The issue of generation of random numbers is quite common, but sometimes, we have applications that require us to better that and provide some functionality of generating a random string of digits and alphabets for applications such as passwords. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this can be performed.
Method #1 : Using
This function of random module can help us achieve this task, and provides a one liner alternative to a whole loop that might be required for this particular task. Works with Python > v3.6 .
The generated random string : 0D5YE91
Method #2 : Using
For Cryptographically more secure random numbers, this function of secret module can be used as it’s internal algorithm is framed in a way to generate less predictable random numbers. Works with Python > v3.6 .
The generated random string : T7HPKVR
