Thumbs up splashID

I really want to edit my last comment about SplashID. I finally got it to work and I think I know the problem....my wifi....from what I have recently read, something about adhoc wifi connections? I was trying to sync from my laptop which has a wireless connection through a linksys router...no go. Then I tried my desktop which is directly hooked to my internet...now all is well. I hope this helps somebody who is knocking themselves silly trying to sync.
The new version of SplashID really does sync Very Easily!

Default SplashID syncing

Just as a hint for those of you having sync issues, the PC and the phone need to be on the same subnet. What splashid does is to send a broadcast packet out on its network. The PC is listening on a given port (UDP/4998 for those that really care ). So, if your PC is wired, and your phone is wifi, you will need to make sure they are on the same network.

Another gotcha is that if your PC has multiple interfaces, splashid desktop may pick the wrong one. The only workaround I know is to disable all but the interface you need, start splashid, then enable the others.

Hope this helps.

I'm going with "Secrets for Android" Roger Tawa Jr. Hopefully the UI gets updated along with more functionality.

KeePass does allow you to modify on the phone the key is not installing the 2.X version of KeePass on your PC's but rather the 1.X version. The Andoid version only reads the 2.X keypass file. It is able to edit the 1.X version. I have Keepass on my pc's and my phone. Along with dropbox to share a single password file. Now I am able to edit my passwords anywhere.

I just joined this forum so I could add a couple of comments to this thread.

First, thank you! I had purchased Keeper from Callpod last spring soon after I got the droid. It cost $30 but was fairly easy to use and nicely synced with my PC over WiFi. Then, they changed their business plan, and disabled the WiFi syncing unless I paid a yearly subscription. Wow. I decided not to do any more business with them, went in search of a new password manager, came across this thread, and elected to try KeePass.

So far, so good. In fact, real good. Per the very helpful tips, I'm using the 1.x version of KeePass on my PC and using DropBox to "sync" with my droid. As pointed out, I can edit the KeePass entries on my droid and they are "synced" to my PC via DropBox. So, thanks to all who made it very clear how to do this.

One sort of dumb question: so far, I'm leaving the KeePass file with my passwords in the DropBox folder, both on the PC and the droid, so the upload/download process is instantaneous and requires no extra steps. This appears to work fine, but I suppose I'd be smart to put a backup copy somewhere in case something bad happens. Does anyone have a comment on whether it is good/bad to keep the password file in the DropBox folder?

So, thanks again. In part, I wrote this all down in case it helps someone else get started.

I used SPB Wallet when I was a WinMo user and bought corresponding desktop sync version. SPB Wallet is truly awesome, with a password generator and autofill and autocapture. Wished they had an Android version. I'm hoping they'll go there someday!

Until then, I've been using Tiny Password Free. It uses a pattern lock master password, which I like, and can import CSV. Doesn't have a desktop version. Has a semi-auto fill. If you launch from the app, it completely fills for you. If you surf to site on a browser, you use the Tiny Password input method to help you autofill.

I'm keeping SPB Wallet on my desktop as I do 80% of my surfing on my computer. I don't go to too many sites on the droid that require passwords, except Forums and Tiny Password is fine for that.

Fully agree. I actually like lastpass VERY much but the $1 per month is not going to work with many, many people. I'd equally easily pay $20 to $30 for this (not $50 though)

I use LastPass on the desktop but also will not pay $1 a month for it on my phone.

I don't like using a web browser on a small screen and use it very little on the phone.

I was pleasantly surprised that the LastPass app for my iPad is free and it works very well.

I've been looking for a replacement for "Password Agent" because PA doesn't have mobile support. So hopefully, this will help others.

For anyone that's tried PA, it's just brain-dead simple to use. I also use Roboform for my weblogins, and I have to bookmarklet app. The only issue is, if there's no network connectivity, I can't access my roboform DB, so that's not an elegant solution.

I bought and paid for SplashID. It's not bad, but it's slower (than PA) to start, and the DB sync'ing can be problematic. Once you figure it out, it's not bad, but the idea of replicating the database between desktop and mobile version is not very elegant. And having to install a Iphone version and an Android version is a little silly. BTW, the sync'ing of DB is **SLOW**. So it was annoying for me.

I tried Keeper! but again, it seemed a little sluggish. I can't remember if it was Java based or not, but I have an aversion to anything Java do to lack of speed.

I didn't bother with Keepass because it has the same issue as roboform. I'm happy with Roboform and didn't need another web browser solution.

So I tried B-folders and it's pretty similar to PA in terms of simplicity. It doesn't do much and that's perfect for me. Sync'ing to my droid was very easy and not at all finicky like SplashID. It doesn't have Iphone/Ipad support, but it imported all the entries from SplashID just fine. So for now, B-Folders it is. For me, it's the closest thing to PA.

I've used SplashID for several years on a Palm and just moved to a Droid2, hoping I could continue. Unfortunately, you need to be on a WiFi network to sync and all of my usual locations are wired. It can't do it via Bluetooth (which it could with the Palm). Will any of the other packages with desktop versions mentioned here take a CSV file so I don't have to re-enter my database? SplashID needs to work on additional ways to sync.

Not sure what OS you're using, but 1Password will take a CSV file and they have a SplashID import format, although I've never used it. 1Password has a great Mac version and a new beta Windows version. Syncing is via using Dropbox. I'm currently using the Mac version with my Incredible and love it and just downloaded the Win version, but haven't had much opportunity to use it yet.

Just found http://www.appbrain.com/search?q=safewallet. 256Bit encrypted and syncs with Dropbox. One-time fee for Android and one-time fee for Desktop, which has 12-day trial. Lifetime compatibility guarantee regardless of Tbd technology. Might be the way of the future.

I like it so far. But hope that they can set it to Autofill when you click on the associated link.

Lastpass does this, but uses their own browser, and they have a recurring annual fee, whcih I don't like.

Lastpass is what I use to generate and secure my passwords. Since I have dozens of forums and websites that are password protected I wanted an app that would work between my PC and smartphone. Lastpass fit my requirements and it is very convenient and secure.

Just waiting for Dropbox for Android now. You can download files through the website, so you can "update" your database as needed.

Try SugarSync. They have an Android version already out. But I prefer Dropbox over SugarSync, so I'm waiting.
Ok, So I'm lost...I've been using Keepass, but how on earth do you sync to dropbox and use it on android? I also have Keepass app for my android device...

Just keep your Keepass file in Dropbox and open it from there on both your main machine and on your Android.

Ya, I literally just figured it out before I got the response. So I guess now all I gotta do is start working on getting my all my passwords changed to something new and saving them in Keepass.

Thanks for all the help! I LOVE these forums.

Huge SplashID fan here; like others, dating back to my Palm days.

Love the syncability and password generation. Cross platform possibilities is a plus.

Hmm, thanks. 1Password looks much more polished (and faster) than B-folders. My search may continue (after having paid for SplashID and B-Folders!

1password is a excellent app for mac computers, iPod touch and iPhone so I imagine after they get the android app fully refined that it will be great too. Even in beta form it works better than any others I have tried.

B-Folders syncs like no other and is the perfect outliner - nested folders, peer-to-peer sync, no clouds, no monthly fees. Ah, and I use to sync between multiple computers - it just works :-)
Now that sounds ugly. What OS are you on? It has been quite reliable for me.

And, yes, B-Folders sounds intriguing.

The only problem with 1Password right now is that the search function does not extend to the NOTES field. And the sync'ing is nowhere as smooth as B-Folders. I mean it's pretty easy if you decide to use Box.net, but I don't. I actually use an ftp server on my Droid and use goodsync to sync up the files. But hardly as smooth as B-Folders which syncs via wifi. Both are good programs. The auto fill option of 1Password is not as useful for me since I'm a roboform user.

Found a reliable way to ensure syncing on SplashID if anyone needs some pointers. Figured I'd post in case anyone ever searches...

Default Record-based sync with offline use

I investigated every password manager in this thread and none of them have the features I want:
1. Android and Windows desktop version.
2. Android and Windows sync automatically with no user interaction.
3. Sync copies only changed passwords, not the whole password file.
4. No yearly subscription cost

Feature 3 is important because I don't have regular data access with my phone. I pay $1.50 for a day of access occasionally (T-Mobile pre-paid), but otherwise it usually only has internet access when it's at home connected to wifi. Therefore it's likely I'll make changes to the password database and when I come home I may change the desktop database before a sync occurs, meaning neither database file can be copied over the other without losing something.

I suppose I could go with one of the dropbox sync options and hope dropbox does a sync when I get a data connection before I make changes to the other database, but it sounds unreliable.

Here's my brief notes about each password manager in case it's useful to anyone:

o OI Safe
- Android only - no desktop.
- Been using this for a couple years and it's fairly good. Some bugs have lingered for well over a year with no fix, like about 15% of the time when I type the correct password it returns to the password screen as if I hadn't done anything (if I type the wrong password it shakes and says wrong password). Also, every once in a long time it keeps passwords open forever instead of timing out and locking them.
- I saw a post somewhere that I can't find again that said the version of AES used is a fast but low security version that could be broken with some brute force effort.

o Keepass Features - KeePass
- Old and popular open source desktop app. Android has support only for writing to 1.x DBs but 2.x has been around for awhile.
- Sync using dropbox: How to Use Dropbox as the Ultimate Password Syncer
- Sync overwrites entire DB so if you make changes to different passwords in two places, changes in one database will be lost.
- Plugins for 2.x Desktop database are able to sync on a per-password basis but there is no Android sync yet.

o SplashID
- $10 Android, $20 desktop. Syncs, but only by logging in to both clients and clicking sync.
- Lots of user complaints about slow bug fixes, slow performance. One bad bug is if you log in, kill the app, then next time you open the DB it needs no password to see.

o B-Folders
- Free android, $29.95 Desktop. Syncs, but only by logging in to one client and clicking sync.
- Tested and android has good performance.
- Support responded saying auto sync is on their list of features to add but "not at the top". He also said they're working on a mysterious and exciting new sync feature but did not give details. Since they plan to add auto sync some day I may go with this solution for now.

o mSecure
- $5 android, $15 Desktop.
- Syncs, but only by logging in on Android and clicking sync (if I'm reading the user guide correctly).
- Sync requires installing Apple's Bonjour on Windows which I don't like having to do.
- There was a comment on the android app store that it put passwords in an XML file that showed the password when viewed with an external editor. This may just be someone who exported their passwords and got confused, but is worth investigating.

o SecForms
- Syncs, but only by logging in to both clients and clicking sync.
- Free android, free PC unless you want to sync, which costs $20.

o Lastpass https://lastpass.com/
- $1/mo to sync to their servers

o Keeper https://www.callpod.com/products/keeper
- The auto sync will initiate on login and when a record is deleted, edited, or saved which might be an okay solution if it syncs individual records.
- Syncs via wifi on local network or to their servers.
- $30/yr! Apparently there was a non-subscription version as recently as Sept 2010 so I asked if I could continue to use wifi sync after 1 year but they said no. Someone on the forums said even if you purchased it before Sept your wifi sync is going to stop working after a year - that seems dishonest.
- A user claims it doesn’t properly sync delete operations…

o Secrets secrets-for-android - Project Hosting on Google Code
- No desktop version, but free and open source.
- Can keep 10 backups on sd card that could be synced using dropbox.

o RoboForm
- Has android and desktop.
- Somehow syncs using their online server but costs $10 for first year, $20 additional years.

o TinyPassword Tiny Couch - Tiny Password - Password Management for Android OS
- Pretty cool but no desktop app.

o eWallet eWallet Viewer for Android - Password Manager and Digital Wallet
- Can only be edited on PC. Android app can only view.

o Moxier Wallet Moxier Wallet | Secure Password Manager | FAQ
- May support auto sync but requires $20/yr subscription.

o Wallet for Android http://timothyjc.blogspot.com/2010/12/wallet-for-android.html
- Android-only app, no desktop
- Built in option to sync to Dropbox

o 1Password Welcome to Agile Web Solutions
- Supposedly there’s an android version now but it isn’t listed on their site.
- Syncs only entire DB via Dropbox

o Ascendo Datavault
- They're working on an android version but have no public beta yet.
- Asked about auto sync, no response so far

o SafeWallet SBSH Software for iPhone, iPod Touch, BlackBerry, Windows Phone, Smartphone and Symbian S60
- Supports sync, but not automatic.

o Facile Password Manager
- Android only

o Universal Password Manager
- Open source creation of some guy. You can have the PC or Android version place a copy of the DB on a web server you’ve configured and it will download an updated copy from there each time you make a change and upload after each change. This might be an okay solution except if I make changes with no data connection (if it even lets me), then I run the risk of making other changes on the desktop before I remember to sync Android and one or the other will lose modifications I made.
- The android UI is very basic. Pressing back button after editing a password discards edits with no warning.
- No import option in Android – not sure about PC.

Default No DataVault beta

Based on this post, many of you have emailed asking for the beta. You have all gotten the same response from me...your email is on file, I'll let you know when a beta is available.

I don't know who Tato is, but he does not have a beta (he has only 2 posts). We have not given out a beta yet. I have a list of people who have emailed asking about DataVault, and i will be contacting you, as promised, when the beta is ready for public testing.

We are hard at work on the Android version of DataVault, and do hope to have that public beta available in the not too distant future.

Please follow us on Twitter for news. We do appreciate all the interest, but as of today, there is no public beta.

Thank you.

why not create a password protected and encrypted Word 2007 Document and save all of your passwords to it? then use Documents To Go to open it on your Android and Word 2007 to open it on your PC. lastly - create a free Dropbox account and place the Word file in your Dropbox folder and access it from anywhere in the world from any device. this way you won't be at the mercy of some mom & pop proprietary black box app.

here is how i set up my simple free flow encrypted password protected MS Word Document. you can use "DATA" as the file name or whatever you like. i'd keep it vauge so as to not make it a target. the rest are the headings for each category. within each category is a simple sentence for each vendor containing the applicable information - vendor name, account #, PIN, username, password, telephone number, etc. each vendor has a single line. use the CAPITAL LETTER headings for each category to make them easy to find and to keep organized. enjoy.

----------------------

"DATA"


DEBIT AND CREDIT CARDS


ATM PINS


CHECKING AND SAVINGS ACCOUNTS


ONLINE BANKING


INVESTMENTS


COMPUTER


EMPLOYERS


TECHNOLOGY PROVIDERS


UTILITIES


AUTOMOBILE


INSURANCE


RETAILERS AND SERVICES


VALUABLES


AIRLINES AND TRAINS


HOTELS


EMAIL ACCOUNTS

After years of being an avid user of eWallet on other devices, I no longer use them due to their lack of support with Android (viewer only, no editing on device). A phone conversation with their tech support was less than enthusiastic. "We have no plans for a full-featured Android app at this time as we use Macs here." Amazing.

I now use mSecure (msevensoftware.com) which works very well, extremely simple UI and syncs wirelessly with the desktop version. One can create/edit their own categories and icons. Support is responsive and quick.

I have tried the password managers that have been listed. None of them quite did it for me. The closest that I have found is "Wallet" by Tim Clark. I like that it is customizable and will backup to Dropbox.

OK, guys, I have been lurking and reading.

here is my question, I am getting the I-500 from US Cellular and have been a BB user for three plus years and love the PW Keeper in it,

Now I really dislike taking the time to input all 87 of them into an Android and so on, so is there a free app that lets me install it on the Android and my laptop so I can at least use my laptop to manage the files in it and sync OTA,

see my post above. why not copy and paste into an MS Word Document and use the above process? then never be trapped on a platform-specific app again.

Would prefer not to create it in Google if I could,

And I want to clarify, I just want the ability to create user names and passwiord entries and sync them with the phone, OTA
Just like BB PWkeeper but BB doesn't have a wireless sync option,

I do not want the ability to auto fill out any names or passwords, this is just for my information to be stored for me if needed.

So I downloaded Universal Password Manager for my laptop and it doesn't do anything or open up, what am I doing wrong.

I have it on the Android now also and only put in two entries because I want to see how they are going to communicate together.

HELP

Apart from the ability to sync with phone versions of the software, what advantages are there of using password managing software over a password-encrypted Word document? Word 2007+ seems to be secure enough (How safe is Word 2007 encryption?), so am I missing something?

I agree... a Word file could do the trick.

One thing that I use heavily in SplashID is the password generator. It is a handy utility.

I use xmarks (previously foxmarks) on linux and windows, and I noticed they do an android version, but it is only for subscribers.
Xmarks Blog Xmarks for Android is here!

I also use superchromepass/supergenpass to generate unique passwords for each site I visit, so that means I can have a separate window on SGP mobile (html saved locally for desktop) where I simply put in the domain, hit generate and can then copy/pase the password to the website.

Note that supergenpass is not secure in firefox due to the way the javascript variables in supergenpass exposes the master password to the web page.

Default BioWallet Signature + BioWallet2Browser

Hi guys, I have been using BioWallet Signature (free) as a password manager for quite a long time and I'm very happy with it.

In addition, you can protect your sensitive information with a master password or with your handwritten signature, which is very cool!

Now I'm also using biowallet2browser, a Chrome extension that connects to my phone and autofills the username and password fields of the websites. It's really fast and the passwords are always stored on my own phone.

Is anyone here using it also?
