RESTful API Backend server

You can host the backend server on your own (local computer or on a remote server, if you want it to use it on different devices and networks). As an alternative for beginners you can also use our server at (https://nowpass.org). Your passwords, secure notes etc. are encrypted (AES-CBC-256) at your own device and are never submitted in clear text to the REST service.
