How to generate a password with iCloud Keychain for OS X Mavericks

iCloud Keychain is meant to be an easy way to manage passwords on your Apple devices. When password management is easier, using stronger passwords is easier. Since it can be tough to come up with strong, unique passwords, good password managers will generate them for you, and iCloud Keychain in OS X Mavericks is no exception. Unfortunately, the passwords generated by iCloud Keychain aren't exceptionally strong, but they are better than using the same password for every site.

iOS 7 preview: iCloud Keychain aims to make security more convenient

iOS 7 adds an incredibly important set of new features to Apple's Safari web browser - the ability to generate, store, and fill passwords. Sure, there have been third-party apps that have done this, and more, for years. But when the functionality is baked into the OS, even when it's only the basest level of functionality, there's a greater chance that more people will use it. And more people really need to use a password manager, and the unique passwords they enable.
