28 November 2019:
VPN service provider NordVPN has launched password manager service – NordPass. The password manager is available in premium and freemium versions.
NordPass uses top-of-the-field XChaCha20 encryption for the password vault and Argon 2 for key derivation to keep the information safe. Users can also choose optional two-factor authentication for extra safety.
NordPass is available in the form of browser extensions for Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Brave, Edge, and Vivaldi. The service is also available in the form of app on iOS and Android.
Laura Tyrell, Press Officer at NordVPN, said, “Some find passwords unimportant; some tend to save their imagination for different tasks. Others have problems with remembering difficult combinations of letters and numbers. We all have been there, and that’s why we came up with NordPass.”
Laura Tyrell, added, “Password information belongs to users only — that’s why our product has zero-knowledge encryption. By the time your data reaches our servers, it’s already been encrypted on your device. That means we have zero knowledge about the items saved in your vault.”
