This is how the PasswordMaker XML should be formatted.

When listing child tags, the following is used to say how many can be used.

Only one child exists
Only one child exists, but can be left out
At least one child exists, but has no upper limit
The child may be left out, but has no upper limit

Also note, technically the children should be defined in the order they're used (but not really). Also note that in some cases, the order of the children affects the order items are listed in the application.



Child tags

Currently, the following child tags are defined:

  • <accounts> [1]
  • <settings> [0-1]

The following will be defined when an edition needs to support them (and for now, is undocumented):

  • <remotes> [0-1]
  • <domains> [0-1]

<accounts> and it's child <default> are the only require tags.


When the file is encrypted, use this for the key on the HMAC-SHA256 hash
This is used to let the program know if the XML file is encrypted. When it's not set, or is set to 0 or false (must be lower case), then the file is not encrypted.
If it's set to 1 or true, then the contents of the tag is encrypted data stored as base64. AES 256 is used for encryption. The key is a SHA-256 hash of a password provided by the user. If encryption_salt is set, then it's a HMAC-SHA-256 hash, with encryption_salt being the key for the HMAC.


Child tags

  • <default> [1]
  • <group> [0+]
