When you lose an iPhone you’ve made the one who found it very happy. If you’re lucky, they’ll return it. If not, they’ve got all of your basic user information. What all of us iPhone users need is an app like Safe.
It’s an inexpensive and simple way to store sensitive, valuable information on the iPhone and keep it all in a secure 256-bit AES encrypted wrapper. Lose your iPhone and it’s unlikely the average finder will get your information.
What kind of information do most of us need to have secured away, out of view of prying eyes?
Credit card numbers and PINs. Bank account numbers. Online user accounts. Or, photos or anything else you don’t want to get in the wrong hands and viewed by the wrong eyeballs.
Safe makes it rather simple to encrypt and store that information. Start using Safe by selecting a Category for information you want to carry with you.
Safe comes with plenty of categories and pre-defined templates, or forms, to hold your information.
Safe gives you an option to store a note with each item, and they can be reorganized simply by moving them to another category. Any URL field in Safe instantly opens Safari with a touch.
There’s a built-in auto lock function which locks Safe after a set period of time, or when you answer an incoming call on your iPhone. Safe is well done, inexpensive, and straightforward to setup and use. However, there’s no Mac version and no use of iCloud to sync files between devices.
