oPass Personal

iPhone Password Manager

​​​​​Is there an Android version of the app?

No. Because of the way the app uses the iPhone’s security features, an Android version that provides similar security is not possible.

Can I backup my passwords and account information?
Yes. You can backup your passwords and account information using the standard backup solutions provided by Apple. Apple has gone to great lengths to provide secure backups for its customers. You can use your computer or iCloud to backup your iPhone.

As with many iPhone applications, to transfer passwords to a new phone you need to take extra steps:

  • If you use your computer to backup your iPhone, you must select the option to encrypt the backup when you make a backup.
  • If you use iCloud to backup your iPhone, you must enable iCloud Keychain on your phone. Also, you must enable "Allow iCloud Keychain" in the app's settings

For information about backing up your iPhone, see https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT203977.​

Are my passwords protected in backups?
Yes. oPass uses a security feature of the iPhone called the "keychain" to protect your passwords in backups. 

The protection provided to your passwords in backups depends on the backup method you use:

  • Unencrypted to your computer - Passwords are protected by your  iPhone's UID (device unique identifier). Passwords cannot be restored to a new phone.
  • Encrypted to your computer - Passwords are protected with your iPhone's backup password. Passwords can be restored to a new phone.
  • iCloud without iCloud Keychain - Passwords are protected by your iPhone's UID (device unique identifier). Passwords cannot be restored to a new phone.
  • iCloud with iCloud Keychain - Passwords are protected by your iCloud Security Code. Passwords can be restored to a new phone.

Other account information - usernames, categories, web site addresses, notes, documents, etc., will transfer to a new phone regardless of the backup method used. 

For maximum protection, your iPhone backup password or iCloud Security Code should be a long, random sequence of characters - at least 32 characters in length and consisting of a combination of uppercase, lowercase, and numeric characters. You rarely need to use your iPhone backup password or iCloud Security Code, so having a long backup password/code should not be inconvenient. You can also use a long phrase which only you know and no one can guess.

What should I do to protect my passwords and account information?

Phone Settings

  • Set a passcode for your phone (using the iPhone's Settings app). This is necessary to make the security features used by the app work on your iPhone.
  • Lock your phone when you are not using it. You can do this by pressing the phone’s "Wake/Sleep" button.
  • Set the phone to Autolock (Settings > General).
  • Keep your iPhone updated to the most current version of iOS.

oPass Settings

  • Enable App Lock. This protects your passwords and account information if you let a friend use your phone (for example, while driving).
  • Lock the app after using the app (it will lock automatically after 5 minutes in the background).

Password Selection

Using good passwords is critical for protecting the accounts you care most about (these could be financial accounts, social media accounts, etc). oPass make it easy to use good passwords . You can use the password generator in oPass to create strong passwords.

  • Use a different password for each account - do not use the same password for more than one account.
  • Use random passwords (random means there is no pattern).
  • Use passwords at least 12 characters in length.
  • Use passwords with characters from at least 3 character classes (uppercase, lowercase, numbers).
