SplashID™ Brings Stronger Password Security to Android Smartphones, Plus Mac and Windows Desktops

LOS GATOS, CA - SplashData, Inc. today announced major updates to SplashID for Android smartphones, plus Windows and Mac desktops. The newest version of SplashID includes many major enhancements that make it easier to store and access passwords, PINs, account numbers, frequent flier numbers, and any kind of information that needs to be easily accessed yet completely secure.

Users of the Android version can now use SplashID’s automatic password generator which has helped users on other platforms increase their own personal security standards or stay compliant with their employers’ password policies. There are well-known standards for creating and maintaining secure passwords, including specifying length, type of characters, and frequency of password changes. Unfortunately, these standards become a hassle for users and non-compliance causes major security threats to both individuals and companies. With SplashID’s password generator, users are able to generate passwords based on custom criteria, and the app’s “strength meter” rates each password’s strength based on length and complexity.

Many Android users enjoy personalizing everything on their phones. SplashID Desktop now enables Android users to add their own custom icons to represent their records rather than only choosing icons from the application’s included assortment of stock images.

SplashID also now offers clickable URLs so that websites and email addresses can be launched from within the app on the handset, allowing users to not only retrieve a web-login and password, but to launch the browser and auto-fill the login information. This feature works with SplashID’s Browser Plug-In, which adds a search box and Web Login picker the user’s web browser. This feature replicates the web auto-fill functionality from the SplashID desktop, but as an installed plug-in for Internet Explorer (Windows) and Safari (Mac).

Many user records need to be easily shared among friends, family or co-workers from time-to-time. SplashID now makes it easier to email records to other users directly from the user’s handset.

The Android version of SplashID will sync wirelessly and automatically with desktop versions for both Mac and Windows, both of which have been completely revamped in terms of improved security and user interface. Data security now includes both AES and 256-bit Blowfish encryption and field masking offers additional protection for sensitive data like passwords.

The desktop version now also offers Smart Types, which offers a quick and easy path to access a user’s most popular records. The app offers three Smart Types, Most Viewed, Recently Modified, and Recently Viewed, containing the latest 10 accessed records.

The Android version of SplashID is a free upgrade, while the Mac and Windows upgrade is $9.95 for current users. New SplashID users can purchase the handset version from the Android Market for $9.95 and their choice of the optional Mac or Windows desktop apps for $19.95.
