Customer Reviews

Slightly better than using a spreadsheet

The one function I was looking forward with this product was cross-platform syncing. So far, this has not worked properly. I have it installed on a Mac and an iPhone (so a total of $20 spent so far), and the only way to synchronize records is to export and restore from one device to the other. The only part of synchronizing that works properly is when I add or delete an entire record. If I merely edit an existing record (like updating the password) on either device, it does not show up on the other device. I have tried everything in their manual and FAQ to resolve this, including several emails with tech support and it does not work properly.

Of course, this severely limits the usefulness of this program, if I can’t depend on password updates getting propagated without going through the clunky export and restore process.

Very disappointing.

One of my most-used apps—worth every cent!

I have 162 records in it, and I keep thinking of more things to add. It’s very intuitive and easy to customize I also have the iPhone version, and the Windows one at work, and I can easily sync them and keep them all current. No more hunting for passwords I don’t use often, or writing down my work ones on Post-Its because they make me change them every month (yeah, that’s a GOOD security measure!) My one complaint used to be that the Mac version defaulted to opening all the folders when it opens, even when I left them closed—but this version fixed that (now it they’ll just do the same on the iPhone one…)

Best password manager out there.

I love it I can create my own passwords and it copies and pastes into the web devices, plus this can back up to the iCloud for multiple devices and I can also manually wifi sync to my iPhone ! This program is flawless with AEP encryption. I have tried others such as splash id and Lastpass and they are too complicated to figure out, plus I don’t trust the encryption. I feel safe and secure because wiith this I can edit my own fields and it masks passwords when I open the app. It works. Great password manager for multiple websites that I have to use.
