Frequently Asked Questions
Is Passcal a password manager?
No. Unlike the password managers, Passcal does not store any password on itself, on your computer or on its servers.
I want to use Passcal on another device. What should I do?
You will need to download and install Passcal to that second device and copy your <user name>.pclc file from first to the second device. That's it. Your passwords remain the same.
How can I make a backup of my passwords?
Since the Passcal doesn't store any password, you can not have a backup of your passwords. After installation and first usage, you have to make a backup of your <user name>.pclc file to get the right password results from your keywords.
I cannot login. Passcal giving wrong passwords!
For security reasons there is no built-in password confirmation mechanism in Passcal. That is designed to prevent unauthorized person/virus to use brute-force on your account password. Attackers will never be sure that is the right account password they got in this way.
If you enter wrong inputs as your user password, Passcal will produce different passwords from the same keywords. Be sure that your user password and keyword is correct.
Check your <username>.pclc file if it is the right one.
User passwords and keywords are case sensitive.
Do I need internet connection to use Passcal?
No. You can download and install Passcal with a USB stick on your offline devices. Thus Passcal can be used as additional security layer on cold wallets in offline environments.
Why do I need delay duration in Passcal?
Delay duration is the time given to a user between clicking the "Insert" button to password field.
I forgot my account password/keyword. Can I recover?
No. Since the passwords are not saved in local or in server, you
recover forgotten account passwords or keywords.
