Smart searching

fp uses both password frequency and levenshtein distance distance from search to retrieve the best entry.

For example:

$ fp ls reddit
/tmp/test.db: 5 entries
[email protected]      [activity:003 created:04/03/2017 06:54:31]
[email protected]      [activity:000 created:04/03/2017 06:54:34]
[email protected] [activity:003 created:04/03/2017 06:53:29]
[email protected]  [activity:000 created:04/03/2017 06:53:22]
[email protected]   [activity:000 created:04/03/2017 06:53:37]
$ fp reddit
similar: [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] 
Copied password for [email protected]



The human password generator uses the lists in passgen/world_list/ to generate passwords.

It uses the following format: <Adjective><Adjective><Noun><Noun><random num [000, 1000)>

It generates about 55 bits of entropy.


Hex generates 16 random hex digits.

It generates 64 bits of entropy.


Base62 generates 16 random base62 digits.

It generates 96 bits of entropy.

Password caching

fp caches secrets after an open in /dev/shm/fp-<username>.secret

Recommended Name Format

FastPass imports and recommends the following name format, all lowercase.



Add the following to your ~/.bashrc for autocompletion support

__fp_ls() {
       if (($COMP_CWORD == 1)) {
          COMPREPLY=( $( compgen -W '$(fp --bash ls)' -- $cur ) )
complete -F __fp_ls fp
