firefoxIf you need to create hard-to-guess encrypted passwords usually we have to buy expensive software or use online tools which are able to convert passwords and text to encrypted piece of code impossible to convert unless you have got the right key. But hey! Did you know that Firefox can help you here…for free!? In fact, the red fox allows you to use a nice java bookmarklet which is able to create encrypted passwords in a matter of two seconds. Also, if you want to encrypt text so that anybody will never know what you wrote down, still, Firefox is the right guy for you! All the stuff Firefox encrypts is “Base 64 encoding”.

  1. Open Firefox.
  2. Delete everything contained in the Web address field and paste the following code:
    javascript:btoa(“mypassword”)
    and press Enter. Firefox will return you with a blank page containing your password…totally encrypted!
  3. To decode the code back, paste this code:
    javascript:atob(“bXlwYXNzd29yZA==”)
  4. In case it doesnt work make sure to  type the quotation marks directly from your own keyboard (no copy and paste).

    For those who don’t know, this code is called Base 64. A half decent way to make secure passwords, but not a strong encryption scheme for text.
