Passwords, passwords, passwords. Oh, for a world where we could access our data without such nonsensical gibberish. Well, until then, we need a password manager app, one that includes powerful security features and then some for our Android device. I’m pretty sure you already have a few names at the top of your head, but we’re going to be talking about an app that was recently named the best app at CES 2014 in Vegas. Its called PasswordBox.
Password Manager App PasswordBox Reviewed
If you have too many passwords that its simply become futile to remember them all, then a password manager sure comes in handy. PasswordBox keeps all your online passwords in one convenient location and what’s more, you can access it from just about any device.
In order to access your PasswordBox account, you need to remember just one password called the master key. The passwords that you store are AES 256-bit encrypted on your device before being sent over to PasswordBox. So while hackers may get access to your information, they will never be able to do anything with it as no one has the decryption key to read them. Feeling better already? Good. There is a tiny drawback to this method though. You should never forget your master key. Ever.
You can create your PasswordBox account by signing in via your Gmail account within the app, or you can use another email address to create one. The next step is to create your master password. Then simply activate the 1-Tap login by following the steps onscreen. You don’t have to set up your account passwords right away. The next time you login to a website, it will automatically ask you to save your settings.
You obviously have to install browser add-ons if you want the same privileges on your desktop or laptop. Click here to download the toolbar of your choice for Chrome, Firefox, and IE.
With PasswordBox you can also share your passwords in a secure manner with certain people, who could be your close family, coworkers, or others. The Legacy feature is obviously handy as it allows you to nominate another person to inherit your accounts should anything happen to you. The person who is nominated will need to have a PasswordBox account along with proof (such as death certificates) to access your account.
PasswordBox also comes with a password generator saving you the trouble of cooking up a strong password every time you want to open a new account. With this tool you can even create encrypted notes to store sensitive personal data such as passports, credit card info, and such in your digital wallet.
If you want additional security, you can go in for an optional pin code lock, but with military grade security available, you may not always need this one. PasswordBox supports 90% of the popular apps in the Play Store so logging in to your mobile apps from your Android phone is effortless. No more headaches of remembering umpteen number of passwords and no longer having to type them out either.
You can store up to 25 passwords in your free PasswordBox account, but if its unlimited password storage you want, you can unlock the PasswordBox Unlimited option which is available via in-app-purchases for $11.99 a year which will be renewed automatically.
