Add more security to logins quickly and easily
“Usernames are often an afterthought and typically include a primary email address, first initial and last name, or even a year of birth,” says Kyle Spearrin, founder and CTO of Bitwarden. “Handling usernames with care can be a great way to strengthen online security and privacy practices.” Using the Bitwarden Generator to create both unique usernames and passwords ensures that a potential data leak from a service does not put other accounts at risk or reveal any useful information about a user so that hackers can take advantage of it in future attacks.
Use the Bitwarden generator to easily create unique usernames
The generator provides an option to create a random “more addressed email”, such as [email protected], for email providers that support this feature. More addressing provides additional options for managing mailboxes and can also reveal any services that have sold email addresses to third parties. Other options include an email address generated on a specific domain for a catch-all email account, or a simple random word and number to use as a non-email username.
Everyone should have access to internet security, regardless of their budget. In keeping with this cause, Bitwarden includes the ability to generate secure usernames and passwords in every plan within the Bitwarden desktop app, web client, and browser extensions, providing a valuable security tool. accessible to everyone.
Username generation in mobile apps will appear in a future release.
