When you need a Duress mode to protect your data

Keep your data private while crossing borders


The most common situation when the Duress mode can help you a lot is related to the airports and border crossing posts. Sometimes border officials can require access to your data and devices for no apparent reason. They also can request you unlock your applications, social accounts, or even password manager.

Thanks to the Duress mode feature, you can hide all your valuable data beforehand and be ready for such situations.

Protect your info if someone suspicious is nearby


Going to open your password manager and notice someone watching you or crowding over you too closely? Well, it could be a coincidence. But you can’t be too careful. If you extremely need some passwords that are also stored in the Duress mode, it’s better to unlock Passwarden with your Duress password.
