Welcome

Tired with creating and managing all the passwords to different sites?

Introducing Enigmer!

Enigmer is an extension to Firefox and Chrome/Chromium browsers for creating and handling good passwords. Here are the top 3 reasons to start using Enigmer:

  1. No need to remember complex passwords
  2. Unique and long passwords created with ease
  3. Safe and secure

Passwords are a pain

As we are all very well aware, a good password should be long, complex and unique and it should be changed from time to time (see Wikipedia article). We are also aware that most of the passwords don't really achieve these goals. People usually use same passwords for different places and those passwords may not be very well designed: pet names, birthdays, names of the people we know, etc. Have you ever heard someone to change their password whitout any specific reason, just because it's a good practise?

Why is it, that we all know what we should do, but we just don't do it? I'm not an expert on this, for me it's all about being lazy and I think that's the case most people have. Remembering really good passwords and changing them frequently isn't something we love to do.
This issue has lately got some attention because of multiple hacking incidents, where the black hats have broken into web services and shared their findings across the internet. Millions of usernames and passwords have been exposed. Some of the administrators of these sites haven't done their job as they should and that's why bad guys have been very successfull in breaking their security systems.
Usually you have no way to know, if a site is secured as it should be, so the only thing you can do, is to use good and unique passwords.

Luckily there are tools available to make password handling a bit easier. Now there's one more, Enigmer.

Yeah, that's what we need, a new tool (again)

So why should you start to use a new tool, there are numerous tools available already?
The way Enigmer works is a bit different and it has some advantages over other tools. For example, the way you change your password only needs a few mouse clicks.
Need to remember a master password in order to get your real password? No need for that in Enigmer.
Someone stole Enigmer information from your computer? Don't worry, that's only the half of the information needed to solve your password.

After the setup, Enigmer does all the hard work for you behind the scenes and it's guaranteed to create passwords that meet the preferred password goals (Wikipedia article on passwords). When you log in to a service, Enigmer may transform your input into a 32 characters long string that contains all the characters allowed in a password. You don't have to worry about it, Enigmer does it for you.
