How is WordCrypt easier for users to use than all other password managers?
WordCrypt is installed on websites and integrated into registration and login pages. There is nothing for users to install on any device and no passwords to remember, just their own secret phrase and pin number.
How is WordCrypt safer to use than every other password manager?
WordCrypt is unique in that it does not store any passwords or user data whatsoever. A study conducted 5 years ago, and another just a few months ago both concluded the top 5 password managers are “vulnerable” and “flawed” because they store both passwords and user data. Consider also that other password managers require an unsecured password to launch them.
If passwords are never saved, does WordCrypt generate a new password every time I use it?
Of course not. WordCrypt can best be described as a password calculator with no memory rather than a password repository with a skeleton key as other password managers. If you use the same secret phrase and pin number for a given domain, WordCrypt will generate and regenerate that same encrypted password just for you and that website without the need to store it anywhere.
How does WordCrypt eliminate having to constantly reset lost or forgotten passwords?
According to Gartner’s research, up to 40% of service desk calls are just to reset lost and forgotten passwords. With WordCrypt, users don’t have any passwords to remember - only their own secret phrase and pin number they create for themselves.
How does WordCrypt protect your users from identity theft?
In recent surveys, 83% of users use the same password for multiple sites while 59% of people use the same password for every site. These shared passwords lead to “credential stuffing” with over 30 billion login attempts using stolen passwords in 2018 alone! WordCrypt generates a different encrypted password for each domain so users and webmasters are assured of unique, exclusive passwords.
Does WordCrypt employ 'military grade encryption' to generate passwords?
'Military grade encryption' usually refers to Advanced Encryption Standards (AES) used to encrypt data that you later intend to decrypt. Instead, our patented process utilizes a one-way Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA) developed by the NSA so encrypted passwords can never be reverse-engineered to reveal users’ secret phrases or pin numbers - not even by us, the developers of WordCrypt.
So then, is WordCrypt “unhackable”?
Any website can be “hacked” but Trace Security reports that 81% of company data breaches are due to poor password security. In the case of WordCrypt.com, we do not store any user data or user passwords for hackers to steal.
Why should users trust WordCrypt to encrypt their passwords?
Users never register or log into WordCrypt so they remain completely anonymous to us and we never see their identities. In fact, even under subpoena WordCrypt could not possibly reveal users’ identities or their passwords.
If it’s free to install and use, how does WordCrypt make money?
WordCrypt employs passive advertising in the form of a banner ad at the bottom of our SSL popup window. We also offer an Ad-Free version for commercial sites and a Proprietary Licensed version to install locally for networks with sensitive data (please contact us for pricing).
Why do websites have to register and verify ownership?
How do I install WordCrypt on my website?
What password policy configuration options can I set for my site?
Webmasters can set the number of password characters from 8-32, choose alphanumeric only or specify which special characters are allowed, force the first character as uppercase, lowercase or numeric, and include at least one uppercase, lowercase, numeric or symbol characters.
How do I share login credentials for shared accounts?
We suggest you use and share a unique and memorable WordCrypt passphrase and pin number for shared accounts (e.g., LTDaccessBob 1989). Note: all passphrases are case insensitive.
