Passwords are extremely important in this digital age. Usernames and passwords open up a whole world of possibilities for us – shopping, banking, entertainment, keeping in touch with loved ones, and much more. Almost every app and website out there needs us to create an account to use it. However, remembering these passwords can be a headache, and reusing them is not a good digital practice. That’s where a password manager comes in. And the TotalAV Password Vault is a reliable password manager that can fulfill all your needs. Here’s everything you need to know.

What is TotalAV Password Vault?

TotalAV Password Vault is a Password Manager from the TotalAV Antivirus makers. It is a secure, integrated feature within the TotalAV antivirus suite, available to the subscribers of Total Security. TotalAV antivirus offers three tiers of subscriptions: TotalAV Pro, Internet Security, and Total Security.

Total Security is the highest tier subscription, which costs $49 for the first year (after that, $179/year) and offers the most features, including a password manager. The TotalAV Password Vault allows you to store and manage all your login credentials and passwords, credit cards, and addresses in a single, encrypted place secured by a master password.

The Password Manager, interchangeably called Password Vault and Total Password in the Total AV ecosystem, is available for all your devices – Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android. It can also be installed as a browser extension on Chrome, Edge, and Opera. This means that you can use a single password manager across your devices to store your passwords.

Features of TotalAV Password Vault

  • With the Total Passwords extension installed on your browser or app installed on your phone, the password manager automatically fills in your login info on websites and apps.
