Netplwiz.exe it’s a useful tool for managing user accounts stored in Windows Vista, 7, 8 and 10.

Features

Secure Logon is a common feature of business computers in a domain network. It provides authentic login prompt which protects the system from programs that imitate the logon screen to retrieve or copy the password information.

When you surf the web and check your e-mail, Internet Explorer will ask you to save your password. If you will use this feature, Windows will store your logon credentials for servers, websites, and programs. When you open one of those websites or programs, Windows will try to log you on automatically.

This is very useful if you always forgot the passwords in different email accounts and websites. Just don’t forget to Backup for restoring them later when needed.
