vPass is a smart web-based generator of secure passwords.
- You really should have different passwords for web sites.
- Remembering unique password for each web site is impossible.
- Password managers are usually restricted to one platform.
vPass takes your master password (f.e.
my_password) and, optionally, current domain (f.e.
http://accounts.google.com converts into
0EQu$MwEm?Qt). Watch 30 seconds video demo.
Now you can create unique secure password for any website, and you only have to remember one master password.

Why use vPass, not LastPass/KeePass/1Password/RoboForm/etc?
I tried them all, honestly. LastPass was the best, but still far from perfect. vPass is not perfect too - it reflects my vision. I encourage you to give it a try.

How safe is vPass?
It's as safe as your master password. And because vPass is not so popular, no one will guess you use it.

What happens if vPass.info is down?
Нou should save a local copy of vPass right now, just in case. As for the server, there are no access logs, and as I mentioned, no data is transmitted from you.
vPass has been inspired by SuperGenPass.
For users who need to keep using vPass v.1, it's here - https://www.vpass.info/1/. I recommend switching to v.2 although it means changing all your password (which is actually a good idea from time to time). The v.1 generator did not validate for including most required types of characters (lowercase, uppercase, digits, special), which caused problems on some sites.
