This latest update demonstrates our focus on refining user experience and enhancing collaborative password management.

No longer will you need to create password copies in various vaults — we've introduced shortcuts. With these handy labels, you can easily organize access to passwords from different directories.

The new enhanced settings provide administrators with more control over configurations and user rights, and all changes require approvals, preventing any unintentional actions.

LDAP user management has now become simpler with its cleaner interface and background data updates.

In addition to that, Passwork 6.0 brings new notifications and interface improvements. All these enhancements contribute to a more comfortable user experience while ensuring the security of passwords and sensitive data.


Shortcuts are a new way to share passwords, enhancing collaboration flexibility. There's no need for creating password duplicates in different vaults — instead, create multiple shortcuts in required directories. All changes to original passwords are reflected in shortcuts, keeping your team up to date. Users can view or edit data via shortcuts according to their access rights.

Sending passwords without granting partial access to vaults

Previous versions of Passwork encrypt passwords at the vault level. This type of encryption gives users partial access to vaults even when a single password is shared with them. Now, when users access passwords via their "Inbox" or a shortcut, they receive keys to specific passwords, but not their vaults.

Administrators can clearly see who has vault access rights, and who can only work with specific passwords.

The LDAP interface is now cleaner and more intuitive, with a reimagined user management logic. Adding new LDAP users is simpler and safer, especially with the client-side encryption enabled.

Previously, admins had to add an employee and provide a master password. Now, users set their master passwords upon the first login, and admins confirm them afterwards.

The "Users" tab shows registered users, and there is a separate window for adding new ones. LDAP user data updates take place  in the background, allowing admins to navigate elsewhere without waiting for data refresh.

Passwork now provides more detailed security group information. The groups that are linked to roles are marked with special tags, and the groups which were not loaded from LDAP during the last update are marked as "Deleted", alerting admins to adjust the search settings or remove such groups. Also, you can now see the members of each security group.

Improved settings

We've redesigned all settings sections for a unified visual style and enhanced functionality, reimagined the logics of some settings.

Rights for links, tags, and password sharing. Previously, these settings were applied individually to each user. Now, they are applied to everyone with a certain level of vault access. For example, anyone with the “Edit” access rights or higher can create hyperlinks to passwords. These parameters are located in the system settings under the “Global” tab.

Change confirmation. We've added “Save” and “Cancel changes” buttons in system settings. Now, any changes to settings must be confirmed — this helps to prevent accidental actions.

Custom auto-logout time. Users can now set these parameters individually, and admins specify the maximum inactivity time period before automatic logout.

Language selection. In the new version of Passwork, admins can allow employees to choose their interface language.

Interface enhancements

Improved drag and drop. Now, when dragging and dropping passwords and folders into desired directories, Passwork displays selectable actions — move, copy, or create a shortcut.

Other improvements

Separate windows for access to the safe and additional access. Vault access info is now split into two easy-to-read windows. One window shows users who has access to a specific vault, and the other displays alternative ways passwords from this vault can be accessed — shortcuts, hyperlinks, or shared passwords.

Redesigned password action buttons. On the password panel, we've added the "Edit" button and grouped together all actions for additional password access via shortcuts, links, or direct user sharing.

Additional fields for password import and export. Passwork 6.0 supports the use of custom fields, that means you can transfer not only login and password but also additional information stored within password cards.

New notifications. Administrators will receive notifications about new unconfirmed users, and employees will be notified of new passwords in the "Incoming" section.

Introducing Passwork 6.0

Nov 23, 2022 — 1 min read

In the new version of Passwork, we have completely redesigned the System settings. They are now divided into three sections:

  1. Global — organization settings that determine the operations of most of the Passwork functions
  2. Default — the values of the settings that will be used if no other custom settings are specified
  3. Custom — settings that can be set for individual users and roles

Now you can set up different interface languages, configure authorization methods, and enable mandatory two-factor authentication for individual users and roles.

To do this, click "Create a new settings group" in Сustom settings, add users or roles and select your desired settings. The newly created group will be added to the top of the list and will get the highest priority.

The following settings are now available:

  • Ability to create organization vaults and private vaults
  • Ability to create links to passwords
  • Mandatory 2FA
  • Time of automatic logout when inactive
  • Authorization method (by local password, LDAP password or SSO)
  • API usage
  • Interface language

We're already working to add new settings.

Running tasks in the background

A new mechanism for handling tasks allows you to run them in the background. For example, you can run an LDAP synchronization task and still work in Passwork. Your synchronization task will run in the background.

You can see scheduled and completed tasks on the “Tasks” page. Here you can also find the configuration instructions for your operating system.

Display a favicon in the password list

The Passwork interface has become even more user friendly and convenient. If a password has a URL, a website icon will be displayed next to its name.

Automatic favicon loading can be set up by administrators on the “Company settings” page. In this case background tasks should be set up.

Other changes:

  • Automatic session termination in the mobile app and Passwork extension when API key is changed
  • Removed white background in the dark theme when loading pages
  • Fixed bug displaying the results of an outdated search query
  • Improved validation of TOTP keys
  • Fixed empty messages in Syslog
  • Added login validation with UTF-8 encoding
  • Added automatic LDAP host swap :\\ → ://
  • Fixed errors in LDAP code related to the migration to PHP 8
  • Redesigned login and registration forms

Introducing Passwork 5.1

Jun 15, 2022 — 3 min read

Migration to PHP 8

The new version of Passwork now runs on PHP 8. Previous versions of PHP are no longer supported.

New access rights window

The window with access settings for vaults and folders has been completely redesigned. All users and roles having access to a vault or folder are now collected here as well as links and sent passwords.

The rights can now be edited on each tab by selecting multiple objects at once. All modified and deleted objects are marked by an indicator until you save changes. Search filters allow you to display all objects with a certain access right.

Ability to quickly view who accessed vaults and folders

When hovering over an icon next to the name of a vault or folder you can see some brief information about the number of users, roles, links and sent passwords.

Clicking on a list opens up the window for access rights management inside a given vault or folder.

Granting access to individual passwords without adding users to a vault

In previous versions of Passwork, it was possible to send a password copy to users. In the new version, users will see the original password in the Inbox, which will be updated when the original vault changes.

That means you can now give access directly to a password without adding users to a vault or folder.

You can send a password and enable users to edit it, then when a user changes this password, it will be updated for you as well.

Ability to add TOTP keys and then generate 2FA codes

When adding and editing a password, you can add a TOTP field and enter a secret code to generate 2FA codes. The generated code is updated every 30 seconds.

The "Password" field is now optional, so you can keep 2FA codes separate from main passwords.

Adding TOTP keys and generating 2FA codes is available in the web version, browser extension, and mobile app.

Failed login attempts are now displayed in the action history

The action history displays all failed user authorization attempts. This allows you to better track unauthorized access attempts and the actions of blocked users.

You can see all failed login attempts on the Activity Log page by enabling a filter in the Action column.

Ability to enable priority authorization using SSO

The new version of Passwork now allows you to enable SSO priority authorization for all users. You can enable it in the "SSO settings" section.

With this option enabled, only the "Sign in via SSO" button is displayed on the authorization page, the login and password fields appear only when switching to the standard authorization.

Optimized work with a large number of users

Passwork has been tested and optimized for 20,000+ users.

Improved LDAP integration

  • Test mode for LDAP roles and groups linking
  • Saving LDAP logs to a CSV file
  • Updating user attributes during synchronization with LDAP directory

Mobile app update
