Make Passpack.com Faster with Favorites

If you have a very account (with 50 entries or more), you may start to notice that Passpack becomes slow to load right after you sign in. This is because there are many password entries to unpack (decrypt) all at once.

To make Passpack load more quickly, you can set the most used entries as Web Favorites. Then go to Settings > Startup Options and choose one of the following options:

  1. Just unpack my favorites (the ones with stars)
    This will only load your Favorites. To load your other entries, you will need to do so manually.
  2. Just unpack my favorites - then turn on 1 Click Login for my favorites only
    This is similar to option #1, however it will also automatically activate 1 Click Login for you. Only your Favorites will be available for 1 Click Login.
  3. First unpack my favorites - then unpack the rest in the background
    This will load your Favorites first, show them in your list, then continue to load the rest of your entries so that you don't have to do so manually.
  4. First unpack my favorites - then turn on 1 Click Login - then unpack the rest in the background
    This is a combination of option #2 and #3. Your favorites will load first, and 1 Click Login activated for them right away. Then Passpack will continue to load the rest of your entries so that you don't have to do so manually. once that is complete, ALL of your entries will available for 1 Click Login.

Mobile Favorites will be ignore by this option, as they will be automatically loaded by default on mobile devices only (ex. iPhone, Android, etc.).
