Cross-platform syncing is a big reason why cloud-based password managers like Locker have enjoyed so much success. It is now the default expectation many have with these applications. At the end of the day, people don’t want to worry about data maintenance.
Here is how automatic syncing can help you manage passwords more easily and how it is implemented in Locker.
Benefits Of Syncing In Password Management
When the modern lifestyle makes us more dependent on devices like computers and smartphones, everything should be streamlined and seamless, including your password manager. There is no reason you shouldn’t be able to quickly set up a new vault, add new items, and make them available on every device you own.
The most convenient implementation is cloud-based solutions. You have an account from a provider, who helps you store and keep your passwords safe.
But manually creating new accounts is a pain. You will have to fill in a bunch of fields again, including another password. That is when third-party logins come to the rescue.
They can access your existing Google or Facebook account and create a new account linked to it. Just a few seconds, and you can have your password manager ready to use.
However, what is the point of an empty vault where you have to enter each item again? A great password manager should allow you to import data from another application.
With this data portability, you can switch to a new vault with ease. Once the import finishes, every device of yours can access the same database from everywhere.
Backups are also a great use of those exports. You can have a copy of your data outside of the password manager. Even when a serious accident happens, you don’t lose your personal data.
How Locker Can Keep Your Data In Sync
Integrate Popular Social Login Platforms
During the signup process, Locker gives you plenty of options. In addition to traditional account creation with your own email, you can reuse other accounts.
Locker has fully integrated Github, Facebook, and Google third-party logins. Just pick the service and identity you want to connect with your Locker account, and that is it. There is no need to type in your email, name, and (another) password.
If you have multiple devices (which Locker supports even in the free plan), accessing your passwords is just easy. Using the same social account and your vault will be ready in the blink of an eye.
Syncing your passwords using third-party logins is a prime example of passwordless authentication. It isn’t just more convenient but also can be more secure, as a trusted provider manages your logins on your behalf.
From the setting panel of Facebook or Google, you can see which apps and services have access to your account. They only have limited permissions and can’t see your credentials. You can monitor their access and stop any suspicious login any time you want.
Support Data Import From Other Password Managers
If you have built up a collection of logins somewhere, transferring it to Locker is a breeze. You can import saved accounts from an extensive range of password managers and browsers.
As long as the other application can export readable file formats like .csv and .json, don’t worry about locked-in databases. There is always a guide for this export-import function for each application. Your Locker vault in every device will be filled with the credentials you have entered before.
Easy To Save And Sync New Passwords
Along with support for importing existing passwords, Locker also makes new entries a pleasant experience.
When you log in to an app or site using credentials not available in the vault, Locker will automatically suggest saving them for you. All you have to do is accept it. This new account should now be in your vault and kept in sync together with other logins.
The syncing capability of a password manager is crucial for most users. And by implementing several advanced technologies and smart design, Locker makes it work effortlessly out of the box.
They facilitate data accessibility and promote user adoption. Your sensitive data isn’t just safe with Locker but also available on the go from any device of your choice.
