Love thy neighbor: share.

Everyone has got a creed in life, mine is “Share whatever you can spare.”

That may sound a little odd for someone launching a project like PassPack where data secrecy is of the utmost importance. But look again: Share what you can spare.

So, since PassPack is obviously not about sharing data, what is it that we like sharing?

And who does PassPack share with?

Our neighbors: security experts, the “competion”, developers. Whoever is interested in collaborating. Some examples:
