Veteran user, since first version of software. Its the ultimate password/key management tool and last you'll need. On top of all, this fabulous ultimate software is free for use and cloud sync is super cheap.

I still think author should allow users to be able to opt to trade some of security for comfort by implementing support for Touch ID and option for users to enable it.

Ivan Nikolić has used this product for more than 5 years on most of platforms in parallel (iPhone, Android, Windows/Chrome).

Pros:

Truly a gem - cross-platform, open-source, minimalistic, great security, cloud sync, free

Cons:

Lack of Touch-ID support on iPhone

🙏 Please enable Touch ID
Touch ID would be awesome!

I packaged it in a Docker image and hosted in LightSail in AWS, but now I started using their SaaS, since it's cheaper. I value their vision of open-source.

Pros:

It's open source. You can host it yourself.

Cons:

None that I'm aware of. It works even without Google Play Services.

Padlock is one of the first apps I install on my devices, because it makes my life so much easier. I can’t imagine a day without Padlock the same way I can’t imagine a day without my address book.

Pros:

open source, clean interface, straight development, great sync

Cons:

I don’t know.

I started using this on my phone back when it was free, I enjoyed it and thought that $4/m wasn't bad at all for cloud storage. I moved to native apps when it was announced that Chrome apps were being deprecated and I really like them. It's been a great experience so far. The app is fast and my accounts are more secure (or at least have much more complex passwords) because of it.

Pros:

I like that it is open source and cross platform (I use Windows, OSX, and Android apps)

Cons:

With the release of v2, it lost a little bit of the hotkey navigation that the Chrome app had. I liked not having to leave my keyboard

Hey Sean, thanks for your review! I think it's worth pointing out that we recently changed the price for Padlock Cloud to $1 / month! Maybe you missed the announcement? https://padlock.io/news/pc-price...

I really like how quick and easy the application is to use. Its simplistic design made it easy to figure out how to input information and start using it. I would recommend it to my friends and am excited to use it.

Pros:

Easy to use, like the fact that it is open source, very quick and responsive design

Cons:

None that I have found yet

This app is great!

Pros:

open source, secure

Cons:

I can‘t think of anything

Too bad it is not clear before logging in that the Padlock cloud is not free.

Pros:

Minimalist and cross platform

Cons:

Free unless you need to sync across devices...

First password manager I could get me spouse to use after years of trying.

Pros:

Easy to use! Not just for security specialists who already know everything.

Cons:

On Win7 the "recently used" entries don't also show up in the alphabetical list. I would rather just have an alphabetical list.

Try it :) you are going to love having tons of passwords and having full control of them.

Pros:

Free version is great, payed is not only affordable but great!

Cons:

autofill features

I love how easy it is to run my own server, and there is an official Linux release!

Pros:

Open source, data stored on server & client, backup/restore is easy, good syncing across many clients making changes, runs on ALL platforms

Cons:

Sorry, I really can't think of any

Padlock is a great alternative to 1Password without any bloated functionality. It's simple to use and it does its job very well - saves passwords and other secret credentials in one place.

Pros:

Very intuitive, easy to use, and flexible.

Cons:

Can't disable some notification popping up.

Love it

Pros:

Great open source software

Cons:

Needs a URL field that turns into a link!

I've been using Padlock for a while and opted to start paying to use the cloud storage. The UI is great. I don't think there are any major hangups. There are a few features that I would like to see implemented like keyboard nav and fingerprint auth, but it's great either way.

Pros:

I enjoy using it across all of my devices. It's very easy to generate passwords and categorize accounts.

Cons:

In v1 there was keyboard navigation so I could copy/paste without ever using the mouse but sadly it was lost.
