Passphrase Generator

I'd like to suggest adding a new option to generate random password - generate random passphrase. 

 

Passphrase generators are becoming more useful, and it would be nice to have it built in instead of having to go to random word generator sites. These are useful for usernames, such as the one from NordPass, but also good for passwords where those passwords will need to be shared easily with colleagues (and not shared through a system like LastPass).

 

Currently I use the LastPass random password generator with only ALL CAPS  and the Easy to Read option selected to create random usernames such as RAYBKGCACHGV for any sensitive sites like online banks or credit cards. The goal is to have no personally identifiable information as part of the username.

 

I'm posting this because I filed a help desk ticket with LastPass complaining about the lack of certain characters in the random password generator. For example, LastPass never uses these characters: ,<.>:";'{[}] whereas other password generators do. Part of the response I got was the following: "We recommend using passphrases as they are better than adding special characters in short passwords" (we being the LastPass development team). So, if that's really the case, then the LastPass development team should add this feature.

This is the main thing holding me back from switching from BitWarden (other than cost).
It's kind of sad this has not already been a feature as other generators have had this for a while.

+1 for passphrase generation

 

I've actually started using BitWarden's passphrase generator and storing the results in my LastPass Family Plan.... every time I create an account, it's annoying that it's not built into LastPass and is probably a relatively easy feature to code in, provided they store a local dictionary somewhere in cache.
