Lenovo Reach revealed; will remember all of your passwords

Lenovo maybe one of the few PC companies that is actually growing its business, but Lenovo also wants to enter other markets such as smartphones and tablets. This weekend, the company quietly revealed yet another project they have in the works: Lenovo Reach.

The company posted a video on their YouTube site late Sunday that gives a quick overview of Lenovo Reach. Basically, it's a cloud service that does more that allow its users to store data on a server, although it does that as well with 5 GB of free space. It also offers a way to store all of the passwords that a user has to keep up with. The end result is that a person only needs to remember one login and password to access all of their websites and services.

Lenovo Reach also apparently offers one consistent user interface across all devices (PCs, tablets, smartphones) to quickly access their sites along with a way to quickly find any files on any of their online storage services. Lenovo Reach is currently in its preview phase but users can sign up on its website to be considered for entry in the beta program; the final version of Lenovo Reach should go live later this year.

Firefox Sync only store encrypted information.

They should try more towards physical security features like bio metrics and such where its purely you, no chance of leakage

Like adding a DNA reader to every system?
Login...... please wait 2 weeks for the results.

Fingerprint readers are easily fooled, so are iris readers. It ads a layer but if it becomes the default... it will be easily bypassed by everyone.

The best way to keep your passwords safe is to never write them down, never store them anywhere and just remember them.

Finally, someone who knows whats up!

Biometrics nowadays are better used as "user name entry", not as "password entry".

So... Scan your finger, and then enter your personal PIN before entering a room.

Partially why I don't use either of those browsers!

Just like I do!!

Don't particularly care for Lenovo either. Have one here that has to be the dumbest computer ever built!

LOL yup.. let everyone store their passwords in one place.. I don't care how crazy secure their system is.. Anyone stupid enough to do this deserves what they get..

And LastPass, and KeePass, and Firefox/Chrome sync. They're entering a very crowded marketplace. Will be interesting to see if they can actually make any leeway.

Talk about putting all your eggs in one basket. I wouldn't trust all my passwords in one location like that.

LOL, look at everyone here commenting like smartasses, as if anybody really kept a fraction of their passwords in one manager and another fraction in another manager.

I keep each of my passwords broken up in 3 different locations. If you had access to one location, you would still need access to the other two in order to construct a working password for any one login.

I think I'll stick with LastPass.

Same here, though I'm not opposed to using something else if it provides a compelling reason to switch.

Unconditional brand loyalty really isn't much more than unfounded laziness.

Isn't Lenovo mainly owned by the Bank of China, back since they took over IBM's PC division? And the Bank of China is wholly owned and operated by the Chinese Government.

So therefor you would be trusting all your usernames and passwords with the Chinese Government!.
