Two unmistakable trends are in the Mac headlines this year. Security. Cheap apps. Combine the two and you get a Mac app that stores important information.
What needs to be stored, tucked away in a secret place? Credit card numbers, login IDs, passwords, bank account numbers. Those are pieces of data you need handy but secured away.
Numbers, Numbers Everywhere
Here’s the problem. We have too many numbers. If it’s not credit cards, it’s login IDs and passwords for web sites. If it’s not bank account numbers it’s social security numbers.
Another problem is that we need access to those numbers.
That means secrecy is important but so is convenience.
Enter an inexpensive Mac app with a corresponding Windows PC cousin and a matching iPhone app. All those important numbers can be stored securely and sync effortlessly back and forth.
SafeWallet is a remarkably simple app that does the above and a little more to secure private information, yet make all it available with the right password.
Putting your numbers into SafeWallet is simple. Create the account, add the name and numbers, and anything else that’s important.
SafeWallet is not a cluttered, confusing app. Wallets are listed in the sidebar. The Toolbar features both a Sync Manager and a Password Generator.
This is a handy way to safeguard important information but make it mobile, too.
Not only does it work on your Mac and PC, but the iPhone version synchronizes so you can carry information with you but keep it secure.
SafeWallet uses AES 256-bit encryption.
Even if your Mac is stolen or iPhone is lost, the data remains inside SafeWallet.
This is a good way to prevent the easiest of security gaffes. Use different passwords for everything, and make the passwords complex using the built-in password generator. They’re untested, but versions of SafeWallet are available for BlackBerry and Android devices. Unlike the trend in the Mac App Store, SafeWallet features a trial version.
