There are dozens of Mac and iPhone apps which manage passwords, login IDs, credit card numbers, bank account numbers, serial numbers and pretty much any kind of important, sensitive, valuable information.
I have yet to try them all but I’ve used a few dozen already and find the latest batch of security apps to be 21st century lifestyle friendly. A good example is mSecure. The claim to fame here is a password manager that’s secure, modestly priced, and syncs up nicely between Mac and iPhone via iCloud or Dropbox. Oh, and it’s easy to setup and use, too.
mSecure uses 256-bit Blowfish encryption for added security, but also auto-locks when not in use. To help with security, it also creates un-guessable passwords, and masks sensitive field data from prying eyes.
Data is further safeguarded by an auto-backup scheme so you don’t lose information as you’re entering or editing.
mSecure features almost 20 templates to manage different data types from serial numbers to bank accounts and credit cards to the standard login ID and password that most of us need all too often.
The number of data fields are is unlimited, of course, and getting started is nothing more than selecting the Add Item button and filling in the blanks. This app is far less expensive than 1Password or others I’ve used, and the mostly four an five star reviews on the Mac App Store are highly deserved.
Earlier versions had trouble syncing up online but I’ve had zero trouble with the latest. It’s just a good, dependable way to keep valuable data on your person but secure and synchronized between devices.
