How to Install Pashword on Your Synology NAS

How to Install Pashword on Your Synology NAS

Pashword is a hashed password generator that does away with the need to remember passwords. Pashword generates a unique strong password for every single one of your accounts but these passwords aren’t just random like the rest of the 91244 other password generators. They are personalized and constant. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install Pashword on your Synology NAS using Docker. Thanks to @Pepper on the Synology Discord channel for forking Pashword and making the image available on docker hub.
