The Antivirus Secures Your Passwords Too

People spend endless hours in front of their PCs. Most have significantly moved their social, financial and business interactions to the online environment. No wonder. While checking e-mails, people can also chat with friends on Skype, browse their Facebook feeds and wait for an online transaction to finalize.

Online shopping or paying bills online, e-banking, connecting to social networking accounts, logging into instant messaging applications and accessing our accounts on favorite websites all need usernames and passwords – preferably complex ones to help us block unauthorized logins. This implies users remember all these passwords and usernames- no easy task!

To face this challenge, some people turn to paper and pen, an Excel or a Notepad file to list and save together all passwords and usernames to their numerous accounts. This practice is extremely dangerous. Anyone can peak at the piece of paper or document, lose it,  misplace it, destroy it, delete it by mistake, have it stolen, or simply not have it handy when they need it the most.

To save people from all this hassle, Bitdefender created Wallet – a utility integrated into the New Bitdefender. With Wallet, people don’t need to remember all those passwords anymore.

Wallet replaces all those hard-to-memorize credentials with a single strong password that seals all the other ones in a unique safe place. Wallet helps users keep track of all their important data and can even manage it for them via the auto fill feature that automatically logs users into their accounts.

Bitdefender Wallet offers users a fast, easy and secure online experience. It’s easy to access e-banking and social networking accounts, while shuffling through the websites you are a member of when a secure password management tool remembers login credentials for you, and even auto fills them for you if you so desire.

All your credentials are safely stored and always handy. And together with Bitdefender Safepay, Wallet is the perfect tool for a private and secure online banking and shopping experience.
