Keeping your data safe and secure. It sounds obvious but far too many of us take risks, often by not using particularly secure passwords. After all, it’s so much easier to remember your dog’s name than a string of 12 characters, right? DataVault Password Manager aims to encourage safer habits by making it easy to manage all your passwords via your iOS device, as well as store other important information such as card numbers. $9.99 soon seems like a small price to pay for such security.
DataVault isn’t going to win any prizes for its style, looking like a much older iOS app than it is. The only real glimmer of later iOS usage is courtesy of its Touch ID support, which should prove convenient for those lucky enough to own a newer iPhone.
Underneath that ugly exterior, however, are plenty of useful features. You can safely store many important pieces of information here, from your bank account details to your credit card numbers, as well as logins for many different accounts. In each cad, you can set up a new entry, ensuring that you’re not restricted to templates that aren’t relevant to you. DataVault offers plenty of encryption features as well a master password feature, so everything should be entirely secure. Auto-wipe features complete the package quite well.
As well as being able to store so much information, DataVault has a convenient password generator that enables you to create passwords very quickly. Besides being able to adjust length and types of characters used, it’ll also tell you how strong the password is - meaning you always know how many steps you’ve made to keeping your data secure. There’s iCloud support as well, so everything can be synchronized safely elsewhere.
Password management is an increasingly vital form of security for many of us, DataVault Password Manager covers many of the bases to ensure that you can keep your data secure. For those who are particularly concerned and want to store all sorts of information safely, it’s hard not to recommend this app - even despite those ugly looks.
