Needs a Tweak
This is very simple to use and a great way to store passwords, user names, etc. I am using it because I dont like storing this kind of information on my computer - it could be dangerous. My only complaint is that there is not enough space for additional information under "Notes." For instance, agents name, phone number, contract number, special instructions, etc.
Excellent way to keep your passwords
Very simple to use. For example you want to pay your electric bill just write in Electric and your user name and pass word appears.
And it is safe nobody can get any information from it as you need a pass word to get in. And
you can change your pass word any time.
Great idea and easy to use
This is a great device and easy to use. I ordered three of them, but had to return one since it was intermittent. I would have given this five stars had I not had this issue.
Great gizmo for a baby boomer!
cute and useful. But I had to buy a new battery right out of the box.
not enough information
Do not have enough information for keyboard operation.
can only print out the first letter on each key.
a-- d-- g-- etc.
Seems to work
Seems to be very cheaply made, does not slide easily. Hopefully with great care it will hold up and work bur i dont anticipate that. Great idea, wish i could find one more durable. Returns are not that simple for Sharper Image so I kept it.
Easy to use
Easy to use, will recommend to others
For iPad and iPhone it is just great.
Really a useful toy
Every time I forget my password (which is frequently) it is in the vault.
Simple, easy to input.
Simple input, easy to retrieve info, great for my poor memory.
Handy & Easy to Use
Compact. Carry in my purse to use anywhere
Great idea. I cant even read my changed/scribbled over piece of paper used in the past
Great Idea but difficult to use
With everything requiring passwords and user names and the ever increasing identity theft threat, this is a long overdue product. I would be willing to pay a bit more for higher quality. The technology exists today for a more user friendly, easier to use product. When someone comes up with it I will buy it. For now however this product serves my needs.
Safe way to store passwords
Purchased 2 Password Safes for home use. Love the idea that hackers cannot access a portable device like this. Much safer than keeping passwords on your computer or tablet. The only thing that you have to be somewhat careful about is the functions for editing or deleting records - you may have to reenter a record since the delete function may delete the next record on your list. This is not a deal killer. Still recommend this item!
Very kewl little item
I have given these as gifts so many friends and family members. Everyone who has received it has had nothing but good to say about it! Neat little product.
U have to push the power button hard to get it to turn on.
Should have two shift buttons
Nice concept but does not work.
Finally a place for passwords!!
So helpful to keep all passwords together in one secure place.
Safe and convenient
I was looking for a way to store my numerous passwords without putting them on my computer. The Password Vault is easy to use and convenient for a home office. I would not recommend it for traveling as it is somewhat bulky. The only area where I might suggest improvement is in the display. The ability to adjust the brightness of the display would be helpful.
Good little gadget
It is a great device for people who have a lot of passwords to remember. Now you dont have to have all those little pieces of paper in your wallet. Even if you lose this device your passwords will be safe because no one will have the main password to enter your files. It is a little bulky but it has to be so you can type in the information. The down side is that you have to go through all the files until you find the one you need. I guess you cant have everything for this small price.
easy to use
it was good instructions and explanted well
Easy to use
Easy to use
I purchased one I would purchase another
This device is an easy set-up easy to use and dependable
Password Vault saves the day
Keeping track of passwords is a bit of a pain and you dont want to write them down for the whole world to see. This is a user friendly gadget and quite helpful. I wish it had a querty keyboard instead of one where you press twice for the second letter, three times for the third but it takes up very little space on your desk (and, yes, you need a Password to get into it.) Very worth the money.
I like it.
Use it at home.
A MUST ORGANIZER
This is the best device to end the frustration you experience every time you need your user name and password and cannot locate it. This organizes all of those passwords and user names you can never remember where you wrote. The best invention.
Neat n Tidy
This is such a great little product for seniors and others who like keeping their passwords in order and ready when needed.
Great memory helper, not so great input
I have many password protected accounts. This helps keep them all near without memorizing all the data. Any changes can be edited fairly quickly. With the old style keyboard, entering data is a bit of a chore.
works as advertized
a little pricey but works as advertised.
works as expected from a SI product!
Takes much time to put in each website
Make life easier
Remembering so many user names & passwords gets more & more difficult, but with this compact device it is possible to go with a tough-to-break opener and get to all of the info you need to have secure. Works well even for a few users in a single household to agree on the code to get into the device and have it all handy.
Im using the vault to store the many passwords required for internet use. Many sites have different rules for passwords and this is not a "one size fits all" situation.
Complicated to use. Still trying.
I cant yet offer much in the way of specifics. It seems complicated to me, but I will go back and figure it out. Great idea -- thats why Ill stick with it. So my impression could change.
Too Big to cary
Not sure I will use it much, it is bigger than my cell phone.
Would buy again
Vault is about the size of my label maker, no problem there. A little cumbersome when inputting information.
ease of operation sold me!
ease of use
Password Vault is so convenient!
This is such a great tool since my husband and I have two computers and share a lot of accounts. Its so much easier to be able to just look up the information we need when going online, whether than having to call each other, or send text messages.
great product and ptacticle to use
great I am glad your co carries such items
Excellent - easy to use
Allows me to use different passwords for each application and thereby have greater security from hackers.
PASSWORD VAULT -- A MUST HAVE
Personal use: gives me a secure log for all of my user IDs and passwords.
This product is awesome
We use this product not only for passwords but, for other information
Great way to organize passwords
I use capitals and special characters ($,\, etc) in passwords. The device does not allow caps or special characters in the PIN used to access your data. Since you can use up to 16 letters and numbers in this PIN, I make this PIN longer for security reasons.
The best in the market
Very helpful tool for all password with a password to get in and also have memory when batteries are changed.
This is a good buy
Great product. Easy to program and much better than putting it into a cloud or a notebook. When on the road I pack this device so if I need an address I have it.
Mostly good for a great idea
The best thing is being able to store sites and passwords for both me and my spouse in one secure place OFFLINE.
A few little things would have made it better: a "dot" button and an @ button would make entering data easier and sometimes the red on/off button doesnt respond right away, like its stiff. The buttons are a little challenging for large fingers.
Overall, I like it.
Easy to set up and now I dont have to remeber or write down everything and it is not connected to the internet so it is hack proof.
So far it is great
I got this unit to replace another brand that I have had for a long time but it is getting old. I like the looks of this design and the feel when using it. Great unit.
Great little tool!
I use this for safety. I no longer keep all my usernames and passwords in a file on my computer where it is much more vulnerable to theft.
I only wish I didnt have to scroll through the alphabet to get to each entry. Since I am a business owner with many vendors, thats a lot.
Great to store for safety
Good little item for all of the easy to forget passwords!
More trouble than its worth!
This gadget is not worth the trouble! I almost sent it back after spending hours entering data, but stuffed it in a drawer instead.
I Love the New Password Vault!
I have been using the older model (the one with 3 to 4 letters per number.) It took a long time to enter information. This new model with the Qwerty Keyboard is such a great improvement! You can enter your info in a flash! It is extremely easy to set up and use. Thanks for the improved model!
Easy to use,but the screen for Notes is too small,does not allow enough notes.
It does not have the symbol for coma (,)
Unable to use caps in main password
This is a good product. I wish there was a way to connect this to my computer and be able to transfer the entries from a spreadsheet that I have, rather than having to manually enter everything again - very time consuming.
Easy to use and secure
Great way to organize and keep safe all of your computer/other passwords. Works well with computer passwords but also lock combinations, answers to special security questions. Would be better if more symbols included on the keyboard. However, remembering one password to this little box is far better than trying to remember all of your secrets.
A great idea-simple yet safe and easy.
It is nice to know my passwords are not in cyberspace.
product is great for the absent minded
this product is very useful especially when i take trips as im very forgetful. Further, I have nothing negative to say about my password vault.
What a time saver
The first set of buttons below the screen dont work good, have to press them several times to work. The key board buttons work great.
One place to safely keep all passwords
Great to have one place to safely keep all passwords.
Timeconsuming entry though. But once it is entered, you are done and safe.
very much needed to keep info current, o
store passwords etc.
so far works great
store all my passwords instead of using a piece of paper
Very Compact way to keep passwords safe
I travel a lot. This makes it easy to keep track of my passwords whereever I am without having to work hard to access or update my password list. I find it cumbersome when having to wade my way through the alphabetic list. Would be nice to have an option to go to a specific letter or do a find. It also it awkward to enter numbers and special characters. It would be nice to have a shift option like a regular key board. The special character option is very limited. It would be nice to have a few more which are more commonly used in passwords such as the $ and the &. The notes section is a little limited.
Great idea for a product and easy to use
Retired, so just use at home and when traveling.
My daughter is thrilled with it - she is using it for personal, office, home, husbands position, sons emails, etc.
Great,time saving, handy and quick.
A Password Saver
One place to keep all my passwords w/o keeping them on my PCs
Giving as a Xmas gift. Person has been using symall spiral notebook to keep passwords in. I think this Password Vault will be the perfect gift.
Easy to use, love this!
Handy to keep close to add new passwords as I chose them and or change them. Small, and easy to use.
Purchased 2 for my children and 1 for myself. We all kept passwords in notebooks and attached to computers. This should be safe for my home and their work areas. This device can be conveniently located on a desk by the computers without the worry of someone seeing important information. Very excited to give such a beneficial gift. The keys are small, so a stylus was very helpful when entering the new info. into the password safe.
I purchased the Password Vault after reading the reviews. It was a little time consuming to enter all of my passwords, but it was well worth it. I use the Password Vault whenever I forget a password. Its especially handy when I travel and dont have access to my many pages of passwords. I also have found it very easy to periodically change passwords. I like the fact that I dont have to keep my passwords online. The keypad is okay, but I wish it had more special characters; I had to change some of my passwords because the keypad didnt include the characters I needed. I havent had the Password Vault long enough to comment about battery life, but Im encouraged that the accompanying pamphlet says that my passwords wont be lost when the battery dies.
I keep this with me at all times. It is secure and a life-saver.
Purchased for myself & friends.
Organized and stored all my passwords in one place and I only have to remember one ID and password. Easy and safe to carry anywhere. Easy to use.
It is easy to use and compact enough to travel well.
This product is amazing
This is just what I had been searching for. Very easy to use. It replaces at least ten pages of written passwords and other information for my internet use.
all the passwords I have in one easy dev
I bought this for myself, as I have my passwords in my wallet, my cellphone, and even on some scraps of paper. This password vault now keeps all of them together and its now they are much easier and faster to find. I wish Id thought of this item!
a nice device
I am trying to get the hang of using it. When I put in the wrong letter and try to delete just that letter it deletes everything. I have to work with it a little more.
Its not useable, you spend 1/2 your time trying to streatin
When you delete an item, it delets the wrong thing.This is terrible to use.
Very pleased with Password Vault
This is an excellent way to quickly access your logins and passwords, as oppossed to written form. Very happy with the backup memory when the batteries need replacement. Also like the optional notes field on each entry for references and contact information, if needed. Easy to use, but wish the @ was a seperate key, without the need to use the caps key to access it. I also like the back light option for use in darker conditions.
Id buy again if light was improved
This is a very useful tool. Small compact and easy to use. Only drawback is hard to see unless you leave the light on. I have poor vision and have to keep turning back on. This device eliminates lists of sign ons and passwords lying around or forgetting the "safe hiding place".
I use this product almost every day. Its a great little item to add to your office especially if you have numerous passwords to remember. The only down side to it is that the cover does not open far enough and can make typing difficult. Otherwise it does its job very well and is a durable little gadget.
Product works as expected
Purchased for my parents. They have troubles remembering all the passwords in their life.
I wish that it used a removable memory like an Micro SD card for the storage, as designed if the unit were to fail you would lose all the data.
But the public desire for machines like this is not high, most password vaults are now thumbnail drives which I would not recommend. Anything that has to be connected to the computer adds vulnerability.
There is a simple elegance of security to a device that cannot be net-worked or accessed remotely in this day and age.
Comes in handier than having a password file that could be accessed on-line
Product exactly what we were looking for
self-explanatory (see above)
I would recommend this product!!
I was afraid of the password apps because of hacking! This password storage is a better alternative!
I keep all my passwords here. I was given this as a gift and it has turned into something I use all the time.
SECURE AND SAFE
It was easy to add accounts with log on and pass words, instructions very easy. The fact that it is secure with your information once your pin passcode is entered. I am happy with the purchase.
Gem of a product!
Used this product to store passwords from various websites. Used as well to store various policy numbers, financial information, etc. Great device for storing all types of important data where a loved one may need to access your personal information if ever needed as long as they have your password. Be imaginative...you can store tons of information on this!
GOOD WAY TO KEEP TRACK OF PASSWORDS
I was using same password for several different web sites. now can have separate ones and find them rapidly.
Change your passwords with ease!
I purchased 3 Password vaults for gifts & got great reviews. I then decided I needed one for myself! Havent taken the time to enter all of my passwords but also great for other private info that are for "my eyes only". It cannot be accessed by anyone other than me. ie: Codes for my home security, garage security and banking info. What a gem. Buy one for yourself!
All data was lost after 3 or 4 days
It was frustrating that it worked for 3 or 4 days and then when I tried to open up the safe I received a message of "NO DATA". And the most frustrating part is that I had already shredded my hard copy password file after verifying my data was stored.
I wanted so I could keep stuff safe
Its a great thing for what I wanted it for
simple, straightforward and great for old minds!
This is great if you travel and want to stow passwords securely. Unlike using a device to store the info on your computer, no one else can use this gizmo, since it requires secure info to enter the "vault". A little laborious to use, but probably worth the effort.
Password Vault = Peace of mind
This is the fifth one that I have purchased (4 have been gifts. I bought one for me and then purchased for extended family when I saw how handy it was to have. Beats scrap pieces of paper scattered around. I inherited five sheets of paper with passwords and it took awhile to transfer to the vault. The vault sorts sites and makes it quick and easy to find passwords, user names, etc. It is real best buy.
Finally, an easy to use tool.
this password saver is great! I can finally get rid of all those little pieces of paper with users and passwords on them.
Was tired of keeping track of my user IDs and passwords in a paper notebook. The password vault greatly reduces the time and effort to keep track of these.
really handy, bought 3 of them for famil
poor instructions, but easy to use once you figure it out
I like easy and this is easy.
This product provides more peace of mind regarding identity security.
all I expected
A great way to store all the many passwords for the many different accounts we all use !
Excellent Way To Store Passwords
This is the perfect place to store passwords. They are not stored on the internet or in the cloud so, unless someone steals your device, there is no way anyone else could hack into your passwords.
peace of mind
use in case cant recall item
great because it is light & compact
The passwordword vault will save me much time and frustration in not having to look up passwords. I hated having to go through my long list of passwords when I needed one.
I do have rather large and insensensitive finger tips so the small keys are sometimes difficult for me to use, especialy the direction keys near the OK key. I often get the OK key instead of the directional key.
Keyboard not that easy to use
I intend to use the product but it is not easy to enter the information. Not really what I expected.
Not a techie, BUT LOVE THIS THING!
At first, after reading some reviews on the Password Vault, I was
skeptical. Some said it was difficult to use. Well, Im not a
techie-person, so that made me shudder a bit. But, it seemed
worth a shot, as my hand-written password files were piling up,
and not easily at hand.
Surprise! This little gadget is just perfect. As to durability, Im
not a careless person, so I expect the device to last a while, even
with an occasional toss onto my desk.
The only negative is the action bar. Its small, and too close to
the first couple of keys. Other than that, the PV is simple to use.
BTW, Im a senior (60++, etc.) , so if I can learn how to use it,
anyone with basic computer skills will love it.
One more thing: The Sharper Image service was excellent!
Ordered by chat with a rep. I had previously ordered a PV
from a "highly reputable company", known for selling items
to those with deep pockets. Long story short, their claims
for delivery went on for weeks. Crazy. So I chatted with the
Easy storage for passwords
Easy storage for passwords
This was given to me as a gift, because I can never remember any of my passwords.
Now I just have to remember one.
About time someone came up with a compact, handy place to store all passwords in a secure manner.
would like more space for notes and/or fields
This is great for IDs and password you do not use on a daily basis, especially for those of us getting older and harder to remember every password, especiaslly when they tell you make sure you vary them for safetys reasons
a gem in every way
what can I say? This product is everything it says and more. It is so easy to use thanks to very well written and understandable instructions. I have never liked to travel with all my passwords written on a sheet of paper. This vault can not be accessed even if left in plain view in your room. Its portable and safe BRAVO.
Love the password vault. Now I only have
Tstorey passwords in one place
Very handy product
Its convenient having all of my passwords, etc., in one secure location.
I bought this for older people as a gift. They had a problem putting in the information and appeared it was too complicated for them. Problem was with the people not the password vault.
Wonder How I Lived Without It
Customer service via email does not cut it. I wrote with one issue, and I received a standard reply that didnt help me at all. It took a phone call and a wait to get through to someone who was pleasant, helpful and corrected my problem. I dont look forward to having to go this route in the future.
I like the safe for saving my passwords, but wish it had a separate number keyboard, or shift to numbers. Its really slow to use with letters and numbers combined. I also wonder what happens when the battery has to be changed.
From many to one
Handy backup for far too many passwords on the internet
Since this is used for passwords one of the most used is the period, this is difficult to do when you have to keep the shift down and the period is above the shift. The shift should be like the caps lock key, lock it when you press on it. Havent really had a chance to put it to the test.
Doesnt work right. If I need to delete something, you never
There are two ok buttins?
Seems to work as advertised.
Once the info is entered the paper notes are tossed and life should be safer and more organized.
Great storage for Passwords etc.
Wish I had this earlier in my life it would have saved me some time and sweat trying to remember all my pass words.
This is a great invention
I just got this a few days ago, and already wonder how Ive gotten along without it. I have a Password book that Ive used, but there are not enough pages for each letter of the alphabet, nor is there enough room for notes. The Password Vault is ideal because there is plenty of room for numerous entries, plus an area for additional notes for each entry. Now all I have to remember is the PIN for accessing everything.
secure and practical
THis is the most practical solution to a difficult problem: keeping track of multiple passwords to a vast array of accounts.
With the necessity of passwords getting more complicated to protect against identity theft, the idea of a password vault takes on greater weight. This product is great for the price. It is easy to load up passwords and user names because there is an actual keyboard to do that.
It is small and travels well and is a good value.
Does what its buiilt for
does what its intended to do, help u keep track of your stuff
Bought as a gift. Party really liked it.
Got as gift for someone who loves anything electronic-----really like it and started imputting right away!!!
EVERY REVIEW IS NOT ALWAYS CORRECT !!
saw in another review that keyboard did not lock in open position but, this is not true > you just need to give it a little extra push and you will feel it lock in place . i had no problems with this product > works very well !!!
Just right for this "hackers age".!
Although it takes time adding in your PWs the first time ,it proves to be worth the time and effort. It has become necessary to change pws often and this PW Vault enables that process.
The directions were really easy to follow. Everytime I had a question the answer was there in easy to understand language.
I would prefer a size larger because the keys are a bit too small for old fingers.
I bought a 2nd one as a gift for my husband. Hes been using sticky notes for his passwords.
this product is really great,easy to edit passwords & user ids.Great for people who change their info frequently.
Wow This is a No Brainer
For a forgetful person like I can be this product insures I wont be locked out of my favorite web sites because I dont remember the password. Genius. Sheer genius.
The unit does not offer all of the symbols found on a standard keyboard. It is a little awkward to use.
Just what I wanted.
This is just what I have been looking for. Now I dont have to carry around a wallet full of papers with all my passwords. The nice thing is that it is not connected to the internet so no one can hack into it. It is a little large but if it was any smaller it would be hard to enter information into it.I guess you cant have everything. It has a backlight so it is easy to use in darker areas.
product was all that I expected.
The four pin code is easy to use and remember.
Great product easy to use great security
Easy to set up and input your own security information. I especially like the ability to add notes.
A must have
Between work and home I have hundreds of passwords to remember. This makes it a lot easier then writing everything down.
Eliminate your Idenity Thieft chances
Keep all your passwords protected and not just written down and available to unauthorized people.
Compact and easy to travel with.
I had a small book that was made for recording passwords in, but there were not enough pages for each alphabet, so I could only put in so many entries. When I saw this Password Vault in the catalog I knew I had to order it. As soon as it arrived I started loading it with my passwords, and other key information necessary for each. There is so much room and it automatically alphabetizes each entry. Its compact and fits right in my tech bag along with my laptop and tablet, and other necessary business items. Love this product and highly recommend it for anyone who has a need for more than one password.
I give this product a 4 hard to type
This product is not really big and you should use a stylus to type small keyboard and the screen is hard to see it should have been a white backround with dark letters and if you can get by these problems it is a very usefol product.The product is very easy to use and very secure.
easy to use once you know how
For anyone not tech savvy, there are no printed directions for getting to the letters you need or the numbers; I needed help from someone & then it was fine. Seems like a good idea!
An essential organizational tool
I wanted this item since I first saw it online. Easy to use, it has brought organization to the nightmare of passwords jotted down all over. Highly recommend it as gift and for oneself.
It is a great little gadget for storing your memory. Instead of constantly asking someone for their password to enter a web site we have this handy little memory device. Great idea!
Paperless, no more scribbles
Liked the compactness. No more scribbles to decipher and searching for non-alphabetized websites on paper. Too bad the comma and quotes symbols are missing. This would be an excellent gift as password problems exist with most computer users.
So much safer than a written list
Keys are tiny.
I love it
Now my husband doesnt have to always ask me for the passwords for the things he doesnt remember! Its not at his fingertips!!
Love my Password Vault.
Gives me a sense of security.
EASY to USE!!!!
Very easy to use. Compact and handy. So useful for log-on information as well as PIN numbers. I havent had it very long, so cant review about length of time yet.
Will use for all of my passwords and put my paper notes in a safe place.
As mentioned above: should have one more line for notes at least and need to add a comma.
Best gadget in a long time.
All Password in one easy to use place.
Small enough to carry around
it functions as advertised
I would rate this higher but it uses the "old" keyboard. A telephone keyboard, so you have to hit the keys multiple times to type. Takes a while to get out passwords and ids. Otherwise it is a very basic password keeper and so far has worked as advertised.
Good Concept, Faulty Execution
Would be best if it could be loaded directly from a computer database. Should be slim enough to fit in a wallet. No need for a keyboard...USB or Bluetooth connection to a laptop would suffice.
great idea for al of my passwords
good for the busy family and with multi devices that require passwords
Good idea, but lacking important feature
Good memory extender but not east of efficient to use.
Great While it Worked
I puchased this product as a gift for my husband last March so it is not even a year old as yet. It has a 90 day warranty although if you are storing passwords you certainly expect it to last for some time. It did work very well and my husband used it daily until two days ago when it suddendly stopped accepting the main password to open. We tried to reset and change the battery to no avail.We googled the problem and found many folks have encoutered the same issue with no solution.Sharper image was not able to offer much help. They did give me their Vendor phone contact although that persons voice mail was full so I was not able to leave a message...not a ggod sign.
Great idea but it needs to work or they need to be able to fix the bugs.
I enjoy using this.
It beats writing on Index cards. Will be giving some as gifts soon.
Dont waste your money!
I expected this to be a wonderful product and couldnt wait to get it in my hands, I spent time inputting 60 passwords. Then, when I went back in to edit a few, ones I didnt open were edited, the one I wanted to edit was deleted. No consistency to how or why this happened. Others just disappeared for no reason. I followed the instructions to the letter. Now, I dont trust that it has the correct information and have erased the entire bunch! Will I start over? Not likely. I will stick to my locked up list!
Simple to use, excellent choice to store all of the passwords you accumulate over time.
i bought 3 for friends and we all like t
two were gifts, one for me, wish id had it sooner would have been easier to find all the passwords i needed to put in it!
Like this product
He has just entered all his passwords. Stated that it was easy to use. Safer and less chance of losing passwords.
Purchased two Vaults for gifting Christmas. One for husband and a relative. Sure helps with all the many passwords written in unorganized spiral binder. Both people love them and they both work great and very clever. Both arrived in their product boxes in flimsy bubble envelope, the boxes smushed on corners, but the Vaults no damage and work just fine. Purchased GPS padded zipped small carry cases for the Vaults from an office supply store. Both gift receivers were thrilled with gift. Ordering another one for an upcoming birthday gift.
Happy with the password vault
I am very happy to have a secure place to store my passwords - something other than the little notebook I was carrying with me everywhere! Just one criticism - there was no little instruction book to get me started. I wasnt sure what each of the keys meant or how to navigate from one to another. This may not be a problem for techies, but for those of us "of a certain age" it makes it easier to get started and to trust the product.
Much better than keeping a lists.
Works great as described.
From many to just one
A handy back up and secure location for far too many internet passwords!
Awesome product, exactly what I needed!
No more stressing over misplaced loose papers that have pass codes on them!
This eliminates all the papers everywhere and the fear of forgetting one.
Very handy gadget
This is a handy gadget if you have many passwords to remember. The main problem I have with it is I have to hold it under a light to read the display as it doesnt seem to have any backlighting. It cannot be used effectively in dim light.
Just what I needed
I needed a way to save all my passwords and when I found this I had to have it, and it worked as stated so I am more than happy with it. So far I have not found any problems with it.
SAVE WITH CONFIDENCE
THE LIMITATION OF NOT HAVING A BACKLIGHT FOR THE KEYBOARD IS A DRAWBACK. SHIFT/PUNCTUATION IS AWKWARD. I RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT. IT HAS SAVED ME TIME AND FROM FRUSTRATION. AN ADDITIONAL DURABLE PROTECTIVE POUCH WOULD BE USEFUL FOR TRAVEL, ETC.
Since it doesnt light up, it can only be used with artificial light, or natural light.
love this product,thank you
I have a book that I tried to write every thing down, now that is one thing I dont need any more. I was always looking for the book and it was very frustrating to find what I needed. In my vault every thing is alphabetical. thank you so much for this product. And a big big thank you to my sister for the suggestion
Great Gift For Bad Memories
So Mom is 81 and loves her gadgets, computers,etc.
If I have trouble remembering passwords, I was certain she would love this
device and she does.
Faster than a Speeding Address Book
If periodic senior moments sneak up on you, and youre not in Menses, this is for you! I didnt realize I had so many private/secret/hard-to-remember IDs. Will probably not utilize all 400 accounts, but the 30+ Ive input so far are "vaulted" and I almost feel like Ive won the lottery. All I have to do now is remember my single Key Password. Purchased one for myself and 3 as gifts; the one gifted so far produced a near state of ecstasy – I love mine – and in two weeks the others will be in the mail.
Good/clear instructions, (do read), simple to use, and greatly appreciate "Note" section.
Only con may be inadvertently turning it off by hitting the clear, brightly-colored orange On/Off button, due to my little fingers habitual move to some key in that position on my computer keyboard ... think its the Shift key. This is more of a momentary laps on my part, probably caused by my excitement in playing with a new toy ... did I mention senior moments?
Good product, very happy, definitely recommend.
Too bad you have to scroll down the whole list of entries to find your item instead of going to a letter of the alphabet first. However this password vault is still a very good product.
Just what I had been looking for
Single location for all my passwords
Purchased as gifts
What a great idea - purchased two for gifts - one for husband and one for relative. Will purchase another one for gifting if I have positive feedbacks. Cant wait to toss the ol messy and unorganized notebook and use this nifty little guy! So glad I spotted on SI website.
Purchased 2 GPS-sized carry cases from a local office supplier (@$20 ea) as they dont come with a case. Each will be protected now for travel, etc.
I read over the instruction pamphlet that is included and appears simple to set up and use.
Even without using, at this point would give the product an overall 5*.
One huge drawback is the packaging method SI used - a flimsy thin-layered bubble envelope and no additional padding surrounding the 2 Vaults! Both boxes the Vaults came in were smushed - just hope Vaults function correctly. If not, will return Vaults as I kept the damaged mailing envelope and boxes as proof.
Liked it so much ordered three more for family members
Better than expected
It was a gift for my husband who has several passwords in a tiny old notebook. He was very excited.
I love this product
I love this product it is a safe eady way to store all those passwords. I dont have to worry about someone being able to hack into my laptop a retrieving all my passwords
What a great Idea
What a great Idea, much better than little pieces of paper all over the place that you can never remember where you put them.
I love my password vault.
I can share it with my daughter
This is great. Had passwords hanging all over the place. This is easy to use and everything is stored in on place.
For those of us who have more then one
I have to many passwords this product is great if you use a lot of different passwords
This is the second Password Vault that I have purchased. This one is for my husband for Christmas, it beats thumbing through tons of notecards and it keeps your passwords safe.
The full keyboard is a great improvement over the previous model. The design is great, and it really does an excellent job of helping me stay organized.
Organized at last!
So glad to have all those passwords in one safe place. Will be making them a little harder now that I am not trying to remember them all.
Great way to Store Passwords
I love this because I have different passwords for all my online accounts.I keep it in my purse so I can use it at home and at work or anywhere I am.The only thing I have a problem with,is the start button,I have to hold it down quite awhile before the screen comes up.Once the screen is up its good to go.
Great Christmas gift for guys
Good tool to use for organization.
Simple but functional
Use it to manage passwords electronically but not on network
less paper bulky tech product
I needed a tech gadget that would save lots of passwords. After receiving he product, I was disappointed because it cannot be carried in my pocket. However, I do like having a gadget where I can have passwords in one place without having to carry lots of paper in the pockets.
Passwords? No problem!
I dont like the fact that I cant have the same password for everything, I just cant remember them all! The Password Vault is great and not to big to carry around. Now I have all my passwords at my finger tips, Im very happy with it.
not as functional as I expected,
overpriced versus versatility
Great for people who forget passwords
I was well pleased with the password vault. It is a vary handy product.
easy to program/use. have all your passwords/pin numbers at your fingertips
love this item
Good item when you have a lot of IDs and Passwords.
Great Organizer, no more hunting
The password vault is really wonderful. I dont have to hunt through everything to find the one I want, it is right there at the push of a button. It has a back light on it which makes it very easy to read also. I dont know about the battery life, I havent had it long enough but Im sure it will be as good as other electronic devices now days.
Ill be ordering more of these.
I purchased this for my wife, she absolutely loves it. The old scruffy notebook she used is now history and the passwords are organized and secure. Ill order more for gifts!
I am keeping all sensitive info on this. I really am relieved that it is not internet connected and, I assume, cannot be hacked. Good product.
Love this Password Vault!
Very easy to use with clear instructions. Didnt take long to catch on to how it works. It did take me a couple of days to enter all the info but once entered, it works great. You can enter info in any order and it comes out in alphabetical order. You can do a search very easily to find what youre looking for by typing in the first few letters. However, be aware that if you enter it in caps, you need to search by caps so be consistent or youll have to remember if you entered the name of the web site in caps or lower case. Other than a few little things, I love this product.
great not having to remember all the passwords now just one. for me thats hard enough.
Very easy to use
Easy way to keep track of all your passwords in one location. I no longer have multiple slips of paper all over my desks at home and work now that I have the Password Vault. I just carry this in my purse and all my passwords and Internet addresses are in one easy to find location.
I like that it is compact enought to fit into a purse, luggage so that it is available to me at anytime. The security on the vault ensures that it will be difficult for anyone to retrieve any of my passwords. Would make a wonderful Christmas, graduation or birthday gift.
All your passwords in one place
Easy to use.
Relieves have to remember each password.
Passwords have become so complex i.e. upper case, lower case, numeric, alpha-numeric, character limitations, etc. a yellow pad no longer does the job. This is great.
does everthing i hoped it easy to use great item
easy to use fast and simple
Just what I wanted
Functions well, very basic, not sure if that is a pro or con, so easy to use, which is important.
This item: very easy to use.
store my password in one location. works great so far.
Great password keeper
Great way to store passwords and retrieve them while on the go!
OK but not Out of this World
I like everything about the Password Vault except the brightness of the screen: it could be brighter!!
SANITY SAVING PASSWORD VAULT
This has been a terrific addition for my attempts to maintain both sanity and "PASSWORDS"!!
Concept is good
The concept is good however the entry of passwords can be tedious at first (I had 80 passwords to enter). The scrolling process to find a PW can be tedious
Luv password keeper
This is very easy to use and so useful. I had notes of passwords everywhere in my purse! I read the reviews, and thought Id try it. Shipping was very fast and I love everything about it.
At this point, I dont have anything negative to say about it. Well worth having!
finally, only one password to remember!
Most people are guilty of writing down passwords and storing them on their computer...bad idea. And its really not a good idea to auto save passwords either. The vault is small enough to carry around so you can take it to work or on trips when you might need to use a computer other than your own. Easy access and secure. Ill be getting another one for my son when he goes to college.
Gave as a gift to my boss, who is constantly forgeting his multiple passwords (we work in banking at when I say multiple I mean multiple) This has been nothing but a life saver for him!
I leave it on my desk so it will close to my computer. I have my passwords in my phone, but in case it gets stolen, I will have them in my password vault.
A time saver
sharper product remembers all
excellent product and good value. remembers all that you forget. i great place to store your brain
This item is better then having a box full of file cards on your desk and its very easy to access what you want. I got one for my wife also, and she loves it.
"A very smart move"
A much needed item for senior citizens. I spend a lot of time on my computer; resulting in many, many user IDs & passwords. I have used many forms of password storage concepts. My son purchased the "Password Vault" a couple of years ago, and has been thoroughly pleased with the product. The only inconvenient aspect of the product being, it doesnt have a "QWERTY" keyboard. I would purchase again if needed.
I would buy this product again and again
I love this Password Vault.It was very easy to program.I wish it were thinner.
great product and price too
solves a lot of paper clutter
Pass Word Safe is just that
Keeps everything in one SAFE place
I lost all the data I entered after having it a few days
I entered all of my sites and passwords and had no problem accessing the data for a few days and then I turn it on and I get a message that data cant be found. Of course, this happened after I shredded my spreadsheet of passwords - several of them! I am ticked and frustrated.
Tedious to use, and poor instructions
I use this ONLY to backup my online PW vault. It is too slow to access it regularly, and definitely takes too long to add or edit regularly. Once yes, always, no. It has a very fragile feeling and warns not to shake or drop-could break internal circuit boards. Understandable, but suspect this may not take long, even on an accidental basis. Nice to have a backup to my online, in case it goes awry. Really expected more for the price. And to clarify, I WOULD recommend to a friend for the same limited, but important uses that I have listed. Not bad, just not as great as I had hoped for. Guess I was hoping for American made. Thanks.
I like it, easy to use.
I like it and I use it everyday. I am not great with gadgets but this is easy for me.
The Cure for CRS
The password vault is a nice solution for the proliferation of PINs, passwords, and codes we all accumulate. It used to be you just had a couple, but now an average computer user can easily wind up with 50 or 100 or more. You dont want to carry them around with you on a piece of paper, and this way you have access to all of them and just have to remember one. NICE!
My only complaint is what others have said-to get a capital letter to have to use the caps lock and then unlock it. Most passwords are case sensitive, so this is important. A dedicated caps key wouldnt have been too much to ask. I would also recommend NOT to put your name and address on the device. If it is lost, it is lost, but you dont want to invite hackers and thieves. Other than that it is great. It will alphabetize your entries too, which is handy.
Meets my needs, thanks!
Too Soon to Tell for Sure
I purchased this to store my passwords confidentially in one place. I think I am going to like it, though I have not used it enough to be 100% sure. The entry is relatively easy, and the retrieval will tell the tale once I have lots of entries. So far, so good. I am glad I purchased it and from all appearances so far would make the choice again.
I call this my memory secret pad
I use this product for anything I might forget. like birthdays,anniversaries ,codes,numbers passwords.etc...
A small product with alot of big important information.This was I gift for myself I really needed it. I just which that it came with a little pouch to put it in,Im trying to find one.Thank you.
GOOD IDEA - COULD BE VASTLY BETTER
This is a great idea that wasnt executed very well. On the pro side it is very secure and dependable due to the lock-out feature and flash memory that wont lose your data even if the battery runs out. On the con side it is bulky making it hard to carry all the time, has no way to back it up so if it breaks all is lost, has no backlight and (in the beginning) is extremely difficult to input new items although once you do editing of the passwords is not too bad if you change frequently. The main problems are (as mentioned) inputting is extremely tedious due to the old cellphone style keyboard, there are very few special characters if you use them in passwords and looking up data is extremely tedious also if you have a lot of entries due to no search or scroll functions so you must click one by one through the entries and if you go back to the main menu you must do that all again. If you have 400 entries, advertised as a plus getting to the middle ones would be a real task as a big minus. But mostly this mach
A GREAT LITTLE "TOOL"!
We wanted a small, lightweight item that we could always have with us either at home or when we travel that would keep all our usernames and passwords safe OFFLINE. This is a perfect little gadget that does just that, and I am so glad we found this!
will not get a chance to try it.
I am sending this back. What they sent me uses AAA batteries, not the CR 2032 that they said. Please make a note of that. They also are making me pay to send it back even though it is their fault.
its very convenient I love it.
what I like about it is that I could take it anyway I go just put it in my bag.I have no complaints about it its great.
Handy and Easy to Use
This is a great lightweight gadget, easy to use, to store all your passwords.
my husband gave this to me. I attend many nursing conferences and I like very much the fact that I have all the passwords I need and knowing it is safe.
Password Vault keyboard a pain
I use this to hold all my passwords at home and for travel. It uses a password to allow access to all content, so its more secure than carrying around a written list of passwords. The alpha numeric keyboard is a pain for entering info, and its a bit clunky, but again, its better than carrying around a written list of passwords, especially when traveling.
Easy to enter info and to retrieve data
This Password Vault is fairly simple to use. If I can do it, anyone can. Yes the buttons could be a bit larger but then the unit would have to be also. It is a nice compact little unit. I use it at home even at night working on the Ipad, I will forget my passwords and have to get up and go get my folder, now I can just punch the site in this and wallah!! You have it.
Safety and Convenience
Enabled me to get rid of insecure password lists. Lite enuf to carry around.
A safer way to record those passwords
I had one like this one but I broke it. I felt so exposed until I got the new one. After I broke my old one, I had to write everything down and rely on being able to find the right password when I needed it and hope no one else did. Now the passwords are all in the same place. I know where they are and how to get to them. And I know no one else can.
When your forgetter is working overtime
I needed this tool as a go to place where all of my different paswords are stored conveniently
thought it would have a back light on it to look up your list. and it could be a little bigger.
Ive tried storing my passwords many different ways, but eventually I lose them. This is the perfect answer for me!
I am using the Password Safe to consolidate all my other passwords. Easy to follow instructions.
Good Idea.....Needs Refining
Needs to have a regular keyboard; takes too long typing in each entry.
A little clunky to use ...
Cool idea and eliminates the whole password-on-a-sticky note conundrum which is attractive for business owners with website, banking, and e-commerce ids. Design is not very sleek for those of us who are used to blackberries and iphones. Could use a little updating. The concept is great, but the design is a little too retro (and not in a good way). Its sort of like a flat screen monitor versus the old bubble monitors. Whod want to go back to the bubble?
Its about time!!!
Its about time someone came up with a password storage device. Safe place for all passwords instead of having pieces of paper scattered around.
Instead of using a password notebook, this device is so secure that I am sorry I did not know about sooner. Have already told at least 5 of my friends about it.
I recieved this as a gift and love it. I am always forgetting my passwords or having sticky notes all over the place and most aggravating of all is having to reset my password because I forgot it again. My husband got me the password vault and I have been worry free every since.
I would buy this product again and again
Its great to give a gift that was so appreciated by everyone. The best comment was, this gift will be used and is a relief of information available to me in a safe location.
nice storage unit
good use of storing password and IDs, but needs USB input device to add WEB site addresses
My son in law is a tough sell and he liked it!
nice product, poor entry directions
If one is not tech savvy, the directions for entering specific letters and numbers is not in the user directions. I had to ask someone else how to get the letters and numbers I wanted entered to show up. It would get a 5 star rating if not for this issue.
peace of mind
Input is time consuming but it is a one time chore. The effort is worth the peace of mind
So far, so good
None at this time
Long list above! Endless uses! Havent gotten to use mine yet, but cant wait! Would have given even higher review but is a bit bulky & since havent used cant comment on a few items. However, Ill take a bit bulky, meaning not as thin as a cell over a ton of papers & passwords everywhere & constantly changing, loosing & getting locked out of my acts! Putting them in my phone turned out to be unsafe! To many hackers these days & problems w credit cards, acts, etc! Not worth taking a chance! This is much safer & more secure!
Got this for my husband as a gift. He could not keep up with where he had put his passwords...now that problem is solved. He is very pleased with his gift.
Great Idea - Easy To Use
This device really met a need!
Wish it had a lighted screen!
I was excited to purchase this item since I have trouble keeping passwords straight. The keyboard is archaic and awkward to use. It doesnt have the ability to use certain characters and its a pain to enter the ones it does use. It would be nice to have the screen light up, you have to get it in the right light to read it or type on it. Great idea but needs refined.
I am not sure if I will use this much.
I wish the printing was darker, so it would be easier to see.
i have only had it a few days and have found it very easy to use. only possible problem i see with mine is the on button seems a little flimsy as you have to press it several times for it to turn on. i will watch and see if it is a defective unit. otherwise a nice product
Takes a bit of time
This is a great idea to keep your passcodes secure. The only downfall is that I have so many to enter! It will be a joy to use once all are entered!
I love the Password Vault!
I had so many different passwords that it was difficult to keep track of them. I kept them in a small notebook but I worried about someone getting a hold of it and misusing the information.
The Password Vault was easy to use. Entering the Passwords into the device is quick. Its simple to search for a specific account and editing the entries is a snap.
Best vault ever
Lots of choices to choose for security. Its easy to set up and use along with a lighted background.
Good simple unit
Does a simple job well.
Very Handy device
Love this product!
It was a gift
saved the day!! wife loves it!
Secret lists gone forever
I bought this for my husband who was always lost among his many "secret notes" for his credit card, computer and email codes. Now he is happier and well organized with all his codes in one safe and handy device.
Very convenient way to store all of our passwords
Great Device provides total security!
Using the Password Vault for home use security purposes. Confidence that passwords are stored off-line...as if they are in a HOME Safe Deposit Box!
Would buy again as a gift
During the search function it is case sensitive which makes it hard to search if you dont know which case you stored the address in. It is a very good tool to keep all the info off line and stored safely
Did not understand input instructions. Returned the same day. It was something I needed and will have to wait for a simpler unit.
A handy drvice
Great to have all my passwords together .I appreciate the sorting ,editing ,and delete features .It certainly beats handwritten passwords.
I use it for all my passwords. Only negative drawback is that you cant reset the password without deleting all entries.
Just what the doctor ordered! Excellent!
I have a minor closed head injury leaving me with next to no memory. This compact device is a lifesaver as I need many passwords for both work and home.
I would buy this product again.
Its hard to remember all the passwords that I have, this product really helps me out.
just love it
The best thing I ever bought. Instead of having a million pieces of paper laying around, I now have everything in one spot!
This is a great timesaver
This tool has eliminated my frustration at trying to remember so many different passwords. I now can stop jotting down passwords (as I SHOULDNT) and quickly enter them in the unit.
It is lightweight. I keep it next to my computer for ready access.
ideal better than i thought
for home use
needs quicker way to switch # to letters
Loading it is very slow because of the awkward way of switching from letters to numbers. There were no directions on how to shift from numbers to letters. Could be excellant device once loaded.
Keep your passwords in one place!!
Its so nice not to have to keep track of little pieces of paper with my passwords on them. Easy to use and it makes me feel somewhat organized.
Good concept. Tiny fingers helpful
Great idea and better than storing PWs online or on several sheets of paper. Display quality could be improved and buttons are tiny. The Shift Key is next to the power button and Ive turned off the unit several times by mistake when trying to get a @ sign. A "." key on the keyboard would be helpful instead of having to use the Shift Key.
Perfect for managing all my passwords!
Ikeep all of my work and personal passwords without worry that anyone else can access them.
