If you’re like everyone else with an iPhone you certainly find yourself online quite a bit. With all of the services offered online you can find yourself overwhelmed by the sheer number of passwords to keep track of. Enter: the iPhone password tracking app.
Below you will find some pros and cons of the top the password managing apps available for the iPhone. These are the ones that I am most familiar with.

mSecure Password Manager
This password management app is among the most secure available for your iPhone. It boasts 256 bit Blowfish encryption, a type of keyed encryption that was designed in 1993 and, to date, has no effective cryptanalysis. Also included are 17 standard templates for data entry, integrated search, and the ability to share records via email, SMS or clipboard.
The one con of this app is backing up your data is done via iTunes which can be a very lengthy process.
Strip Password Manager
Strip has been protecting data on mobile devices for over 12 years. That’s a lot of time and experience for an application! This app offers a powerful data encryption and the ability to store information without templates. It’s a blank canvas for you to put any type of data into.
The first 10 entries are free but beyond that you have to pay to play. Now that’s cold.
SplashID Safe Password Manager
SplashID is an award-winning data vault application for the iPhone with over 500,000 users across the globe. It accepts all types of sensitive data including bank account numbers, passwords, credit card data, usernames and passwords. This is a highly secure application.
A couple of cons for the SplashID app are that the software forces you to upgrade, regardless how happy you are with the current version. On top of that it seems that tracking down tech support is a bit of a challenge.
Did I miss anyone on this list? What do you use for your password manager?
