There are two basic issues with 1Password. It’s comprehensive (lots of features). It’s expensive (you get what you pay for). When a friend, family member, or co-worker asks about the best way to handle user ID’s and passwords I tell them my choice. Then they ask for another recommendation.
For about one third the price you can get Locko, a user ID, password, and data storage app which is easy to use, syncs nicely between Macs, has browser extensions for easy website login, and has hefty encryption security.
Locko makes it easy to setup website logins, including passwords with the built-in password generator.
Logging into a website is made easier with browser extensions for all popular Mac browsers. Security is enhanced with AES-256 bit encryption. Without the password, the user IDs, credit cards, and passwords you’ve stored won’t be opened.
Locko also has an option to encrypt and store specific files, and everything can be saved on Dropbox (for easy sync between Macs), or, if you buy the Mac App Store version, you can save using iCloud.
One look at Locko and you can see that it’s easy to setup and use, but has enough bells and whistles to justify the modest price tag. Secure notes in Locko. Create passwords. Even secure photos. Locko is a pleasure to use, and already has that simplified iOS flat look from iOS 7 and likely to show up in OS X 10.10 later this year.
What Locko is missing is an iOS version that syncs user IDs and passwords from Mac to iPhone and iPad. I mention Locko because it’s a great password manager that’s priced right and the developer says they’re working on an iOS version.
