Single Sign-On script (SSO) that allows you to generate passwords for each online service you're using.

Project description

ilogin is a single sign-on script (SSO) like Google Application Specific Passwords that allows you to generate passwords for each online and offline service you’re using. Check online version at:

This way you will have different passwords for each service and you don’t have to remember them as you’ll be able to obtain each every time you want to login to your service.

The advantage of this script is that your passwords are not stored anywhere, never.


$: easy_install ilogin
$: python install

How it works?

First time when you’ll run this script, you’ll be asked for the new password in order to initialize the database:

$: ilogin

Remember this password as it will be used to login to database and to generate passwords for your services. There is no possible way to recover this password. If you lose it you’ll have to reset all your online services passwords.

Add a service that you want to use with this script:

$: ilogin add
Service: google
Advanced settings [y/N]:n
Service added

Get a login for your service:

$: ilogin
Service: google
suno owqi exar efjt

Now go to > Change password and update your password with the one provided by this script: suno owqi exar efjt

From now on, every time you want to login to google, run ilogin and copy&paste generated password within Password field:

$: ilogin
Service: google
suno owqi exar efjt

You can also auto copy password to clipboard (UNIX and OS X):

$: ilogin copy
Service: google
Password copied to clipboard

You can import and export settings from/to CSV files:

$: ilogin import
CSV Input File Path: example.csv
Import complete

$: ilogin export
CSV Output File Path:output.csv
Export complete
