Clipperz Password Manager

Why an open source version of Clipperz?

Because we want to enable as many people as possible to play with our code. So that you can start trusting it. The code, not its developers.

In order to allow you not just to inspect the Clipperz code, but also analyze the traffic it generates between client and server, we had to provide an easy way to locally deploy the whole web application.

Feel free to host on your machine a web service identical to Clipperz online password manager. You can choose among multiple backends (PHP/MySQL, Python/AppEngine, …) or you can contribute your own. Whatever is your motivation, we would love to hear from you: get in contact!

The full repository of Clipperz Password Manager, along with instructions for building and installing, is available from GitHub.


Please note that the open source version of Clipperz Password Manager may not be suitable for mass deployments, depending on how robust is the backend you select. As an example, the current PHP backend lacks several critical capabilities such as bot protection and concurrent sessions management.
