This extension is for securing text strings in an easy way. It can encrypt strings, so they will be secure to be stored.
Q: What encryption algorithm is used for encryption?
A: The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is a U.S. Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS). It was selected after a 5-year process where 15 competing designs were evaluated. It supports AES-128, AES-192, and AES-256. It will pick the variant by the size of the key you pass in.
Q: Is it safe?
A: No effective cryptanalysis of AES cipher is known to date, it's officially recommended by many security agencies (including NSA). It's more than enough, it could take billions of years for a Brute Force attack to find a password to decrypt original message.
Q: Do you store the strings or passwords?
A: No, we don't. Since the encryption happens on client-side, it's safe, it does not send any data to our servers.
We do NOT store a copy of the text or secret word. Also vSecure is using client-side encryption (Browser encryption). You even can disconnect from the internet after opening the extension, and encrypt being completely offline. So you'll be sure that we don't have a copy of your data or secret word.
