The is the BEST Password Manager

I have used this for years and the latest update is awesome! Since the latest update, I don’t need to use Drop Box to sync all my devises, I just use iCloud! It works without any issues at all. I have Data Vault on my MacBook Air, my iPad Mini and my iPhone. What is great about this is, I can make a change to any of my devises and it will sync the other devises for me, always keeping my important and up to date information on what ever devise I am using at the time, it doesn’t get any better than that for me. It is also very secure with the 128 bit encryption standard and the premium level allows a 256 bit encryption to keep your passwords safe! The last but most important item for me is the owner of this software company. Marc is incredible, he is ALWAYS available and works hard to make sure you are satified. Over the years, I have had questions or due to my mistake not understood a feature of this product. Marc has gone above and beyond to make sure that his product is working correctly and I am utilizing all the features of this software. I can honestly say that he is the easiest and best developer I have EVER worked with on the app’s that I own. I would highly recomend you buying this app if you are in need of an affordable and easy to use Password Manager.

A good passage from password hell

For the past 10 years, I just had a text file for passwords, account numers, and related information. I was always concerned about security of the file, and the information could get corrupted because I would occasionally accidentally change or lose information or update and forget to save the file.

Datavault was a welcome relief, solving virtually all of my concerns, and having a systematic structure. By using cloud storage, the data will be available on other computers/phones.

I encountered 2 bugs. I added my information for 100+ accounts manually over a period of several days, and sometimes the tree view would only show a few of my entries. At other times I could not enter infomation into the notes section at the bottom of the editing form. Both of these problems went away when I closed then re-opened the app.

There are also a couple of wishes: 1.Although there is room to add notes with an entry, it is text only. I’d like to have the ability to add screenshots or scans of documents. 2.The app provides a few dozen icons that can be used to make the display a little nicer, although many are so cryptic I don’t even know what they are supposed to represent. I thought it was bizarre that they offer a higher level version that adds more icons. That and the fact that I will have to buy a separate app at the same cost for your phone indicates that they have a bit of a not so customer friendly conniving price strategy.

DataVault is a Must Have

With the numerous data breaches involving passwords to banks, online services like Dropbox (which I use), and other websites, like you, I need to have a unique password for nearly every location I visit on the web. With DataVault, I only need to remember one password - the one for DataVault itself. Once inside I can access passwords for even those rarely-visited places on the web, like my power company’s website.

I also keep all my most important information in DataVault. Everything from bank accounts to insurance policy information, to frequent flyer details, and everything in between is stored in my DataVault. I never need to remember a password, account number, customer service phone number, or WiFi password again. It's easy to use, simple to sync with my iPhone and iPad over my wireless, and gives me anytime, anywhere access to my most sensitive data from my devices.

Can’t live without DataVault!
