QtPass: Qt GUI for pass


We explored pass, a multi-platform powerful command-line password manager in one of our earlier articles. pass is more or less a standard on Unix systems but the cli may deter users migrating from a different platform from using it. Here’s the good news – pass recently got a QT based GUI front-end, thanks to QtPass.


  • Decrypt DB and show password and other information
  • Edit, add information
