ExpressVPN’s built-in password manager
ExpressVPN Keys helps you manage unlimited passwords, credit card details, and notes securely on any device—and even alerts you to data breaches and vulnerable passwords.
Best of all, it’s included with any ExpressVPN subscription.
What is a password manager?
A password manager like ExpressVPN Keys securely stores passwords and other sensitive data in an encrypted digital vault. It can also fill in your details automatically when you sign in to websites and apps.
How a password manager works
Password managers like ExpressVPN Keys can generate and store strong passwords for all your online accounts—and then fill them in for you when you sign in.
In addition to usernames and passwords, ExpressVPN Keys can also securely store notes and credit card details, and even generate two-factor authentication (2FA) codes for compatible apps and sites.
Everything you store in Keys is encrypted in a secure vault that only you—not even ExpressVPN—can access using your primary password.
Why you need to use a password manager
Creating and remembering passwords for all your accounts is a hassle, which is why many people use (and reuse) weak passwords. The risk is that this leaves your accounts vulnerable to data breaches and hacks.
With a password manager, you only need to remember one password to manage and secure all your online accounts. ExpressVPN Keys can even generate long, complex passwords that are safer against brute-force attacks and alert you if any of your passwords have been exposed in a data breach.
What makes a password manager safe?
ExpressVPN Keys uses zero-knowledge encryption to protect your privacy. You're the only one who can see your stored data, no one else—not even ExpressVPN—can access it. Even if there's a breach in our secure servers, all your information will remain end-to-end encrypted.
ExpressVPN Keys was built by the same security experts behind our industry-leading VPN and blazing-fast Lightway VPN protocol. Like our VPN, the password manager is secure by design and puts you in control of your data.
ExpressVPN Keys was also independently audited by cybersecurity firm Cure53 to ensure its security across all platforms—iOS, Android, and the Keys Chrome extension.

FAQ: Password managers
How do password managers generate strong passwords?
Password managers like ExpressVPN Keys use encryption algorithms to create random, unique, and complex passwords, making them hard for attackers to crack or guess.
Should you store your passwords in your browser?
Saving your passwords in your browsers like Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Opera may be convenient, but it’s not secure. For one thing, anyone using your devices can access your passwords. Your saved passwords could be compromised if a web browser is hacked or infected with malware.
How can password managers protect my personal information?
Using a secure password manager like ExpressVPN Keys means you can generate long, complex passwords for all your online accounts, which the password manager will store and fill for you. This makes all your online accounts safer and harder to crack.
The security of the password manager you use is also paramount to protecting your personal information. ExpressVPN Keys, for example, uses zero-knowledge encryption which ensures that only you can see your decrypted items—the password management provider has no access to them. You also want to pick a password manager that has been independently audited as this validates its security beyond internal testing.
ExpressVPN Keys can also alert you if your passwords have been exposed in data breaches and help you fix the issues to protect your personal information and privacy. You can even use Keys as an authenticator to generate one-time passwords for any account you’ve chosen to protect with two-factor authentication (2FA)—this is one of the best ways to safeguard your security even if your passwords have been compromised in a breach.
Can I use a web browser to manage my passwords and login information?
Yes, just install the ExpressVPN Keys Chrome extension (which also works for other Chromium browsers such as Edge, Opera, Brave, and Vivaldi) to securely access and manage your saved passwords on your computer.
How do I see my saved passwords?
To see your saved passwords on your mobile, open the ExpressVPN app for Android or iOS, tap Keys, and unlock the password manager using your primary password or biometrics.
To see your saved passwords on your computer, click on the ExpressVPN Keys browser extension icon and enter your primary password to unlock your password manager.
What are password best practices?
Examples of password best practices include:
Never sharing your passwords with others
Use a different password for every online account
Avoid easy-to-guess passwords
Don’t include personal information like your name, birthday, or family member’s details
Use long passwords that are hard to guess or crack (but easy to remember)
Don’t save your password online somewhere that can be hacked
Check sites like Have I Been Pwned to see if your passwords have been compromised in a data breach
Use a password manager so you can store and generate long, complex passwords for every account, and fill them easily and quickly
What else can I do with a password manager?
In addition to protecting your logins, ExpressVPN Keys can also store secure notes and credit/debit cards. Secure notes can be anything you want to keep private, like your passport number, insurance details, or medical information.
A password manager like Keys also comes with a password generator tool to help you create strong, unique, and random passwords. You can even use Keys as an authenticator to generate OTPs for accounts with 2FA. Enabling 2FA on compatible accounts adds an extra layer of protection, preventing unauthorized access even if your passwords are compromised.
As with usernames and passwords, there’s no limit to how many items you can store in Keys. Should you ever want to export your stored data into another ExpressVPN Keys account or password manager service, Keys lets you export your stored items from the ExpressVPN app for Android or iOS, or the ExpressVPN Keys Chrome extension.
