If you lose or forget the master password, you cannot retrieve it. For security reasons, TweakPass doesn’t save anything. Be sure to choose master passwords you remember because if you forget them, you will lose all saved logins.
To access from any and everywhere, make sure you install and use the browser extension. TweakPass provides browser extensions for Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Edge. This will make life easy and you will become more productive with a password manager.

After setting up the password manager, the first time you log into a site or create a new login, type in your account’s username and password. This way the password manager will be able to capture details and fill them in next time you use the site.
Not only this, if you think the password you are using is not secure you can generate a secure password. To do so, when using the TweakPass extension, click the TweakPass icon > select Generate Secure Password.
Here, you will see an auto-generated password, copy it, and replace it with the current one. Moreover, if you want you can change the password length, decide on minimum numeric characters you want, and customize other settings.
Not only this, using Password challenge you can check how secure the master password is.
To do so, again use the TweakPass browser extension and click Password challenge.
In the next window, enter the master password and check the score.
This way you will know how secure the master is.

As you use the password manager and save details, it will have almost all the records of your username and password combinations for online accounts. After you have used TweakPass – password manager long enough, you will be able to see the list of all saved passwords. You can audit the list and see when was the last time you modified the passwords.
This helps detect old passwords and replace them with new ones.

Not all best password managers offer a way to destroy all active sessions logged in using it. But TweakPass gives this option. If you doubt that someone has access to your password or you left your password manager logged in at some other device, you can use the Destroy Session options.
Using it, you will be able to kill all the sessions logged in with the TweakPass vault. This way without even accessing the device you can log out.
