The new Passwords Plus 3.0 also features free editing and creating of up to 25 passwords for up to 60 days for new users. After 60 days, your passwords will be view-only and you will be without backup/restore options and the ability to auto-sync passwords between computers/devices.

Customer Reviews

100% CPU

I usually leave the app open after I ran it. It will auto lock after 15 minutes (changeable in settings). The CPU load on my Mac will jump from 0% to 100% right after the auto lock. This happens only after I upgraded to the latest version.

Update: Tested by opening the app without login. CPU went to 100% in a couple of seconds. Maybe the “Log in to Passwords Plus" screen is the blame.

Good Needs Improvement

I like the flexibility of the Mac version but they definitely need to add the ability to -at the very least- copy/paste passwords, usernames, etc from the app into web forms, etc. IF they add that feature, this app will surpass OnePassword in usability.

Inconsistent. Poor customer service.

A great app if it worked. It works, it doesn’t work. It works, it doesn’t work. I paid for the full version, and it app still shows trial has expired. I’ve contacted customer service and support team several times without response.
