Today I released the Strong Password Generator plugin for WordPress.
Last week I released a plugin called Expire Passwords which is meant to harden site security by requiring certain users to change their passwords on a regular basis.
The plugin got some early users straight away, one of whom suggested that it might also be nice to give users a way to generate a strong password, making it even easier to reset it when prompted.
What a great idea! So great, in fact, that I thought it could really be a standalone feature and plugin in it’s own right.
After a little research, I couldn’t find an existing plugin that provided the experience I was envisioning. So I built one myself.
Know the purpose of your product and listen to early adopters. You might discover a completely new idea just waiting to branch off into it’s own product for users to love.
