The utility itself has no GUI, and is written in Python, so it’s portable and has few dependencies.
Pro Requires little to no storage
Passacre needs only a configuration file to tell it how to hash passwords, what kind of output it should produce, and which sites need specific generation rules. There’s no database where passwords are stored, so it’s not possible to be locked out of everything if that file is lost.
Pro Innovatively use phone's Security Chip to encrypt data
Pro Account templates are terrific
The account templates are so powerful that you can save all your account security information in one record. For your google account, besides the password, you can save OTP, recovery code and email addresses. For Facebook, you can save emergency contacts as well. For Apple ID, the security questions can also be saved.
Pro Turn on 2FA for Apple ID without security question answers
Pro Advanced Phishing Detection
Now, ID Guard Offline (Android) can,
- identify FAKE apps to prevent them from stealing your passwords.
- identify insecure websites served via HTTP connection and warn you against passwords leaking.
- display information requested by Autofill, such as username, password, etc. to prevent malicious websites or apps from stealing your passwords by hiding password boxes. (A malicious website or app might hide the password box to make you mistakenly think that you are not filling password, but actually you are.)
Pro Back up and restore data in a completely offline way
The app also has detailed instructions on how to back up or restore data, which is very nice to new users.
Con Requires knowledge of the command line
