Some Extra Uses for Make My Password


There are many situations in which Make My Password can be useful to you as a developer, other than just creating a password for your various accounts across the Web.

Here are a few of the uses I’ve found particularly helpful:

  • Custom function prefixes for WordPress Themes and Plugins (to help prevent clashing with other plugins)
  • Custom WordPress table prefixes (to help make it harder for someone to mess with your tables via SQL injection)
  • WordPress user passwords for clients
  • Complicated admin username to make it less likely to be figured out
  • Unique, complex MySQL Database name
  • Complex MySQL username and password
  • FTP username and password
  • Generating simple salt strings
