'ZDNet Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNet's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNet nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNet's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.


Deal alert: Get NordPass password manager for two years for only $29

This cybersecurity deal will keep your passwords protected for 60% off original price.
Written by Rebecca Isaacs, Staff Writer on

After getting the umpteenth notification in your email inbox about a compromised password (we feel your pain), it's time to start looking at more secure options. After all, remembering every single letter, number, and symbol when you've had to change your Facebook account's password every few months can get confusing. With NordPass' surprise sale, you won't have to worry about remembering passwords -- because it will remember your passwords for you.

And, of course, it will keep them encrypted so that you know your passwords are safe and secure. NordPass security was designed and built by NordVPN, a company devoted to keeping its 14 million users secure on the internet from malicious hackers and other malware. When you purchase this bundle deal -- good for two years -- you'll be getting the same customer support while making sure you know exactly where your passwords are.

Your passwords will sync across all your devices with NordPass and you'll be able to store unlimited passwords. Additionally, you can also save your credit card information, so checkouts when they are time-sensitive will be speedy and effortless.

A month-by-month plan is typically billed at $5, so two years for only $29 translates to savings of $91. The sale starts today and lasts for a few weeks, so if you need time to read reviews or decide whether this is the best fit for your needs, you have time. That being said, if encrypted protection is something you've been eyeing for some time, we recommend buying it today, as this is the best deal we've seen on encrypted passwords for some time.
