    1Password 7.0 for iOS

    Secure password manager and digital wallet.

    I would go with 1Password, I've tried this and Dashlane and I think this one is better. Not only the UI is cleaner but the integrations work better. I constantly had issues with Dashlane's autocomplete in Safari while this never happened with 1Password.

      1Password plays one of the most important role in protecting your personal informations online... and it does it perfectly well! The iOS app is everything you could ever need in such a service.

      The security model is "we're selling you a vault; you set the combo; we can't open it." (Very Apple-esque.) I sync to 2 IOs devices, 2 Macs and 1 Android tablet via Dropbox. (Agile offers their own sync, with their new subscription model.) Fingerprint unlock on iPhone is fantastic - 1Password is top-right on home screen. Perhaps the best measure - I can't recall a single technical problem with 1P, ever. Rock-solid code.

      It's definitely a leap to use a password manager. Actually it's a pain in the ass. but it's so worth it.

      Passwords aren't going away any time soon so this is the only safe options for the near future. Get onto it.

      RememBear is an excellent product from a trustworthy company. It's targeted at everyone who owns a computer or smartphone making it extremely easy to use while promoting and support the need for online security.

    • Overall a great start but lacks functionality requires to take on competion in a already densely populated market.

    Myki Authenticator

    Login to any account on any device with your fingerprint

    Antonio Dimas

    Ever since I made the switch to Myki password manager and authenticator I've never looked back -- also all basic features are free and no subscriptions. I was a fan of 1Password (and tried all others too) ever since it became integrated into iOS, but I never felt like it convinced me enough. I highly recommend Myki to anyone -- it offers local password storage rather than in the cloud, browser extensions, autofill, 2FA, cards, notes, etc and all dark mode which looks solid on my iPhone X. I'm not a sponsor nor work for the company, I just really love this app lol

      I have been using Myki for ~6 months now. Myki is an excellent password app that has all the major features of the more popular apps with one big added bonus - it's essentially 2 factor authentication for all of your stored passwords, because you must have your phone with you to fill passwords on your computer (more on this later).

      Here's a quickie on how Myki works: You're using your laptop. You navigate to a website and need to fill in your password. A Myki prompt pops up, you click it, and then a notification shows on your phone to grant access. Tap "Grant" on your phone, use your fingerprint to authorize, and you're done! Myki fills the password on your computer.

      I've used 1Password for a long time now and generally think they are the best of the "big" password managers. However, I don't like the idea that if anyone stole my computer, they could try to guess my master password and then have access to all of my sensitive data. With Myki, they would need my computer AND my phone. You cannot get Myki to fill a password just from the Chrome extension, like 1Password, you always have to authenticate on your phone.

      Myki also stores passwords locally, which is a big plus for those of us worried about cloud hacks.

      We all know we have a big weakness in passwords. Randomly generated passwords via 1Password are great and help make our accounts more secure, but you still have to come up with a master password that you easily remember & type, which means it's likely that the password you need to be MOST SECURE is the EASIEST to guess! D'oh! Myki eliminates that inherent conflict by using your fingerprint as the passcode.

      On a final note, there are a few bugs in Myki since it's so new. But I keep an eye on the release notes, and they've been frequently knocking out bugs and improving the app. I run 1Password alongside it right now for convenience, but eventually once Myki has really built out its platform, I plan to fully switch over. I'd highly recommend you check this out, especially if you're a cyber-security freak like myself (which, who shouldn't be lately- gotta hodl those bubbly bitcoins).

    • Myki has become an indispensable tool in my day-to-day life. Now with the credit card integration i'm also using myki during my online shopping. Can't wait to see what's yet to come.
