This is the homepage of passwords, a free program to store passwords and additional data in a secure database. Passwords main focus is on quick and easy usage as well as robustness and flexibility in terms of the encryption technique. The encryption method is completely configurable because passwords does not do this itself. Instead the cleartext database is filtered through an external application (e.g. GnuPG) for encryption. Therefore any program that is able to act like a filter can be used.


Passwords has been successfully tested on the following platforms:

  • GNU/Linux
  • Free- and OpenBSD
  • Sun Solaris
  • Mac OS X

Passwords is distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License.



  • Version 0.4 released. Fixed segfault on Solaris. Should now compile on systems that need an additional terminal handling library for readline.


  • Version 0.3 released. Added an interactive mode.


  • Version 0.2 released. Fixed a bug that caused it to always show the first database entry instead of the one requested.


  • First public release of passwords
  • Website launched
