The rest of us are relegated to using an app to store them all and make websites easier to log in to. That ranges from Stickies to OS X’s Keychain app to the popular, complex, and premium 1Password app, to those in-between. Here’s a very good ‘tweener.
Safe And Secure With Safe+
What I like about Safe+ is that it’s simple to use, highly secure, and works on Mac, iPhone, and iPad. What I don’t like is the app name. Safe with a Plus sign–‘+’.
How hard is it to be more original than simply adding a plus sign to an obviously descriptive name to make it different than others using the same name?
Regardless, Safe+ is a good way to organize and store more than just website URL’s, user IDs, and passwords.
It also stores contacts, photos, bank account information, credit card details, health insurance and medical information and does it all in military grade 256-bit AES encryption.
Alright, so Safe+ could use a more clever name, but it securely stores important data on Mac, iPhone, and iPad, including photos, and that’s what you want. Easy access, high security.
Is it easy to use?
Each entry you put into Safe+ has room for all the details you need, plus there’s a long list of icons to match each entry.
Safe+ has templates for website URL’s, credit cards, bank accounts, personal contacts, photos, and plain text. That means all those incriminating photos can be hidden with a click.
My criteria for recommending a password manager is simple. Easy setup and entry. AES encryption. Sync between devices. Safe+ has all that. It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles you’ll find in my favorite, 1Password, but it does the job.
