256-bit Peace of Mind Across all of your Devices!

We have been using this program for years and have migrated everything from our little password book over to Datavault. My wife will never again forget a password because they are all right here safe and secure on our Mac. Not long ago some of our friends lost everything on their computer during a flood. I was dumbstruck as I tried to imagine bouncing back from that kind of disaster. All of their files and account passwords were boxed up on the floor before the flood, but now they were just runny ink on page after page stuck together from the water and mud. Just imagine if just a few days ago we suffered the same kind of devastation in our lives and that little password book next to the computer was destroyed or even stolen, we would have been devastated from a financial standpoint. However, now thanks to DataVault I am burned that little password book. We can now rest assured knowing that if a flood or some other disaster strikes us everything is being backed up to the cloud. Talk about peace of mind for a few measly bucks. Thanks DataVault! We love that no matter where we are or what device we are connected to DataVault is right there. I keep everything here and Im proud to say that I have hundreds of different passwords and I’m never gonna forget them again.

Can’t survive without this app!

I can’t imagine surviving our password and data driven world without this app, I use it nearly every day either to store or to retrieve data. I use it to store passwords and all sorts of other important data, securely on my laptop or other device, and sync it easily across all of my devices via a secure wifi. Every time I am forced to create a new account of any kind I quickly set up a new entry in DataVault on whatever device I am using at the time - phone or pad - to store the relevant information url, customer service #, account name, password and anything else that may be relevant. Then when I am back on my secure wifi I can quickly sync between all of my devices. For those who prefer to sync via the cloud, that option is also available. Pre-designed templates for various types of data make it easy and each is customizable to add additional fields. And of course the entire data base is searchable. It is invaluable when traveling because I always have secure access to my data since it is stored on my device, not in the cloud, which I believe is one of its best features.

Really great! Would love more icons!. ,

I switched to this from Splash ID, which I had had for years - ever since my Palm Pilotl (a gazillion years ago)! I really like it. It’s got lots of great features and the Sync with my iPhone and comptuer works great! I like the easy way you can customize types and templates. I even like how I can set as a preference the entry. I’m inputting my data by hand (I chose to do this rather than to upload my Splash ID data so that my data is clean), and when I input Frequent Flyer miles or Web Logins, I can set the preference, so that I just hit the plus sign to add an entry and I automatically get the template I want. I would just LOVE more icons! The icons don’t match with what I would assume would be the most common icons needed - like a hotel for hotel rewards programs or the icons for companies like AAA, Hertz, American Airlines, Apple, etc. But other than that (and that’s very minor) I like this. I hope it’s around for years, because Splash ID became very unreliable the last few years, but it had been great for years. A password vault problem is ESSENTIAL!!! I loved Splash ID. I love this much more so far! Especially the sync! (Just add the icons!)
