Gets or sets a value indicating whether or not to automatically generate a password for the new user account.

Property Value

true to automatically generate a password for the new user account; otherwise, false. The default value is false.

This property cannot be set by themes or style sheet themes. For more information, see ThemeableAttribute and ASP.NET Themes and Skins.



The AutoGeneratePassword property makes it possible to create user accounts without entering a password for them. For example, this functionality is useful when an administrator creates a new user's account and then gives a password to the user.


You cannot create users using the CreateUserWizard if AutoGeneratePassword is set to true and the PasswordStrengthRegularExpression property is set in the application's Web.config. An error message indicating an invalid password will result.
