Pass what? Simply the coolest, most secure place to store the thousands of passwords you generate per day: PassPack. Currently in a stable beta v4, they opened up their beta v5 on Wednesday and within a few hours they closed the doors. But that doesn’t mean you can’t take full advantage of the their service today–for free.
PassPack claims to be the first “Online Privacy Manager.” That’s certainly the first time we’ve come across that phrase. The key to their security measures is in their name. Your information is encrypted within a “pack” using government-grade AES encryption. To access your account you sign on, and then to access your information, you must “unpack” the data with a predetermined pass-phrase of your choosing. There are more security features than your average software password program understands.
So, this isn’t “one password to rule them all” — it’s more like, “one password, a p ass phrase, and Government encryption to rule them all.” Another killer feature is that they give you a “disposable login” that works only once and then expires. This allows you to login from an insecure location and not worry about it. And that’s just version 4. Version 5 promises much more.
Enjoy your Friday and happy password keeping!
