Take it anywhere
EveryPass is a self contained HTML file so you can take it anywhere. Save it to your hard drive, USB stick, Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox or even store it on your phone. You own the data so you keep it and accesses it however is convenient for you! The software and your data all reside in the single HTML file.
EveryPass makes use of the following open source projects:
EveryPass uses your browser as the execution environment, the same browser you most likely use to access your online bank accounts. With EveryPass, your data is not saved onto a server on the Internet; it’s saved to the device you are using. Once saved locally, you can transfer the file to your other devices.
There are no “back doors” to your content in EveryPass once it is encrypted. This means that if you lose your main password, your data can not be recovered.
EveryPass, like other security applications, has known weak points. It is important that you understand these so that you can make an educated choice on whether EveryPass meets your security requirements.
- The browser you use could be susceptible to side channel attacks or could leak information through a design fault, nevertheless Internet banking relies on the very same browser to protect access to your money. Similar problems are also found in other runtime environments and establishing a 100% trusted environment is nearly impossible on modern day devices, especially when you are connected to the Internet.
The checksums are provided to help verify the authenticity of new copies of EveryPass downloaded. When you download EveryPass directly from Consunet, it is served over a secure HTTPS connection. This means that you do not have to perform further authenticity checks, however when you download from a third party, you should verify that the files have not been modified by using the signatures provided.
The checksums provided are MD5 and SHA256. To calculate a checksum of your EveryPass copy, use one of the following applications for your operating system.
- linux terminal> md5sum EveryPass.html
- linux terminal> sha256sum EveryPass.html
- osx terminal> md5 EveryPass.html
- osx terminal> shasum -a 256 EveryPass.html
- windows: install Microsoft’s PsFCIV tool
Once you start using EveryPass, the original signatures will no longer match since you add your data to the file, you can however use our Validator service to check files you are unsure about. If you do not want to send your encrypted data to our Validator service, you should make use of the import function from a trusted copy of EveryPass. This retrieves only the encrypted data from an untrusted copy of EveryPass and validates it using the AES 256 encryption.

Ailin and Bryce are a couple living in the digital age. They have a joint bank account but they each have their own credit cards and a collection of loyalty cards. They use a variety of online services such as Internet banking, Paypal, Ebay, Gumtree, Amazon and subscribe to a number of online shopping sites. Over time they have a amassed a large collection of accounts and passwords, some of which they jointly use. They also use a range of different devices, Bryce has a PC and a HTC one phone while Ailin has a MacBook Air and an iPhone, they also use an Internet capable large screen TV.
Managing their password collection has become complex and as they are aware of the risks associated with identity theft they are unwilling to store passwords in an unencrypted form. Consunet’s EveryPass offers a solution. EveryPass is a simple HTML file that can encrypt itself. Ailin and Bryce each get a copy of the EveryPass file for the private passwords and create a third copy for their joint passwords and PIN’s. They choose a shared location to store the “joint” EveryPass file, perhaps Microsoft’s OneDrive or DropBox so they can access it from their mobile devices. They also decide that this is a pretty good for their private EveryPass files as well. They can now access any of their passwords and PIN’s from any of their devices at any time. They don’t need to install any software or apps on their existing Internet enabled devices to access EveryPass and it also works when they travel without access to the Internet.

Ellis works in a corporate workplace that has very strict IT rules. Ellis can not install any software, access social media sites or use a private smart phone during work hours. Ellis finds it difficult to manage private passwords such as those needed for infrequent Internet banking when at work.
Ellis creates an EveryPass file containing the required passwords and emails this file to the work email address. Since EveryPass is a HTML file and only contains text it passes through the restrictive email gateway and is then verified using the Validator service. Ellis can now access the passwords at work since the workstations have a web browser installed.
