strong random password for your new user. This should shave off a couple of seconds of your time when creating a new user.

Props to @1Popov for the random dice image.


  • Add some randomness and save some time...


Nothing special.

  1. Upload plugin folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Generate secure random passwords


Can I see the password that got generated?

Only if you really want to.

How do I get it to…?

Doesn’t do much at the moment. Send over your feature requests or even code and they’ll be implemented as soon as possible.
