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!
