auth-source-pass (aka. auth-password-store)
The auth-source-pass package, formerly known as auth-password-store,
integrates Emacs' auth-source library with password-store. The
library is a way for Emacs to answer the old burning question “What
are my user name and password?”.
Password-store (or just
pass) is a
standard unix password manager following the Unix philosophy.
The auth-source-pass project is a password-store backend for auth-source.
This package has been included in Emacs 26. If that suits you, you can just start using it. Otherwise, install it from melpa.
Regardless of the version you choose, please report issues to auth-password-store's issue tracker. Please make sure to specify which version you use.
Add the following to your

auth-source-pass follows the first approach suggested by the Password-store project itself for data organization to find data. This means that the filename of the file containing the password for a user on a particular host must contain the hostname. The file itself must contain the password on the first line. Additional fields can be on subsequent lines. For example:
passwdstring host: host.domain.com user: email@example.com port: 993
If you have several accounts for the same host, you can name your files in 2 different ways:
If you use several ports (sometimes called services) in the same
host (e.g., web and mail), you can add a colon and the port number (or
service name) at the end of the filename: e.g.,
The separator string (default: colon) between host and port number
can be customized by
Be aware that the .gpg extension is added automatically by the
utility. You should not include that in the name when you create the
entry. For example to create a multi-line entry with
pass insert -m user1@host
