Abstract

There are hundreds of thousands of web-sites all over the world. To maintain lists and demographics of their users, many of them require user registration, which includes user names and passwords. This is also true of customer service sites such as bank portals, investment sites, billing services, etc. Many of these sites have different requirements for the character content of the password, leading to many different passwords for one user among the various websites the user may subscribe to. Our invention attempts to solve this problem by providing the user with an application that resolves passwords to all different web sites using a single password as a key to each web site's registration password.
