NordVPN creates new generation password manager dubbed NordPass

NordVPN is creating a new generation password manager. NordPass will have a full range of features to ensure that passwords are as secure as possible. Its easy-to-use interface makes staying secure effortless.

“We can secure your connections with NordVPN and we can secure your files with NordLocker, but you still need a strong password for both,” explained Marty Kamden, CMO at NordVPN. “Passwords are the front line for your online account security. That’s why we’re introducing NordPass. It all started when we were looking for a safer and more productive way to deal with passwords within our company. In the end, this initiative has grown into something pretty exciting, which we decided to expand beyond the bounds of our own business.”

NordPass will remember and autosave all passwords, autofill online forms and allow the saving of private notes. Additionally, the new tool will generate strong passwords on the spot. NordPass will support major operating systems, offering browser extensions as well as native mobile and desktop apps.

ZeroEncryptionNordPass is created using the latest security practices and industry standards. It uses powerful Advanced Encryption Standard (AES-256-GCM) encryption with Argon2 for key derivation, which is virtually unbreakable. Additionally, the new tool will have a zero-knowledge encryption process to ensure ultimate security.

“Zero-knowledge encryption means you own the key to your passwords,” continued Kamden. “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. We couldn’t see your passwords even if we wanted to. 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.”

At the moment, NordPass is going through internal stress-tests. It’s expected that the first beta version will be released this autumn.

NordVPN is a trusted online privacy and security solution used by over 12 million Internet users worldwide. It offers military-grade encryption with advanced privacy solutions and is recognised by the most influential tech sites and IT security specialists.
