In addition to the fact that Europe and Luxembourg are the leaders in the data privacy / data protection field, we chose Luxembourg to establish Passbolt SA, the one and unique legal entity behind Passbolt, for many good reasons:
Luxembourg is surrounded by France, Germany and Belgium which means that we have access to an incredible pool of talents coming from these neighbouring countries and beyond. We are a remote company by DNA, however being centrally located makes it incredibly easy for our European collaborators to visit us and work from our beautiful office.
Primarily known as a financial hub…
Security is one of the most challenging aspects of building an open-source privacy-focused software like Passbolt. As the adoption grows, so does the pressure to find and fix any security issues. If you have been following the project for a while now you may already know that we have in the past organized code reviews by partnering with framework specialists, security auditors and bug bounty hunters.
As part of our renewed effort to demonstrate our level of commitment to the community, as well as support our current certification efforts, we will be organizing a series of security audits in the…
Want to reduce the number of these pesky Passbolt emails notifications without completely opting-out? Here is something that may interest you. Thanks to your feedback we have been planning to make some changes on how Passbolt s̷p̷a̷m̷ ̷y̷o̷u̷r̷ ̷m̷a̷i̷l̷b̷o̷x̷ sends notifications.
While we were working hard on Folders we have been thinking: what will happen regarding email notifications when someone moves a folder with lots of nested folders and resources inside it?
Well, we got some hints from Quentin:
So, we had to figure a solution. Of course, we did not want to change our entire system, because it works…
Every now and then we receive an email complaining about the fact that passbolt requires an extension to run. Recently we saw an article arguing that having an extension is actually worse from a security and privacy perspective.
It is very important to teach users to exercise caution when installing a new extension. Unfortunately there are still a lot of dubious extensions running in the wild. We are not going to argue about that.
This article will give you a quick overview of this new feature exclusive to Passbolt. But before we dig into the details, here is a sneak peak in video.
Passbolt product vision has always been to combine the ease of use of a personal password manager with the flexibility of collaborative experience. This is one of the reasons support for groups has been added to the product quite early on, and is available for free to all users. Later, tags (labels) were added to help professionals in larger organizations manage passwords using another…
Some of the most expected features of passbolt are categories (also called folders) and tags (also called labels). Since multiple approaches are possible for the design of these features, we wanted to take a step back, share some of our thoughts and discuss the options with you.
Sharing passwords using groups is already possible in passbolt and can help organise the passwords. It is often not enough for small teams or users with a lot of passwords, who often need another way to organise their data.
The major difference between categories and tags is that, in most systems using folders…
Passbolt uses a variety of open source technologies to underpin our software. You can see a full list of these technologies here. One of the technologies we use extensively is CakePHP, which is used to power the server side of the passbolt solution. We recently submitted passbolt for a code review from the brains behind CakePHP, CakeDC.
This review was done…
From all over world, open source enthusiasts endorse passbolt code of conduct and are working together to build a password manager your team will love to use! Everyone’s doing their share. If you too would like to give back there are plenty of options.

Prior to this version, users needed to be added one by one when sharing a password. Because there was no group support functionality, if you were working with a lot of collaborators, the exercise was quite time consuming. We are happy to announce that this new release finally solves this pressing issue.
We are very pleased to see that most of you liked the original design proposal. That already helped save precious time during the implementation and testing.
