mSecure for Mac serves as a protected repository for log-in details, credit card numbers, Social Security numbers, and other similar information that should be readily available but protected from unauthorized access. This standalone application comes with 256-bit Blowfish encryption.
Highly intuitive user interface: Since every function is presented neatly, using mSecure for Mac is a breeze. You can organize your information into groups and conveniently mark your "favorites," as well as use different icons to find entries more quickly.
Powerful search function: You don't need to go through folders or hierarchies to find your stored data.
Templates for faster input and the ability to print: You can create custom templates with an unlimited number of fields, as well as print a copy of all your saved information to create a physical backup. The 19 standard templates that come with the app look great.
Password generator: mSecure helps you come up with secure passwords. The built-in password generator has a useful "password strength" meter.
iCloud and Dropbox synchronization and data importing: You can access your repository through other devices by having everything synchronized via Dropbox or iCloud. You can move data you stored in other software through worksheets or directly when the formats are compatible.
Does not automatically save or ask you to save log-in details: It's a little disappointing that the application does not provide the option to quickly save usernames and passwords in the same way many Web browsers do.
Can't execute instant log-ins: mSecure is a great tool for storing log-in details, but you cannot instantly fill username and password fields with it. This can be frustrating if you're used to quick log-ins via your browser.
mSecure for Mac can be a good choice if you want to reliably store log-in information and other important security data. It's not free, but it offers an extensive range of functions to justify the price. Using it is also relatively easy.
