I always wanted to use a password manager, owing to security concerns like Password Reuse and Password Strength. Tried a couple of them (including LastPass) but didn’t stick with them long.
I recently came across Myki and fell in love with it.
“Myki was inspired by my grandmother’s inability to remember her usernames and passwords,” recalls Priscilla Elora Sharuk, co-founder and COO, Myki. Indeed, the user interface is as good as it gets.
Some of the features I liked:
- No master password ftw (I’ve always hated the idea of a master password for some reason 😹)
- Linked to your phone number (just like WhatsApp)
- Data stored on smartphone, not cloud (my deal-maker! ❤️)
- Your backups are locally saved too.
- The only things being transmitted over the ether are the little end-to-end encrypted packets needed to keep your data in sync and to grant/deny access to passwords.
- Import / Export anytime (No lock-ins 🙌)
- Great interface (hits right in your geeky bones 🤓)
- Browser extensions for any platform
There’s autofill on the browser and Android, integrated 2FA authentication (to replace Google Authenticator; yes, you read that right!), a password generator, a built-in audit for your old and reused passwords, backups/restores, and it’s free! What’s not to like? 🤷♂️
Myki has recently been awarded PCMag’s Editors’ Choice Award. I’ve been using it for a few months now, and the experience has been nothing short of awesome! Give it a try and see for yourself. 🤩
Until We Meet Again…
