Love the App

I used the app on a PC before working on a mac. I was really glad they created the Mac version of pwSafe. It’s easy to use. I like that I can store my files where I want to - network, cloud, hard drive, etc. I appreciate the fact that my one-time purchase allows me to download it to my MacBook, iPad, and iPhone at the same itme. It’s very hand, especially if I need to access it while I’m helping a staff member. If you’re looking for an app to store your passwords definitely try psSafe!

Flawlessly Keeps my iOS and Mac passwords synced

I’ve been using this app for years on both the Mac and on several iOS devices. It just works, works well, and gets constantly updated to provide an even better experience. Just call me delighted! I’m just so incredibly happy with it! Never loses my info either.

Simple, lightweight and no monthly fee

I’ve been using Pwsafe for 3 years. It syncs across all my Apple devices. It’s extremely lightweight and I primarily use the search feature to get any password pulled up quick.

passwords don’t need to to be a really delightful experience, they just need to be quick and out of your way.
