Developer teams often require sharing passwords, login keys and credentials among team members. As the project progresses, it is difficult to keep track of these important data.
A collaborative solution is required, to save a huge deal of time and effort managing these keys and passwords.
So, here comes a Passbolt.

Community edition VS business and enterprise editions.
The difference between community open-source edition and enterprise and business pro editions is pretty slim. The community edition is more than enough for small teams, small companies and communities.
However, enterprise and business users can benefit from extended services like support, desktop integration, custom development features (e.g. custom fields), auditing, folder management, multifactor authentication and more.

Passbolt is released under AGPL V3.
