Keep your data secure with Passwarden

What types of documents you can store

Our secure document storage lets you save your most important documents and access these documents whenever you need them.

 

You can store:

  • ID Card
  • Passport
  • Driver’s License
  • Social Security Number
  • Other documents using Secure Notes

How secure your documents are

To provide you with the highest security level possible, we implement the military-grade AES-256 encryption and bulletproof ЕС р-384 protocol. As well, our team implements client-side encryption.

It means all your information is scrambled on your device and becomes unreadable to any unauthorized parties who manage to intercept your internet traffic when sharing or syncing data. Thus, you won’t worry about your sensitive information integrity.

Apart from using state-of-art algorithms and top-notch encryption protocols, we envisaged some indirect measures to protect your data before you save it to Passwarden.

Our secure documents storage doesn’t allow you to upload files or attach a scan or photo of your document. We are worried you may forget to delete the source documents after uploading them to the encrypted storage. The impossibility of uploading files to the Passwarden storage protects your data from any unauthorized access if someone gets lucky to unlock your device and you haven't deleted original documents.

Passwarden features for additional protection

Two-factor authentication

To safeguard your Passwarden profile, we implement the additional authentication step that ensures no one, except you, can get access to your profile and sensitive data. The main idea of 2FA is to employ two different authentication types: something you know (your KeepSolid ID and Master password) and something you have (one-time code sent to your email address).

More about two-factor authentication, you can read in the article How 2FA helps you to protect your Passwarden account.

Duress mode

This feature is designed for situations where you’re forced to unlock your Passwarden profile under duress. To keep your most sensitive data safe, enter the Duress password instead of your Master one, and Passwarden hides both your private and shared Vaults except those you’ve previously made to be visible. 

To get more information about this security feature, check out the page How to hide your data using the Duress mode.

How to save your documents to Passwarden storage

It’s a piece of cake! To save your documents to the Passwarden storage, follow a few simple steps:

  1. Unlock your Passwarden profile.
  2. Click the Add New Item button.
  3. Select the appropriate data type.
  4. Choose a Vault you want to store this item in.
  5. Fill in all necessary details and click Save.

That’s it! Now you can be sure your documents are safe and within your arm’s reach.

How to share sensitive documents with others

There could be such situations when you need to share your documents. For example, if you are going abroad with your friend, family, or colleagues and one of you buys tickets for all others, you need to share your passport number and full name.

Sending this information via messengers or email is quite dangerous and could have grave consequences if any third parties intercept your traffic. To prevent such cases, we highly recommend you to use an encrypted password manager or secure document storage with a reliable data sharing feature.

 

To securely share your documents with Passwarden, implement the following steps:

  1. Navigate to your Passwarden storage.
  2. Create a Vault you are going to share.
  3. Add the appropriate items to this Vault.
  4. Send invite and choose access rights.
