    I got to beta this (I think I mentioned in another thread). I absolutely love how DataVault will fill in websites.

    Fantastic update!

    Does it auto fill log ons for APS or just the websites?

    Maybe I'm missing something but what good is it on an IPhone when I use mostly APS, rarely go to the actual website?

    Hi crf8,

    Website logins can't be used with apps. DataVault can facilitate logging in with an app using app switching, see user guide for more detailed description.
    http://www.ascendo.co/datavault/iphone/user-guide.html#LoggingIn

    We are considering implementing app logins in future versions but the techniques we have looked at involve a proprietary keyboard and are a bit cumbersome.

    Thanks for the update! New logins are quite useful.

    I've turned on Touch ID but DataVault is still asking me to enter my password occasionally. Is that normal?

    Hey Aidoon, Thanks for your question!

    You can configure how often DataVault requires you to enter your master password by tapping on the Tools & Settings icon (bottom-left) > Security Settings > Require Password (Once per session, Daily, Weekly, Monthly), see screen below.

    @marcbolh

    Hello Marc,
    I am sorry, if it is mentioned somewhere on your website or here, in MR, I might've missed it, is it possible to store data files (notes, etc.) and pictures in Datavault?

    Thanks.

    P.S.: I am looking for a new password manager as my preferred one, Locko is discontinued.

    Hi UIenspiegel,

    Version 6.5 of DataVault for iOS won't allow you store files and images, however it is something we have already delivered in another app and we are working on including it in future versions.

    If you would like to participate in our beta program, please direct message me.

    Marc, Ascendo

    I agree that this is one of the best new features and can see the DEV is working hard to give everyone a good product.
    --- Post Merged, Jun 3, 2017 ---
    I always appreciate it when a DEV stays on top of his apps and his CS is top notch.vThat is why this is the only password app I use.

    Just remember that if you configure it more than 'ONE PER SESSION' you will have to store your Master Password in the IOS Keychain.

    Is Ascendo planning to force users to move their data to the Cloud like some other cheeky vendors?

    Absolutely not!

    We have received numerous inquiries about this of late. I would like to take this opportunity to confirm our strong commitment to a Distributed Security Model © which stores confidential information on your device, not in the Cloud.

    For more information, please read my blog article at the link below.

    I'm currently a KeePass user but I was looking into your website and wanted to check out the App on my laptop and notices the App Store link you are using in e.g. iOS FAQ and the earlier posted blog link don't work. It might be good for existing and new users to update that or they might think the app is no longer in the App Store while it in fact is.

    Thanks for reaching out! I checked the link you are referring to and it works for me from Mac/Safari and iOS/Safari.

    http://appstore.com/datavaultpasswordmanager

    Are you trying to access it from a different environment?

    I'm using Windows devices indeed and I would expect that it would show the App Store direct link then as well but it doesn't.
