Generate random password based on a wordlist using Powershell

As a business owner or manager, it’s important to ensure that your company’s sensitive information is protected from unauthorized access. One key way to do this is by implementing strong password policies for your employees.

One common mistake that many organizations make is giving all new employees the same password. This may seem like an easy and convenient solution, but it can actually put your company’s security at risk. If an attacker gains access to one employee’s account, they can easily use the same password to gain access to other accounts within your organization.

To avoid this potential security breach, it’s important to generate unique and strong passwords for each new employee. A strong password should be difficult to guess, and should not be based on personal information that can easily be obtained by others.

One way to generate strong and unique passwords is to use a password manager. A password manager is a tool that allows you to create, store, and manage complex passwords. This can save time and effort, as you don’t have to remember multiple complex passwords yourself.

You can also use the script I have created below to help you generate simple, yet unique passwords for use during the onboarding process. It’s crucial that the user changes their password after gaining access to their new account.

To create a temporary password that is easy to remember and easy to spell, I recommend adding a lot of common words to the wordlist.
