Proton, known for its secure mail and calendar, has announced the launch of Proton Pass, an end-to-end encrypted password manager to rival 1Password, NordPass, and others.

Today, we're happy to announce another significant milestone in the growth of the Proton ecosystem with the launch of the Proton Pass beta for Lifetime and Visionary users. Invites will roll out over the next week, and you'll receive an email from us at your Proton Mail email address when you're eligible.

The company says its partnership with SimpleLogin has made it feasible to create a password manager without impacting its other services.

We're launching Proton Pass now for two primary reasons. First, joining with SimpleLogin increased our ability to develop a new password manager without impacting efforts on other Proton services. Second, passwords are such sensitive information that an insecure password manager is a risk to the Proton community. If an attacker obtains your password (be it through a data breach or hacking your password manager), they can essentially bypass all of Proton Mail's advanced encryption. Protecting your passwords properly requires a high level of competence with encryption and security, which few organizations have. We've always been worried about the risk posed by a major password manager breach, which unfortunately became a reality with the recent hack of LastPass(new window).

Proton says that other password managers only encrypt the password field, but it uses end-to-end encryption on all fields (including the username, web address, and more). Proton Pass uses a strong bcrypt password hashing implementation and a hardened implementation of Secure Remote Password (SRP) for authentication. Proton Pass is also one of the first password managers to include a fully integrated two-factor authenticator (2FA) and supports 2FA autofill.

Proton Pass will be open source and publicly auditable upon launch. The beta is available on iPhone/iPad, Android, and desktop (browser extensions are available for Brave and Chrome).
