If you’re like me, you know how important it is to keep your online accounts safe and secure. At a time when it seems like every day websites and stores are getting hacked and info is leaked, extra security is no longer a convenience; it’s pretty much mandatory.
This handy password manager has tons of features, but are they enough to set the app apart from other password managers?
Concept and Functionality:
As someone who has used a third party password manager for many years, I’m no stranger to this extra layer of security that many people seem to overlook.
It’s imperative to have total trust in any password manager you use, because it’s just like telling someone your deepest and darkest secrets; one wrong move and things can go bad very quickly for you and your login data.
A key to the success of SplashID Safe Password Manager is that it’s very easy to set up and use. And after all, if it’s not you probably won’t use it for very long.
All you have to do is create an account with an email address, password, and passcode for SplashID Safe Password Manager.
One thing I really like is you can create a pattern passcode by drawing lines and connecting dots, which is definitely a unique security feature.
Users with an iPhone 5s and newer can also use Touch ID on their device.
Once your account is created and your email is confirmed, you can start adding sites to SplashID Safe Password Manager. This can be a tedious task, and it’ll take quite a bit of time to do if you have a lot of sites to remember.
You can organize sites by category, though, which keeps things neat and tidy.
SplashID Safe Password Manager includes a built-in browser so you can auto-login to sites within the app using credentials you’ve saved. This definitely saves users the trouble of copying and pasting data into an external browser.
As you can probably imagine, the folks at SplashID Safe Password Manager have made an incredible effort to load the app up with useful features.
This includes aforementioned Touch ID support and even the ability to take photos of physical items such as credit cards.
However, one of the most important features, syncing, requires users to have the Pro version of the service. Without Pro, users are limited to one device and local storage only.
The pro upgrade costs users $19.99 per year and unlocks the ability to sync between all devices, including desktops. If you’re looking for a password manager that works on iDevices alone, there are definitely cheaper alternatives that include iCloud sync.
However, if you want an all-in-one solution to storing passwords across multiple devices, SplashID Safe Password Manager is certainly worth considering.
SplashID Safe Password Manager requires iOS 7.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
