Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

Some web accounts are meant to be shared, whether with co-workers, clients you're providing access to, or for tech support. Passpack (Windows / Linux / Mac) offers a more secure way than emails or Post-It Notes.

You'll need to "invite" people from within Passpack, basically signing them up for service as well. Once you do, however, sharing a login and password to a site, without sending your data over email and leaving it up to someone else's security methods, involves just a few clicks. You set whether you cousin Joe just has access to the password, or whether they can modify it as well. By centralizing a password with Passpack, you can also "push" password/login changes out to everyone logging in using their shared Passpack access, and can revoke access to certain folks or groups all at once.

Passpack is a free service, with upgrades uncapping the number of (full-access) shared users, saved passwords, and other features. Intrigued but wondering about security and privacy? Here are their fairly full disclosures.
