Disperse and dispell passwords with a free alternative manager.

Project description

DisPass is a password manager for GNU/Linux, *BSD, MacOS X and Windows. It can be used as any traditional password manager, but has one key difference. DisPass does not store your passwords anywhere, so you can never lose them. It creates strong and unique passphrases formed from a master password and a label (and some optional parameters), helping you get rid of the bad habit of using a single password for multiple websites. Dispass is a console application, but also has a simple graphical interface.

Quick start

These are quick instructions for the impatient, just wanting to check out DisPass. For full documentation on using DisPass, visit http://dispass.org

Download

Download and install DisPass from the Python Package Index with pip:

pip install --user dispass

Using DisPass for the first time

For this example we will create a passphrase to use for a google account.

  1. Create and save a label google to the labelfile:

    dispass add google
    
  2. Generate the passphrase for the first time. Since you will need to register the passphrase with google we pass the --verify flag or simply -v so DisPass asks us to verify the password and we can avoid typing errors in the input password while creating the resulting passphrase for the first time:

    dispass generate --verify google
    

Mini screencast

Checkout the following mini screencast. In this demo the label is added interactively.
