Moreover, you can also generate highly secure passwords to access all your most used websites. In other words, Password Manager makes you forget multiple usernames as well as the password by saving them in a document (which is obviously not secure as anyone can access that document) or writing them down a paper.

Password Manager can run on all the devices including mobile phones, desktops, and laptops. To keep your passwords and other credentials protected from the hackers, the Password Manager encrypts all your personal data that cannot be accessed by an unauthentic user as it requires a decryption key (like the one you need during Webroot install). This key is usually stored on your local computer and is generated with your master password and email address.
