Try the new version of KeyReel and get a bonus! (ENDED)

We're really excited about KeyReel 1.0.7, which allows you to import passwords from Dashlane, 1Password, KeePass, LastPass, or TruKey.

The new version also has better website parsing to ensure more of the trickier login layouts are detected. If you are using a password manager solution currently, try our superior password saving and auto-fill on sites like google.com, amazon.com, apple.com or tricky sites like cnbc.com, tumblr.com or cnet.com

We want to make KeyReel the best it can be for our users, so for the next 10 days we're offering a $10 gift card from Amazon or Starbucks (your choice) for up to the first 100 users who: 
  1. Get and install KeyReel app for Mac at keyreel.io
  2. Install KeyReel app on iPhone from the App Store
  3. Follow installation prompts and pair iPhone app with Mac
  4. Fill out the feedback form and choose the type of the gift card you would like to receive. Be sure to use the same email address you have used during registration. The feedback form will also request that you upload a screenshot as a proof of installation and pairing, for example (instructions for how to take a screenshot):

* Electronic gift card codes will be sent within 3 days after completed feedback is received.

What is a "Password Manager" and How They Differ

Security, particularly online, is a high priority for everybody. To be secure on the Internet, every user should employ a strong, unique password for each website. Consider—according to this blog, by 2020 the average number of accounts per Internet user will be 207!

While a computer user could keep all the passwords they need in some secret notebook, the best approach is to utilize a software solution. A password manager keeps passwords and other private data, such as credit card information, on a computer or mobile devices. These managers store data in encrypted form, requiring only a single secret key to decipher the database. Password managers maintain the login information of a user's various online accounts and, if desired, auto-enter data into login forms. By using a password manager, a user protects his online accounts with unique passwords for each in case a website with weak security is hacked. Password managers oversee a list of site credentials so a user won't need to remember multiple passwords.
