    We use passwords for logging in different systems on a daily basis. If we want to satisfy some minimal security requirements, we need to use a different password for every system (web page) and this password must also be sufficiently complex. It is hard to remember so many passwords. That’s why we need special applications for safely storing them. First we will present the basic of authentication. We will start by going through different kinds of authentications (with passwords, biometric data and security tokens) and present their advantages and weaknesses. We will also present a few applications that deal with this problem. The main part describes the development of our application for storing passwords. The application consists of two parts. The first part is mobile application and is intended for storing passwords. The second part is an application designed for a computer and is used for accessing stored passwords.
