Maybe this is not the best place to discuss this, but is it possible
to put your private key into a qr code? This could make pass tool
friendly across devices.
I was thinking to put all my encrypted
passwords in a public github repo and be able to access to my
passwords from any device passing my private key from a qr code and then putting
my password to decrypt the private key.
I would like to hear from security people if this it's viable or is
the worst idea ever.
