Keep Your Accounts Safe with PassLock

Do you keep a lot of passwords for an even greater number of online accounts? If so, you’ve probably realized just how useful password managers really are. However, a troubling fact for many is how several password managers keep a cloud-based backup of the password database.

With that issue in mind, XDA forum member vostdev has created PassLock, a new and purely local password manager that keeps your passwords safe through the use of AES-256 bit encryption. In addition to simply protecting your accounts, this application allows you to group passwords and even import / export your database. Bye-bye cloud!

In the words of the developer:

Since I have a lot of passwords I needed a password manager which will fit my needs. I did not want a manager that keeps my passwords safe on their servers but I want to export my db so I can have a backup! That’s why I created PassLock password manager and I release it to the market for everyone.

PassLock keeps your passwords safe using AES-256bit and is free.

– You can group your passwords
– You can change/edit your records and also transfer them to an other group
– You can change your master pass
– You can import/export your database

Anyone that will give it a shot please leave feedback. Thanks!

Continue on to the application thread to start getting your security in check!

Google Photos ‘Unlimited’ Storage Reportedly Being Capped

When Google Photos was announced, many of us thought very highly of the idea. It seemed like Google had taken what they learned from G+ Photos and added some extra touches to polish the experience, making it something that more people were likely to actually utilize. Now however, the much-lauded 'Unlimited Storage' element may not be quite what it seemed. Here's what we can gather so far...   Reports have come in from multiple G+ and Reddit users who have attempted to back up a...
