AppDate: You shall not pass with NordPass

In this AppDate instalment, SEAN BACHER highlights NordPass, DHL Express Live Chat, ESET joining up as a Google App Defense Alliance partner, Shyft now with iiDENTIFii, and Ayoba hitting 1 million users per month.


NordVPN has launched NordPass, a password manager built with a focus on simplicity and security.

When it comes to cybersecurity, people have plenty of bad habits. This includes passwords: from keeping login information in sticky notes or notepads to using “password” or “123456.” And worst of them all, reusing the same one for different accounts.

Like a master key, NordPass fits just about everyone’s needs. Not only does it help to generate new complex passwords, but also lets one share them securely with friends or co-workers. Most importantly, this password manager remembers it all: from complex logins to private notes and credit cards. And you can access it all with a single master password.

To keep the information secure, NordPass uses XChaCha20 encryption for the password vault and Argon 2 for key derivation. Users can also choose optional two-factor authentication for extra safety. The new tool will have a zero-knowledge architecture to ensure full security.

A NordVPN spokesperson says that password information belongs to users only, so NordPass product has zero-knowledge encryption.

“By the time the data reaches our servers, it’s already been encrypted on your device. That means we have zero knowledge about the items saved in your vault.”

Powered by cybersecurity experts, NordPass is easy to use. One can download user-friendly browser extensions for Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Brave, Edge, and Vivaldi. And, of course, apps for iOS and Android.
