Wonderful software!!

Señor Bushman

I’m a long time user of Codebook (also when it was Strip). It’s very powerful, but developers are slow to update. iPhone X has been out for a while now and I still have to manually type in a passcode to unlock the app. They took forever with Touch ID and now Face ID seems to be taking the same route.

Super quick response from developers. This will keep me as a user for a long time. You guys are awesome! Face ID works wonderfully!!

Developer Response

Thanks for the candid criticism and sorry for the trouble! Face ID should be ready to roll in the version you're using (3.5.0). You can enable Face ID authentication for Codebook by logging into Codebook and going to More > Settings > Login Settings > Enable Face ID Login. Please feel free to reach out to our support at if you're experiencing any issues enabling it. Thanks!

IT Dept. Recommended Codebook


The IT department at work recommended Codebook because of the level of security it offers. I ran the free version for a while and decided it was well worth the cost of the full version. I have used it for several years. I recently had a question regarding an issue I was having with syncing and the support team responded very quickly and resolved the issue promptly.

Great app and Great Customer service


Ive been using Codebook for a while now, and it’s great to manage passwords. I recently bought a PC and was having trouble syncing my iPhone and Windows device, Codebook has amazing and patient customer service. We quickly worked through the issue and now I’m all set. Love this app! Also the thumbprint to login is huge!
