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

    Passwords application 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

    Freedcamp’s Passwords app is a Project Group Application. We will explain this concept in the below section. 

    This application is a free add-on which is available in our Add-ons.

    How to access the Password Manager

    You can access Passwords directly from Projects Board or from a project picker:

    - Change groups order by dragging them (4).

    - Use the edit and delete icons (5) and (6) respectively to edit and delete your Password group.

    NOTE:

    • We give you an additional warning when you are about to delete a password group containing passwords since all passwords in it will be also deleted.

    Managing passwords

    To add a new entry, use the button 'Add new' (1) in Passwords. If you want to change the Password Group, you can select a different password group (2). You can also optionally use the master password security level (3) - check Host-Proof Hosting section on this page.
