Elsi Inc. was founded in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada in 2017 as a solution to the overwhelming frustration of trying to protect oneself online as more user accounts are rapidly accumulated. As online services struggle to keep themselves from being hacked they continue to add more requirements and restrictions onto users to manage their passwords. The sheer volume of accounts has become all but impossible to properly manage manually or mentally. Elsi decided there had to be a better way to manage passwords securely without having to trust an online password manager, which is susceptible to the same attacks as other online services. So we created Stash!
