Tutorial - How to Manage Passwords for Websites?
IntroductionIf you have several login IDs & passwords of other websites, it must be troublesome to remember them all. But using a same ID/password for all your accounts is very dangerous - Advanced Win Utilities Free helps you solve this. The integrated password manager can store multiple logins in a password-protected archive. You can store your ID and password of bank account, social websites, communication tools and many others with manually added descriptions. It also comes with an advanced password generator to create strong yet easy-to-remember password. It does not save the passwords within the program or upload them to a server to make sure that you are the only person that knows your logins.
