Can’t survive without this app!

I can’t imagine surviving our password and data driven world without this app, I use it nearly every day either to store or to retrieve data. I use it to store passwords and all sorts of other important data, securely on my laptop or other device, and sync it easily across all of my devices via a secure wifi. Every time I am forced to create a new account of any kind I quickly set up a new entry in DataVault on whatever device I am using at the time - phone or pad - to store the relevant information url, customer service #, account name, password and anything else that may be relevant. Then when I am back on my secure wifi I can quickly sync between all of my devices. For those who prefer to sync via the cloud, that option is also available. Pre-designed templates for various types of data make it easy and each is customizable to add additional fields. And of course the entire data base is searchable. It is invaluable when traveling because I always have secure access to my data since it is stored on my device, not in the cloud, which I believe is one of its best features.

DataVault Password Manager…..Usability and ‘Cloud’ Syncing - DropBox vs Apple Cloud

I have always been more than happy and satisfied with the performance of DataVault in my many years of using it. When syncing to a ‘Cloud’ service became an option for we users, I elected to utilize Dropbox as I had used it for other things in the past and it has always worked well for me in keeping an iMac, MacBook, iPhone and iPad DataVault all in sync. With the recent changes in the Free Dropbox model and being able to only sync three computers / devices, it left me a little short of need. So, I elected to try the Apple Cloud sync method and to evaluate how well it worked with DataVault. I have tested the Apple Cloud sync now for 4 days, making numerous changes on my iMac, MacBook, iPhone and iPad. My evaluation is that it works seamlessly and accurately between devices. The Apple Cloud method does seem to take a bit longer to get changes made to my other devices, but it works well, sync's a little slower but works.

Ascendo is a great software company, giving frequent updates to DataVault, and listening to users needs. Thank you Ascendo!

This is what I was looking for

As a long-time user of complex passwords, I have been looking to update my password software. I use encryption software from time to time, when required by my company, and I was not looking to get a password manager that would conflict with the existing functions in the other software systems (which is sometimes hard to predict). This version is a nice upgrade, and provides a secure home for information that I need. I am also very happy with the simplified database format used, as I am very comfortable using database arrangements for information. Since I was actually trying to avoid the subscription model for this type of software, I appreciate the option to purchase this function specifically (and I will look for other ways to support the developers as well, since I think the price is a bargain). The fact that I can use this software across several devices is a new convenience, and I may try it out when I upgrade my tablet or phone software packages (again I have to avoid conflicts with my company software functions).
