PasswordBox Offers Free Password Manager

App uses a machine learning algorithm that works with more websites over time

SAN FRANCISCO--June 25, 2013--PasswordBox®, the first social password manager that simplifies and protects your digital life, today launched availability of its free password manager that helps people securely store, retrieve and share passwords anytime, anywhere and on any device. PasswordBox also provides a Legacy Vault feature that allows customers to preserve their most important passwords with those they trust should something happen to them. PasswordBox has more than half a million active users and has been downloaded more than two million times.

With the proliferation of attacks against high-profile websites such as LinkedIn, Evernote and Twitter, PasswordBox offers a new way to safely and securely login wherever you are. Deloitte warns that over 90% of user-generated passwords will be vulnerable to hacking this year. With a strong password generator, PasswordBox lets its users create robust passwords that will take centuries for hackers to decrypt, while automatically saving them to their PasswordBox account.

"Online consumers have an average of 25 online accounts and the majority of people reuse the same username and password across multiple websites. Our mandate was to build a solution that not only makes people's lives easier, but also protects against an increasing number of attacks," said Dan Robichaud, CEO of PasswordBox. "Nearly every week popular sites are compromised and hackers steal millions of login credentials and users' identities. To increase security and prevent these attacks, people need to have a different strong password for each website and our solution makes this easy to do. PasswordBox is so simple, my mother uses it--she calls it her web safety deposit box."

Key Features to simplify your digital life

· Time Saving One-Click Login--PasswordBox offers a secure one-click login to your favorite websites on all devices. According to an internal study, two out of 10 sites did not work with alternative password managers. With PasswordBox's advanced machine learning technology, the solution supports more than 96% of all sites worldwide, which is more than any other product on the market.

· Instant StartPage - The first and only stop to access all of your favorite and bookmarked sites with one-click login directly in your browser's new tab. The PasswordBox algorithm tailors your StartPage to your browsing habits, meaning you will always be only one-click away from your favorite sites. Plus, you can customize the page yourself at anytime with 20,000 logos buttons to choose from.

· Legacy Vault--PasswordBox offers users the ability to protect their digital assets with the Legacy Vault. According to a recent McAfee survey, U.S. consumers value their digital assets, on average, at nearly $55,000. That includes photos, projects, hobbies, personal records, career information, entertainment and email. PasswordBox gives the user total control of their digital legacy, and the guarantee that no information is ever transferred to the designated person until a validation of death certificate is complete.

· Encrypted Social Account Sharing--PasswordBox provides easy social sharing to anyone you trust. Millions of people share usernames and passwords everyday via email, but because email isn't encrypted, it's a very unsafe practice. PasswordBox offers an encrypted simple way to share online accounts with friends, family, employees and clients.

· Strong Password Generator - Weak passwords and unsafe password habits like using your dog's name or "12345" are things of the past with the strong password generator. It creates highly secure passwords that take centuries to decrypt, meaning there is no need for users to memorize complicated passwords, as your logins are automatically saved and available on all devices.

· One Tap Login for Websites and Apps – With a single tap, mobile users can login to their favorite websites and mobile apps on their devices. Powered by a unique patent pending technology, PasswordBox's One Tap login into websites is available on iPhone, iPad and Android. One Tap Login into apps is currently available on Android, and will be, coming to other operating systems soon.
