Minimalist overview

Minimalist is designed exclusively for Mac, iPhone and iPad to take advantage of the power, speed, and security built into Apple platforms. Apple's native app technologies are used to make Minimalist intuitive, fast, power efficient, and super secure.

Features
  • Sync via iCloud - Minimalist keeps all your data in sync across iPhone, iPad, and Mac using the iCloud account you already trust. Your devices sync ridiculously fast and your data remains secure and private, even from us.
  • Pay once with one-time purchase - Tired of subscriptions? Yeah, we get it. That's why Minimalist offers a One-Time Purchase along side an Annual Subscription for iPhone, iPad, and Mac. Choose the purchase option that's right for you!
  • Autofill without browser extensions - Minimalist supports Apple's AutoFill system already built-in to iPhone, iPad, and Mac. No browser extension required. Quickly and securely sign-in to websites and apps without revealing your browser content or browsing history.
  • Generate 2FA codes - Securely store and generate 2FA codes directly in Minimalist. No additional authenticator app required. All your login information lives in one place, available on all your devices.
  • Secure & private - Industry standard 256-bit encryption and end-to-end encrypted sync means your data remains secure and private, even from us.
  • Generate strong passwords - Easily generate strong, secure, unique passwords for all your online accounts. This way when one account gets compromised, the others remain safe.
  • Super fast unlock - Unlock Minimalist quickly and securely using Touch ID, Apple Watch, or your Master Password.
  • Shared family purchase - Share your Minimalist purchase with up to five family members via Apple's Family Sharing.
  • Made in canada - Minimalist is designed and developed by a devoted team in Canada with honesty and integrity at the core of everything we do.

Note: Minimalist is free to use forever with a 10 password limit. A One-Time Purchase or Annual Subscription removes the limit and enables Unlimited Passwords on all your devices including Mac, iPhone and iPad. Purchases can be shared with up to five family members via Apple's Family Sharing.

What’s new in version 3.1.1

Updated on Jun 20 2022

  • A few versions ago we inadvertently introduced a performance issue which made virtually EVERYTHING slower. Amazingly not single person complained! Still, it's been driving us crazy!!! Well, we've found the culprit and have corrected it. Minimalist is now blazingly fast once again!
  • Apple recently made a small change to how AutoFill extensions work which unfortunately caused a number of issues for Minimalist AutoFill. We thought we had caught them all, but apparently a few snuck by. This release fixes an issue where the "keep unlocked for a period of time" setting was not being respected when using Minimalist AutoFill. We've also fixed an issue where using the enter/return key to select a login item in Minimalist AutoFill sometimes triggered an infinite loop as if the enter/return key was being repeated pressed, over and over again, forever. Special thanks to Feek for helping us identify and fix these issues.
  • We've updated the one-time password generator to support the digits=7 parameter when using the otp url scheme as a secret. Use of this configuration is pretty rare, so please don't worry if you're not familiar with these terms or concepts, you can safely ignore them. The bottom line is Minimalist will now generate the correct one-time passwords in even more situations! Special thanks to James C. for requesting this.
  • Importing data into Minimalist has been improved as well. You can now import data from DataVault (by Ascendo). We've also improved the Passwords Plus importer to attempt to import username and password data into the standard login fields where possible. Special thanks to Kay W., Dwight K., and John K. for making these suggestions.
  • Finally, we've made a number of small usability improvements such as preventing the password generator popover from dismissing when the background is touched by accident, adding an Open in Browser option to the context menu for items in the list, adding instructions for disabling Minimalist AutoFill in the associated settings screen, and updating email handling to support non-Apple email apps such as HEY. Special thanks to Rishabh D., Wayne R., and Andrew C. for these suggestions.

Password managers swim in a crowded pool. For many years I used 1Password but never with much pleasure, partly because although it was full-featured and did the job it seemed inflexible and the small type was hard to read.When they brought in a subscription I looked harder at the alternatives. after trying (and liking) Bitwarden for a while, I have settled on Minimalist which is at the other end of the spectrum from 1P: it is bare bones, very streamlined in operation (instant search/filtering, autosave) and has a beautiful clean GUI with a range of font sizes and infinitely flexible form fields. It has changed the way I work for the better: forget categorisation and marking of records, rely on lighting fast search and cleaning your list to optimise this. Browser auto-fill only works from Big Sur up (though it is seamless on iOS), but Safari’s own autofill takes care of most log-ins anyway. As a way of managing passwords and other sensitive data minimalist has the distinction of being the first app I actually enjoy using.

I've been using Minimalist for nearly a year, switching from 1Password, and absolutely love it. So much more streamlined and focused than 1P, Bitwarden, and the numerous other apps I tried. And I LOVE that I don't have to have a browser plugin for it to work.
