In between are login ID and password managers that don’t cost an arm and a leg, supply high levels of security for important data, and even have versions that run on iPhone and iPad, and sync data between devices. Here’s one of them. It’s called eWallet.
High Security, Low Price
A trend has developed over the past two or three years that has affected how I try and buy applications for my Apple iDevices. I want apps that sync between devices on each platform.
eWallet does that. It’s an elegant solution to password management that features 256-bit AES encryption, auto-locking, instant search, a built-in random password generator, and a sync-between-devices-system that is so 1999. Or, is it?
If all you use to manage passwords is your Mac, eWallet is very good. If all you use is your iPhone, eWallet is more than a decent way to store bank account information, credit card numbers, login IDs and passwords.
Adding accounts, credit cards, bank information, contacts, incriminating information, and login IDs and passwords is simple.
Looks good, right? Even better, there are eWallet versions for iPhone and iPad, Android devices, Windows, and even BlackBerry.
The only negative here– and I’m not completely sure it’s a negative, because a little paranoia can be good for the soul (and your private information)– is that eWallet does not use iCloud or Dropbox to sync data between devices. Instead, it uses old-fashioned local Wi-Fi network connection to sync between Mac and iPhone (or other devices).
On one hand, that syncing process seems very 1999. On the other hand, the Wi-Fi sync also means your data is not stored on iCloud, Dropbox, or the NSA or CIA’s servers, and that seems like a plus.
