PassSec+ is an extension of the original PassSec add-on. The functionality of the Firefox-desktop add-on is split into two key functions, as explained in more detail below:
- Protection of passwords, bank details and other sensitive data
- Changing cookie settings for more privacy
Entering sensitive information, such as passwords and payment data is part of everyday life for all Internet users. When entering such information, first of all it is important that the website itself is secure and that data transmission is secured using HTTPS.
PassSec+ informs you if the appropriate input fields on a website are transmitted securely, via HTTPS. If this is the case, a green frame and a security indicator is displayed in the field.
