PasswordWrench Mobile 2FA App Live in Android Store

Our 2FA mobile app is now live! PasswordWrench listened to our customers who have been requesting a smartphone Two-Factor Authorization mobile application. For the past several months we have been busy building & testing one of the most secure 2FA application in the industry. We just launched the Android version, and shortly we will release the iOS version as well.

The PasswordWrench 2FA mobile app resolves many existing security issues in the 2FA/MFA market. Working hard to address these issues while making an app that’s user friendly and secure were our top priorities. 

First, this 2FA mobile app is easy to use, a factor that is important to us as well as to our customers. The time it takes to set-up the app is down to one click. Our 2FA technologies are built around a downloadable/printable Password Card that works similar to a bingo game, and with this new mobile app, you don’t even need to download the Password Card anymore. A unique Password Card is generated for every login. Simply find and plug-in the coordinates – anyone can do it. 

Next, we bring more security than existing TOTP applications, as we resolve the vulnerability that TOTP apps have during the set-up process. Hackers can easily grab screenshots of the keys or the QR Code shown on the screen when you are using a TOTP app, and if they do, all PINs generated from that app are easily replicable on the hacker’s side. With the ubiquitous use of cameras everywhere, this problem is becoming a more prevalent concern in the cyber security community. We have eliminated this threat. 

Our solution also checks for potential phishing and middle-man attacks during the second-step login validation, something that no TOTP app does. We synch our validation with the server, validating our 2FA PIN using our provided API, which is of course seamless to the user. 

And finally, our app resolves issues related to the clock from the smartphone that requires proper synchronization properly from all TOTP apps. Sometimes, when generating a PIN from a TOTP app, the PIN will fail, even when valid, due to the clock on the device be off by few seconds. Our app fixes this issue as well.

If we hear about any other issues or problems that the industry and businesses are facing, be sure, we will be on those as well. 

The app can be found here.

PasswordWrench Password Manager Version 2.0

Today PasswordWrench launched our version 2.0 of our Password Manager. We have added several features intended to give our users more security and more options on how they can use our services.

First, we added an audit log for all paid subscriptions. You will be able to know when you logged in/out and monitor other actions on the account. This is an important feature because many accounts on the web gets hijacked without the knowledge of the user because they cannot see someone else logged in and impersonates them to access their account. With this feature, if someone does that, you will see it and you can take action.

Second, we now provide dual-authentication. We are not following the pack as SMS is still unsecure. We instead created a new system using our own Password Card approach. Just simply create a Password Card, print it or download the PNG, and you will use that as your dual authentication PINs. It’s simple, fast and easy. Even better, it does NOT rely on a third party carrier.

Next, you can now share passwords with other people. Sometimes you have an account you are sharing with your spouse, your child, or with colleagues at work, etc. and you want to keep those passwords safe. With the shared password tools, you will be able to use, manage, and share strong passwords. There is no more need to share written passwords or files, and you can manage who accesses which password anywhere in a centralized system. It’s very convenient and will eliminate phone calls asking “what is the password?”

We also added several enterprise features that allow any companies to provide to their employees the best and most secure password manager available. Our product helps companies manage their employees and other users along with rule policies. For example, you can group users into departments allowing a distribution of responsibilities. You will be able to set when passwords should be renewed, and when to warn your users about updating their passwords based on your corporate policies.

We are focused on providing the best and most secure products available and working hard to accomplish this mission. We hope you will like these new features and you are welcome to provide us feedback. We listen to our customers!


Patrick Tardif, founder

Why PasswordWrench is needed – a word from our Founder

My name is Patrick Tardif and I founded to provide a solution to people where they can preserve their passwords safely without forcing them to trust anyone. The more projects I managed for clients from Fortune 100 to start-ups, I realized how lax a lot of security protocols really are when implemented in daily-usage patterns. Software consulting requires direct access to sensitive data, but it wasn’t until my wife had her identity stolen and watched her go through that ordeal of fixing it that I realized just how vulnerable most people and companies are. Password management systems are great for ease of use, but my first question was – why would I trust another party to owning or managing all of my passwords?

I managed my own passwords for years using my own system. There was a need for me to create a system so that my own passwords will be complex enough and contain characters that match the requirements of the sites I regularly use. Many of those sites require a mix of numeric, upper case characters and symbols and this was becoming very difficult to remember, especially when I followed best practices of changing them regularly and ensuring none of them were identical. I searched for tools to help and discovered a huge fundamental flaw in password managers; I was forced to enter my passwords into their system.

The news is rife with stories of celebrities being hacked, identify theft on the rise, and perhaps more ominously, the NSA, Edward Snowden and all the stories about government agencies spying on their own people. I wondered how I could create a way so that people don’t have to enter their passwords at all - a way that is secure no matter if the system gets hijacked. I figured out a way to do this, and came up with

I state unequivocally that this is THE MOST SECURE password manager available on the market today. You can create safe and secure passwords using this system, all without having to give away your passwords. How can I legitimize this claim? It’s simple. We do not record passwords in our system; instead, we use an innovative way that uses a hint, and a password card that is unique to you. You can even print your password card and put it in your wallet since it’s designed to be the same size as a credit card.

I created a list of the main threats against identity theft and addressed each of those.

  1. You can also use it offline, without any electronic devices. If you use only one computer, for example, and you are not logged in, how can you use a strong password that you can remember without writing it down? Our printed password card will resolve that issue for you.
  2. Our system protects you against more sophisticated threats as well. A good example of this is virtual reality, the gaming industry, and new gadgets that being developed that can exert various forms of mind alterations. If you choose to believe the worst, and I have my doubts that government is capable and fast enough to keep up with rapidly changing technologies, then mind reading and control may soon follow. If you use our system, the chances that you remember your passwords of long strings of random characters is low, therefore these types of devices wouldn’t even be able to extract that info from you.
  3. Our system will also protects you against hidden, and not-so-hidden cameras. As CCTV and web-enabled cameras become ubiquitous, alongside arming everyone with a mobile recording phone, the chances of your login actions to your sites being recorded of course rises. By using the PasswordWrench system you can bypass that concern.
  4. The net that captures thousands or even millions of users’ data at once simply by hacking into a third party site. If you store your passwords in one site, doesn’t that already make you more vulnerable?

As the founder of PasswordWrench and a daily user, I welcome your feedback and opinions. I ask that you check out the site and make the decision for yourself. Who do you trust these days? Zero Trust architecture is our motto. Fixing the problem after it’s a problem is the nightmare we’re trying to help you avoid.

PasswordWrench Launches the Only Truly Secure Password Protector

November 15th, 2016 – PasswordWrenchTM today announced the launch of its patent-pending password management solution which protects individuals’ and corporations confidential information, reducing online identity theft. PasswordWrench offers a unique secure password manager system that helps users create and recall complex passwords, making it nearly impossible for criminals to hack information.

Currently, over 15 million people in the U.S. have their identities stolen each year and with recent hacks into Yahoo!, Dropbox, LinkedIn and other major databases, this number continues to grow, leaving over 100 million people’s information vulnerable. Globally, Kaspersky Labs has estimated that over 1.8 billion accounts have been compromised.

“Hackers accessed personal information from at least half a billion Yahoo! accounts, and users had to change their passwords immediately. Increased identity and database hacks have left corporations and individuals more vulnerable than ever,” says Patrick Tardif, founder of PasswordWrench. “We are all susceptible to threats—anything from a hacker uncovering a user’s passwords at a coffee-shop, to stealing their on-line identity, to hacking corporate sites’ confidential information. PasswordWrench mitigates that risk and keeps digital data safer than any other system available.”

Typical password management solutions store passwords in the cloud and when systems are penetrated, hackers can gain access to sensitive information, including client email addresses, password reminders and encrypted versions of master passwords.

PasswordWrench is different from other password managers as it never stores users’ managed passwords; therefore, passwords are not vulnerable to hackers. PasswordWrench believes the best way to keep passwords truly secure is not to share them with ANY third party, including a password manager system. PasswordWrench digitally generates a password card with random letters, symbols and numbers. Users are then guided to recall these complex passwords without PasswordWrench storing the actual passwords online.  This unique program is the safest way to manage passwords without having to remember strings of random characters or upload passwords to third-party websites. For additional protection, users can download a physical copy of the password card or easily access their cards online.  

The PasswordWrench system protects against:

1) weak password threats

2) keylogger threats

3) hidden camera threats

4) insider threats

5) guesswork/brute-force threats.

Additionally, PasswordWrench employs top security protocols by encrypting all data in its database, across all communication channels, and all data delivered to the end browser and then, PasswordWrench sets everything behind firewalls. PasswordWrench uses top-level encryption technologies including AES 256 bits, RSA, SSL/TLS and more.

PasswordWrench is currently available and offer a free plan to individuals, with a range of packages offered to corporate enterprises at:
