What is the difference between Passwords, Access Keys and Activation Keys?

Passwords are used to encrypt or hide files.

If you have many passwords, you can store all of them in a list, open with one “master password”. That master password is called Access Key (to a list of passwords).

Activation Keys are useful only to those that want to develop their own encryption algorithms or new carriers. It’s an internal security system of east-tec InvisibleSecrets.

The Password Manager

With east-tec InvisibleSecrets, you can store passwords in encrypted password lists. The Password Lists are useful because you don’t have to remember all the passwords you are using, only one access key to open the password list. For each password you provide a description and some additional information (and, of course, the password). When you select a description from the list, the edit boxes from the main window which require the input of a password will be filled with the selected password.

east-tec InvisibleSecrets creates a default password list called “My Passwords”. When you run east-tec InvisibleSecrets for the first time, you will have to enter an access key for this default password list.

To use the Password Manager follow these steps:

  • Press the Passwords button from the main page.
  • Select List

To open an existing list:

  • Select a passwords list. The first time you run east-tec InvisibleSecrets you have to enter an access key for the default password list.
  • Enter the access key corresponding to the selected password list

If you want to perform other actions click the corresponding links:

  • Create new passwords listWhen you create a new Password List, you have to enter an access key too. Therefore, for each Password List you can have an unique access key.
