    Description

    Tired of forgetting your login information or submitting a password reset form? Still sharing passwords with your team via email and Skype hoping it will not be compromised? Remembering login credentials is a thing of the past. Manage all your account passwords from a secure and centralized location.

    Passwords allows you to save an unlimited number of security credentials for your most important applications and services.

    Advanced privacy settings allow you to keep this information strictly to yourself or enable sharing for users within your project group.

    Passwords is completely secure with 256-bit SSL encryption. Never lose track of another account, and never have your credentials compromised.

    Passwords provides an additional and enhanced level of security with an optional master password. Passwords are encrypted in your browser with the master password only you know. We never have your unencrypted data if you use the master password. Even if our servers were hacked your passwords would be safe.

    Features include:

    • Customized password sharing options - share passwords via individual level!
    • Store username, passwords, and login links.
    • Standard protection - passwords encrypted and decrypted on our secure servers and passed to your browser via secure https connection
    • Advanced optional and free protection with Host-Proof Hosting

    Project Group applications explained

    Password Manager is a project group application but what are Project Groups?

    1. Project Groups allow to group related projects together.

    2. On your Manage Projects page you can create Project Group Administrators - your team members who you trust to create new projects and manage users in your project group(s) - so you do not need to do it all yourself.

    3. Install group applications.

    If you have 3 projects in one project group and you add Password Manager you can go to Manage Projects page and allow some or all users in these 3 projects to access Password manager application. 

    You can individually select who can access this app. Inside Password Manager (when you create a new password) select from a list of these users to allow per password access.

    How to install Password Manager to a new or existing project group
