The Vault – Secure Document and Data Storage & Password Safe

Do you…


… have trouble remembering tens or hundreds of online passwords?
… write passwords down somewhere, even though you know this is not the safest thing to do?
… use the same ("cleverly" modified) password in multiple places, instead of using properly randomized passwords that offer the best security?
… sometimes wish you had a photo of a creditcard, passport or other document handy?
… want to securely store lots of other confidential information, photos, animated GIFs, office documents, you name it?
… want al this to be secure, but still very simple to use?

Then "The Vault" is for you!

The Vault provides straightforward, easy to use, secure storage for all your documents and other data, such as passwords, login credentials and any other confidential information. It can even securely store any number of images, screenshots or photos along with your confidential information.

* 256-bit AES encryption *
While storage and access is simple, The Vault uses rock-solid, industry standard encryption.


– The Vault is very simple to use, yet it employs industry-standard encryption to keep your data safe.
(Some other – payed – apps do too, but some apps advertised as "secure" really do not, and for example save your data using a simple base-64 encoding: your information looks scrambled, but is as readable as plain text when you know how).

– The Vault will – never – bug you about payed "subscriptions" etc! It just works. Commercial popups are annoying.

– The Vault will – never – show ad banners! We hate them too.

– The Vault stores information on * your * device. Not on some server somewhere on the net.

– The Vault can securely store photos and pictures from your camera or photo library; for example a screenshot of your passport, credit card, or just the serial numbers of some equipment you own. Anything.

– The Vault can securely store – and play – animated GIFs.

– Secured photo’s and animated GIFs can be viewed directly from within the app.

– The Vault can securely store *any* office or other document you send to it via Mail, Safari, Dropbox, Box, iTunes, etc.

– Many secured documents can be viewed directly from The Vault, including PDFs, Keynote, Numbers, Pages, Powerpoint, Excel and Word files.

– An Import option is available that will allow you to import data exported from your previous password app (or any other source that can provide the data).

– Use as many Folders/Categories as you like (including no Folders at all).
