One of the best ways to secure your account & keep your passwords safe from attacks is by using one time passwords. However, despite their usefulness, OTPS are not easy to use which is why many people simply avoid them entirely.
‘Avain’ makes it easy to use OTPs. It’s an easy to use, modern & secure one time password manages that not only safely encrypts & protects your accounts but also syncs your one-time passwords securely between your devices so you can log into your accounts using OTPs faster & more conveniently.
All encryption on Avain is done using Web Crypto which ensures that no one is able to access your data but you. Your Avain password is hashed using PBKDF2 protocol, the hashed one time password is then used as a master keys which is then used for encrypting your OTP URLs making it more secure. This is done using Advanced Encryption Standard AES-CBC then salted using random Secure Hash Algorithm SHA-256.
