Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
LockBox lets you store and protect sensitive info such as credit card numbers, bank accounts, passwords, pin numbers, private notes, and any other secret information on your iPhone or iPod Touch.
New! *You can export/backup data securely via a WiFi connection to your computer. Remember to do this regularly!
Looking for more? The Pro version is now available as well! The new Pro version will feature bulk data importing, stronger encryption, no ads and unlimited sub-fields per entry.
New: Check out our new, fun photo sharing app called Rotzy!
Use it to keep information handy and also protected at the same time.
All data is encrypted and protected by your secret code, so only you have access to it, even if you let your friends borrow your phone to make a call or browse online.
This is the kind of information that you want easy access to while you are on the go, but find it hard to recall just when you need it. For example, I always forget my bank account number right when I need to deposit a check at the bank.
Best of all, its free!
IMPORTANT BACKUP INFORMATION:
Remember to sync and do a backup of your data through the LockBox app before updating to newer versions! You never know what might happen to your phone in the middle of a sync :-) Also, the iTunes backup is not enough in some cases especially when you have to replace your phone or reset it, so make sure you use the WiFi backup method to protect your data. Its the only way to make sure your data is safe when doing a sync or restore for your device.
What's New in Version 1.5
fix export issue with iOS 5.0
app failed - could not get my passwords
A little voice in my head told me a couple of times to back up my 50 + passwords stored in the app. I didn't listen and a week later the app on my current iPhone 4s would not open. I used the app on my iPhone 3 and never had a problem. Years later I got an iPhone 4s and installed the app, used it for 3 years with no problem. I checked the app on the old iPhone 3 and it opens. I had also backed up these passwords but they were all old and out of date. I tried to restore the iPhone 4s but that did not fix the problem. I then deleted the app from the 4s and restored again. It worked! I'm elated. I tested these solutions on my old iPhone before I did them on the 4s to see if/when I might lose the password info on the app. I did not lose any info. So, I am wondering if the problem is because of the app (for which I also discovered there is no longer any support for), or is it some other issue? Now I will keep another copy of all my data somewhere else and will only rely on this app as a convenient way of carrying around all my info with me.
NO LONGER WORKS, CANNOT EXPORT DATA
i have had this for a couple of years and everything was fine until i got a new Mac, now i can no longer export data. not sure if it had to do with update to iPhone or what. it used to be simple. I have so many passwords on this app that i periodically would export and print out what i have just in case i ever should lose or break my phone, it would be catastrophic. I contacted the company once and they blew me off. i read online that the problem was that the app gives you the wrong ip address for your phone to enter on your address line on your computer in order to export data. it told me to go to settings, wifi, click on arrow next to network name and i would see my ip address, which i do, but when i enter that in safari it is still not able to connect to the phone. Now i don't know what i'm going to do, if i download a new app, i will have to copy dozens of password entries by hand and then enter them into a new app. UUUGGGGGGGHHHHHH!!! not happy!
DONT BUY THIS!!
I've had this app for several years and it worked fine. I recently got a new phone and tried to export my data to the new phone. I followed the directions, it said "data updated", but nothing was happened on the new phone. It did however wipe all the data out of the old one!! Now all my passwords are just gone! The developers website no longer exists.
I paid for the pro version and it's been abandoned by the creator.
Luckily I have a paper back up. But I have had it with apps that I have paid for and then the creators abandon them! Lockbox, Awesome note, My Stuff to name a few.
Lesson learned - pen and paper. And only free apps from now on.
