    Can we add an option to omit "similar" characters?

    i, l, o, 1, 0, I

    See the Advanced tab of the password generator.

    cheers, Paul

    p.s. that actually reduces security because you are limiting the character set. As you don't need to manually type the passwords it shouldn't be necessary.

    Haha thanks. How have I managed to miss this tab!?
    I know it reduces security. Personally I leave it on, but I use KeePass to generate passwords that I give to other people which are also temporary. I can guarantee the password the end user changes the password to will be a lot less secure than anything I give them. Also it saves me a headache trying to figure out why passwords don't work for new users. Of course they are always typing in the passwords wrong.
