Myki is an offline password manager and authenticator that allows you to login to any account on any device by approving a login request on your smartphone. The main difference between Myki and cloud-based password managers is that your passwords are not stored in the cloud which allows myki to auto-fill 2fa tokens. + no master pass!
Secure, intuitive to use, very responsive team, frequent updatesCons:
Occasionally minor bugs (not enough to deter me from using), not as "polished" as 1Password
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).
