Breaches: only fun for whales

With more of our lives being shared online, getting hacked can be a nuisance at best and a catastrophe at worst. It's a growing problem—2014 is known as the "Year of the Data Breach" with an unprecedented 1 billion+ personal and business records exposed. Roughly 70% of those records include leaked passwords. 2015 is expected to be worse.

Despite the statistics, people often still use the same password for different sites, allowing criminals to easily test stolen credentials across multiple sites and gain access to valuable accounts: banking, email, file hosting, photo sharing, social media, and more.

The solution? Using strong and unique passwords for every account. It's one of the first steps you can take to safeguard your digital life.

Strong, unique passwords that aren’t stored anywhere.

Password Chef helps you design your own password "recipe" that can turn the letters in any site name into a unique password for that site. A single recipe can produce passwords for many accounts.
