About

Valt is a visual approach to passwords. With Valt you get the security of locking your data behind a truly random master password without the hassle of having to memorize one.

I've been a 1password user for a long time (2008!) and love it for my team password management. But it's gotten crowded with team, family, and personal passwords.

Valt has been a fantastic addition to my password management system—all my personal passwords are in the valt (ha) now, and it's been rock solid.

Pros:

Remembering photos is simple, and Valt makes it even easier to memorize your master password

Cons:

No Android app... yet!

I've been using the production version of Valt on my Mac and iPhone for about a month now. It's interface is clean and simple to use.

I'm excited for integrations to migrate existing password bases over!

The mac application has a simple verification process through the iPhone app which I found really neat. Overall its a great launch, and I'm excited to see the product mature.

It's not quite as well integrated into my flows as say "Google Passwords" but that's a matter of time and use. For the true security folks out there, this is more secure than a passphrase and easier to remember.

Pros:

Never forget your master password, much more secure

Cons:

Sometimes a bit tedious

Pros:

Fresh take on password storage

Image encoding really works! I only had to train myself once and haven't had a problem logging in since.

Pros:

Insanely easy to use and log in.

Great sense of comfort knowing my master password can't be hacked.

Love the look and feel.

Cons:

Doesn't work on my PC yet. Hopefully soon?

I find this really helpful for websites that log into so infrequently that I always end up changing my password each time I try to get in. Now it doesn't take me 20 minutes to log into my student loan or TurboTax!

Pros:

Really helpful and easy to use

Cons:

Super easy to remember a collection of photos rather than a set of passwords or even a master password. It was a bit unclear that I need to have the Mac app in order for the Chrome extension to work but the Valt team was super helpful and guided me through getting everything up and running. I'm sure they'll make the UX of downloading and hooking up all of the apps/extensions much better as time goes on. Great product!

Pros:

Selecting the right photos is almost muscle memory. Better than trying to remember a password.

Cons:

Unclear that you need to have the Mac app for the Chrome extension to work.

Image based password management completely changes the game, everything else is just more painful long passwords.

Pros:

A whole new way to manage passwords

Cons:

Moving off your old crummy solution
