Proton Pass brings secure and private password management to all devices

Proton Pass brings secure and private password management to all devices

Today, we’re excited to announce the launch of the Proton Pass macOS app and the Proton Pass Linux app. One of the most popular requests from the Proton community was a standalone desktop app, which is now available on every major platform — Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS and iPadOS, and Chrome OS (via our Android app). 

As a companion to the Proton Pass macOS app, we’re also pleased to announce the standalone native Safari browser extension. This extension offers enhanced convenience and security for everyone that uses macOS’s default browser. Unlike Safari’s default password manager, Proton Pass allows you to sync your logins across multiple different browsers and devices, ensuring consistent access across all platforms.

The Linux version of Proton Pass supports all Debian and RedHat-based distributions, including Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, and CentOS. All Proton Pass apps and browser extensions are available to everyone, and you can use our apps in offline mode with a paid plan.

Proton Pass app features

Offline mode with enhanced Argon2-based security

Unlike many standalone password apps, Pass allows anyone with a paid Proton Pass plan to access their passwords and other Pass items offline. Passwords are stored locally and secured with the  Argon2(new window) password-hashing algorithm, known for its robust defense against brute-force attacks. 

Passwordless unlock

Proton Pass will soon offer TouchID(new window) on macOS, allowing you to unlock your accounts using your fingerprints.

Similarly, an upcoming update for Linux will integrate with the system’s authentication mechanisms and APIs. This means you can unlock Pass with your Linux user account, fingerprint sensors, or any other method supported by Linux Pluggable Authentication Modules(new window) (Linux PAM), a suite of libraries built into many Linux distributions that allows you to securely and conveniently verify your identity. 

These features will be provided as an automatic update in the coming weeks.

Proton Pass is a fully-featured password solution

With Proton Pass apps and browser extensions, you can access Pass’s growing range of advanced password management features. These include:
