Choice of characters depends on the requirements of the site where you will use the generated password. Almost all sites allow Latin alphabetic symbols (lower-case and upper-case) and digits in passwords; some ones also allow punctuation marks and special characters.
Default setting here is to use lower- and upper-case letters and digits and not to use special characters; do not change it if you are not sure. If the all four checkboxes are unset, we apply the default setting.
This setting is for the persons who think a password without it looks ugly. It has meaning only if the above "Lower-case letters" checkbox is set; otherwise it is ignored.
A longer password is obviously stronger, but some sites have their own rules about length of passwords. Empty and non-numeric values are ignored (understood as sixteen), as well as values under eight. Also values over sixteen are considered as sixteen, because our resources are limited.
