Twik Keeps Your Accounts Secure with Randomly Generated Passwords
If you’re one of those who find it just an impossible task to keep track of several unique passwords with at least eight characters, a combination of both numbers and letters, and at least one capitalized letter, then you definitely know the struggle one goes through when logging into accounts manually. Because yes, having one password for everything isn’t the most secure thing, but at least you don’t have an Email inbox full of password reset messages, right?
XDA Forum Member gustavomondron sympathizes with your predicament, and because of this, he developed an app called Twik to help you out. With Twik Password Manager, you’ll be able to have the same benefits of having different passwords for your accounts, while having to remember only one ‘master’ password. It generates random passwords for your accounts and stores them on your phone. The only way for you to access them is by typing in your ‘master’ password.
Considering the many accounts we have spread across the Internet, Twik has a pleasant, simple, yet very navigable and organized user interface that makes it easy to identify the accounts you have and the password settings associated with each one. Additionally, Twik is compatible with any mobile web browser, so you can easily generate a password by simply sharing the website with Twik. And for those who want to poke around the app’s insides, Twik is open source as well.
If you would like to find out more about Twik, be sure to check out the Twik application thread.
