TotalReminder - Passwords

Windows 10 version
Windows Phone 8.1 (older, discontinued version)

This Windows Phone application contains the password management part of the desktop program TotalReminder.

The idea behind this app is to have a single, secure and easy to access storage for all your passwords (in fact other "secrets" as pin codes, access codes can be stored here) while you have to keep in mind only one master password. You should use a fairly complex but easy to remember master password because it is used to encrypt all stored secrets so if you forget it all your data will be lost.
The "Save password" option in the login screen can be useful if you want to do a lot of editing in the app and for a short period of time you prefer no to enter the master password on every program start. However this is not a safe option to keep enabled: anybody using your phone can have a look into your passwords.

To assure the persistence of your data (think about lost / stolen phone) you should do a regular backup of the database to your OneDrive. The application offers a database restore too, a previously saved database will be brought back from the cloud to your phone. Please pay attention to the following:
- the current database is simply overwritten, so all passwords currently on the phone will be lost (this should not be a problem is case of regular backups)
- the current master password must be identical with the one in use when the backup was created

The desktop TotalReminder (v.6 and up) has a synchronization mechanism with the application using the backup-restore system presented above.
