No software is forever.
But with our online identity at stake, getting locked out because a product was abandoned or a company dissolved is an unacceptable risk to take. Ask yourself the honest question: how resilient is my password solution to the passage of time?
Spectre sets itself apart in several important ways.
Spectre's stateless model breaks the reliance on save state that you don't control.
More concretely, since Spectre doesn't save your passwords anywhere, you're not dependant on a cloud datacenter you don't own, a database you cannot access or a file format you cannot read.
Spectre's dedication to the Free Software model breaks your reliance on Spectre as an entity.
While Spectre's aim is to revolutionize online identity management and reassert personal control over personal security in a modern online world, we recognize that every good security plan must offer a fully reliable plan B. Spectre's algorithm is fully documented in its white-paper and its application code is open-source and licensed copy-left, ensuring that by law and regardless of what happens to us, the Spectre solution will remain freely available to all of humanity, no matter what happens to this organization.
Print the white-paper and even in post-apocalyptic society, you should be able to find yourself a software engineer capable of cobbling together what you need to recover your Reddit password.
Spectre comes with backup/export formats that are easy to parse, re-use and read.
As more of your online accounts get secured with Spectre's generated passkeys, you may want to keep a hard-copy of the various accounts you've got access to along with their passwords. They make for a great fallback asset in case you don't have a Spectre app around to compute the password you need and also give you the confidence that should you ever wish to migrate away from Spectre, back to a vault-based solution, importing your existing Spectre passwords is always on the table.
