How to generate random password in Laravel

Tutorial last revisioned on August 11, 2022 with Laravel 9
This is a really really short one. I just needed to generate a random password for a user and noticed that Google doesn't really give a one-line answer, which is really simple. Firstly, how to generate random string - Laravel has a helper called str_random($length). In terms of saving hashed password to database, we use Hash::make($password). So the end result for generating 8-symbol length password looks as simple as this:
$hashed_random_password = Hash::make(str_random(8));
Of course, don't forget:
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Hash;
Generated password can look like:
JnR390XB
2I2so1Wr
oVNBAic9
And hash is something like:
$2y$10$E1.y.jjmr7ecmMAiwFFQMO6KXn0scLB2hvVBbx8cny.lREZ6xdDMW
$2y$10$pVOI0me9sLPRbyQnxNQrDurSoJScsE6nvu6VVOsMDF8qusH7HUlo2
$2y$10$xVPUPgm1vpUTpZ8jAJE/Xeh7j8G8EFnlQYp27Zjy8qnabqessSc2i
That's it for now, hope it's a useful short tip.
