As you are logged in, these widgets let you access directly your PDA account and will assist you whenever possible. Typically, Privowny Keyboard will help you retrieve account information you have on websites or for applications and save for you credentials you input as you log in onto websites and applications. Also, it will assist you during registration by allowing you to generate an account (an email alias and a strong password) or generate separately an email alias and a password.

Click on the PDA icon in your browser, then click LOGIN and you will see a dialog window which shows a “Forgot password?” link. Just click on it and follow the instructions. Same logic applies for the PDA mobile application.
Does PDA store my Master Password?
No. Your Master Password is not stored anywhere.

If you are not active for a period of three years (as per EU regulation) we will delete your account. A reminder email will be sent to your primary email address first. If you don’t act, then the system will automatically delete your account and all your data permanently. You will then receive a confirmation email that your account has been deleted.
About PDA Password Manager
Password Manager supports the secure storage of website and mobile app login credentials. In addition, it allows for the generation of strong passwords that enhance a user’s online security. All passwords are encrypted using the best standards and solely accessible by users using a unique Master Password only known by them.
Why should I use PDA Password Manager instead of Chrome or Firefox Password managers?
If you use Chrome or Firefox password managers, your passwords are stored locally, and you need to stick to one of those browsers to retrieve your passwords. It won’t work as you are using mobile applications or a different browser than the one you usually use. With PDA, whatever the browser (Chrome/Firefox) and device is, you will always be able to access and retrieve your passwords. Also, none of these browsers passwords managers allow you to generate strong passwords as you register on websites and applications, which PDA Password Manager does.
Why should I use PDA Password Manager?
You probably have many accounts on online websites and like many people you may either use the same or similar password everywhere and if not, you may have forgotten some already. Having a too simple passwords and re-using them across websites is like giving the keys to your personal data as many of these websites are breached by not paying sufficient attention to security.

PDA Password Manager helps your manage hundreds of password that you can securely access anywhere from any device. It also helps you generate strong and unique passwords that cannot be guessed when websites are breached. PDA Password Manager lets you conveniently access your credentials while browsing or in apps using the PDA Keyboard.
Can I import my passwords and accounts from another Password Manager into PDA?
Yes. You can import your accounts from LastPass or Dashlane. You need to go on https://beta.privowny.com or access “My account” from your PDA browser extension. Then select the “Import passwords” option on the left menu and follow the process.
Can I have multiple credentials for the same website?
Yes. PDA’s Password Manager lets you create as many as account as you want per company website. You can do it manually but PDA on browser or with the Android Keyboard will automatically save them for you. At the time you need them, PDA will show you the list of credentials you can use on a specific destination and signing in will be as simple as selecting the account you want to use.
Does PDA store my websites’ credentials?
Yes. As you sign in websites and mobile applications, PDA automatically encrypts and stores your credentials and notifies you. You will be able to access this data onto PDA Password Manager from any device (PC or mobile or tablet).
About PDA Alias@ Manager
Alias@ Manager enables the generation of anonymized email addresses when users register on websites or Mobile Apps. These addresses protect users’ actual email addresses, mitigate SPAM, and mitigate the risks of exposure and theft in case of data breaches.
What is an alias@ email address?
As you subscribe to services, newsletters and any other service that requires an email, you can use the Alias@ Manager to generae for you a unique email address assigned to you for the service you are subscribing to. Whenever the service sends you emails, it will use your alias and PDA will forward these emails to your primary email address. The benefits are manyfold; you never share your primary email address when you generate an alias.
Does Privowny read and store emails sent to alias@ email addresses?
No. We do not store them, just forward them to your primary email address.
Where do emails sent to an active alias@ go?
Privowny forwards them to your primary email address left when you registered. You can open PDA Alias@ and verify.
Where do emails sent to a blocked/deleted alias@ go?
As you delete or block an alias, all emails sent to it are destroyed/ignored. Note that to avoid further spam, no response is sent back to the sender. You may want to contact potential senders to update your email if needed.
Can I reply to an email that has been sent to one of my alias email addresses from the same alias?
No. For now, if you reply to an email sent to your alias email address, it will disclose your primary email address.
If I suspend receiving an alias email does this opt-me out of the email service?
No. You will not receive any email from this service, but you will still be in its database. We do not unsubscribe you.
About PDA Tracker Manager
Tracker Manager helps users identify and control advertising, analytics, social and behavioral tracking scripts, which eliminates unwanted advertising, monitoring, and can fend off malware, including crypto currency miners. Last but not least, it improves their browsing experience from a speed/performance perspective as well as an overall usability, so their level of satisfaction.
What is a tracker?
A “tracker” is as category of cookie that calls external third parties programs. Trackers can be used for a variety of reasons :
- to help remember your preferences or intentions on a site or an app
- to understand how you and other users are using a site or an app
- for logging onto a service or to make sure you’re logged in securely.


The trackers that appear to be the most controversial are the ones tracking your preferences, intentions and searches to serve you targeted advertising on websites as you surf.

When we surf, we are monitored by “programs” we don’t see and are not aware of. PDA shows you this hidden activity. And beyond than showing you trackers, PDA lets you understand who they are and block them.

We have categorized for you the type of trackers websites are using. You may decide, by tracker or category, to block or unblock them.

On both Web and mobile, blocking trackers not only protects one’s privacy but it also noticeably improves the browsing experience as pages load and display faster. Even more appreciable, on mobile, blocking trackers will spare a ton of unnecessary cellular bandwidth consumption and could significantly reduce your bill.
I’ve blocked all advertising trackers, why am I still seeing ads on some pages?
PDA may have whitelisted some trackers as blocking them would affect your browsing experience significantly or PDA may have missed some. Don’t hesitate to send us a feedback through the extension or mobile app so that we can improve our service.
Why doesn’t a website display correctly when I access it?
Try to reload the page. If the problem persists, open the Trackers Manager and switch the toggle Off for this website to allow trackers to run. Reload the page, it should work. We would appreciate you send us a feedback mentioning the name of the website and the context through the extension or mobile app so that we can improve our service.
I turned off my tracker popup and now I can’t figure out how to turn it back on
Open the tracker window and select the “Show this window automatically when visiting a website” option.

About PDA Dashbaord
Insights Dashboard is a personalized analytics interface that displays the respective insights on personal information usage. It reports on the types of data shared or left on websites, with an analysis of behaviors, interests, habits, online and mobile usage.
Why an Interest Profile Dashboard?
As soon as you start surfing with your browser, it and websites/trackers collect data about you. Typically, most of the browsers record at least the past 7 days of your browsing activity, your downloads, as well as your searches and what you have left on forms. In addition, trackers collect your browsing activity, your purchase intentions, etc… So, the Internet profile dashboard is a first step to help you to understand what the Internet knows about you. With your PDA, you can now start to build your online interest profile which could turn into value in the future.
Why do I need a Master Password as I have already set a password at registration time?
Your login password lets you get in your account. Your MASTER PASSWORD lets you decrypt data PDA has encrypted for you. As you can tell, these are two distinct functions. So, if someone steals your session password, they still cannot decrypt your data. As PDA never stores your Master Password, only YOU can decrypt your data.
How secure is PPDA?
As you use PDA extension or PDA Mobile App :

1 - You need to be logged in to access any feature and/or data

2 - All encrypted and unencrypted data is transported over TLS (and HTTPS from browsers) which means that it is encrypted and non readable over the network

3 - Your account and associated data are stored into a cloud platform securely architected and protected by various levels of defense including state of the art firewalls. This platform and all its components have been audited and validated by a global security firm.

4 - Your Master Password is not stored anywhere on our platform

5 - For encrypting your data, PDA uses a process based on the highest security standards and algorithms (RSA-public key/private key pair, SHA, AES, PBKDF2, …) so that you can protect the data you want from being accessed and seen by anybody else but you. The two tenants of our privacy protection are :
- Your encrypted data always remains unreadable in our database so the information is useless to us and anyone who would be able to access this data
- You are the only person who can see the value of your encrypted data.

6 - All your internet accounts’ passwords are automatically encrypted as they are collected and stored into your PDA account

7 - Any encrypted data, such as your accounts passwords, can only be decrypted and accessed by you with your MASTER PASSWORD

8 - You can elect to encrypt any data
Where is my data stored?
Your data is safely stored in a private cloud on AWS Ireland (Europe).
