- Password is marked with all kinds of "non-persist" flags, so that pasteboard managers don't save or remember it.

Instead of trusting on a single developer security knowledge, pwSafe borrows all its encryption code directly from the famous Password Safe open source password manager (

Password Safe has been originally created by security guru Bruce Schneier and nowadays is maintained by Rony Shapiro. Since it has been around as an open source project for almost a decade now, it has been extensively reviewed by many experts.

What's New in Version 4.1

- Better entry matching for the Safari Extension (make sure to update the extension too)
- More effective receipt restoration on pwSafe Cloud's "Restore Purchases" button

Bugs fixed:
- Crash when trying to use the extension with iCloud Drive disabled

Customer Reviews

Works perfectly, and a very important tool!

This is one of the few apps that I can say I rely on fully and perform their job perfectly! Very professional and as user friendly. It was recommended to me, and I would recommend this to anyone looking for a password safe.

Compatible with the official windows version

I use pwsafe on the mac to open my password safe files. It works, the UI isn’t as good as the windows version, but it gets the job done. It also supports yubikey so i can open encrypted files on both platforms now.

Does Everything I Need from a Password App

This App works for me. This is not the kind of thing where you try other Apps that do the same thing, so I am comparing this in a vacuum, but I cannot think of anything else that I need from this App.
