BEAM


Reimagining Password Management

The Problem


People nowadays still make weak passwords, reuse passwords, and have a vulnerable approach to password management. Although existing password management tools can help people generate unique passwords and keep track of them, they are not used by many because they are perceived as not valuable and difficult to use. How do we remedy this to make password managers more valuable and approachable?

Most people operate on the assumption that passwords should be kept secret and never shared. However, the reality is that password sharing is more common than we think. Have you ever managed joint banking accounts with your spouse? Shared shopping accounts, like Amazon? Shared Github accounts with your coworkers? Helped your parents or grandparents remember and manage their passwords? The way people currently communicate actual usernames and passwords, either via emails or messaging applications without concern for message encryption, is compromising their digital security. In addition, once a password is shared, the owner has limited visibility about how the shared password is stored and used by others. However, we have found that password sharing can be a positive trigger to help introduce people to password management tools.

The Solution


BEAM is an iOS password management mobile application that normalizes sharing and turns it into a positive trigger for improving password security.

Product Overview


Sharing as a Trigger to Update Password

We prompt users to update their passwords during key moments, such as before sharing and after revoking access.

Increased Control

Users can fine-tune the sharing duration, control whether or not the receivers can see their actual credentials, and require a secret phrase as an extra layer of security. They can also opt to only give one-time access which will allow the receiver to launch the account only once.

Risk Management

Other password managers don’t tell the user that in reality there are many ways for the receiver to save the password without them knowing. Beam mitigates some of these risks by only allowing receivers to access the account from our in-app browser if the sender chooses to not reveal the password.

Visibility

Beam is able to provide senders visibility into the usage activity of their credentials after sharing, allowing them to be better informed about when and how often their receivers are accessing their accounts.
