link to recent new alternative-to-password-safe tool?
November 20, 2016 7:50 AM   Subscribe

Google-fu fail. I'm looking for this new open-source sw tool I saw the other day that avoids creating a database, instead computing your needed passwords on the fly based on your username and the web site info in particular. I think.

Does anyone remember what the heck this thing is called or where I can find it? (Again, this is not lastpass or keepass, since those are programs that created little databases of your passwords).

Thx mefiters! : )

That sounds like PasswordMaker. See the sidebar there for extensions for basically every browser under the sun.

Thanks dorque. It does sound like PasswordMaker, but it's not that one.

Ah, I finally remembered it. It's this one - LessPass

that's interesting, but this thread on hn raises some issues (i went looking because i, too, was surprised by the low number of pbkdf iterations).
