100% API-compatible to pass

Every other app will work with the basics of gopass, too. Just jump in with your existing setup!

git by default

We initialize a git repository in your store by default. Additionally we automatically pull and push if you write to the store.

Support for multiple stores

Out of the box we support not only the common default store, but you can add as many other stores, so-called mounts, as you like.

Easier management of recipients

We prompt you to verify the recipients you're about to encrypt for by default, so you can be sure to always target the right people.

Compatible with iOS, Android, Chrome, Firefox apps

Because we're compatible with pass there are other projects out there that you can use to complement gopass on other platforms.

Store binary data

With gopass you can store more than just simple passwords. You are able to store any kind of data as binary to the password store.
