Kaspersky Password Manager is certainly the right pick to create strong passwords and manage them efficiently.
The average Internet surfer tends to encounter issues with passwords once in a while as most people typically have lots of personal online accounts and it may therefore ‘take a scientist’ to keep this whole bulk of authentication data in mind. Writing login credentials down is not a very good idea either because then you can’t be sure they are ultimately safe and don’t get retrieved by someone having wicked intensions. Also, the issue of having strong passwords is now as relevant as probably never before. So how do you make sure your accounts and your online identity don’t get compromised this way?
There is a utility that does the trick. It’s called Kaspersky Password Manager. This is a computer program that helps users generate secure passwords and makes the process of entering them into web pages completely automated.
The exceptional convenience combined with unbeatable reliability and ultimately secure digital environment created – make Kaspersky Password Manager an irreplaceable assistant for both home and business users. At least, those who tried using this tool can now hardly imagine their cyber routine without it and basically never switch to other similar products or discontinue the use of this one. This review will give you a complete idea why this software is so much favored by users worldwide.
We’ve already kind of got used to the choice between licensed copy and a 30-day free trial with Kaspersky products, their Password Manager being no exception to this pretty pleasurable pattern. If it’s the commercial version that you choose, you’ll be flattered by the little asterisk note on the registration screen, saying ‘license does not expire’. That means you just select the number of PCs to protect, purchase the tool and use it for as long as you like – at least, that’s what it sounds like.
Installing this password manager is a piece of cake, really. It’s small in size, so the only thing the download speed depends on is your Internet connection quality. When going through the setup, note that the tool does not work in Safe Run mode of Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 and 2011.
The first thing to do after installation is to define a strong master password which is to become the key to the rest of sensitive information you are about to store with the aid of the software. Without the master password, no one can possibly access the personal data protected by this product, though there is one little aspect here. Alternatively, the password database can be unlocked using a pre-specified USB or Bluetooth device connected to the machine. The default software configuration is set to lock the database after 10 minutes of idleness; by the way, you can define your own time-out using the program’s settings. One great thing to outline right away is the virtual keyboard which you can use for entering your confidential details, thus eliminating the risk of getting your keystrokes recorded by spyware or keyloggers.
The user interface might at first sight appear too plain to be true, yet the product’s functionality is entirely integrated into these looks, so you get both simplicity and full usability blended. Also, there’s no need to worry about any kind of overly system resources consumption – this won’t happen. Kaspersky Password Manager is tuned to accommodate a perfect balance of performance and efficiency.
Kaspersky Password Manager’s motto is ‘Protect Your Digital Identity’, and that is the phrase that precisely outlines its basic objectives. This leitmotif is the key to defining this application’s functionalities and features which we are going to dwell on in this section:
The product being tested has shown itself to advantage in the context of reliability in performing the tasks it’s intended to cover. To start with, the virtual keyboard allows avoiding any unwanted consequences of getting your keystrokes logged by ‘third parties’. The master password principle largely contributes to safety of your private data and sensitive credentials. All of the personal information is stored in a secure encrypted database on your PC, so its intactness is out of the question. Along with actually managing your passwords, Kaspersky Password Manager helps you create new ones complying with the targeted meter to make sure those are strong and nearly impossible to guess, even if there’s a so-called dictionary attack on you which is a pretty sophisticated technique employed by criminals to defeat the cipher or authentication mechanism. So, as far as effectiveness is concerned, this software won’t let you down.
The exceptional and clearly discernible focus on customer service has been like a business card of Kaspersky Lab for years. As long as you are using one of their products, this spectrum of client support services is entirely at your disposal, so you become a part of sort of a privileged community.

Kaspersky Lab’s official pages can as well be found on social networks and YouTube, so you can easily stay on top of the security news. Regarding the self-help stuff, the FAQs and extensive knowledgebase are available directly from the user interface. One last thing to point out is the company features global support, so no matter if you are from America, Europe, Asia, Africa or other part of the world – you’ll get assistance in your language within a short time frame.
