LockBox is a security app for the iPhone that creates and stores chains of information that would be otherwise insecure in a notepad file. The app does this with a password up front and individual files that contain whatever data you want to store in them. While the app runs smoothly, it lacks a lot of the newer features in other security apps that streamline the process of creating new entries and saving them for future access.

When you open LockBox for the first time, you can log in with the default 0000 password. Be sure to change this as the app doesn't prompt you to do so right away. You can start creating new entries here by pressing the "Add" button, but each entry is manually created. There are categories that will change the icon associated with the entries, but no templates for entering that information. The app is fairly responsive, however, so the process doesn't take long and your entries can be reorganized at any time from within the app. There is also an auto-sort feature if you want to organize them by certain criteria. The interface is functional; and while the app doesn't take advantage of the iPhone 5's larger screen, it runs smoothly, nonetheless.

LockBox doesn't include import options for photos or videos, and the entry process requires a lot of manual work. But if you need something basic for storing passwords and bank account information in, don't need a Web backup, and don't need the added premium tools like import/export, this app will get the job done in its free iteration. There are better, more robust apps out there, however, so evaluate your needs before entering your data.

Developer's Description

LockBox lets you store and protect sensitive info such as credit card numbers, bank accounts, passwords, pin numbers, private notes, and any other secret information on your iPhone or iPod Touch. New. You can export/backup data securely via a WiFi connection to your computer. Remember to do this regularly. Looking for more? The Pro version is now available as well. The new Pro version will feature bulk data importing, stronger encryption, no ads and unlimited sub-fields per entry. New: Check out our new, fun photo sharing app called Rotzy. Use it to keep information handy and also protected at the same time. All data is encrypted and protected by your secret code, so only you have access to it, even if you let your friends borrow your phone to make a call or browse online. This is the kind of information that you want easy access to while you are on the go, but find it hard to recall just when you need it. For example, I always forget my bank account number right when I need to deposit a check at the bank. Best of all, its free. Important backup information: remember to sync and do a backup of your data through the LockBox app before updating to newer versions. You never know what might happen to your phone in the middle of a sync : -) Also, the iTunes backup is not enough in some cases especially when you have to replace your phone or reset it, so make sure you use the WiFi backup method to protect your data. Its the only way to make sure your data is safe when doing a sync or restore for your device.
