About Kaspersky Security Cloud
Kaspersky Security Cloud is an application that provides flexible protection against digital threats for all devices of home users.
- Monitoring of the use of the same passwords on critical websites (such as financial resources, social networks, and email) and non-critical websites. Kaspersky Security Cloud shows a notification if you enter a password, which is used on critical websites, on another website.
- Check for password strength when a password is changed or when a new password is created. The application also prompts you to use Kaspersky Password Manager for convenient management of passwords.
