Simple and secure password management.
Strong and varied passwords are key to effective cyber-security. However, few people can remember all the passwords needed for logging into their various devices, online accounts, cloud services and so forth.
That’s where password managers come in. A password manager is an encrypted digital storage vault that stores secure password information that you use to log into apps and accounts online. In addition to keeping your credentials safe, password managers have a password generator which helps to create strong, unique passwords for each of your online accounts.
A good password manager will keep everything on file and can handle all your login credentials for any online account. They are also useful when it comes to auto-filling forms and syncing your data across Windows PCs, Macs, iPhones, Android Phones and so forth.
There are various online password managers available, but NordPass is one of the best. NordPass includes several useful features including a data breach scanner, password health report, web vault and a password inheritance option.
If you want to try NordPass, you can sign up for the free version, however this doesn’t allow you to access your passwords on multiple devices simultaneously and you can’t use it to share items from your online vault. However, the free version offers unlimited passwords, which is useful.
NordPass makes it easy to save passwords and if you create a new online account, you can simply click ‘save’ to remember them for later use. There is also a Secure Notes section in your NordPass vault where you can store things such as Wi-Fi passwords, alarm codes and other sensitive information.
NordPass uses a complex encryption algorithm to ensure that your data is held securely. The only password you need to remember is the one for your NordPass account. You can also use your face and/or your fingerprint to log in to your account. If you want to upgrade to NordPass premium, it costs from £4.99 per month and various enterprise subscription packages are available for businesses.
