'Summertime and the livin' is easy.' Well, that’s not about us, as this summer we are busy as ever.
A few weeks ago NordVPN brought you the news about NordLocker - the new file encryption service. Today we have more exciting news to share. Later this year, we will top up our security product range with NordPass - a password manager built with a focus on simplicity and security by design.
Why a password manager?
Passwords are the front line for your online account security. They should work for us and not the other way around. However, the growing heaps of passwords and the rising number of data breach incidents show that we still struggle.
Your password managing habits
We have also conducted a survey of our VPN users, asking some of you about your password managing habits. This is what we found:
Our own experience
We can definitely relate to your concerns about password managing. When we started working on a password manager, we were looking for a safer and more productive way to deal with passwords within our company. We know from experience how tough it is to trust others when your sensitive data is in question. In the end, this initiative has grown into something pretty exciting, which we decided to expand beyond the bounds of our company and share with you.
Meet NordPass - your gateway to a safer, stress-free digital life
Passwords are like keys to a door. The more online accounts you have, the more stressful it is to find that one right key. NordPass will not only store all of your passwords securely, like in an encrypted safe. It will also help you find the right key when you need it, stress-free.
To access your encrypted vault, you need to remember only one thing - the Master Password. It will unlock all the other digital doors, letting you enjoy a secure and effortless browsing experience.
Zero-knowledge security for your sensitive data
Our team follows the latest security practices and industry standards. We use XChaCha20 to encrypt your vault and Argon2 for key derivation. By the time your data reaches our servers, it's already encrypted on your device, which means we have zero knowledge about the items saved in your vault.
Effortless digital experience
NordPass remembers and autosaves all your passwords, autofills online forms, and allows you to save your private notes. It generates strong passwords on the spot and lets you share them securely.
And these are only the essential features that come with the first version of NordPass. We’re very eager to expand its capabilities in the near future, so stay tuned.
Accessibility of your passwords
Save your passwords once, and they will sync across all devices and platforms you use. NordPass will support major operating systems, offering browser extensions as well as native mobile and desktop apps.
Get rid of password stress. Forever.
