If you are familiar with the concept of a password manager, you know that a master password to remember allows you to lock all of your passwords.

But in some specific cases, you may not want to “store” a password. And no way to hold it back. Fortunately there are solutions like Spectre.

Similar in its operation to Lesspass , Specter is an algorithm that uses a name and a secret (passphrase, etc.) and the name of a site to generate a password.

Then, to find this password, you will have to enter the same data (name, secret, site). The tool stores nothing, asks for no personal data, sends nothing over the Internet, does not require a backup and is completely open source / free. Thus, no possible leak of your passwords, and no risk that the “password manager” service falls as could be the case with a Lastpass or other.

Here’s how it works:

You can use it for testing through the Specter site, but if you really want to use it for real, I recommend the clients available for macOS, Windows, Linux, Android, and iOS.
