Panda Dome Passwords 2020 Review
Reviews score: Very Good
Panda Dome Passwords is a very good password manager, allowing you to easily generate and store highly secure passwords. On top of that, it comes with a few cool bonus features.

Security & Performance
If you’re like most people, you use the same password for all your websites and accounts. And if you’re like most people, you’ve already been hacked.
I’m not kidding. In 2013, 153 million user records were stolen from Adobe. A year later in 2014, another 145 million user accounts were exposed at Ebay. And the list goes on.
If you were among the unlucky that were hacked, and you’ve used the same email-password-combination for all your accounts, hackers can now access everything. That is as scary as it sounds. And most people are completely unaware of it.
Luckily, Panda Dome Passwords can help. By using their service, you can create complicated and unique passwords for all your websites and accounts, and completely forget about them afterwards.
In fact, Panda will automatically fill them in for you whenever you visit your favourite websites. That’s right. It’s that easy.
How does it work? It’s quite simple actually. Read on.
When you purchase Panda Dome Passwords, you’ll receive an activation key via email, which you’ll use to activate your account at Panda. From the account, you’ll be prompted to download and install the browser extension in the Chrome web store. Or you download the app for Android or iOS.
Now you’re all set to create some seriously secure passwords. Go ahead and visit your favourite website, for instance Facebook, and update your password. Don’t worry, you won’t need to think of one yourself.
Panda’s password generator can create random and highly secure passwords for you. These can consist of any combination of numbers, symbols, lower and uppercase letters, ranging from 4 to 32 characters.
For instance, I just created this one with their tool:
Using Panda Dome Passwords, from now on, all your passwords will look like this. And let’s be honest, doesn’t that look a bit safer then qwerty123?
Of course, no one can remember complex passwords. And luckily, you won’t have to. Panda’s password manager will store each email and password combination in their vault, and sync them across all your devices and browser extensions.
As a cherry on top, next time you’ll visit your website of choice, Panda will fill in the user ID and password for you. Safe, secure and easy.
Maximum security for these passwords is essential. Luckily you’re in the right hands. Panda is a Spanish cybersecurity company, founded in 1990. They have been creating some of the best antivirus software for many years.
Using their next-gen antivirus they implement “behavioral intelligence” to detect both known and unknown malware. Allowing malware attacks to be detected and prevented, before they can cause any harm.
And they bring all this know-how to keeping your passwords safe as well.
Panda’s password manager is both beautiful to look at and easy to use. In their extension for Chrome you can find the 5 tabs outlined below:
The first tab is “accounts”. Here, all your email and password combinations are stored alphabetically. You can scroll through them or use the search function to find the website you want to visit, such as Gmail or Facebook, and simply click it. Panda will take you to the website and log you in.
The second tab is “identities”. Here you can store your personal information, such as your name, address and phone number. Next time you’ll need to fill out this information at an e-commerce store, Panda can do that for you.
You are able to add multiple identities if you like. This is practical if you have different work and private addresses and/or phone-numbers.
The third tab is the “password generator’. Here you can create random passwords spanning 4 to 32 characters. You can use lowercase, uppercase, numbers and/or symbols.
Some websites force you to use a specific password structure, such as a combination of letters and numbers, but no symbols. Panda allows you to adjust to this by simply unchecking the symbols option. It’s easy and intuitive.
The fourth tab is called “secure me”. With one click, you can “secure” any browser on any device you have been active on. That means deleting cookies, logging you out from all websites, and if you like, even clearing the entire browsing history and closing all tabs. All with the click of a button.
The fifth and final tab is the “security report”. Here Panda checks the quality of your master password, whether you are using any weak or duplicate passwords across your accounts, and whether any of your accounts have been hacked. It’s a really handy check-up.
