New Version of SplashID™ for iPhone Introduces Finger
Pattern Login, Expanded Icon Sets, Localized Languages, and More
LOS GATOS, CA - SplashData, Inc. today announced a major update to
its best selling SplashID password manager app for iPhone and iPod® touch.
The new SplashID version 5.3 includes a unique new pattern-based option
for accessing a user’s secure database of passwords, web logins,
account numbers, PINs, and other sensitive information. With this new
feature, a user traces a distinct finger pattern on the screen and
then uses that gesture rather than entering a traditional alphanumeric
password to launch SplashID.
The new version of SplashID also offers French, Italian, German, and
Spanish language support as well as optional additional icon packs
to customize records.
iPhone users, like everyone else, are juggling more and more account
numbers, logins and passwords, and while they need to be always accessible,
they also need to be completely secure. One simple way for an identity
thief to get complete access to a victim’s life is to steal their
phone containing unsecured passwords and account numbers.
The newest version of SplashID for iPhone keeps this information as
secure as ever, but makes it easier to access for the owner by using
a finger to create a distinct pattern on the screen. With millions
of possible patterns, it would be virtually impossible for anyone else
to "crack the code" and access the iPhone owner’s
most confidential information.
"For nearly ten years, SplashID has continued to be developed
and refined to address the latest technologies and the
ever-changing threats to our customers’ sensitive information," said
Morgan Slain, CEO of SplashData. "Using a finger pattern to unlock
SplashID helps solve this dilemma by making it easier for
our customers to obtain the information they need when they need it,
while making it more difficult for anyone else to access and steal
their data. Compared to traditional passwords, finger patterns tend
to be more random and therefore harder to guess."
With the widespread adoption of the iPhone in Europe, offering
localized versions of SplashID for French, Italian, German
and Spanish-speaking countries was one of the most requested
new features for SplashID. Labels, views, descriptions,
and other text now all appear in their specific languages.
The new version also enables users to add to the already
extensive set of icons built into SplashID by purchasing
expanded icon sets for 99 cents. SplashID also enables
users to create their own icons to represent their records.
Both features continue SplashID’s
long tradition of personalization and customization.
SplashID 5.3 for iPhone is available in the iTunes App
Store for $9.99. The mobile app syncs seamlessly with the
optional desktop companion software for Windows or Mac,
also updated today to version 5.3, which can be purchased
at SplashData.com for $19.95.
Over the past 10 years, SplashID has
grown to be the best selling password manager for mobile phones and
over 500,000 users worldwide. SplashID’s popularity continues
to rise as the number of user names, passwords, and account
numbers most people have to remember is rapidly multiplying.
At the same time, the risk of this kind of sensitive information falling
into the wrong hands has never been greater. SplashID helps solve this
dilemma by creating an encrypted digital safe on a mobile device, offering
the peace of mind of being able to access critical information
whenever needed while maintaining the security of 256-bit government-level
SplashID for the iPhone can sync with a user’s PC or Mac wirelessly
using optional SplashID desktop
companion software. The
desktop version offers even more powerful features, easier data entry,
and the ability to import existing SplashID records from other devices.
