Previous syncing issue with version 8.0.3 has now been resolved with the latest release to 8.0.4. (hello Macupdate! You need to update your site to latest version). Had some issues with iOS version synching but their customer support has been exemplary. Cannot fault and SplashID Safe is a worthy contender for those seeking a password manager.

While it's sad that SplashID hasn't fixed the issue with 8.2.3 and re-released it in the several months since the problem was discovered, it's even worse that MacUpdate is still caching the recalled version. Anyone needing to get back to the stable 8.2.0 version can easily get it from main page of the SplashID site.

This Mac desktop version 8.2.3.970, posted today, was withdrawn by Splash ID a month ago, My own experience today confirms that was a good idea. It immediately crashed or failed to work on my Mac. The previous versions works fine.

Cannot fault this app and matching iOS app now after some initial issues a couple or so years back. Rock solid cloud syncing.

This relates to latest version v8.03 - there is an issue with the mac desktop app wanting to continually sync with the cloud. Splash Data are aware of this and recommend uninstalling 8.0.3 and downgrading to version 8.0.2. Contact Splash Data for specific instructions on doing this as there are some folders and pref files involved in this process. Don't update until they release a fix for 8.0.3.

I have just checked Splash Data's website and noted they have moved to an annual $19.99 subscription fee model (cloud sync). Time to switch to another solution.

Moved to 7.2.2 after Mavericks on my new Air and now crashes continuously when I quit the app. After sandbox issue and plan for wifi or cloud sync I had many troubles with splashID. I am very unsatified of it and thinking to move to another app.

Unfortunately this will be one app that is destined to be replaced since the developer is trying a bit too hard to have users to place potentially sensitive information on a server (cloud) which is currently, in my view, unnecessary and security wise: out of question, I understand we still have the option of not signing up to the cloud services but this option seems to be fading out as per release of the current version.

Previous versions of this software were adequate, which I used for years on both Mac and iOS. Suddenly, with the release of the latest version, the iOS app started uploading my password database to their servers without permission and required me to register my email address with their cloud just to ACCESS MY PASSWORDS, even on the iOS device. It will not sync with my desktop version on Wi-Fi without CHARGING A FEE and demands I sync over the cloud! Forcing users, without notice and express permission, to upload extremely sensitive data to Splashdata's servers is a gross invasion of privacy and charging users to opt out is tantamount to extortion. Splashdata did not reply to requests to erase my data or clarify what information had been uploaded to their servers. Especially after the Snowden revelations, this behaviour is extremely shocking. I've had to revise all my passwords and erase this app completely. Splashdata has lost my trust completely. Avoid them at all costs.

Version 6 is OK - I've been using SplashID for years and it's been great - but there's Version 7 out now which is a nightmare. It introduces Cloud syncing which doesn't work properly and if you try to revert to local WiFi syncing it demands £20.99 - yes $33 - for the privilege of doing what you used to be able to do for free. This product is not fit for use at present.

WARNING! DON'T UPGRADE TO VERSION 7 YET! Loads of users complaining of bugs and issues, including me with the latest cloud version. Stick with 6.2 until SplashData resolve these issues. I've given this version 6.2 5 stars because it rocks. Version 7 sucks.

SplashData's SplashID Safe is really a great app. It is easy to use - excellent in syncing and organizing hundreds of business record across various platforms. What a time saver.

SplashID Safe can store and lock not just username-password info but also sensitive personal and business info. It can categorize unlimited customizable record types and even allows group-level and user-level permissions in the new Enterprise Edition.

Still have problems with a proper sync between desktop and iOS devices (iPhone/iPad). If on Synchronize, it adds the iOS devices entries to the desktops, so I have duplicates of every entry. The only way to insure a proper sync is to have the Desktop overwrite the handheld as default. But that defeats the ability to ever create new entries on the iOS device. Love the customization of types and fields that 1Password does not provide; probably the main reason I've never switched to it. But this sync issue is a BIG problem, IMHO. /

I just upgraded to v. 6.1, and now the app does not open, despite the fact that my password is correct (if i enter a wrong pwd, the app just quits)... Anybody having the same issue?

I've been a SplashID user for several years now. I've got the iOS SplashID version as well as SplashID Safe on my desktop computer. I also listen to a podcast concerning internet and computer security called "Security Now" by GRC.com: Steve Gibson and Leo Laporte. The current podcast (#347) outlines the security of the iOS version of SplashID. Transcript: http://www.grc.com/sn/sn-347.htm Under their analysis, it was revealed that SplashID's user's master password are encrypted under Blowfish using a FIXED key. That fixed key being "g.;59?^/0n1X*{OQIRwy." Therefore, every user, regardless of their master password, has that master password encrypted using this one fixed key. This fixed key (now public) can easily be used to decode the user's master password, thus access the encrypted data. This makes SplashID's security worthless under its current incarnation. I'm frankly outraged. There's no reason why SplashID shouldn't be generating a random, device-specific key. Other password managers do this! I like SplashID. I like the way it looks and functions. I've got hundreds of passwords and personal financial information stored in it. My jaw dropped when I listened to Security Now's podcast. Until SplashData fixes this blatant security hole, I will no longer be using your software. I am dumbfounded how a really obvious security flaw like this was overlooked!

I cannot get this software to work on Lion. I migrated my data from an older Mac to a new one and SplashID no longer works. I have had more problems with this software since they went to version 6. It is no longer worth trying to work with for me.

Seems that mSecure syncs the same way as this junk. Has anyone tried it? I've dumped (flushed) so much money on this Splash software that I MUST try TRIALS now before I buy anymore 'syncing' software for desktop/iphone. This is a HUGE problem w/ the MacAppStore where you can't download TRIALS or receive REFUNDS.

I use SplashID Safe 6.0.4 on my MBPro, syncing without problems to Ipad and Iphone. Yesterday I purchased the Android version 6.0.3, but no syncing! It establishes a connection, but doesn't sync any records. Spending a considerable amount, purchasing both the desktop version as well as all of the handhelds, you would expect better.

For the life of me, I can't get my iPhone and MacBookPro SplashID data to sync. This is starting to remind me of the PALM days when I eventually stomped my PALM to death.

I've been using SplashID since mid 2001. I've started getting emails offering me a commission on sales they derive through me; three in the last twelve hours. Oddly enough, the emails come from the iambic.com domain. SplashData appears to have acquired Iambic last spring. 1Password seems to be a nice solid app these days, and I don't much like dealing with a company doing this sort of thing. No doubt it was a mistake.

I really wanted to like this program because I dislike 1Password's extremely gaudy interface and wanted a simple, clean password manager that would have auto saving in a web browser and an iPhone client. Unfortunately, this product is lame for several reasons. first of all, the interface of this one is the polar opposite of 1Password's. If 1Password is gaudy and overkill this interface is austere and looks like it had never seen an interface designer with no attention to detail or refinement in layout, formatting of text in fields or any other aspect. Furthermore, the Safari plugin runs only in 32-bit mode and this is months after Safari 5 was released. That says to me that the developer is either lazy or disinterested further development and doesn't deserve my money The other thing that really get's me is that to truly use and test the app I need to buy the $10 iPhone application. Why not offer a limited free version like many developers do? I suppose I'll settle on 1Password because there are no other options out there, I wish this developer would get their act together and update this app in the ways I mentioned but as it stands now it pales in comparison to 1Password and should be avoided.

This application has a very odd design that limits its usefulness to me. Specifically, it does not use the traditional MacOS paradigm of files and documents. This means that there is no way to maintain (in the traditional MacOS sense) several different data files. The application does implement its own 'users' system whereby different sets of data may be kept, but it is clumsy and unintuitive. I have not been able to figure out a way to have two sets of data open at the same time from different 'users'. If the app used the standard document based paradigm, them it would simply be a matter of saving or opening one or more distinct document files... Unfortunately, this does not seem to be possible with SplashID for MacOS X desktop.

Release 5.2 is an iPhone dependent release. I just want the regular Desktop application. I am running 5.1 and it doesn't require an iPhone or iPod Touch. This new release 5.2 requires you have the iPhone or iPod attached before setting up.

In the past year I upgraded to v4 to sync with my palm. But this version has been plagued with duplication of entries during the sync process that is very frustrating. Splashdata support has been virtually non-existant these days. Posts to their forums and emails to their technical support go unanswered. In my eyes Splashdata had been one of the best developers for the Palm with Mac destop support. Now I am looking for another password manager to replace it. Very sad.

I agree with the post below, plus the fact that this software has not been updated in 3 years. Reminds me of Palm Desktop...

Reliable and stable; flawless synchronization with a few different Palm models over several years. I disagree with the previous "great interface" comment since the desktop UI is sadly underdeveloped for OS X. A couple examples: * No support for changing multiple entries at once (e.g. categories or masking fields). * Uses several non-standard shortcuts (e.g. command-M for Mask/Unmask instead of Minimize).
