Why could NordPass be a better option for managing your passwords and personal information?

While built-in options like the native iOS Passwords app provide basic functionalities, NordPass takes password and personal information management to a markedly higher level.

One of NordPass's standout features is its seamless synchronization, allowing users to access their passwords and personal information across multiple devices and platforms—be it Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, or iOS. This cross-compatibility is a significant advantage for users who operate within diverse technological ecosystems​.

NordPass also goes beyond simple password management and offers a comprehensive suite of advanced tools designed to help individuals and businesses alike improve their digital security.

The Data Breach Scanner provides a way to check whether your sensitive data such as emails, passwords, or personal information, has been compromised in a breach. You can also set Breach Monitoring and receive real-time alerts in case your data appears in the breach.

Complementing the Data Breach Scanner, the Password Health feature can help you identify weak, old, and reused passwords, improving your passwords and overall security posture.

In addition, NordPass includes an Email Masking feature—a tool that generates fake, disposable email addresses that can be leveraged for online signups, making sure your real email remains a secret. This limits spam, and minimizes the risks of phishing.

In terms of support, NordPass offers 24/7 customer service, ensuring that help is available whenever it is needed. If you are already using NordPass, here’s a quick guide on enabling the NordPass autofill on iOS.
