Apple's new open source project lets password management apps integrate with websites
For us internet denizens, it's important to ensure that our online accounts are secured. Different accounts for different sites are recommended, but it's often hard to keep track of them without an app. Luckily, Apple wants to make it easier for password management apps to integrate with popular websites.
Yesterday, Apple announced the launch of the Password Manager Resources. This is an open-source project to help password management app developers to create strong passwords that will be compatible with popular websites. Also, the project will let developers integrate website-specific requirements used by the iCloud Keychain password manager to generate strong, unique passwords.
Like many open-source projects, the goal here is to let developers collaborate and make password management apps better overall. It's also a way to work towards creating a standard for such apps, as well as get more people to trust and use them. If you're a developer and want to find out more, you can check out the project page.
For now, this project doesn't mean much to the average Joe. However, we're hoping that this means we'll see better and more reliable password management apps in the future. With that said, what do you think about this? Do you track your passwords with apps? Let us know on our Facebook page about which app you find most reliable!
