Passky: The Ultimate Open-Source Password Manager
Passky is open-source. This means that anyone can download it, dig into its code, and customize it to their liking. Using Passky doesn’t require an upfront cost or monthly subscription. It’s completely free to download and can be hosted by anyone who has the space to do so.
When we launched Passky, we setup two servers, each holding up to 1,000 passwords for 100 users apiece. These servers are currently open for new users. But only the first two-hundred people to sign up will get access. Possible future servers are contingent upon a number of factors. So, if you want access to the best, open-source password manager on the market, now is the time to join.
How Does Passky Work?
Some people are hesitant to use a password manager because they fear that it could leave them vulnerable to hackers and other malicious actors. But once you understand the way Passky works, you’ll quickly realize that using a password manager like Passky is far more secure than opting for a single password across all your accounts.
When you save your account information to Passky, all sensitive data is fully encrypted. This means that your sensitive data cannot be accessed by anyone at Passky or by any potential hackers. If someone did access your passwords, they’d only be able to see an encrypted version of it that’s useless without your master key.
So, what is your master key? It’s your own personal password – the one password you need to unlock all other passwords. When you try to access your e-mail or another password protected site, Passky will pull your encrypted password from our server. Then, you’ll input your master password, and it will decrypt the password. So, you’ll only ever need to remember your master password. It will effortlessly unlock every other password you could want.
How Secure is Passky?
Passky simplifies your digital life and solves your password problem. All you’ll ever need to do is remember a single, ultra-secure password that includes uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters. Once you’ve got that written down in your wallet or purse (or buried in your memory), you’ll get the benefit of secure passwords across your online accounts without having to memorize dozens of codewords. This makes it one of the most secure ways to protect your online identity.
But Passky takes security a step further. We’ve implemented a brute force mitigation system that locks out any user who inputs the wrong password too many times. By stopping login attempts for a set time and warning you about an attempted breach, you’ll have time to secure your account by creating a new password or taking other measures.
But is Passky Easy to Use?
Passky has been designed with modern users in mind. That’s why we’ve strived to provide an interface that’s streamlined and easy to use. Unlike some of the competition, Passky can be easily used by anyone, including techies and computer novices. And since it’s built for performance, you won’t need to overtax your CPU or waste a lot of storage space to keep it running.
Downloading and installing Passky to your browser is a simple process that takes less than two-minutes to complete. Once it’s up and running, you can immediately begin managing your passwords with it. Creating, editing, and deleting passwords takes mere seconds. And once you’ve got everything setup, you’ll be able to quickly access all of your password-protected websites and accounts.
How Does Passky Compare to the Competition?
Bitwarden is one of Passky’s biggest competitors. It’s also a free, open-source password manager. But unlike Passky, Bitwarden offers a host of additional features. The only problem is that you’ll likely never use any of them. Most people want a password manager to do one thing really well – not a whole host of things with mediocrity.
Since Passky is designed to do one thing well, it’s faster, less resource intensive, easier to use, and requires less storage space than Bitwarden. Plus, it’s just more modern.
Passky is built for today’s users, not yesterday’s.
But how does Passky stack up against other password managers on the market today?
Unfortunately, that’s the problem with them. Most other password managers are on the market. They’ve been built to be sold to people like you. Those managers aren’t open-source or free. They require an upfront cost, or a monthly or yearly subscription.
