Abstract

Password Managers are widely available software, but only a small fraction of internet users make use of them. This is mainly due to the fact that the majority of them do not recognise the need for such a software as they feel there is no threat to their online services. The others who recognise this threat do end up using one of the many password managers available. After the initial setup, the user is left with a secure way of logging in to his / her online services; albeit a bit cumbersome. But then news hits that the user data of an online service has been compromised and the users are requested to change passwords to avoid any further damage. This might not be a scenario that everyone finds themselves in very often; but when they do, they are left with a very cumbersome method of manually changing passwords. Even when there is no threat to your account, it is usually a good practice to change your password ever so frequently. To make this process easier, a few password managers such as Dashlane and LastPass have introduced a feature called automatic password change. This helps in the periodical change of password without the user’s involvement. But these softwares use methods that, while adequately secure for a normal user, is still very vulnerable in many areas. In this paper we specify some of these loopholes and try to provide a comprehensive solution. We also propose some new methods of security that improve upon the methods used in these softwares.
