How do I…

Start working with PassHub

You do not need to register at PassHub. Your user account is created automatically at your first login.

Scan to sign-in

Login to PassHub on a desktop by scanning the QR code with WWPass Key app on your smartphone.

Touch to sign-in

When opening PassHub in your smartphone browser, just tap the "Login with WWPass" button to sign-in with the local WWPass Key app. Alternatively, you may switch to the QR-code screen to login with different mobile WWPass Key.

NOTE: To use PassHub.net you need to install WWPass Key app.

Get WWPass Key app

  • Get WWPass Key app on AppStore or Google Play
  • Launch the app and follow instructions to personalize your WWPass Key.
    Please write down and remember your WWPass PIN: it cannot be reset
  • We recommend you to follow the Key backup procedure. It is bound to your email address. Please follow the steps to be able to transfer the app to another device if your phone is lost or stolen, or if you upgrade to a new one.

Get Premium Account

PassHub Premium account features increased file storage capacity and a practically unlimited number of login/password records.

To get a Premium account you first create your Free account at PassHub.net. To upgrade to Premium, click the "User" icon n the upper right corner and select "My Account" item. Now click the "Upgrade to Premium" button to get to the Payment page.

Create a new password safe

A password safe is a top-level folder which contains login records, notes, files, and other folders.

Click New Password Safe and enter any safe name you like

Create a new login entry, note, file or folder

To add a new record, click the Add button.

When you're on a mobile device, tap the safe name to get to the safe content and click the Add button. Select "Login entry" in the drop-down menu.

New login entry

Fill the form shown below, where

  • Title - identifies the account entry. It is the only required field in the form.
  • Username/password - the credentials of the account. Use the provided random password generator to get a strong password. Just click Generate.
  • URL - network name or IP address of the resource. URLs that start with "http://" "https://" or "www." are shown as active weblinks
  • Notes - specific notes, instructions, or other messages are safely encrypted and stored with each entry.

Google Authenticator (TOTP, Time-based One-Time Password)

You can add a second factor authenticator (rfc6238) to the login entry. The PassHub will generate a six-digit value automatically for you. The one-time code generation is based on the shared secret (base32 string), which usually can be found close to the QR code on the service provider site, e.g.

In the Login Entry form click Add Google Authenticator secret to open TOTP input field. Enter the shared secret code.

Now the TOTP-code will be shown in the Login view along with time remaining till the code change:

New note

Note is a special type of record to store arbitrary not structured texts. The Note dialog contains only the Title and the Notes fields.

New file

You can store files in PassHub too. These may be sensitive documents you share with clients or partners, SSL certificates used widely in IT infrastructure, and so on. File names and content are encrypted the same way as all the other data in PassHub.

Click the Browse button to select a file, or, on a desktop, just drag the file into the filename filed. Now click the Upload button.

Copy/move entries to another safe or folder

Open a menu of the desired Entry and select Cut or Copy command

Now open a menu of the destination safe or folder. The Paste command becomes active. Select Paste and the entry will be copied or moved to a new location.

Please note, the Paste command is only active for 30 seconds after you click the Cut or Copy.

View in-memory files

Passhub allows you to view sensitive files, while not downloading them to the local disk. PDF files can be displayed on desktop platforms except for Safari browser on Macintosh computers. Image files of types PNG, JPEG, BMP, and GIF can be viewed on any platform and browser. Select In-memory View menu item on the desktop or the corresponding button on a smartphone.

Share my password safe with others

You can share your records by granting other users access to the selected password safe.

When you share a safe, the recipient account is identified by the email address. Hence it is only possible to share safes with users who already have PassHub.net account and provided their email.

You may grant one of the three levels of access rights to a recipient:

  • read-only: the user may only read the safe data
  • editor: the recipient can create, modify or delete safe records
  • owner: full access to the safe, the user may share the safe, revoke access, change user roles and even delete the safe

To share a safe

Click on the safe name and select the "Share" item in the drop-down menu

Insert recipient mail and choose access rights. You may also set the safe name as the recipient sees it. Note that the safe name may be different for each user: if Alice shares the safe with Bob, it would be natural to have the safe named 'Bob' or alike. At the same time, Bob may want to call the safe "Alice."

Note the icon changes for the shared safe. Basically, that is it. Next time the recipient updates the PassHub data, the shared safe will be shown.

Backup and restore my records

Export your records in XML or CSV file and import them later.

Export/Backup

Click the Export link under your password safe list. In the provided dialog, choose one of the two file formats - CSV or XML. For backup/restore purposes, they are equally good. However, if you want to have exported data in human-readable form or put them into an Excel table, use CSV.

Compatibility with KeePass

There are many KeePass flavors, particularly:

  • KeePass 2 - for Windows
  • Keepass2Android - for Android devices
  • KeepassXC - cross-platform application for MAC, Linux, and Windows

Windows and Android versions support an XML format as a primary choice. CSV implementation contains errors and is not recommended. Cross-platform KeePassXC supports CSV only, and this implementation is correct.

SUMMARY: use CSV for KeePassXC and XML for KeePass2/Windows and KeePass2Andoird

Import/Restore

  1. Select Import link under the password safe list
  2. Select mode: Import (puts file data into a newly created single safe) or Restore (merges file data with existing safes)
  3. Select the file you wish to upload

NOTE: Restore mode preserves all the data you have in PassHub, it can only add new records or additional versions of existing records. It never deletes or modifies existing data.

Delete my PassHub account

To delete your account, click on 'User' icon in the upper right corner and choose 'My Account' menu item. Find 'Delete my account' link and follow the information dialogs.
