Kaspersky Password Manager

Kaspersky Labs has released Password Manager - security software designed to help web users stay secure online.

The software, which can be download from Kaspersky's website, stores your usersnames and passwords in a special database that is accessed via a master password.

The software will identify text boxes and password-protected websites and programs along with the relevant usernames and passwords and enter them automatically, once the master password has been confirmed.

The database and the master password are encrypted and Kaspersky says the only way to access the password database is by entering the master password.

Kaspersky Password Manager also features an indicator to show how strong a user's chosen master password is, while to protect against keyloggers, it offers a virtual keyboard to enter the master password with.

"In light of the ever increasing risk of identity theft, we want to provide our users with an increased level of security for their logins and passwords," says Simon Geach, consumer sales director at Kaspersky Lab UK.

Kaspersky's Password Manager is available now, priced at £24.99, although web users can trial the software for free first.
