Customer Reviews

Premium version is worth it

I was unhappy that I had to buy this program, and buy the iOS version, and then come to find that if you wanted all the features you had to upgrade to “premium” on the Mac version and ALSO the iOS version. But with this Heartbleed bug situation and all the bazillion passwords I have to change and keep track of, I bit the bullet and paid the 2 x $4.99 to upgrade both.

At first I didn’t think it was working, but it is. It syncs just fine between desktop and iOS versions, oddly only managing to do it via Dropbox (icloud doesn’t work between Mac and iOS for some reason) and at full 256bit encryption. So it was worth it, and now I don’t have to worry about it.

I’m sure if you search around though you will probably find a solution that is less money and syncs just fine between all your devices, but I’m also sure that the most attractive and least expensive one is actually produced by a fake company funded by the NSA, who will then secretly collect all your logins and passwords. :-)

This one works and seems very secure… and doesn’t seem likely to be connected to the NSA.

Love the premium version

The transition was just a little confusing but once I got by that, I’m loving the new auto-synch capability in the premium version.

I had made some changes to my desktop version of Datavault before I activated the auto-sync (without having synced them with my IOS devices). I then activated auto-sync and expected the changes that I had made to my desktop version to show up in my IOS devices. But the changes were not recognized. Therefore, I thought something was amiss.

However, I made an additional change to my desktop version and then when I went to my IOS devices, I got the message that a change was made and was prompted as to whether I wanted to update my IOS device. When I responded affirmatively, “all” of the changes that had been made to my desktop device were then synced to my IOS devices.

Now, each change that I make is automatically recognized among my different platforms automatically. Works great.

THE BEST PASSWORD MANGER! Just keeps getting better with each version

I have been using this program since the original version. Each version continues to make things better and easier to use. With the latest sync option where I can sync using various methods, it is awesome. I use Drop Box and it works perferct between my Mac, iPhone and iPad Mini. I could not be happier with how all 3 platforms work together! Also - Marc the owner and developer is incredible to work with. He has always been available to me and listens as well as helps when I have had issues which has been very seldom and my issue not his. The latest improvement was to go to AES-256 Bits Algorithm encryption. The level of security is the best. The price is very reasonable for 9.99 for my mac and then 4.99 for my iPhone. Just want to say that when you buy this you will not regret it one bit as it is the best out there!
