mSecure – A Great Password Manager

Our friend Carol, helped find this gem of a program. mSecure is a nice password manager program from mSeven software. This program will store you information and sync with their servers. It uses the ultra-secure 256-bit blowfish encryption to protect personal information such as account numbers, usernames, passwords and more. It is available to Windows, Mac, Android and iDevice users. Here are some important features –

It will not store your password on their servers – staff does not have access to your account and cannot reset your password.

If you forget your password, you lose access to your stored data and have to start over again. You can set a password hint to help you remember your password.

If someone tries accessing your account, i.e. after stealing your phone or computer, you can set mSecure to destroy your data after a set number of attempts. This will prevent password crack software from trying indefinitely.

Auto-lock features to close the program, preventing people from seeing your data even after an initial login.

It allows you to back up your encrypted data to SD or via email. Again, the data is encrypted by your personal password so no one can gain access to it.

mSeven Software is based in the US, ensuring they conform to privacy laws and the data is stored in the USA (they are located just outside Portland, OR)

We ran through some different tests and scenarios and I appreciate Carol’s help in determining just how safe the data stored with this company really is. Check out their web page and if you are in the market for a great password manager, give it a try – http://msevensoftware.com/
