Automation Series - Article 3: A Simple Personal Password Manager with Encryption

December 15, 2019   

Below is the code for a simple password manager for personal use with encryption for those who want to store all your passwords hassle free, without spending a penny. This is just 1.0 version of this task. Version 2.0 in under development and the strategy will be almost completely different from this one. This is just a beginning.

Details of the Development Environment

  • Python Version :
Python 3.8.0 (tags/v3.8.0:fa919fd, Oct 14 2019, 19:37:50) [MSC v.1916 64 bit (AMD64)] on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
