Tick the Generate New Passwords box and enter a numerical value into "SEED" to generate new passwords based off the seeding value. Please input a maximum of 8 digits into the "SEED" box.

  • All the same: All UniKeys created by the UniKey burner under the current session will have the same SID.

  • Time/Date: The new UniKey SID will be based off the time and date of creation
