User Story

Format based on Chromium:
i. 15 characters long
ii. At least one of each of:
  "abcdefghijkmnpqrstuvwxyz"; // no 'l' or 'o'                                                                                                                                      
  "ABCDEFGHJKLMNPQRSTUVWXYZ"; // no 'I' or 'O'                                                                                                                                      
  "23456789"; // no '1' or '0'
iii. Then fill the remaining 11 characters with a random selection of the 4 categories above.
iv. Randomly shuffle the order of the characters we’ve chosen

We will evaluating adding symbols later.
