Password manager mSecure reaches v3.0, adds cloud syncing

updated 08:30 pm EDT, Wed September 14, 2011

Dropbox, iCloud compatibility, Blowfish encryption

Portland, Oregon-based mSeven Software has announced the launch of mSecure 3.0, a cross-platform password and security manager for Mac, Windows, iOS and Android systems. The new version offers 17 pre-categorized groups for passwords, as well as the ability to generate new custom groups and favorites for fast access. It also features improved data security when syncing with "cloud"-based services such as Dropbox and (when available) iCloud.

The mSecure product distinguishes itself from its main competitors by offering more pre-set categories of passwords -- things like club membership numbers, loyalty cards, frequent flier info, prescription data and more. It uses 256-bit Blowfish encryption throughout the app for extra security, and is offered in versions across most major computer and mobile platforms, keeping everything in sync across many devices.

Backups can also be sent to -- or restored from -- e-mail for iOS and Android for painless restores without having to dock the device back to a computer. In addition, the app now offers favorites and other ways of accessing the most-used data more quickly, and sells for less than most other competing products.

For a limited time, mSeven is offering introductory sale prices on mSecure for iOS and Android. The iOS version works universally with the iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad, and is available from the App Store. The Android version is available from Google Marketplace, the Amazon App Store and the Verizon Media Store. All mobile versions of mSecure are on sale for $7 (normally $10).

The Mac version of mSecure is available from the Mac App Store for $15 or directly from the developer for $20. It works with Intel Macs running OS X 10.4 or higher, including Lion. The Windows version is also available from the company website and also costs $20. It requires Windows XP SP2 or later, and can run in 64-bit mode in Vista or later.
