Great app with awesome Zetetic support. What I like the most (besides password security, fingerprint sign in and syncing with multiple devices) is getting updates. Updates are the best - it's like getting new software for free. And with me being of questionable average intellect I would occasionally need some assistance with these updates. I would email asking for help and receive an answer in just a couple of hours. This is a rare find in the software world. Thank you Zetetic staff!!!

Longtime Codebook user and always happy with it. I appreciate that I can wireless sync on my home network with my home computer and not rely on (or risk) cloud storage. Also, just got a Pixel 6 two weeks ago and the biometric wasn't working. Let the developer know and they went out and bought a Pixel 6 to work on fixing the problem and less than a week after sending them a message they put out an update, emailed me personally about it, and the app is fully functional again!

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.
