BUCHAREST, Romania and SANTA CLARA, Calif. – March 9, 2022 – Bitdefender, a global cybersecurity leader, today launched Bitdefender Password Manager, a new consumer solution that simplifies the creation and management of secure passwords for all online accounts across multiple platforms including mobile.
Bitdefender Password Manager generates and saves unique, highly complex passwords for each account enabling secure user management of all login credentials with a single master password. It is backed by end-to-end encryption along with simple set-up, easy installation, and intuitive functionality designed for any level user.
Recent Bitdefender research into online behaviors of more than 10,000 consumers across the globe found that 50% use a single password for all online accounts and nearly one-third (32%) reuse just a few passwords across multiple accounts. Additionally, users now have on average eight accounts with over half using memorization to manage passwords. As a result, many resort to using weak, easy-to-remember passwords and reuse them across several accounts.
“Cybercriminals rely on weak passwords to compromise accounts, steal user identities and profit from selling credentials on the dark web,” said Ciprian Istrate, vice president, Bitdefender Consumer Solutions. “Despite understanding the importance of strong passwords as a security best practice, the ease of memorizing a few passwords and reusing them everywhere outweighs increased security risk for most. We built Bitdefender Password Manager with this in mind, delivering what we believe is one of the best-in-class password protection without sacrificing user convenience.”
