Free Password Keeper App Review

The app’s interface is very simple to use and has a user-set them between traditional and modern options. Entering a password code is easy and once you have it in the system, it simply requires a single tap of the field to open the URL in a browser and paste in the username and password for you to use it. If you are not using Safari as your primary browser and don’t want to use the in-app browser then you can copy the code to the clipboard to paste in manually.

But the important feature of this app is security. You want to be sure that your passwords are protected if the device is lost or stolen. The security system uses a 256-bit AES encryption and auto-locks every time you leave the app or the device goes to standby mode to ensure that your data remains secure. You can also set a timer mode for the app to log out and configure a self-destruct mode which will perform a complete reset of the app if someone enters the wrong code more times than an amount you designate. If you have any information stored on the device clipboard then you can also clear this.

There is no limit to the amount of passwords and information you can store on the app and all data can be backed up. There are a couple of annoying features such as the tone that sounds when you enter a password (you can’t turn this off) or the fact that it only does automatic entry for Safari on in-app browser. But all-in-all it does the job well.

The Good

  • Simple interface
  • Easy to keep track of site links, user names, passwords, expiration dates, and more

  • Clear-clipboard feature if you wish to make sure your clipboard is clear. Keeps information secure

The Bad

The Verdict

Yes there are a couple of glitches but none that threaten your information’s availability. There are so many passwords and codes to remember nowadays. Don’t fall for the mistake of simply using one password for everything. Use a free password keeper app to securely store your codes and access them quickly when required.
