SplashID provides an elegant, seamless way to lock confidential information.
Unlike many people, I’ve not grabbed onto the encrypted password craze. In this world of stolen identities and compromised security information, I should be more concerned. And even though, I’ve not really be enthused about embracing encrypted security on my iOS devices or laptop, I do see the need in the market for it. I’ve recently been introduced to a no frills, easy to use password management system that actually makes me excited about protecting my information. SplashID provides an elegant, seamless way to lock confidential information.
For more than 12 years, SplashID has been providing a way for users to keep their confidential information safe. With more than 1 million users, SplashID has indeed shown what kind of stamina it has in this space. New users of SplashID will be treated to version 8, the latest upgrade for the security software. I’ve used other digital wallet solutions before, but none of them seemed ot click with me. Therefore, I never seemed to use them. As a result, I was ‘that’ person who kept passwords written on small pieces of paper or worse, in a spreadsheet on my computer. I know this is a big ‘no-no,’ but it’s what made sense to me at the time. Fortunately, SplashID is making it very easy for me to cross over.

One of the best features of SplashID and something that I’m always on the lookout for is TouchID compatibility. When you start using SplashID, you create an account and set a master password. Then, you can enable TouchID for unlocking the app. This makes the login process more secure and far easier.
I also love that what ever you create in one platform is accessible through all platforms you wish to use. For example, I started my SplashID safe on my iPhone. Then I moved over to my laptop to enter more information. Whatever was entered on my laptop, was available on my iPhone within a matter of moments.
I think my only ‘complaint’ if you want to call it that, of SplashID is that you have to manually enter all your passwords and usernames prior to really using the app. To test it out, I only entreated my Delta Sky Miles account. The access across platforms, cloud syncing and automated backup are included with the Pro version of the app. While SplashID is free to download, the Pro upgrade retails for $1.99 per month or $19.99 per year. In my opinion, it is worth it to pay for the yearly subscription because with it, you can also share SplashID records with other SplashID users. So, if your significant other wanted to use your Amazon Prime membership, you could easily send them your secure log in in formation from SplashID and you could keep it private since the sharing is through SplashID.
I can recommend SplashID for anyone who is hesitant to start using a password management system. It’s secure, safe and easy to use. For more information, visit SplashID.com.
