1Passwd, the online form-filler/password rememberer has now got a killer feature up its sleeve. It now supports syncing of your passwords to the iPhone. So, what does this mean?
Simply put, you can now access your passwords/personal data easily on your iPhone. So when you’re using the Safari web browser, you no longer have to remember your passwords to your email/social-networking/banking accounts.
Of course, storing personal data on a portable device will certainly raise a few eyebrows. What if the device is stolen? What if someone manages to even gain access to it for a few moments (enough to copy stuff off it)? Thankfully, your data is encrypted with a 448-bit Blowfish with Cipher Block Chaning (CBC) and randomized salt, according to a posting on the 1Passwd blog.
When you push “Sync to iPhone”, the application creates a Safari bookmarklet. Said bookmarklet is then encrypted with an access code of your choice. Once you unlock it on your iPhone, you can gain access to all your data. The good news is that this method does not require any shady hacks or cracks. It’s simply a Safari bookmarklet that works just like the rest of your bookmarks (except with some extra code to make it all work). Check out some of the screenshots of the software in action.
You can grab the 1Passwd 2.5 Beta right now, or you could always wait a couple of days until Automatic Update grabs the latest version. Oh and remember that 1Passwd web app we were talking about sometime ago? I’m glad to announce that the beta invites will be going out soon. So if you managed to win one during our giveaway, get ready to check it out!
