Password Pad allows you to create multiple note files, each encrypted by a different password. You can also synchronize your files to your Mac.
New in version 1.2:
- Added iCloud functionality for easy synchronization with your Mac.
- Added integrated Dropbox functionality to easily copy files to and from your Dropbox service.
The key feature of password pad is its simplicity, which makes it easier to use (no need to fill in pre-existing forms) and also allows it to be easily extended to other uses. Keep your data in the format that you want, not in the format that someone else has decided for you. Simple search for the data that you want to retrieve.
Uses for Password Pad include:
- Create and store important information, such as website passwords, app serial numbers and bank details, all secured by a single password
- Keep a diary that others cannot read
- Email encrypted notes (e.g. credit card or login details) that the receiver can open only with the correct password
- Keep secret expense accounts
- Write your next masterpiece and keep it safe from prying eyes
- And many others!
Read what our users have to say:
“I’ve used other password management tools.... Password Pad has now replaced all of them. It’s just much simpler and faster to use, and I’m always finding new uses for it!”
- Darren Keeth
“I often need to secure more than just login names and passwords even for websites, and your app is the perfect tool for doing that”.
- Amie Shy
- The full version of Password Pad uses Triple DES, which has an effective key length of 112 bits. Each additional bit doubles the amount of time required to brute-force crack the password. A $10,000 machine would require approximately 197 trillion years to crack a Triple DES encrypted text.
- Triple DES security is used by the electronic payment industry to secure your credit card and ATM transactions.
- It is likely that the most effective way to crack an encrypted text in Password Pad is a dictionary search. Your data is only as secure as the password you choose.
What's New in Version 1.3.2
Fix iOS 6 autorotation on iPad
Love this app, and their support has been great!
I have used this app for the last 6 months or so. It is great that I can store encrypted files both locally as well as in the cloud.
The cloud feature is great as I can access my encrypted docs from my iPad, my MAC, as well as my phone.
Recently I ran into a challenge where auto-rotation was not working on my iPad. I contacted their support via an online form, they responded fairly quickly, and had an updated functional version available quickly.
Overall my experience has been great!
Direction of File Flow - good solution
What I wanted from this product was to be able to take some sensitive files from my large computers (macs/windows machines) and put them on my iphone and have them encrypted and have them password protected. Dropbox will do this easily if you don't care about encryption or password protection. Apple Pages may do this now but I didn't test that. MS Office file password protection isn't going to run on an iphone for a long time. I bought both the mac and iphone version of Password Pad. When I created a Mac Password Pad file, put it on dropbox, and opened it on the iPhone a text editor opened it and I saw a bunch of xml (not what I wanted). Password Pad claims to have a Dropbox interface but I haven't really been able to get it to work by placing files in Dropbox on the Mac and opening them on the iphone. It's easy to mail a Password Pad file off the iphone but that's not direction I'm looking for. So I hope I'm being fair to the product. I am what most people would consider a very technical person. After some playing around I found an answer. e-mail you mac password pad file to your iphone. When you see the attachment, hold your finger on it, and and "Open With" box will come up. On my iphone Password Pad was an Open With option. When you choose password pad to open it it will place the file in the Device section of Password Pad but it doesn't open that. You can go to the Device section and open it with iphone Password Pad.
Dropbox integration no longer works
This app is no longer being maintained. Look elsewhere.
