After months of hard work, we’re thrilled to announce another major update: Padloc 3.0! This is the most significant update in quite some time, and we can’t wait to tell you about all the improvements and exciting new features we have in store for you!
Padlock Becomes Padloc
First off, if you’ve been following the projects development, you probably noticed something weird about the title. No, it’s not a typo! Along with the release of version 3.0 we decided to also introduce a minor rebranding. We’ve dropped the “k” from the name making it a little less generic, more memorable and frankly easier to recognize by search engines. Also, we love how it looks in our new logo! 😌
Introducing Organizations And Shared Vaults
Let’s start with the most significant new feature introduced in Padloc 3: Organizations and Shared Vaults. While previous versions of Padloc only supported storing data in your own, private store, Padloc 3 now allows you to create “shared vaults” that can be used to securely share passwords, documents and other items among multiple users! These shared vaults are managed as part of “organizations”, which can represent anything from small teams and families to large companies and institutions. While under the hood this signifies a considerable increase in complexity, we’ve worked hard to retain the same simple and intuitive user experience that our users have come to love in Padloc!
Store And Share Files With Attachments
Storing passwords, credit card numbers and notes is not enough for you? We get it! After all, a lot of sensitive information is stored within pdf documents, Excel tables, photos and all kinds of other files. Well, fret not, we’ve got you covered! Padloc 3 introduces Attachments, a simple and intuitive way to store sensitive documents along with your other data. Just like everything else stored in Padloc, attachments are encrypted and protected by your master password. And best of all, they can be shared with other Padloc users via our new shared vaults feature! Perfect for storing digital copies of important documents, managing RSA keys for your team, or sharing juicy photos with your loved ones (we won’t judge 😉).
New Web Interface
Having an app remember your passwords is useless if you don’t have access to them when you most need them, which is why portability is key in any good password manager. Our cross-platform app has always made it easy to access your data from all your favorite devices, but what about those times when you’re on somebody else’s computer and want to check your email? Or if you’re phone’s battery dies and you desperately need your credit card details? Well, we’ve got good news! With our new web interface, you can now access your data directly from the browser! Simply go to https://padloc.app and log in using your email and master password! Our web interface uses the latest browser technology to protect you when browsing your data and as always, everything is protected by strong end-to-end encryption so nobody (not even us) has a chance to steal your data.
And Much, Much More…
These are only some of the new features included in Padloc 3! Other changes include an improved user interface, a new “favorites” feature and much much more!
Padloc 3 is currently in closed beta, so you’ll have to wait just a little while longer to use it. If you don’t want to wait, you can request beta access now. Or simply sign up to our newsletter to be notified as soon as Padloc 3 is ready for prime time!
