Password reuse is one of the top ways hackers gain access to sensitive data. Shield alerts you to password reuse and gives you a clear path to update those passwords and secure your online identity.
Shield validates each website you visit to make sure that you’re in the right place. It detects lookalike phishing websites and alerts you right on the screen, before you enter any sensitive information.
Our commitment to privacy
Single sign-on (SSO) solutions like OneLogin can reduce or even eliminate passwords for many applications, but some applications still require passwords. Shield builds upon OneLogin’s existing threat capabilities and empowers you to improve security in all the places where you can’t eliminate passwords yet. The Shield browser extension protects individuals and enterprises from password reuse, identity reuse, weak password practices, and phishing. It works with any existing identity provider to provide three key capabilities:
Educates users and works to prevent the high-risk practice of using identical or commonly used passwords across any website, including personal and corporate applications
Alerts administrators when corporate accounts are used for personal applications, decreasing the attack surface for corporate account takeovers and data breaches
Identifies and blacklists websites that have a high probability of fraud and attempt to trick users into entering their credentials
Shield is available to everyone as a free service. Once downloaded, Shield appears in the browser’s toolbar and starts to detect instances of weak or reused passwords or phishing attempts. Built with privacy in mind, Shield securely hashes the information it stores, and never sends it back to a server.
The enterprise-grade version offers additional functionality like forced install through G Suite, administrator alerts, the ability to suspend user accounts if malicious activity is detected, and the ability to export intelligence to Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) tools for additional reporting, analysis, and compliance.
