    Greetings,

    KeePass's Password Generator can be used to create UUIDs [also known as GUIDs].

    The following pattern will generate valid Version 4 (random) UUIDs:

    h{8}\-h{4}\-\4h{3}\-[\8\9\a\b]h{3}\-h{12}
    

    Naturally, the above can be saved into a profile. KeePass 1.x creates one UUID at a time, while 2.x generates a batch of the same.

    A big thank you to Dominik Reichl and everyone else who contributes to KeePass. It's a most essential tool!

    Cheers,

    Jason [alexanderino]
