Kaspersky Password Manager has recently introduced two significant enhancements to bolster digital security. These updates aim to provide users with a secure and convenient way to store and manage their valuable information.


Kaspersky Password Manager now offers a new feature that allows users to securely store unique keys for two-factor authentication (2FA) and generate one-time passwords [1] [2] [3]. This feature provides an added layer of security by enabling users to obtain verification codes for 2FA protected accounts, even if their account password is compromised [2]. The app stores a unique key that generates a one-time login code, which is updated every 30 seconds [2]. Mac users can manually view and enter the codes [2], while Windows users will have access to this feature in fall 2023 [2].

Additionally, the list of supported browsers for the Kaspersky Password Manager browser extension has been expanded to include Opera and Opera GX. This means that users can now use the extension with Opera and Opera GX, as well as Mozilla Firefox [1], Google Chrome [1] [2], Microsoft Edge [1] [2], and Safari [1] [2]. With this extension, users can easily manage passwords [1], bank cards [1], and documents from both desktop and mobile devices [1]. The extension automatically saves logins [2], passwords [1] [2] [3], and other data [2], and can auto-fill credentials for logging in or making online payments [2].


These updates have significant implications for digital security and convenience. By incorporating the ability to securely store unique keys for 2FA and expanding browser support, Kaspersky Password Manager offers enhanced protection for users’ valuable information. This not only mitigates the risk of compromised passwords but also provides a seamless and efficient way to manage online credentials. Looking ahead, these improvements demonstrate Kaspersky’s commitment to continuously enhancing digital security and meeting the evolving needs of its users.
