We all have multiple accounts on different websites, including net banking, social media, email accounts, cloud accounts, and many more. Based on their importance, we set different passwords with different alphanumeric combinations. Everything is fine if we use those accounts regularly. The chaos starts if we use them occasionally because that’s when we forget those strong passwords.
Thankfully, there’s an iOS app for that as well called Passwords Keeper. You may be skeptical of storing important account information with a third-party app, and that’s a reasonable concern. But Passwords Keeper has answers to your questions, and that’s precisely what we will discuss in this post.
Security and Encryption
None of the features will impress you if we start this review with things that matter the least when it comes to storing essential passwords with a third-party. Apple iOS is all about security and privacy, and that’s one of the primary reasons people buy an iPhone and iPad. Let me tell you that with Passwords Keeper, your privacy and security is enhanced, not compromised.
That’s because all the passwords and other information that you store on the app remains in the encrypted form right on your device. The Passwords Keeper never stores any information on the cloud. They can’t even read any of your passwords. Also, the app password that you set is stored on your device with secure encryption.
To test this claim, we tested it without any internet connection. The app worked flawlessly even when the iPhone was completely offline.
Using Passwords Keeper
Passwords Keeper is created to make your life a bit easier, and that is visible by quick and straightforward navigation throughout the app. When launched for the first time, you are asked to set up a PIN. You can also set up Touch ID or Face ID as well to unlock the app.
This is the master password to access all your app or website credentials. Once you are done with initial setup, you can proceed to add websites, their username, and passwords. There are 340 different icons available in the app to personalize the record. Next time when you wish to sign-in, tap the website name in the app, and it will automatically log you in. That’s pretty neat, in my opinion.
Backup, Restore, Break-in reports, and more
Like almost all other apps, the Passwords Keeper app also supports iCloud backup and restore. Just in case if you lose your device, you can get everything back using the iCloud restore feature. In addition to that, the app also features tracking Break-in attempts.
Inside the app, under Settings, you need to enable Tracking option. Once done, whenever anyone enters the wrong password to access the app, it will click their photo using front-camera of your device and store it. This allows you to keep track of who is trying to access your device in your absence.
Apart from the core functionality and secure encryption, the app has some handy features that make operating the app extremely easy. One of them is an integrated search option that allows you to search for a specific website or app credentials. This comes in super handy if you have hundreds of record stored on the app.
Besides that, some other features include one-tap sign in to any website, accessible only by you, autofill username and passwords to sites, and auto-locking to protect your credentials.
Easy to understand and Setup Guide
The App has an in-built tutorial under Help section in the App settings that guides you through the process with easy to understand screenshots.
The Passwords Keeper app solves a crucial issue of remembering long and complex passwords in a very secure way. Given the functionality it offers, the app isn’t free to use. However, there’s a 15-days free trial available and based on your experience you can decide to subscribe to it from a couple of the available options – 1 month/$1.99, and 12 months/$9.99
That’s all for now!
Having used the Passwords Keeper app for a while now, it has made things a lot easier while logging into any website. It is secure, safe, and convenient to use. On top of that, the subscription plan allows you to add unlimited websites, which make things a lot more exciting. I’ll strongly recommend to try the 15-days trial period and share your feedback with us.
