While working with Password Manager Pro, you will come across some terminologies having unique meanings. It is worthwhile to take a note of those terminologies before proceeding further:

Category Feature Explanation

Password Access Control Workflow

The password availability to the user is time limited. It will be automatically reset thereafter and the user will thereby forfeit the access.
