As a logged in user I should be able to change my secret key passphrase

Q1. What is the problem that you are trying to solve?
It is not possible at the moment to change the secret key passphrase from the UI.

Q2 - Who is impacted?
Everyone but especially people that use a weak passphrase.

Q3 - Why is it important and/or urgent?
This will help improve security.

Q4 - What is your proposed solution? (optional)
there is a workaround, the bad news is that it’s not very user friendly. What you need to do:

  • Export your private key
  • Import your private key in another Gpg compatible keyring and change the passphrase there
  • Export your updated private key
  • Follow the recover procedure in passbolt load up your private key with the new passphrase.


Q5. Community support
People can vote for this idea to show traction:

  • :ok_woman: Must have: this is critical for me to have this
  • :raising_hand_woman: Should have: this is important for me to have this
  • :tipping_hand_woman: Could have: this could be nice to have
  • :no_good_woman: Won’t have: we should not schedule this (explain why)

Is there update on this feature?
This is quite a basic feature to be missing

Hi @james.bradford, no update at the moment. Our current focus is elsewhere (folders).
