How Passwarden Works

Passwarden turns creating, managing, sharing, and protecting your passwords, as well as other types of personal information, into a child’s play. Here you’ll learn everything you need to know about our password manager and how it works!

Get Passwarden Password Manager on All Your Devices

Passwarden is a cross-platform solution, meaning that you can use it on a bunch of different devices, including:

  • Windows
  • macOS
  • iOS
  • Android
  • Browsers
  • Web app 

 

Moreover, all your data is synced between your devices, so you can use your profile on any and all platforms.

To use Passwarden on your device:

  1. Download Passwarden 
  2. Create a new KeepSolid ID (or use an existing one) and log in
  3. The first time you sign in, you’ll be prompted to create a Master Password. Without the Master Password, you won’t be able to access your Passwarden account, so make sure to memorize it and save a Recovery key that you will get.
  4. If you haven’t got yourself a paid subscription yet, you’ll be eligible for the free plan with a limited amount of items you can create.

Import Passwords and Data to Passwarden

Most likely, you already have at least some of your passwords and data stored in a browser or another password manager. Manually transferring dozens or even hundreds of passwords to Passwarden would be quite a chore. 

 

Luckily, using data migration you can import all your data to Passwarden in a couple clicks!

  1. Export your data from the service you were using 
  2. Import the file with your data to Passwarden

 

So far, Passwarden supports data migration from the following services

  • Browsers (Chrome, Opera, Edge, and Firefox)
  • Password managers (1Password, LastPass, and Dashlane)

For step-by-step guidelines on data migration from each of these services, please refer to our manuals.

Autofill Passwords from Passwarden

Among the most convenient benefits of storing passwords, logins, and other data in Passwarden is the autofill feature. With it, every time you need to enter data that’s stored in Passwarden (e.g. to sign in to a website, fill account creation fields, etc.), our app will automatically fill the relevant fields for you.

 

To use the autofill feature:

  1. Enable autofill in Passwarden settings
  2. Follow the instructions to configure autofill on your device
  3. Now when you are prompted to enter your password, login, or what have you, Passwarden will suggest relevant autofill options

Share Data Securely via Passwarden

What is the safest way to share your passwords and personal information with your team and family? Definitely not via emails or messenger apps! Instead, use the Passwarden Vault sharing option to send your data in the encrypted form that only the recipient will be able to view. This is the most secure way to share information, since no unauthorized parties - not hackers, not even our own employees - will have access to it.

 

To share your Vault:

1. Choose a Vault that you’d like to share and click the pencil icon in the Vault list

  • Please keep in mind that you can’t share a personal Vault. If you’d like to share an item in your personal Vault, you will first have to select that item, click the green pencil button in the lower right corner, and select the Move to another Vault option

2. Enter an email address of a person you wish to share the Vault with

  • If the person already has a Passwarden account, select a role for them and click Share
  • If they don’t have a Passwarden account yet, they will be sent an invitation to Passwarden. Once they accept it, you will be able to share the Vault with them as described above

Generate Strong Passwords with Passwarden

Strong unique passwords are key (no pun intended) to protecting your accounts. However, it’s not always easy to come up with them, let alone memorize them all. Passwarden can help with both! 

 

To generate a new strong password:

  1. Choose a Vault
  2. Click Add New Item 
  3. Select the Login option
  4. In the Password field, click on the lock icon to generate a new strong password (you change the input parameters if necessary) 

Protect Your Passwords and Data in Passwarden

Via an elaborate mix of security measures, Passwarden bestows the highest level of protection upon your passwords and personal information. The secret ingredient that makes it the most secure password management software is an end-to-end encryption. 

 

Two top-notch encryption protocols - AES256-GCM and EC p-384 - secure every bit of information that you enter to your Passwaren Vaults. With them, your personal info never leaves your device unencrypted, even while stored on our cloud servers. This means that without your Master Password no one, including our own employees, can ever view your stored data.
