Never forget a password again: new app delivers three levels of encrypted security for free — New Zealand App developer Lookiimedia has just announced Mycena, a new password management app for both iOS and Android devices.
Designed for non-technical users to make saving and retrieving passwords fast and painless, Mycena provides up to three levels of password security, free for the first five passwords. Additional password storage is available via small one-time payments rather than monthly or annual subscription fees.
Mycena can be used on multiple devices including a mix of iOS and Android, and passwords can be synchronised via Mycena’s cloud service. However, O’Toole says the company recommends that users delete the cloud copy of their passwords once synchronisation is complete. Pricing is free to cover 5 passwords, NZ$4.49 for 20 passwords, NZ$7.49 for 50 and NZ14.99 for 120  (all are one-off costs, and multi device). In US dollars this is roughly $3.29, $5.48 and $10.97. Mycena has a blog with more info.
