Best Password Manager - avoid a vendor lock-in with this app!

This app is the one I use the most on my iPad - my personal #1 app. A good password manager makes daily use so much easier and is essential for your own security. I use it not only for passwords, but also for other sensitive information (e.g. ID data) that should not be stored unprotected. What makes this password manager stand out: - I don't know of any password manager with a better feature set (and I've tested many). - The product is actively supported. The developer takes suggestions for improvement and makes the app even better with each release. - There is no compulsion to use a vendor cloud solution. A cloud solution - however it is designed - always has the potential security risk of a design flaw or hack! That is not the case here. - The password database is stored using an open database format. There are open source solutions for access on any platform. So access / export of your own password database is always guaranteed. With many other proprietary solutions you have a vendor lock-in after a very short time, you cannot export your data. Migrating hundreds of passwords manually is not an option. If such a vendor would stop providing the service you would have a big problem - and we are not talking about loosing access to some cloud stored holiday pictures.

Thank you for the review! We're glad to hear that you're enjoying using Strongbox.



If its not Tim Apple’s #1 passcode manager, it should be!

Having purchased my first Apple device (ipad mini5) in 2020, I was looking for a solid password manager to run my kdbx files. I narrowed it down to two choices: Strongbox and Keepassium. Since they both offered free trials, I evaluated them side by side. Both developers are responsive professionals and both have created fine applications. Ultimately, I deleted Keepassium and chose to purchase a pro lifetime subscription to Strongbox. I am highly satisfied with Mark’s app. The deciding factor was simple: my eye preferred the sexy look and slick feel of Strongbox. It runs perfectly, it’s easy to use, and does exactly what I need it to do while maintaining bomb proof security. Even though it is more work, I choose to manually sync the database files with my Tresorit account. But Strongbox does feature auto-sync compatibility with other cloud storage companies if I change my mind. Thank you so much for creating (and maintaining) such a exceptional application! It is one of my all time favorites because it’s a solid and indispensable app for serious users.

Best option for iOS

As a KeePass power user (over 900 entries), I am on the prowl for the most safe, user-friendly, and reliable KeePass app on iOS. Originally a MiniKeePass user, it started to fail me when I was locked out of my own database because MiniKeePass did not support Argon2 encryption algorithm. Luckily, I searched on Reddit's /r/KeePass subreddit, and found StrongBox was on the list of official recommendations for iOS. Sure enough, not only did it support Argon2 encryption, but it offered a whole host of nitfy features that MiniKeePass lacked, such as FaceID unlock (humongous game-changer in saving time from punching in passwords), easily visible TOTP token keys that you can copy & paste, and also Favicons that are preserved. I cannot express how impressed I am with StrongBox, it's the level of functionality and features that reminds me of Android's KeePass2Android, but even superior. Do yourself a favor and grab the Pro version, and support this wonderful developer! Being open-sourced, vetted, and safe is important to me, and StrongBox checks all these boxes.

I would highly recommend to my family and friends.
