Abstract

Along with the internet and the convenience of completing many tasks online came the necessity of authenticating your identity. Online sites tend to have different requirements on the combination of letters, numbers or symbols your password must contain which commonly results in many different password variations that are hard to remember. A solution to this problem is Password Vault, an iPhone application designed for iOS versions 10 and up that makes it easy for users to store their account’s usernames and passwords in one secure place. Password Vault protects this information by only granting access via a master password which is created upon first use and it’s stored using Apple’s keychain security framework. In addition, users have the option to enable Touch-ID, a fingerprint authentication method available on iPhones 5s and later versions, that allow users to unlock Password Vault with ease. Along with these and other features Password Vault offers users an easy and secure way to keep their password in reach while avoiding the hassle of being locked out of their accounts when they need it most.
