Passpack is an application for storing passwords on a master list online. Different levels of user will have different uses for the application. Individuals will store personal passwords; web workers may organize client passwords in lists for easy management and organization. IT Departments can use the app to share passwords and codes with others in the department who require the information. Small businesses may use the app to share password information with individuals or departments.
Passpack was founded by Francesco Sullo and Tara Kelly in December 2006. They created it to address the issue of managing many online account passwords.
The app is designed to provide secure password storage for individuals and small businesses. It has a range of plans to appeal to any user.
The home screen initially provides video instructions for using Passpack effectively. The videos are clear and concise, providing easy to follow instructions for using various features.
Users will benefit from watching the videos before using the application. It clearly shows how to perform the basic functions of the app. The interface is clean and easy to use. Users can also add tags to entries for sorting and searching purposes.
Passpack allows users to Auto-login to sites with passwords stored in the application. In settings, users can set preferences for setting sign ins through a toolbar icon.
Overall, the app is quite easy to use and has plenty of functionality. The Passpack Desktop allows users access to the data without Internet connection, and utilities and portability tools assist with backing up and suggesting passwords. Passpack is also available on mobile devices via web app.
Users choose an ID, password, and email address. Next, users create a “Packing Key” which is a secret sentence. The packing key is critical and the site will not retrieve it, so members MUST remember it.
