We're not short of password applications on BlackBerry 10, but the one thing that bugs me with most is that if you switch devices or even do a hard reset all the information is lost. Luckily, I found Keeper - Password & Data Vault and this one seamlessly syncs with their servers meaning you can view your passwords on other devices and also on the web. If the info is backed up I'm happy. You'll also be happy as the app is available for all BlackBerry 10 devices.
Already a huge hit on Android - Keeper offers some great options and as far as I can tell there isn't a more secure way of storing your important information. Once you open the application for the first time you will be prompted to create an account. This only takes a couple of minutes and is painless. After that's done the next time you open the app you will be asked to enter your password.
Creating a new field is simple - Just tap the + icon at the top of the display. Fill in the boxes and press save and you are done. When you need to check a password and you open up the app you will be presented with the list of ones you have created. Press the one you want and the info is shown to you. The password however will look like ******* but you can press the eye icon next to it to have the password revealed. I suppose this is just in case that anyone is looking over your shoulder - or you are just paranoid!
Within the settings are a load of tweaks that can be made. There is even the option to change the theme and a nice selection of background images are available. In addition you can enable self destruct mode - where if the password is entered into the app wrong 5 times all your Keeper data is erased. At least if you lose your BlackBerry there is no way that the finder will be able to access your passwords.
Full features of the app include:
- Organize and access your passwords and private information
- Sync seamlessly across all your Smartphones, Tablets and Computers
- Create strong passwords with Keeper's instant password generator
- Auto-fill and remember new passwords for all your websites
- Share records with business teams, work groups and family members
- Enjoy peace of mind with 256-bit AES encryption which protects your data
- Stay secure with unlimited storage on Keeper's Cloud Security Vault
Being an Android port it may not be quite as smooth as a native one but it does the job perfectly. This one is a keeper for me (no pun intended) and it's free!
