The App recognizes the data embedded by "Passwords Manager 2D" and it will ask you for the password to decode it.
The App recognize the URL embedded and will ask you to open the website.
The App doesn't recognize the previous protocol and shows the embedded contents.

Q: I've tried everything, and the code won't scan. What's wrong?

We advice you to print out qrcode with less than 300 characters because some camera doesn't have good resolution and the light does not help to decode the image.
You can create qrcode with more than 300 characthers when it is saved as an image into mobile phones or read by scanners.
We suggest you to organize the passwords in groups, one qrcode for group with the same master password.

Here are some things you can try in case scanning doesn't seem to work:

  • Try scanning in better lighting (or turn on the light if your device has one)
  • Make sure the code is not printed on a surface that is overly reflective, and make sure there is good contrast between the light and dark areas of the code
  • Make sure the code isn't overly complex (meaning too many black & white blocks within the code)
  • Make sure the code isn't partially covered, smeared, faded, or damaged
  • Make sure the camera is able to focus clearly on the code (you want sharp edges on the code blocks). Note that your device may not have a camera that can auto-focus (if your device camera does not have auto-focus or the code is printed too small, you may be unable to scan certain codes since the app relies on image clarity to function properly).
  • Try a variety of distances from the code for scanning (it doesn't necessarily need to fill the guide frame / square brackets - it can sometimes read better when appearing smaller on the screen)
  • Make sure you are not trying to scan at an odd angle to the code (the code needs to appear completely square on the screen)
  • If you're scanning a 1D barcode (with vertical lines instead of blocks), you may need to orient the camera so that the barcode is centered in the square brackets - the lines should still be vertical, but they should be perpendicular to an imaginary horizontal line across the middle of the square. In other words, if the code is more wide than tall (or has short lines), make sure the row of lines is the same distance from the top of the square as it is from the bottom.

Passwords Manager 2D Questions

Q: What is Passwords Manager 2D ?

In today's world you need to remember many passwords.
You need a password for your bank account site, your e-mail account, your website's FTP password, online passwords (like website member account), etc. The list is endless.
Also, you should use different passwords for each account.
If you use only one password for your accounts someone could get this password and you will have a problem... The thief would have access to your e-mail account, website, etc.
Passwords Manager 2D is a software which helps you to manage your passwords in a secure way.
You can put all your passwords in barcodes and lock them with a master password, so you only have to remember one single master password to unlock the data. The barcodes are encrypted using the best and most secure encryption algorithms currently known (SHA-512bits).

Q: What can I do if I forget the Master Password?

To avoid this situation you just have to enter the field "Master Password Hint", so everytime you will scan the barcode the app/sofware will suggest you the hint.

You can either download the FREE version (manage up to 3 passwords) or buy the FULL version for € 0.99.

Q: What is the data size limit ?

There are virtually no limits, Passwords Manager 2D avoids the data size limit of the two-dimensional barcode QRCODE® (2700 characters) allowing to organize all the personal data (for example "BANKS","EMAILS","WEB SITE") by groups.
Every group will be enconded into a 2d barcode with the same Master Password and Hint.
