Storing and Sharing Passwords with Stache

UT provides Stache to all faculty and staff as a way to securely store and access passwords, encryption keys, and personal identification numbers.

  1. Go to
  2. Log in with your EID and password
  3. Select "new entry"
  4. In the "nickname" field, enter a name that will remind you of the information you are storing. This field is not encrypted, so do not put any sensitive information, such as your password, here.
  5. The next three fields, "purpose", "secret", and "memo" are all encrypted, so you can put sensitive data in these fields (you'll note that they have a lock next to them to remind you of this). You do not have to use all fields.
  6. Enter any username and password information, as well as any login details that you want to remember.
  7. If you want to share a password with another faculty or staff member (you should not do this with your EID password or iSchool account password), enter their EID in the "Share with..." field.
  8. You can use the "add tags" field if you want to later search by category, but this is not necessary. This field is not encrypted.
  9. Save the entry.
  10. You will be taken back to your main Stache site, where you can see all of your entries. Entries that you've created are blue, while entries that have been shared to you are green.
