Batch file password login - different everyday

#1 Post by Ollyc » 10 Nov 2018 10:52

Hello ,

Im seeing if its possible to have a cmd batch file where the password is different everyday. I have to run another batch file which will tell me the password to enter on my other batch file.

Im guessing it would have to work on date order so each date has its own password.

Can anyone give any ideas on how to code this?

1. Write a script that changes a password stored in a file every time you run it. I'm thinking something that simulates diceware, personally.
2. Create a scheduled task that runs that script once per day.

@echo off
set /P c=%date% if /I "%c%" EQU "10/11/2018" goto :10/11/2018
:choice
if /I "%c%" EQU "11/11/2018" goto :11/11/2018(different password)
if /I "%c%" EQU "10/11/2018" goto :10/11/2018( different password)


iv come up with an idea above .
when cmd prompt displays the date is it possible that it will answer the choice ?
it works when i type it in but i want it when it displays the date its then answered it moves to the right section .
