Linux servers typically don’t typically install with GUIs, as a command line is faster. But without GUIs, what do you do about passwords?

The solution is pass, a text-based password manager that stores all of your entries in the PGP-encrypted text file, ~/.password-store

This command enables you to add, edit, generate, and retrieve your stored passwords. It even allows you to temporarily add a password to your clipboard and track password changes with git.

Sounds pretty handy, right?

Let Jack Wallen walk you through the process of installing and using pass.

Once you get accustomed to pass, you'll find it to be an excellent option for machines that don't include a GUI but still need a password manager.
