Password Manager by Passible - App Review



Those of you who have reading this blog for a while will know that security is very important.

Any App that gives you a chance to improve matters is worth a look.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
You are greeted by a screen that invites you to enter a Master Passcode.

This is made up of four characters which are basically numbers but, as there are alphabetical keys on the keyboard, you could 'pretend' that it is a four letter word.

There are a couple of examples already input for you to give a feel for how the App works. It is important to differentiate between Logins (website, user name, password, notes) and Cards (type, number, expiry, version, PIN code, first name, last name, address (complete), telephone).

Having input your information, go back to the screen that will analyse the security of your password, and make suggestions as to how to improve the security.

Once you are set, you can easily use Passible in Safari by opening the extensions menu and use the App.

It really is very easy to use.

Cost
The App costs a nominal $1.

Indispensability
If you have your passwords written (arghhh) here and there, get this App.

Dependability
The App is simple to use and just works. There are various help screens which make life even easier, should you need them.

Security
Your data is encrypted using AES-256 which is widely accepted as a benchmark.

The default for requiring your pass code to enter the App is 30 seconds; this can be altered to nil within settings.


ACIDS Test Rating:

Added security is welcome, especially when it is so easy to use.
