Default Password Keeper - How Secure?

Please Login to Remove!

I hope to get a professional estimate of how safe Password Keeper really is. If I select a good password that meets really robust password criteria, is it safe to keep full credit card and bank information in the program? This is not attached to a BES - straight BB Internet.

I use it for all of that stuff as well! I also password my device and have roblok installed as an additional security measure!

In addition, if you enter the incorrect password 10 times, it will wipe all data from within password keeper.

Wirelessly posted (VZW Storm, ATT Bold)

It meets dod standards and just like stated above it will wipe all info on 10 failed attempts. It is only as secure as your master pw
