Ratings and Reviews
Finally! A simple and secure way to manage all those passwords!
No more scraps of paper strewn around the desk and in drawers. No more stickies on the monitor. No more half-baked, unsecured attempts to manage the glut of passwords with apps like Word or Excel. This is the best solution I've tried for safely and securely storing IDs and passwords. It's quick to get started, simple to use and oh so handy with the ability to cut and paste info into a browser. I love the ability to have multiple password files. Each family member can have their own, private file. It's easy to switch back and forth between them. I also love the ability to quickly hide the display when someone sneaks up behind you and tries to take a peek :-)
If you want to simplify your life, this is IT!!!
One-stop storage of secure information
I found this application to be quite intuitive and easy to use. It provides a simple way to store any type of information you might want to keep secure. It's formatted for websites that require a userid and password, but can be used to keep track of all sorts of secure information: credit card numbers, pin numbers, library accounts, etc. I would definitely recommend this application for anyone who wants to store all their secure data in one handy place.
Perfect for passwords
I can't imagine how I ever lived without this app! I use it constantly. Initially I had a small amount of difficulty saving many entries in one sitting, but I'm sure it was only because I hadn't upgraded to Lion. But even in Snow Leopard, I really enjoyed setting it up, and all subsequent entries have been a breeze. I highly recommend this beautiful, user-friendly app for anyone who wants all passwords to be safe, easily accessible, and all together in one charming place.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
