key associated to the phone ensures that each user of Magic Key gets a unique version of the password generation algorithm.

= FAQ =

Why should I use Magic Keys?

Magic keys help you create random passwords, eg "h@x27eRt(z&9t0h" that you can easily

remember just by memorising the keys you used to generate the password. A random password

is much harder to crack than a regular word. The generated password cannot be guessed without

knowing your keys. It's easier to remember john.doe, gmail than h@x27eRt(z&9t0h

How does magic keys work?

Magic keys generates a password by mixing all-together the 2 keys you provide and a fixed root key. To ensure people who would

use exactly the 2 same keys would not get the same password, the android ID of the phone is used a fixed root key.

The same password is generated only if some one uses the same 2 keys and the same "root key". Root key

is set by default as the Android Id of the phone but is can be changed in the application settings.

Does inverting key1 and key2 generate different passwords?

No, you will get the same password if you invert key1 and key2

Can someone guess my passwords?

To guess your password someone needs to run magic keys either on your phone and guess

your 2 keys or retrieve your Android ID (or custom root key) and still guess your 2 keys

Are password generated safe and random enough?

Whatever some banks with very short password rules might tell you a password

is safe only if it is long enough, at least more than 12/ 16 characters and is not

a real word or a simple alteration of a real word like 1l0veMyM0m

How will I retrieve my passwords if I change my phone?

If you change your phone you have the possibility to choose a root key that

is not the android ID of your phone. Choosing a custom root key is available in the

advanced settings. this is enabled only in the paid version

I have forgotten a key, can I retrieve my password

Magic keys password are not saved anywhere (neither locally nor on the cloud) so

if you forgot keys, you will have to reset your account password.

Is copying the password in the clipboard safe?

Content copied in the clipboard is accessible to any application so it is not

strictly safe as a malware could monitor the phone clipboard. However all password manager applications

propose this easy way of copy and pasting password.

Shall I use long or short keys for long password?

Even if its name says it is magic, the application cannot beat the entropic laws

of nature. If keys are too short and a very long password is requested,there is a risk another

set of keys will produce the very same password. A good rule of thumb is at least one

of your keys shall be of password requested size.
