Advanced Password Manager Editor’s Review
Keep your PII (personally identifying information) safe and private with this important Windows utility.
In an age where nearly EVERYONE is getting hacked, it’s important to keep all of your sensitive information, private. This is increasingly difficult, as most nearly every privacy utility out on the market concentrates on nearly the same things – web browsing history, passwords, advertisement blocking and cookie management. However, nearly none of them cover PII or personally identifying information. That is, until Advanced Password Manager. It’s a must have utility for your Windows PC.
There’s a reason why you have data on your PC. You need it for work, shop, surf, etc. However, a lot – or most of it – is at risk for loss. Advanced Password Manager identifies, saves and deletes traces of your identity from your computer system after saving them to an encrypted vault secured by one master password. After your information is saved, Advanced Password Manager enables you to fill web forms, including personal and financial information, automatically using your saved credentials.
Advanced Password Manager securely locks your personal and financial information with a master key. You generally have to remember multiple passwords for your accounts and unfortunately, using the same password for all your accounts is unsecure and unsafe. If someone obtains that one password, all your accounts will likely be hacked without your notice. The best way to remain safe, is to have a different, secure password for each online resource you use.
The application allows you to do all of the following:
- Protect all your passwords,
- Auto-fill login credentials using Advanced Password Manager’s add-on,
- Securely save your online accounts,
- Sync passwords, credit card details and more, over browsers and
- Generate strong passwords.
Advanced Password Manager lets you remember only one password to unlock all your accounts.
Advanced Password Manager can scan your PC for PII and then can clean it in three (3) steps
- Scan: Scan your PC for existing identity traces that can be stolen from your PC.
- Vault: Save these scanned traces to your vault and lock it using your master key.
- Clean: Remove scanned identity traces from your PC to stay safe & secure.
App Pro’s: Scans for PII, finds things you didn’t think were there, comprehensive security
App Con’s: Odd help-related fly out won’t stay put
Conclusion: Advanced Password Manager is a fine addition to any PC owner’s utility box. This app should be part of everyone’s security arsenal, along with a top rated antivirus app and a good ad blocker. While the app pulls all of your PII off your machine, it secures all of your data on its own secure web servers. Your best bet here is to insure that your master password contains not only upper and lower case letters, but numbers and special characters as well.
The app stays resident on your PC and installs plug-ins to the most popular browsers – IE, Chrome and Firefox – so that it can prefill credential fields and manage other secure data while you surf the internet.
I like the app a great deal, if only because it scans for and removes data that no other privacy app that I’ve ever come across does. Aside from an odd help-related fly out that won’t stop flying out no matter how many times you put it away, this app is a great addition to your security toolbox.
