Organizing your items with tags

Tags overview

Tags allow you to add descriptive text labels to items to allow you to group items together, and to search for items in the future. Password Boss already groups your items by type - passwords, digital notes, digital wallet, etc. Using tags allows you to extend this grouping to match whatever your needs are.

  • Tags are especially useful when you have a large number of saved items.
  • You can add as many tags to items as you need.

Tags are unique to each user, allowing each user to categorize items in a way that works for them.  When you share an item with other recipients your tags are not sent to the recipient.

Examples of how to use tags

  • Client management - use different tag for each client to group all of the items for each client together.  you can then search for the tag name and find all items.
  • Project management - make tags for each of your projects or areas of your work, for example: Marketing, HR, New Products
  • Organize family items - create tags for each member of your family to group each persons items together, for example: Dad, Anna, Family, etc.

You can use tags to create custom view of your saved items. Learn more.
