Password Grid is a small program for Windows.
It has been inspired by
(but is not in any way part of that project)
and is intended as a useful application for users of hexagonal password grids.
There is also a
with less features.
- Hexagonal grid for brainstorming about different ways to create passwords
- Path counting for estimating strength of different polyline paths
- Create random paths
- Nothing is saved, only shown on screen, so you can safely try your supersecret path ideas
- I might add ability for manual save later, but automatic save never.

- Better randomness for random paths

Small example of how Password Grid could be used ...
1) Select settings you like and create a random path.
Here I used grid size 17x12 with path length 12-15 and 2-4 turns with no overlap.
I also selected short secret prefix and program gives random suggestion.
2) Add some drawings around the path which will help you to remember it.
(Here path starts from down, goes near "heart" and ends parallel to left side of smaller "mountain".)
3) Delete original path.
4) Now you can draw these to your real password grid (e.g. Enigmaze) using invisible ink.
Even if somebody manages to see the ink, he would not know how to create password from them.
How you create password from complex path or image is for you to decide.
It doesn't have to be straightforward.
