Password Padlock is really a very nice and wonderful app for us. We can store all our passwords and that too at a safe and secure place. According to my opinion, this is really a must try app. However, you must make your Master Password very strong so that it cannot be accessed by anyone.

While cleaning up my computer, my Password Padlock converted to access thru One Drive. How do I return it to the original access for Padlock? The One Drive version has only a few of the passwords on it and I need access to all of my passwords.
I want to lock just one application – Windows 10 Mail application that contains 5 of our email accounts. Is such selective locking available in Password Padlock?
How can I recover my password for password padlock?
my password seems to have been changed! I cannot get into my password padlock. I don’t even remember doing a Hint question, but I answered that and that is not my password. In any case, the answer to the hint question was not my password. What do I do now?
