2Safe provides a simple way to store your passwords

Published by at

There are multiple password management apps available in the Windows Phone Store, including well known cross-platform apps such as KeeperSplashID Safe, and LastPass, but if you're looking for a minimalist free option then the latest addition to their number, 2Safe, may be just what you are looking for.

2Safe is based around a two screen pivot view. One page lists the password, and the second page controls the apps' settings. New password are entered by tapping the + button on the toolbar and inputting a description (name), website, username, and password.

The settings page controls both whether the password is protected by a password itself and what happens when you tap on an entry in the passwords list. You can opt to copy the password to the clipboard, copy the password to the clipboard and exit the app, or copy the password to the clipboard and open the relevant website in Internet Explorer.

Most of the time all you need is a single tap on an entry to get the information you need, but there's also the ability to long press on an entry, which pops up a context menu with options to edit or delete the entry, or to copy any of the entered data fields (password, username, website) to the clipboard.


2Safe has been published by JC Mobile Solutions, the same developer behind the well regarded 2flicka app, the latest update for which we wrote about earlier today. 2Safe will not be winning any plaudits for its feature richness, but sometimes less is more, so it may be worth checking out if you only have a handful of passwords to keep safe and prefer a minimalist style to your apps. 

JC Mobile Solutions doesn't provide any information on how data stored in the app is protected, so some caution is required, but if you're happy with the password protection provided by the app (and Windows Phone's own built in data security) then you should be happy enough.
