password manager

(redirected from Password management)

password manager

Software installed in the user's computer or mobile device or in a physical unit that connects to a USB port. Password managers are built into Web browsers and are also available as a Web-based service, which allows for password retrieval from any computer, smartphone or tablet. The major advantage of password managers is that they allow storage of passwords far more complex than users typically make up, and a different one can be created either by the user or generated by the software for each website. Without a password manager, even if users create a strong password with letters, digits and special characters, they too often use the same one for multiple sites. If compromised, everything is exposed. See password.
