There are billions of passwords in the world today, with more being created every hour of every day, making them a bane of the modern era. The usage of passwords is becoming more common despite the inadequacies . This is making it more tedious and overwhelming for the users to manage, with the passwords being long and unique. In this paper, we propose a solution to securely manage and organize passwords while requiring the user to keep track of only a single password. As our solution is in the form of a browser extension, there is no need for server-side changes. Unlike other password managers, our extension is a lightweight application and is highly resistant to brute force attacks. We discuss the need for a password manager, the construction of our extension along with the security overview.
