Although VPN market is pretty saturated, NordVPN is extremely popular among internet users for its offerings. While the company has made its name largely due to its VPN solutions, NordVPN has announced that it is currently working on a new password management tool.
Named NordPass, the upcoming software will join NordVPN’s previously released file encryption tool to keep you more secured over internet. According to the company, NordPass will be extremely secure and easy to use. Similar to other password managers, the upcoming tool will require users to remember one master password to access the service and get access to thousands of stored passwords.
