To use Pagenii offline on your laptop or desktop computer, you can use Pagenii+. It can do everything that Pagenii can do and more: For your convenience, Pagenii+ can store information (names, keys and character sets) about your credentials in a file. This can be handy when managing many passwords with Pagenii and having trouble remembering the names, keys and character sets for each of them. However, this convenience comes at the cost of possibly reduced security, depending on how you store this file.

The file is encrypted
Pagenii+ uses strong, industry-standard encryption: AES with keys of size 256bit. Because of that, you can decrypt the file yourself without using Pagenii+. OpenSSL is available for many operating systems and may already be installed on your computer. You can use OpenSSL from the command line to decrypt your Pagenii+ file:
Pagenii+ can also export a file as plain text. This way you can keep an unencrypted backup copy and even print it on paper. If you open such an unencrypted file with Pagenii+ it will ask you for a file password and immediately encrypt this file. We advise to not store an unencrypted Pagenii+ file in the cloud. Use a strong password for your file and make sure you don't forget it. There is no practical way to decrypt the file without the password.
