Store and read passwords or other sensitive data. All data is GPG-encrypted, and managed with a Git repository. More information:

  • Initialize (or re-encrypt) the storage using one or more GPG IDs:

pass init {{gpg_id_1}} {{gpg_id_2}}

  • Save a new password and additional information (press Ctrl + D on a new line to complete):

pass insert --multiline {{path/to/data}}

  • Edit an entry:

pass edit {{path/to/data}}

  • Copy a password (first line of the data file) to the clipboard:

pass -c {{path/to/data}}

  • List the whole store tree:


  • Generate a new random password with a given length, and copy it to the clipboard:

pass generate -c {{path/to/data}} {{num}}

  • Initialize a new Git repository (any changes done by pass will be committed automatically):

pass git init

  • Run a Git command on behalf of the password storage:

pass git {{command}}
