If you’re a Mac user with multiple Macs then you understand, appreciate and frustrated with the Keychain in OS X. The Keychain is where we store all of our login IDs and passwords (and other valuable data). Keeping Keychain data in some measure of synchronization between Macs is usually a manual method.
Manual. Yep. Add an email login ID and password on one Mac, then do it again on another Mac. Then do it again for every app that needs to store a login ID or password in Keychain.
Keychain2Go to the rescue. Sure, you can do a manual copy of the Keychain between Macs, and even setup an automated process, but Keychain2Go does it automatically.
Install Keychain2Go on multiple Macs, then walk through the setup. Select the appropriate keychain, and click the Enable Sync button.
You’ll need to authenticate with your administrator’s password, but Keychain2Go takes over and syncs the keychains between Macs.
I try to keep three Macs in sync with apps, files, documents (each acts as a backup to the others), and upon installing Keychain2Go I still had to add a few more email and website login IDs and passwords to get each Mac synchronized.
The connection between devices is secured by Keychain2Go. There’s also an iOS version with a few more features.
After installation– nothing. It just works. The only real issue is that your Mac must be on the same local network as the other Mac. Maybe one day we’ll see iCloud or Dropbox synchronization between devices, for for now it doesn’t get much easier than Keychain2Go.
