Life used to be so simple didn't it? Back in the early days of the computer generation the only things we really had to worry about were 'spam' and viruses. We seem to have eradicated most of them these days but now we seem to have a much more insidious problem - people cyber hacking into our emails, our bank accounts and our social media networks and causing massive problems. Whether they are cloning our identities or attempting to steal our hard earned bitcoins - it's all bad. According to the American President it could be the Russians, the North Koreans, the Chinese or a 400 lb hacker sitting in his bedroom. So basically, he's got no idea where the next attack is coming from.

Consequently, we've all been forced to upgrade our online security. First it was passwords (which they advise us that they should be unique for each site, of course) then there was the sensitive, secret questions. Was you mother born in Louisville or Shelbyville? Did you put Arsenal as your favorite soccer team or was it LA Galaxy? It's not easy to remember them all. Do you keep a list of passwords that's accessible to everyone on your smartphone? Not a good idea if you lose your phone or its stolen. Do you keep them in the cloud? Er...I don't think so. So, the answer seems to be a secure password manager.

PassVult is probably the best answer. It is the password storage app of choice for those who value security and privacy. It's a simple, intuitive app for iPhone that puts you - as the owner - back in charge of password protection and features AES encryption so you are the only person who can access your private information. The app localises all your important data on one individual iDevice and keeps you safe from any possible vendor breaches. None of your personal data is ever transferred across the cloud or over the internet so it's yours - and yours alone - forever!

PassVult is a simple, intuitive password manager for your iPhone. Its main goal is to give users back the ownership of their password data by localising all of the data on an individual and ultra secure iDevice that only the owner can access. Within its secure walls you can easily store and manage all your various passwords, secret questions (and answers,) physical codes and credit card numbers. The app can also generate complex and secure passwords for your accounts as well as checking your email - or any other if it comes to that - against historic breaches to see if your account may have been breached by hackers (are you listening Hillary?) All of this data is stored in a local database that is AES encrypted and all features are password protected by a master key only known by you.

PassVult began life the way many great apps do - out of necessity. The developer had over 150 different accounts and services that all required some form of password protection and it was impossible to keep track of them all. He had considered using one of the many password manager apps on the market but, as a security consultant himself, he found it hard to agree to having his private information whizzing around in the cloud or on an obscure server somewhere. Besides, many of these tools had had their own security 'issues' in the past. Consequently, he went about making his own. What he has created is a very simple and powerful weapon that succeeds in keeping important information secure and away from prying eyes. It comes in two different versions. First up, there's a free PassVult 'lite' version available which is ad-supported and gives you the ability to store your passwords securely. The full version can be downloaded for less than three bucks and gives you all the other features too. PassVult is available now on the App Store.
