Rearrange generated passwords so they're easier to type on a mobile device

Project description

This repository currently contains Python code for permuting randomly-generated passwords for easier entry on mobile devices.

The permutation categorizes the characters of a password into four sets: uppercase (U), lowercase (L), numbers (N), and symbols (S). The rearranged password is then created by concatenating each set in the order U + L + N + S. By grouping character classes (i.e., uppercase, lowercase, numbers, symbols) together in this way, it minimizes the total number of keystrokes required for entry on mobile devices.
