Password Protector Apps?

Postby Canis lupus » 11 Apr 2017, 12:30

I've noticed Avast! scan check now flags various "unsafe" passwords stored on Internet history (which I now delete automatically).

Last night, Firefox warned me that BCB website was unsafe, due to unencrypted passwords.

Is a encryption app now of paramount importance?

I get pop-up Avast! Ad for cheap (€2 per month) application to protect my PC passwords. Does anyone else have it / recommend it?
or any other free ones that do the job better)?

Much obliged in advance ;)

I'm happy to offer additional protection for your internet banking service. Just send me your current log in details and leave the rest to me.

Some browsers are starting to mark sites as unsafe if the connection isn't encrypted.

The encryption side of things is handled at the server. I will be adding encryption support to the site sometime in the near future.

Can you really trust these things with your passwords? Seems like a go to place for hackers to get all your passwords.
