Version 5.2.39
Review by Wesley Little

The is the BEST Password Manager - I have used this for years and the latest update is awesome! Since the latest update, I don’t need to use Drop Box to sync all my devises, I just use iCloud! It works without any issues at all. I have Data Vault on my MacBook Air, my iPad Mini and my iPhone. What is great about this is, I can make a change to any of my devises and it will sync the other devises for me, always keeping my important and up to date information on what ever devise I am using at the time, it doesn’t get any better than that for me. It is also very secure with the 128 bit encryption standard and the premium level allows a 256 bit encryption to keep your passwords safe! The last but most important item for me is the owner of this software company. Marc is incredible, he is ALWAYS available and works hard to make sure you are satified. Over the years, I have had questions or due to my mistake not understood a feature of this product. Marc has gone above and beyond to make sure that his product is working correctly and I am utilizing all the features of this software. I can honestly say that he is the easiest and best developer I have EVER worked with on the app’s that I own. I would highly recomend you buying this app if you are in need of an affordable and easy to use Password Manager.

Version 4.6.7
Review by All nicknames are in use

Promising app, but VERY POOR tech support - I tried loads of password managers for my iPhone before settling on DataVault. And for awhile, I was completely satisfied with both the iOS and the OS X versions. A few months ago, however, when I synced the two devices, I realized that the desktop version no longer registered any of the new entries that I had made on my iPhone. I tried deleting the Mac app and reinstalling. Didn't fix it. Then v.4.6.7 came out. But instead of fixing the previous version's bugs, the desktop verision wouldn't even open anymore!! Initially, tech support was very responsive. But after trying numerous fixes (from the FAQ's section, tech support, as well as my own ideas), and getting nowhere, tech support just stopped responding to my emails. It's as if they think, "If we simply ignore this customer long enough, he and his problem will just go away." I'd really hate to have to switch password manager apps, especially since the iOS version works so well. But if I can't even open the desktop version, let alone sync info between the two apps, then I guess I'll have to switch. And all because of lousy tech support!

Review by dsmithy

Saves My Sanity - I have been using Data Vault since 2012 for all my family’s passwords. This app is the only reason that all my remaining brain cells are not dedicated to expired passwords. Thanks Data Vault! I still have a brain! There are several specific reasons I am such a fan: 1. I use the password generator to generate at least 14 digit passwords that I am comfortable are random and secure. The process is effortless and satisfying. 2. I am comfortable with long, random passwords only because I use Data Vault synced across two Mac laptops and two iPhones. I don’t need to remember passwords because they are always available easily and quickly. Synching is also effortless and satisfying. 3. I understand and comply with the now almost universal caution not to reuse passwords across different websites. That means that I now have more than 90 active passwords and Data Vault’s ability to organize, alphabetize and logically present them means I can have the app open while I pay bills and not be slowed down with password mania. I could go on, but the point is that passwords are important and Data Vault makes their management easy. I am a long-time, grateful user of this app.

Version 7.1.19
Review by Rota Bill

Password Manager Data Vault is Excellent - I have Password Manager Data Vault on my iPhone SE Max, iPad Pro, iPad Mini and a MacBook Pro. They all work as advertised and synch flawlessly using iCloud with allmy devices. This App is good value for the price. I don't just use it for passwords but for many other bits I need to recall from time to time. I'm 82 closing on 83 and these days with having to change passwords frequently it's not so easy for me to remember the change. I always write down the new password that needs to be changed first then immediately after effecting the change I edit that password in Data Vault. This is my goto App.

Review by Pentax12

STAY AWAY FROM THIS APP - Read the product description extremely careful as it’s very misleading. I reached out to customer support about the issue and they simply said you should of read it better. Alex from customer service was extremely rude. There’s tons of other apps I choose over this one after how I have been treated. Extremely dissappointed and I expected better for the amount of money.
