    Hi All,


    We are thrilled to share awesome news with you! We are launching new very ambitious project! It is called Swordbox- an ultimate password manager. It is aimed on helping you keep your personal data secure, properly stored, and easily accessible from all of your devices.

    Swordbox doesn’t store your passwords, but creates a super safe database that is securely kept in your Dropbox folder. You don't need to go through any registration process, all you need is your Dropbox account.


    Swordbox thoroughly encrypts password database, protects it with two-step verification, and can lock itself based on user inactivity. Only the person who knows master key can access the passwords, developers don't have any access.


    Swordbox will be available for Windows, Android, Mac, and iOS.

    Find more information here.

    Thanks for the license. I've used eWallet on my Apples for years but will be adding an Android device so this will come in handy for sure!

    TBH get some respected press reviews or corporate endorsements, otherwise what you say may be true, equally your app could pipe all my passwords and personal data direct to the dark web...reputation is all in a password manager.

    I am not thrilled. As far as I am concerned Eltima Software is a dubious company that should be avoided - especially for something like a password manager that stores its database on Dropbox only.

    According to their privacy policy page this company seems to be based in Germany and according to their main website eltima.com they seem to be sitting in in the Caribbean on Saint Kitts & Nevis. However, the domain eltima.com is registered through a Ukrainian "privacy protection service" that keeps the responsible people behind Eltima Software in the dark (or should I say "darknet"?). It is basically unclear who these people are.

    I think anonymous domain registration is questionable for any serious company that wants any business with the general public, and in the case of a cloud-based password manager I would say it is completely unacceptable.

    Hi!

    Thank you for pointing to this incongruity. But I would like to draw your attention to the fact that any "darknet" is out of the question. Like it is indicated on our site, we have absolutely no access to your passwords or personal data. We do not store the data. We just give you a tool for your password storage and management. We even do not ask you to go through any registration. So, there is no way we could get access to your data, and we consider it one of our main benefits.

    So tell us how your product is better than an established and trusted product such as 1Password that has an excellent track record, multiple sync options, and versions for every major OS and browser?

    No offence seriously, but i don't come to rust apps through corporate backing or press reviews! Corporation is interested in making money and they could care less what happens (they have so much legal protection based o note fact that a corporation is a person) and the press don't get me started.

    For me it is about personal experience and the word on the street.

    Hi! Thank you for your question.

    Please wait until the product is released and you will be able to check all the advantages by yourself.

    Hi!

    That is why we would like to underline once again that we will not have any access to your database. Only you can access your information. Swordbox doesn’t store your passwords. The database is securely stored in your Dropbox folder and only you know the master key.
