If you would prefer to keep your passwords off-line rather than using one of the multitude of online password storage services available. You might be interested in a new open source piece of hardware called the Mooltipass.
The Mooltipass has been designed to provide users with a password storage device that supports all platforms and computer hardware, including mobile devices and can be converted to use Arduino shields if desired. Watch the video created by its designers to learn more about the Mooltipass offline password storage solution.
The Mooltipass offline password storage system can be plugged into your computer, tablet or smartphone without the need for any extra drivers and is activated using a PIN code and will automatically enter your details when required as you visit a website. The Mooltipass project is currently over on the Indiegogo crowd funding website looking to raise $109,112 pledges to make the jump from concept to production. Its creators explain a little more :
“Logins and passwords are critical elements we need to remember to access the different websites and services we use daily. To achieve good security, each of these credential sets should be unique and passwords should be long and complex. But remembering many long complex credentials is hard.
We therefore created the Mooltipass, a physical encrypted password keeper that remembers your credentials so you don’t have to. With this device, you can generate and safely store long and complex passwords unique to each website you use. A personal PIN-locked smartcard allows the decryption of your credentials and ensures that only you have access to them. Simply visit a website and the device will ask for your confirmation to enter your credentials when login is required.”
If you think the open source Mooltipass offline password storage hardware is something your life could benefit from, visit the Indiegogo website now to make a pledge and help Mooltipass become a reality and be one of the very first to own one via the link below.
