It is becoming increasingly difficult to keep r valuable data under control. As data users continue to acquire more credentials from various entertainment and social media accounts and access to digital copies of documents that hold private information, they hope to keep this information protected.
Kaspersky Lab has for this reason, released a new version of its free premium solution that simplifies the process of organising valuable private data like passwords, documents and photographs.
Dubbed; Kaspersky Password Manager, it allows users to view and store PDF documents and assign uploaded files to categories making finding documents faster and more convenient. It adds the ability to check if a password has been compromised in leaked public databases and further supports multiplatform usage scenarios, so that one account can manage the secure vault across all user devices.
The Password Manager allows users to manage valuable digital data both securely and effectively, anywhere and from any device. Users can now upload driver’s licenses, passports/IDs, bank cards, insurance files and other types of valuable documents as JPG, other image formats, or multipage PDF. Users can then assign the right category to the uploaded file for easy access and quick search.
Marina Titova, Head of Consumer Product Marketing at Kaspersky Lab, says: “It is well known that the number of documents and passwords which need to be accessed is rising every day. People now need a solution that will keep all of these documents secure and in one place. The new version of Kaspersky Password Manager is a perfect tool for keeping personal data safe and sound.”
Large scale private account information leaks have become a reality. From the 2013, Yahoo breach to the recent Collection #1 publicationthat contained more than a billion unique email and password combinations. All were made available on popular hacker forums. Traditional techniques for creating strong passwords (password length, presence of special symbols, etc.) are not enough anymore.
Users have to pay more attention than ever before and adopt proactive security measures to keep their data safe. Users need to stay alert about the security of their accounts. The new version of Kaspersky Password Manager will even warn a user if the password they have chosen has appeared in databases with compromised accounts.
Kaspersky Password Manager is a secure, multiplatform advanced manager available for Microsoft Windows, macOS, Android, iOS and Web Version. The tool secures passwords, identifies weak ones and generates strong replacements with Password Generator, securely auto-filling login credentials and storing user’s personal data in an encrypted private vault. Once everything is synced, the data is always to hand and ready to use.
The Password Manager has Free and Premium versions differing on the number of records kept in the vault. The Free version is limited to 15 entries.
