New password management app lets you doodle your way to security
forghetti™, a new password management app, launched last week with the aim of simplifying the future of cybersecurity and our personal online experience.
Available on all devices (iOS, Android, Mac and PC), the app allows you to create a unique doodle to give you access to all of your online accounts.
Core to the security of forghetti™, unlike traditional password management apps, forghetti™ doesn’t keep a database of your passwords anywhere. Your passwords can only be generated by your unique doodle, which only you know. Combined with unique details about your account, the forghetti™ algorithm generates unique passwords for each of your online accounts. You could say, an empty database is un-hackable.
Discussing how and why forghetti™ came about, Mike Crompton, Founder and CEO, commented, “As so many of us do, my family had passwords written down all over the place; drawers full of tatty notes, post-its on my computer screen and notebooks full of codes and numbers. Yet still, most of the time we couldn’t find the passwords we needed, leading to regular frustration.
Realising I can’t be the only one living like this, I decided to do something about it. The aim of forghetti™ is to take away the stresses of living in an ever-expanding, online world and free up your memory for making new memories.
Of course, forghetti™ is about more than just simplifying life. Online security was top of the agenda with hacking and fraud an increasing issue. That’s why forghetti™ doesn’t store any of your passwords or PINs, that way, you might say there’s nothing to hack!”
forghetti™ handles more than just passwords, it allows you to create mind-bogglingly complex passwords, generate or protect PIN numbers and ‘memorable words/answers’ too – the ideal solution for important accounts such as online banking.
Furthermore, the app allows you to safely share passwords and control who has access to them and when access is given. You can even limit the number of times the login is used and revoke access at any time for additional peace of mind.
After assessing the security of the app, Cybersecurity Southampton stated, “Password managers are growing to be a crucial tool for the security of internet users. forghetti™ works with users’ doodles to generate and manage strong passwords on the fly, without storing them. This innovation promises to step up the fight against bulk identity theft and enhance online user security.”
The standard version of forghetti™ is free to download, find out more on their website.
