Good news for the users of several Android devices along with a few desktop computers – a free version of the Cloud KeyRing password manager has been released on Google Play store. Want to know more about making the most of cloud computing? Our friends at Vesk Virtual Desktops can help with all your remote access needs.
The app stores personal account data in an encrypted database located in your Dropbox cloud storage area and is known for a “one-look” user interface.
The quick text filter helps to find the required account record in seconds. This kind of search approach is completely different from the categorization and sorting in hundreds of traditional password managers presented on Google Play.
Cloud KeyRing uses Dropbox as a main storage for encrypted account data and is designed to use one Dropbox account on several phones and tablets simultaneously. Combined with the crossplatform KeyRingDesktop written in java for Windows, Linux and OS X support, this app grants availability, fault tolerance and automatic synchronization of a single password database all over your desktop computers, smartphones and tablets. The database is stored on the Dropbox cloud storage in the app folder “/Apps/Cloud KeyRing Password Manager/”. Place KeyRingDesktop.jar there and launch it from any desktop with any OS to view your sensitive data.
Everyone needs a password manager app nowadays. Whatever network resource you visit, you have to be authenticated. Security guidelines require us to have strong passwords, and no matter how smart you are, you cannot remember them all if you do not use them every day.
Software market is full of password keepers, which allow categorizing, sorting and custom field building. Cloud KeyRing presents another approach for a quick access of your data – it is quick in-text filtering.
This password manager uses a Master-Key to prevent unauthorized access to the account database. A Master-Key is a password invented by yourself for the encryption of your data. It can be any sequence of letters, digits or numbers at your choice. Please, do not forget your master key to avoid the loss of your data due to inability to decrypt the database.
I certainly recommend this app if you share my affection to cloud technologies and user interface simplicity.
