How to Install MYKI Password Manager on Ubuntu

This brief tutorial shows students and new users how to install MYKI Password Manager on Ubuntu 20.04 | 18.04 LTS systems.

MYKI is a cross-platform password manager that helps secure your password locally across multiple devices. Unlike most password managers, MYKI allows you to use your fingerprint, Face ID or a pin code to access the the app without the need to always type your master password.

Whether you’re a single user, member of a team of work for a company, MYKI should work for you.
