Second Sneak Peek at Passwordstate Version 9

The features, optimization and stability for Passwordstate V9 is coming along a treat. This week’s blog aims to tease you with a couple more features designed to make your Passwordstate related work-life easier.

Settings Search Functionality

The V9 design team has looked at a number of features aimed at making the administration of Passwordstate even easier. One of these relates to finding where a particular setting is located. This is especially useful when trying to remember where the setting is located on one of many tabs under System Settings or Feature Access. This Search feature has been incorporated in the following locations;

Administration->Passwordstate Administration->Feature Access

Administration->Passwordstate Administration->System Settings

Administration->Password Reset Portal Administration->System Settings

The Search Settings input field is located directly above the tabs and any criteria entered is dynamically searched for across all tabs:


In the example below, I’m searching Passwordstate Administration->System Settings for all settings related to “Password Lists”. The drop down list returns all the Tabs and Settings relating to the search criteria,


When you click on one of these entries you’re taken to that tab and the relevant section is highlighted as per the image below.


If this wasn’t the setting you were looking for, simply click back on the Search Settings field as the Search Results are remembered, and choose another result to navigate to that Setting.

SAML Verification Policy for Password Reset Portal

With Passwordstate V9 we’ve introduced SAML as an additional Verification Policy for our Password Reset Portal. SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) has become an increasingly popular choice being an open standard for exchanging authentication and authorization data between the identity provider and the service provider.


As with all Verification Policies, it is used to correctly identify a user prior to allowing them to either reset their password or unlock their Active Directory account.

…and Introducing our Mobile App

Click Studios will also be releasing its first true native app for Android and iOS devices with V9. This has been designed from the ground up, is Secure by Design and is a complimentary offering to our existing Mobile Client.


With Biometrics Support for application access, an offline mode allowing access to an encrypted cache of credentials the user would normally have access to, all with full auditing of access that is synced back to your Passwordstate instance.

We’ve optimized the performance of the App, with access to tens of thousands of passwords almost instantaneously. Users can also manually refresh their encrypted cache whenever they want.

Again, we hope you’re as excited about these features as we are, and as always we welcome your feedback via
