Here’s an app that includes a fabulous visual interface, superb usability, and many refinements not found in other “password protection” applications. Security Organizer, developed by Appicition, protects valuable passwords by using the iPhone’s internal keychain encryption so you can rest assured all your information will stay safe n’ sound.
The app launches with a 4 columned numeric lock system, making for 10,000 possible security combinations. Upon selecting a 4 digit password, you gain access to the main menu. One of the handy security features keeps track of incorrect password attempts. After 8 unsuccessful attempts all internal information is automatically deleted. Another bit of added security is the Extra or Light option in the settings menu. The Extra setting enables a password prompt when ANY data is accessed in the application. The Light setting password prompts only when the app is opened. There’s also a Timeout option that re-locks the app when unattended; choice from 1 to 5 minute durations.
Security Organizer does a great job of menu organization so you can find your data in an instant; no fumbling though multiple menu layouts or cumbersome navigation controls. Easy-to-follow color coded tab placement on the right side makes for convenient access to six categories: Banking, Retirement, Business, Personal, Security, and Vehicles. It pretty much has all the major categories covered, though if by chance you wanted to add an additional category you are unable to do so. My only complain regarding the menu is the home button placement in the upper right corner. It was quite small and seemed forced in with the other tabs. An upper or lower position in the center of the page may be a better place and easier to access.
Each category has preset sections for you to store information (for example Banking has a Bank Account, Check Book, Foreign Account, and Debit/Credit Card section). These predetermined sub categories are great for adding in information fast – no setup required! But again, there is no option to add a custom category to the list. This is a missing feature that would come in handy, especially for miscellaneous passwords you’d like to log in the Personal category.
Having one portable place to store valuable passwords and other information does come in handy from time to time, especially if you have tons of passwords to deal with like i do. Security Organizer really shines in overall layout. It has a convenient menu design and great graphics, but what really stands out is the ease of use and speedy access to logging and/or retrieving information. The $3.99 price-point puts it somewhere in the middle of the pack if your looking for a “password protection” application. One big plus is Security Organizer does NOT charge for monthly fees like some of the other apps in this field. What would make this app supreme is the ability to customize/add new categories and sub-categories, though even without this feature it still stands out as one of the better password security apps out on the market. If you need quick access to private information, stay organized by keeping all passwords in one place and check out Security Organizer.
