The privacy and security of the passphrase is of utmost importance for their clients. Virtual Keyboard is a graphical interface where users can select letters and symbols with a mouse from a randomly ordered list to form a passphrase, thus eliminating keyboard use. "We must fight for privacy and encourage other companies to do that too" developers spoke unanimously."
