Broadband ISP TalkTalk UK Launches Password Protection App

TalkTalk Logo 2017

Low cost broadband ISP TalkTalk has worked with internet security firm F-Secure to launch a new Password Manager app as part of their “SuperSafe Boost“, which securely stores logins so customers only need to remember one master password as the app automatically populates log-in details.

We should point out that there are a whole heap of Password Manager style applications to be found online, many of which are free. On top of that we tend to discourage the use of any services that could potentially make it harder to switch ISP (e.g. always get your email from a different provider, never your ISP if you can help it). We suspect this new app may fall into that category given the extra cost.

At present the basic “SuperSafe” feature comes included with all of TalkTalk’s broadband plans (i.e. online protection against viruses, ransomware, phishing scams and malicious websites), but that only covers a single device and excludes the new Password Manager.

Phil Amy, Commercial & Product Director at TalkTalk, said:

“We’re committed to providing our customers with the very best online security, that’s why we’ve enhanced our SuperSafe Boost with protection for even more devices and added our new Password Manager app. With the convenience of only having to remember one secure password, we’ve made it even easier for our customers to stay safe online.”

It’s not mentioned in the press release (bit of an oversight there TalkTalk), but you’ll need to pay an extra £2 per month to add the “SuperSafe Boost,” which adds online defence for 10 devices and the new Password Manager to protect “all of the family’s mobiles, tablets and computers” (note: it’s quite easy these days for a family to have more than 10 devices as I can attest).

    That sounds like an incredibly bad idea, and that’s before you consider TalkTalk’s security record…

    Also the ten device limit is a bit rubbish. I bet most families have more than that. I have 6 just for myself that have password managers installed.

    Bitwarden is an amazing password manager, has loads of features and is free
