EINDHOVEN, Netherlands – MindYourPass, the innovative cybersecurity company known for its unique approach to password management, announces that it has been granted a patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for its groundbreaking technology. This patent marks a significant milestone for the company, which has developed a password manager that does not store passwords in a digital vault, but instead calculates them using a mathematical formula.

The granted patent, number US11947658B2, recognizes MindYourPass's innovative method for calculating secure passwords. “This recognition by the USPTO is a validation of our vision and hard work,” says Merijn De Jonge, inventor of the formula and CEO of MindYourPass. “Our mission has always been to create a safer internet by eliminating the weak links in password security. With this patent, we can offer our technology on a larger scale and protect users worldwide.”

MindYourPass distinguishes itself from traditional password managers by eliminating the need for a central password storage repository. The patented formula ensures that passwords are dynamically generated at login time. This means that passwords always meet all security requirements and static passwords that can be stolen are a thing of the past. This provides users and organizations with unparalleled protection against hackers and data breaches.

MindYourPass’s unique technology can be used immediately on any website or online application, and therefore helps users and organizations become more secure much faster than alternative technologies. In addition, the technology is applicable much more broadly than just passwords. For example, it is also used to manage Passkeys without storing them anywhere.

With the expansion of the patent to the United States, MindYourPass strengthens its position in the international market and emphasizes its commitment to providing advanced security solutions.
