Expensive password keeper?

or even with a subscription model?

That’s the new way developers try to assure their livelihood and secure against poverty. That stands to reason and ad a retired programmer I know what I’m talking about.

But …

Users disagree substantively over subscription models although it’s the only way to do a meaningful economic analysis.

How much money are they willing to spend monthly for their let’s say 30 apps?

Stats tell us that this is the average number of apps frequently used by iOS users.

Well, I personally do not have any subscription (except my 50GB iCloud plan for 0.99€/month).

It’s not only Apple’s SVP Phil Schiller promoting subscription based models but also he makers of the well-known password keeper 1Password. So it was time for me to scrutinize alternatives.

And it turned out that Apple’s built-in app NOTES is now my first choice. I don’t need and don’t want to use the integrated browsers of 1Password or OneSafe. I have Apple’s strongly encrypted Keychain to save credentials for websites opened in Safari.

But what happens if things don’t go my way?

Well, then I still have the list of essential access information in a locked note of Apple’s built-in App Notes. For free.

Thanks for paying attention.
