Review: WISeID provides a secure place to store and access all of your account info.

Quickly access all of your sensitive accounts with one master password on your iPhone or iPod touch.

WISeID creates a secure and encrypted space on your mobile device from which you can quickly access all of your accounts. Because only you can log in to WISeID with your master password and pattern combination, you can store even the passwords to your bank and credit card accounts in this handy app. No matter where you are, you can access all of your accounts securely, and you will be automatically logged in without having to remember the passwords for each account, individually.

To set up WISeID, you'll first have to select a master password. Your next security measure involves drawing a pattern on a 3X3 grid of dots the app produces. After entering your password every time you log in, you will also have to reproduce the pattern. There is also face recognition security available, but it is optional. It also takes some time and repeated exposures for the face recognition to work properly, but since you can skip it any time you want to, you don't have to worry about being locked out of your accounts.

WISeID is free to download and use, and a backup and restore feature is available as an in-app purchase for $3.99. This program works well, and includes templates for logging in to social networks securely, as well. All of your log-ins can be categorized, so they're easy to find and you can even send encrypted messages. This app is certainly worth a try, especially if you're tired of trying to remember all of your passwords.
