SplashID KeySafe Unlocks Your Cold, Security-Obsessed Heart
"Well, now, what do we have here? Generally a software company, SplashData
has now taken one of their best known software products and merged
it with a hardware product. The SplashID Key Safe is a 2 GB USB drive
made to fit on your keychain, but featuring a portable version of SplashData’s
well-known password protection program, SplashID. We’ve reviewed
various incarnations of SplashID on this site a number of times in
the past and we’ve always had good impressions of it. I’ve
always liked SplashID because it’s available for so many different
Shining Star Award
wins a battle of iPhone password apps in MacWorld review
"SplashData has been writing versions of SplashID for other platforms
and mobile devices for 10 years, and its experience shows in this iPhone
app. While eWallet offers more control over the presentation and storage
of your data, its interface is complex, and it takes time to master. SplashID
has a simpler interface, a very usable search function, and most important,
the ability to synchronize your private data between a Mac (or PC) and
your iPhone—entering data once instead of twice is an appealing feature,
especially if you have a lot of secret data to track."
Review of SplashID for iPhone
February 25, 2009 by Erik from Chicago, IL
Although it may seem expensive to spend $29.95 to have an
application that the BB already covers by default, but it's well worth
the price. I have had to retype once 175 entries into a BB.... never
going to happen again. This application syncs the application nicely
over bi-directionally, but you will need to have BB Desktop Manager installed.
You can backup the database onto your computer or flash drive. The application
is very customizable as well. I'm very happy with this purchase, it definitely
makes it easier to store passwords where you need it most, in a secure

Handy product. OUTSTANDING support!
I have used SplashID for some years and have just upgraded
to the latest version. It has proved very useful for storing all my private
data and passwords. There were a couple of issues originally and now
with the upgrade (probably my fault!), however the support each time
has been nothing short of outstanding. The responses were very quick
and the instructions very clear. This time I dealt with Justin and only
wish that other companies would offer such excellent customer support.

OUTSTANDING !!! Fully Customizable !! Easy to use !!!
What a fantastic, powerful, and easy to use application.
Hands down this is the best application to store all of my information
in one handy place. The desktop software is outstanding with every option
you could possibly want. Once it is synced to your device the display
is nothing short of awesome. No more digging through papers, drop files
or index cards. I installed this on my smartphone and using the desktop
interface within 20 minutes I had over 65 records all organized and at
my fingertips. Great job!

Fantastic - I use it every day!
Everything about Splash ID is tremendous!It installs easily
and flawlessly. I use it everyday for confidential information, such
as passwords, SSN's, credit card numbers, etc. It does exactly what it
is supposed to do, effectively and securely. The Desktop component makes
it far superior to other programs.
January 15, 2008 by a user from Arizona
It does what it's supposed to do.
I used to use Splash ID on a Palm device. This one for Blackberry
works just as well. I've been using it on a Blackberry Curve and have
been synchronizing it with Windows Vista without any problems.

Worth the Money
I use this program almost every day, on both my desktop
and notebook. Syncs with ease to my Treo 750 (WM) and previously to my
Treo 650 (Palm OS).

Works better than expected
I wanted to secure my personal data and when
I installed your SplashID program, I realized I now had a secure place
for all of my personal data. Great job and very easy to set up and use.

Wow! What service
I have been using SplashID for many years. Of course they
just came out with a new upgrade to version 4.0. Well lo and behold,
when I loaded up the new version I noticed a slight problem with the
new version. I immediately reported it and, guess what, it was repaired
overnight. Now that is what I call a "REPUTABLE COMPANY".
July 9, 2007 by Palmlover from El Sobrante
I love this software on my Tungsten t5 and now on my Treo680.
It's simple and efficient. I love the desktop part of it where you can
update, sync and you practically have your all your records in your pocket.
I can fill out a mortgage application with Splash instead of having to
look into millions of paper records.
June 2, 2007 by a reviewer from Austin, TX
Essential for Desktop as Well as PDA
I use this software almost every day. I store all the confidential
information that I need but don't want to leave lying around, like logins
(probably the reason most people buy this), credit card numbers, prescriptions,
serial numbers, registration codes... It is great for buying things online,
because I can log in, copy my credit card number, go back to my browser,
and paste it. No more tying out long numbers. And my passwords are with
me wherever I log on. I love it!
June 2, 2007 by Mark from Portland, OR
Meets my needs
Program works great. It's intuitive, syncs well with my
smartphone. It's also very configurable, so I can set it up to meet my
needs. I like the way you can print out a CSV file, so I can make a 'hard
copy' of my password info and file it away, just in case of computer
April 27, 2007 by Bill from Columbus, OH
Best password software that I have used. The Desktop software
alone makes it worthwhile. It greatly facilitates launching, entering
ID, & entering passwords on the PC as well as providing an excellent
interface for access on the Handheld. My favorite feature is the ability
to access website by launching to the website from the program and then
proving one click copying of login information. The customizable lists
and icons are great. Synchronization of encryption is quick and easy.
Importing and exporting is straightforward.
April 27, 2007 by Unita from Durham, NC
I've used this on my Palm Treo, Nokia e62 and now Cingular
8125 and have loved it! At first I did have trouble with the data file
so I wouldn't have to re-enter all of my information. But once I understood
how to save the file, transferring worked fine. Everything I use to save
on stickies and little pieces of paper are now stored in one location...
March 12, 2007 by a reviewer from Tampa, FL
A must for anyone with tons of logins, passwords, or registration
codes. Would be nicer with more icons available but overall great product.
I used it on my Pocket PC and it's now on my Dash. Great backup feature
too. Easy to use.
January 4, 2007 by a reviewer from Minneapolis, MN
Excellent! Just what I needed!
I've used SplashID on my old Sony Clie NR70 (Palm OS) and
it worked flawlessly. Now that I have switched to using a Blackberry
Pearl, I continue to look to SplashID for my needs to store important
id, passwords, etc. It's easy to install and use esp. with the desktop
app. that comes with it. Customer service is great too! You'll not regret
January 4, 2007 by a reviewer from the UK
Like the other reviewers, I've been using SplashID for several
years on different operating systems. Recently moving from Palm to BlackBerry
I was pleased to be able to export from one and import to the other without
a hitch. The software is reliable and having data available in a desktop
version too is a great help. The BlackBerry version seems even more configurable
and does everything I need it to.

Elegant design makes this a convenience as well as a necessity!
Before I abandoned my trusty Palm for a Motorola Q smartphone,
SplashID was the ONLY application that I checked to ensure there was
a compatible version. I have been using SplashID for years, and have
consistently found the developers to be responsive to and respectful
of their customers.
I have recommended the application to many people in my line of work (I
am a physician) because we have so many sensitive bits of information to
be stored (passwords to secure systems, etc) in addition to the usual personal
stuff. I put EVERYTHING in SplashID, from web logins to bank access codes.
I can print them all out to put in my safe deposit box, and they are flawlessly
synchronized between my Q and my desktop machine. The Palm to smartphone
transition was also effortless - I just exported an archive from the Palm
desktop client, and imported it into the Smartphone desktop client.

Clear, clean simple
An excellent product that does precisely what it says it will do, storing confidential data in a clear, clean simple format. I have to work with various forms of confidential data, and this makes it easy to keep. I strongly recommend it.
November 28, 2006 by a user from Houston, TX
I have SplashID on my Tungsten T3 and love
it. I had read another review that said it was "just a database
with encryption." But it is so much more. Everything has been thought
of. From being able to apply a separate icon to each record within a
Type, to being able to choose different views (number of columns shown)
for each Type. Yes, it is a database, but more like a limitless set of
customized databases within one slick program. I was even able to add
my custom icons from my T3 system to the SplashID icon set with a few
simple steps, and they appear on both my PDA and on the desktop. The
256 bit blowfish encryption is seamless and quick. I feel so much more
secure with it than just masking a built-in memo on my PDA The HotSynching
occurs if both the pda and the desktop application have the same password
so I don't have to stop and enter a password every time I synch. Couldn't
ask for a more complete program.
November 14, 2006 by a user from Houston, TX
I tried several -- I recommend this to friends!
I tried several password "databases" before trying
this in a trial. I stopped looking after this and now recommend this
one to family and friends. It syncs easily, and SAVED me when my hard
disk on my laptop crashed. I especially like the feature that generates
random passwords of a desired length and complexity -- my logins are
now a LOT more secure! I also love how fast it starts up. Great product!
November 7, 2006 by Steve Smith from Melbourne, Australia
Use SplashID with total confidence
I first used SplashID on a Palm Tungsten T many years ago;
then on my Axim X50v. Now I have it on a BlackBerry, its third different
operating system for me. This security program is as solid as a rock.
Intuitive to use and easy to navigate, I have never lost data on any
device in the 5 or so years I have been using SplashID. It does exactly
what it claims to do, and on the rare occasions I've needed support,
SplashData are prompt and helpful.

"Must Have" software that removes password
I have used this for years and it just keeps getting better.
Use the password generator to create unique passwords for different sites.
If one gets found, only that one site becomes vulnerable. Since I only
have to remember one password, I can use 10 digit passwords with special
characters, etc. and not be afraid of forgetting it. Field labels on
individual records can be modified to match where that data goes in a
logon screen, for example. Well worth the cost of the software!

#1 Password Manager Solution for BlackBerry
SplashID is one of the newest applications released for BlackBerry. SplashID has been around for many years on other mobile devices and is one of the best selling applications for Palm & Pocket PC. SplashData’s expertise in this field really helped to put together a complete software package. The software is very easy to use with a clean user interface. The most attractive part is most probably the desktop software which is shared between all the platforms. This is a strong software component which is the result of years of development.

Must Have for Security Conscious
I do not buy a lot of software for my Blackberry but SplashID is a must have. With laptops and BBs being stolen everyday I can't afford to have credit card information and other personal data in an unencrypted form. This product syncs nicely between my laptop and BB and I know I can burn an encrypted copy to CD so even if I lost both devices I still have my data.

Secure Password Manager With Good One Handed Navigation
I was looking for a password manager with encryption that made me feel comfortable
it was secure. Where other products use just 128 bit SSL, this product uses 256
bit Blowfish which brings me comfort in knowing that my information is secure.
I use it not only for passwords but also for other information I need to carry
around such as router configuration data, LAN configuration notes, etc. Nice
interface and great desktop companion. After months of research I can definitely
recommend this product.

Been waiting for this!
I used SplashID on Palm for years -- it's by far the best
password manager around. Switched to BlackBerry, but I kept my Palm
T3 just so I could keep using SplashID. Can't tell you how happy I
am to have SplashID now for my BlackBerry. Now let's hope they release
the other SplashData apps for BlackBerry users.
Review on Everything Treo - June 2006
Splash ID does for organizing your numbers and passwords, what your Palm Treo
does for organizing your life. If you simply need to remember your bank and or
credit cards, then Memo pad might suffice. If you feel overrun by frequent flyer,
rapid reward and numbers in general and are looking for a secure method of storing
this data, then I highly recommend SplashID.
Review on PalmAddicts - May 2006
The more I use Splash ID the more I ask myself why I did not start using
it before... Splash ID is an easy, totally customizable solution that will
change the way you store your confidential information.
ID almost got me shot!- Palm Addicts
I reached into my pocket to realize that I had left my wallet by the
door at home. I thought "S!@#" but then "Aha!” I reached
into my inside jacket pocket to whip out my Palm. I had my license number
in Splash ID! A glorious Palm moment! While I was having my glorious moment,
the police officer was having a different kind of moment. All he saw was
a guy pulling a shiny metal thing out of his pocket, in a manner that was
a little too excited. He yelled, "Freeze”. I looked up to see
a gun drawn in my face! So much for my glorious Palm moment. Even though
Splash ID almost got me killed, it makes up for it by saving my digital

So, what do you get for your $30? Convenience, security, versatility and customizability...
Not to mention one vital ingredient- peace of mind, in the knowledge that your
personal information remains personal.
Kickstart News Review -- Full
Splash ID is very user friendly but if a feature needs additional
explanation, there is a detailed user guide available to help. There
is only one problem with Splash ID and you may have already guessed it,
yeah, you need a password to sign in and access your information. Now
where am I going to write that one down? The point is that once you start
using SplashID you only have to remember one master password. Highly
useful software. Highly recommended.

I'm using SplashID for a year now,
because how are you supposed to handle the amount of usernames/passwords
without such a program?
I have now 100 entries in the database ...

- open the login page of the site you wish to connect to with a click on
- copy to clipboard: no one standing around you can see, what is entered
- configurable: you can configure the meaning of the fields / use the

Best password software I have found
Password software for my PDA is of no use unless it also
has a desktop application that I can use at my desk and this one works
16, 2006 by a user from Santa Fe, NM
Terrific software!! Highly recommended!!
As I continue to visit secure web sites, add bank accounts,
pins, the volume of passwords and user IDs keeps increasing. Not wanting
to duplicate passwords at important and secure web sites, I have used
different secure passwords. SplashID is the best software that I have
encountered for this problem. Data entry is easy and intuitive. The
password generator is terrific and allows use of letters, numbers,
punctuation and even pronounceable secure passwords. The desktop version
allows you to cut and paste the password for entry into the web site,
thereby reducing concerns about possible key loggers on your computer.
color coding for use on palms with color screens and the icons is an
plus. This software couldn't be better. I enthusiastically recommend
to anyone trying to find a secure and easy way to cope with the increasing
passwords that we encounter in day to day life.

Just the best personal information application!
Description: Tried several personal information applications and SplashID
was simply a cut above the rest. Main attraction was the intuitive
interface (software writers please note) and is highly configurable.
fact that the user can change, add, delete formats within the main framework
makes this a highly attractive and flexible application. The other great
feature is the twinned application with a desk top PC which makes data
a breeze. The other nice thing is that a backup of the encrypted data
held on the PC as well. I had a major crash with my PDA and had to do
re-set. Restoring the data file from the PC to the PDA was easy. A great
piece of software, highly recommended.
June 27, 2005 by Rich Casey from Dallas, TX
I have used this product for several years and it's a real winner. I use
this program several times a day. Great, FAST customer service as I moved
the software from one PDA to another, and it looks terrific on my new
LifeDrive. The PC version keeps in sync with the PDA version, and you
can also print a copy of all your passwords to keep in a safe place. This
is the one piece of software I cannot do without.

Use SplashID Now!
Let's keep it short. This is exactly what someone needs to organize and

this app and it's easy to use. Don't hesitate to try this, you'll be pleased

Have just upgraded to version 3.22. The software has been of enormous
benefit in allowing me a central storage space for web logins and passwords.
Also some personal info on my wife's clothing sizes which tend to change
over the years. It is as easy to use as point & click. The password
security is appreciated as is the desktop version that accompanies the

Just buy it - now
I don't know why it took me so long to select this product. However I
have done so (without trying any others) and it is just perfect. Get it
now and get the desktop version too! This will give you a backup and automatically
generate secure pasteable passwords.

Splash ID is the application I use every day. At last count I had 24
logins with strong passwords (hard to break but also hard to remember)
required by my work. Keeping this information straight along with all
of my personal data used to be a chore. I was using the memo pad for
a long time, but that isn’t secure or easy to search. SplashID
solved the problem keeping passwords, logins, bank information, and
hardware serial numbers easily accessible AND safe. Thank you to the
team at SplashData for making my life just a little simpler.

The magic formula against headache!
Like every business man, your brain is saturated by the amount of daily
information. You surely need to make a brake! Then choose to "externalize"
your memory on a digital card, like I did with this excellent software.
This is the best mean to secure every important information, code, number...
without the stress of learning it, and without the risk of forgetting
it because it's stored on your phone (PDA) and on your laptop! SplashID
made my life easier and more comfortable. This soft is the vault of all
my precious info and IDs and the benefits of it are huge. If you're not
convinced, try it! You can use it freely for a long time (without the
PC part of the service). I'm sure one day or another, you're gonna buy

Very easy to use UI on palm and PC, great software
More then enough possibilities, nice user interface, very easy to use.
I am very glad to be using this software.
January 9, 2005 by a reviewer from Roanoke, VA
Very easy to use application, very helpful in keeping up with info.
I have used this program for over three years now. I find it very helpful
in keeping track of a lot of information. Very accessible either thru
my PC or my PDA. Price is reasonable.

I have been using SplashID for 3 years, first on my Treo300 and now my
Treo600. This is a must! I could not function without it. I can take with
me all my personal information without fear of it being compromised. I
like the peace of mind to know that I have all account numbers, passwords,
etc with me all the time.
Great product Splash!

Couldn't live without it
My wife and I have been using SplashID for more than a year and we couldn't
live without it. We store all sorts of stuff - Web logins usernames &
passwords, on-line purchases, and on-line bill pay information and confirmations.
We bought the suite and my wife uses splash shopper all the time too.
Simple and easy to use.

October 28, 2004 by Howard P from Long Island, NY
Best application for Palm
Splash ID is buy far the best and most useful program for my Tungsten
E. I can recall my passwords and other data either on the Palm or my iMac
(OSX). The random password generator feature is great. And all this with
the security of encryption. Using Splash ID is easy and it allows me to
set up a different password for each account, which otherwise would be
impossible to remember. Well worth the investment.
August 28, 2004 by a Reviewer from Milan, Italy
One of the best software for Palm/Treo ever supplied.
August 26, 2004 by Kathy Hoover from San Jose, CA
SplashID is the best program that I have found for my Treo600 to keep
track of important information. I like the fact that it has a desktop
version that syncs with your palm.
August 23, 2004 by Al Myers in Europe
Excellent program. Solved many problems for me.
I am using SplashID on my Sony Clie TH-55. I have tons of IDs from emails,
online accounts, frequent flyer programs, and other online accounts. I
have tried to use various programs, but none were as functional or easy
to use as SplashID. It's a keeper!
August 16, 2004 by Bob H. from Northern Virginia
Very Capable, good import/export
I switched from eWallet to SplashID because I couldn't get eWallet to
run on my new Palm Tungsten T3. SplashID works reliably and, most importantly,
I was able to import my couple hundred eWallet passwords without too much
trouble (not trivial, but doable.) I've been using the SplashID trial
version for a couple weeks ago and just yesterday paid for the license
key when the trial expired. Feature-rich, very stable, highly recommended.

This is the best!
This is the best password application I've found. I tried out
about 10 different versions, and this one is undeniably the best. It had
the most features, including a Windows companion piece of software, and
it does everything I need.
