Password Keeper

Password Keeper is a web app that helps manage and store account passwords in the cloud. The data is secured with symmetric encryption and a password of the user's choice. The project is developed in React, Google Cloud Functions, and the Firestore database. It is open source and can be hosted entirely for free on Google Cloud.


It is a mobile application for sending encrypted messages between two parties developed in React Native and Google Cloud Functions. It uses end-to-end encryption and supports real-time messaging. This project stands out because it is completely open source, and anyone can make their build and self-host it.

I made a 2.0 version of this app with a complete redesign. The back end is built with Node.js and MongoDB to give the possibility of hosting it on a server, removing the need to use cloud solutions like Google Functions or AWS Lambda.

NPM Repositories

Working with different projects, I decided to facilitate some of the work by creating the following libraries:
• React Native Expo Tweet NaCl is a modified version of TweetNaCl.js, which works with React Native Expo. It supports basic cryptography functionalities.
• Cloudflare Workers REST API is a module for building REST API with Cloudflare Workers. I created this module with the Express.js framework in mind, making the functionality as close as possible to that.
