Recently I started using Intel’s True Key application across a number of my devices. This includes my iPhone, iPad, Laptop and Desktop PC. I have used some password managers in the past but never really felt the requirement untill maybe the last 6 month, this is due to me not only having a lot of account, but because the passwords are different between them. This would regularly lead to me having to either reset the password using my email or lead to a text to my phone that would then let me log in.

I elected to use Intel’s True Key based on a few things, the first was that I was aware of the fact that Intel owned Mcafee security. This gave me the impression that unlike some of the other password managers out there this is backed by an actual security company. Which you would like to think has influenced the security and design of this product. And the second reason this application was the one I choses was that it able me to use it on all of my devices meaning I could always have a list of passwords with me.

I have seen some password managers that store the information on the devices it’s self meaning if you don’t have that devices or it was to break you could be without your list of passwords. The True Key application has a nice feel to it, it has not been made overly complicated and works well. One of the nice features is the password generator feature, meaning that you can generate a 30 character password using letters, numbers and symbols. This works well with the fact that on the PC True Key will prompt to log into your accounts meaning you don’t have to type out a 30 character password. This means your online accounts can be very secure and the only password you will have to remember is your True Key master password.

It also removes the potential for unauthorized access to any of the accounts you use online as it is common for people to have a note-book with all of their acount details in. This could lead to numerous problem in the form of fraud or having accses to your own accounts removed. When all you really need to do is use True Key, on the iPhone it will use the fingerprint to log into the application meaning you wont even have to type the master password!

Overall as password managers go that I have use True Key feels like the best on out there in my opinion. Not only is it a product from Intel meaning you know it is going to be decent in regards to functionality and quality. But it is not overly complicated to use and offers a ranger of features across a number of devices that I havent seen from any other password managers.
