PasswordBox has already won over a lot of users and now they can call a few high profile angel investors, including a Facebook exec as a few more.
Today, just three months after launching the company announced its Series A funding, to the tune of $6 million. It also announced that one million users are using the platform. the Dan Robichaud-cofounded startup that locks up all your passwords in one safe, secure place, accessible by a one-click login.
The round was led by OMERS Ventures, and includes strategic Silicon Valley angel investors, involving BOKU’s Mark Britto and Facebook’s head of ecommerce, Lee Linden. PasswordBox, a secure and easy-to-use password management solution, plans to use the funds to continue scaling and growing its team.
“Thirty eight percent of Americans believe it would be easier to achieve world peace than to remember all of their online passwords,” said CEO Dan Robichaud. “PasswordBox offers a simple and highly secure password management solution. We’ve now reached over one million users, and continue to grow both as a company and team.”
The company mentioned that online consumers have an average of 25 online accounts and yet the majority of people reuse the same username and password across multiple websites. (Admit it: you do this too). However, having a different, strong password for each website increases security, and PasswordBox generates strong passwords that provide users with “military-level protection” of their information.
