This is an excellent Password Vault. My only suggestion is to make sure you read their emails. They don't flood you with them. My only only problem was self caused. I missed reading an email that was sent. On an upgrade and was frustrated when I upgraded. My fault not code books. Once I read the email they had sent prior to the upgrade. I had no problem with implementing.

I love Codebook and depend on it for total security in terms of all my password maintenance. I've been using it for several years and have it running on a Windows desktop computer as well as two Android devices (a phone and a tablet). When I recently ran into some challenges during the upgrade to version 4 of the app., I found the Codebook Support to be excellent. They worked with me patiently and in detail to ensure all my issues were resolved such that I can now successfully sync for instances of Codebook across all my devices. The application is user-friendly and a great solution to a problem that so many of us face with how to securely keep track of all our ever-changing passwords.

I couldn't live without Codebook! I have all my passwords, PINs, sensitive info, there and I access it EVERY. SINGLE. DAY! It's very user-friendly, it has the capacity to store a ton of stuff, and guess what? When I changed my laptop and/or phone, I didn't have to pay again for it, I just used the key/phone credentials to reinstall it. Their customer support is outstanding, responds very quickly and basically answers all of you questions! I've been using it for more than a decade and I will keep on using it as long as I can! I don't know what else to say than I LOVE IT! Highly recommend it, since it's a great bang for the buck!
