How does a Mac, iPhone, or iPad user keep their information safe? Fortunately, there are dozens of apps which do the deed, some nearly free, some expensive and complex, and some in-between. Here’s one in the middle.
Is Anything Safe?
That’s a good question to ask, but I don’t have an answer. Safe + (hereinafter referred to as Safe Plus, because Safe + is like Google +; it’s dumb) tries with 256-bit AES encryption.
Safe Plus also works on Mac, iPhone, and iPad, so whatever login IDs, passwords, credit card details, back account information or anything else is easily synchronized between devices.
Most of these secure login ID, password, credit card, and bank account managers work much the same way, and Safe Plus is no different.
Set up useful categories and add details to a record, complete with identifying icons (Amazon, Twitter, Facebook, banking, etc.). Then, start adding the details; login IDs, passwords, credit card numbers, bank account numbers, and more.
What’s useful about Safe Plus is the option to open Safari and log in to a website using the login ID and password, and the website’s URL.
On the surface, Safe Plus is decent, and will work very well on a Mac, or an iPhone, or an iPad.
When you want to synchronize data between devices is exactly where Safe Plus falls down. It doesn’t use iCloud to sync files. Instead, you need to make a backup file and import it into each device which nullifies the ease-of-use of data entry and usage. Many password management apps do data synchronization very well well. Safe Plus needs that, too.
