Encryptr is a zero-knowledge, cloud-based e-wallet / password manager powered by Crypton.
It started as an example project for seeing what Crypton could do in a Apache Cordova mobile app. I had a particular itch to scratch. I got tired of trying to remember my work password. It changes fairly often, is slightly complex and is generated – I can't choose it for myself.
I had tried a few password managers but hadn't loved any of them – particularly on Android. So, when I needed an idea of an app to make to try out Crypton, this seemed like an obvious choice. At its simplest, Crypton is basically a cloud based key/value store using end to end zero-knowledge encryption. None of the data stored on the server can be viewed by the server.
I wanted something to store hard to remember passwords, important numbers, etc across devices.
Encryptr keeps it simple. It has three types of data it can store. Passwords, Credit Card numbers and general key/value pairs. It can easily be expanded to include other default entry types.
It is currently working on Android, and the Desktop – thanks toNW.js – but there are no reasons why it could not by expanded to Blackberry10 and Windows Phone 8.
iOS is coming soon, just waiting on a way to either make it work with the new WKWebview or to push some of the hard crypto to native.
