Cyclonis Password Manager use encryption

Of course, a lot has changed in the last two millennia, and it’s not a good idea to protect valuable information with such an old technique these days. Cyclonis Password Manager uses something much more modern: AES-256. AES stands for Advanced Encryption Standard and was developed in 2001 by the American Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). 256 is the length (measured in bits) of the key used to encrypt and decrypt information. 256 bit is the optimal key length as it makes encryption fast and secure.

This particular form of AES is reliable enough to be used by governments, militaries, and financial institutions around the world, and if it’s good enough to protect their secrets, it should be good enough for you too. The most important key for data encryption and decryption comes from the assigned master password. Because nobody else should have access to your data, your Master Password is never stored or transmitted.

Only you should know and remember. Since it is designed to protect all information, the master password must be complex.At the same time, it should not be forgotten, since there is no way to reset or restore it. If you are finding it impossible to create a strong and easy-to-remember master password, read our tips on how to do this: -master password /

In case someone manages to guess your Master Password, we implemented a two-factor authentication system to help you stay in control of your data. Enabled by default, it requires an additional verification code sent to you via email when you or someone else attempts to access your Cyclonis Password Manager account from an unauthorized device.
