Are you using the same password everywhere? Or do you just change it a little bit from service to service? Then The Simple Password Manager is made for you.
Using the same password on many services is really dangerous. It means that if one of your accounts gets compromised, malicous people will be able to get access to all your other accounts. If you think that security breaches are rare, or concern only small services, just have a look at this list.
Using the The Simple Password Manager you'll be able to generate strong passwords very easily, without using a full featured password manager software.
Think about a personal and easy to remember sentence that you can decline for all your passwords.
For example (do NOT use these!):
"My great password for Github"
"My great password for Google"
Type this in the passphrase field above and voilà! Your password is generated. The next time that you require one of your passwords, just re-type the same passphrase, it will give you the same password.
Try to figure out a passphrase that is not easy to guess! For example you can use lowercase, uppercase and special characters, slang or words you made up. Using another language than english is a good idea too!
If someone gets your passphrase, he could easily figure out all of your passwords.
If one of the services you are using gets hacked (which happens regularly) and your password is stolen, or if employees get access to your password, it would be easy to guess your other passwords from your passphrase. Using The simple password manager guarantees that it's impossible to guess anything from one of your passwords.
No. In fact, nothing is sent to the web, everything happens locally in your browser. This is really easy for you to monitor using the developer console of your browser, and checking that no network connection happens when you type your passphrase.
It's true that if a malicious hacker succeeded in hacking our server, he could change the script
to make it send the passphrases somewhere.
To prevent that, we are regularly monitoring our server. We also encourage all the users of the service to check that no network connection happens when they type a passphrase. This is really easy to see using the developer console of your browser.
The "recipe" that transforms your passphrase into a password is not a secret, and is actually quite simple.

In fact, any geek could clone the repository and start a copy of this service in a few minutes.
