    I'm debating on giving other apps a test because this task is more difficult than it needs to be. You currently have to switch keyboards, unlock, find the correct one if it does not, login, then switch the keyboard back. I'm tired just saying that!

    Never heard of it. Chinese? If this one is causing problems, try another one. LastPass is often recommended on here.

    I used to use 1pass, but switched to LastPass earlier this year. Haven't regretted it yet.

    LastPass uses an overlay for quick mobile entry..right?

    I suppose you can call it an overlay.
    It depends on how you set it up for each individual site yisit independently. that is why I like it so much.

    I set it for banks as "no autofill", and it carries to all of my devices with the same settings for "that website".

    for the bank sites, if I can't remember the longish passwords, I just open LastPass and look it up, then let it fill in the blanks just that one time...

    gives me a bit more security even on my own computers....
    the average person setting down to my PC is not going to be able to get into my accounts without a lot of effort to figure out where I hid the passwords.

    in addition to all of that, I have my Alerts set on all of my accounts to send SMS and email messages for each and every transaction. Debit, AutoPay, CashWithDrawal.... etc...
    or deposits from my pension checks.
