Password Management in Windows 8

Microsoft is planning to adopt extremely safe and secure approach to Password Management in Windows 8. Any one would be bugged when it comes to remembering a large number of different passwords. The situation becomes more frustrating when every website has a different rule for entering passwords.

For example, some websites need only alphanumeric passwords, others need a combination of uppercase and lowercase characters with one or more special characters and some others want a minimum of 8 characters and so on. These rules require you to create a different password for each website (that need you to login). In their latest operating system i.e. Windows 8, Microsoft has eliminated the problem of multiple passwords with “password storage and syncing”.
