If there’s one thing most Mac users on the internet need, and hate to use, it’s passwords, login IDs, PIN numbers, credit card numbers, and any secret information we need to keep, and keep out of sight.
Mac users have a few dozen password managers from which to choose, though far fewer also sync secret information from Mac to iPhone or iPad. That’s what Passwords Plus does.
It’s a secure 256-bit AES encryption app that secures your information and automatically syncs to the iPhone version of the app. Using Passwords Plus is straightforward.
The Toolbar makes it easy to create a new item. Choose a template to make it easier to add data. Click the Edit button in the Toolbar to edit an item. The rest is self explanatory.
Use Passwords Plus to create categories of information, and setup favorites for more frequently used items, such as login IDs and passwords, or credit card numbers.
The app will actually self destruct the data if too many wrong passwords are entered. But, fear not. Passwords Plus makes backups on your Mac, and syncs up with iPhone and iPad versions of the app using a secure cloud storage system (not iCloud or Dropbox).
There’s not much to dislike about this app. It’s elegant, not confusing. Options are only those you may really need (self destruct, backup, restore, sync).
If there’s a negative it’s that the iPhone and iPad version don’t reflect the usual price differential between Mac apps and iOS apps.
