delete your passwords
Goodbye password managers, hello digital independence.
Spectre is a password app
that has no passwords.
Tried keeping countless passwords safe
in an app, keychain, cloud, vault, backup, or browser?
We did too.
Spectre holds no passwords at all.
When it’s time to log in,
it just calculates your site’s password for you.
Cryptographic passwords are never unavailable,
lost, ransomed, confiscated or stolen.
Is that even possible?
It is now.
Not a password trap
Your identity is safe only when its sole gatekeeper is you and it cannot be held hostage in a cloud account or behind a regulatory wall.
More than ever, online liberty requires breaking dependency on unreliable actors or corporate and state entities.
Sustainable security has no loopholes or caveats. It doesn’t come with terms on use, require backups, or expect blind trust.
Stateless identity management vastly reduces your attack surface, making you immune to loss, confiscation, ransoming, decryption and leaks.
Free means freedom and equality. Free means power to the people. Free means transparent and auditable. Free means available for all.
Open-source, licensed Free Software, Spectre is available gratis, forever.
Your identity, no strings
Sign in to Spectre
Open any Spectre app, anywhere. Zero setup required.
Sign in with your name and personal secret.
Personal secret pro-tip: consider using an absurd word combination.
wild berry yelling,
freshly exhasperated kitten. You try one.
Name a password
Enter your website’s domain name. Spectre already has your password.
Your site’s password derives from your sign-in information.
Think of a calculator;
you + site = password, like
1 + 1 = 2, every time.
Upgrade your account security
First time using Spectre for this site?
Change your old account password into Spectre’s generated password.
From now on, you don’t need to save your password for this site anymore.
Log in securely
From now on, just log in with your site’s Spectre password.
Share your site passwords with friends, if you like.
Under no circumstances tell anyone else your personal secret.
Breaking the rules
Your digital identity belongs to you, first and foremost.
Severing the corporate hold over your digital access demands rethinking how we should secure our online accounts.
Spectre cryptographically insulates your sites from each other.
When online services fail and leak your login, this ensures the damage does not affect your other accounts.
Spectre doesn’t save any passwords: it computes them from your name, on demand. Independence from external control is only possible by eliminating data dependency.
Data loss, destruction, confiscation, and identity ransoming are real threats.
Spectre is completely immune: borrow a friend’s device or reinstall on a fresh new device and recovery is instant — even offline!
An Identity Platform
Spectre doesn’t stop at passwords. Using our algorithm, you can eradicate the privacy invasion that is “security questions” or isolate your identity with cryptographically generated login names.
