aWallet – An awesome Password Manager

Today, we are living in the world of Internet which has made our life easy, seamless and comfortable. We are fully dependent on Internet in our daily use. We used to make online purchasing, bill payments,money transfer by a Single Click! Isn’t amazing? But one common problem we usually used to face is that we cannot able to remember the “Passwords” for different web portals (Banking,Online-Shopping, Bill Payments etc.)

 I am very much thankful to “aWallet Developers” for giving us one of the finest “Password Manager” App in Android which is very much secure, simple and flexible.
MAIN FEATURES:
  • Cloud version (only): Synchronizes encrypted data with the Cloud: Dropbox or Google Drive.
  • Securely stores all the passwords, credit / debit card information, e-banking credentials, web accounts ,emails and other custom data.
  • aWallet comes with a built in Editor for changing or creating new data ‘Categories’ with custom icons.
  • Search within fields.
  • It doesn’t contain any advertisements.
  • Supports backup and restore of the encrypted data file to the memory card.
  • Exports unencrypted data in CSV format to the memory SD card..
  • It also has an ‘Auto lock’ feature that can be preconfigured for a specific span of time.
PRO FEATURES, available which should be purchased from Android Market. aWallet Cloud includes PRO features.
  • CSV Import
  • Password Generator
SECURITY FEATURES:
  • All data is encrypted, including Entry names, Category definitions and the data itself. Even the choice of Favorite Category is encrypted.
  • It follows AES and Blowfish algorithms with key sizes of 256, 192 and 128 bits. And also supports Triple DES with key sizes of 168 and 112 bits.
  • Uses a randomly generated ‘salt’ combined with the Master password. Salt helps to protect from off-line dictionary attacks.
  • The key to open the data file is created by combining your master password with the 512-bit ‘salt’. The result is hashed 1000 times by SHA-256. Repetitive hashing makes a brute force attack more difficult.
  • Supports auto destruction of the data file after a predefined number of unsuccessful unlocks have been tried.
  • Not applies to the Cloud version: Unlike other similar Android apps aWallet has no internet access permission (forever). The only permissions this app has is to access to the SD card to backup/restore the data file in case you lose your phone. SD card access is also needed to export to CSV file format. Permission is also granted to the Google Play billing service to allow for the optional purchase of the aWallet Pro features.
CONCLUSION:
aWallet is the most secure and flexible “Password Manager” in Android.It is very simple and easy to use. You can keep backup of your passwords in Cloud (DropBox,Google drive) as well and within any memory storage.
SUGGESTION
  • Try to take regular backups of your password, rather I would say, daily if possible. So that in case of any issues like mobile loss or theft, you can easily get all the passsword details.
  • Do not store your password CSV file in your mobile, after exporting keep the file in your other storage devices or in cloud. Because in case, if you lost your mobile no one can retrieve your personal password details from the ‘CSV file‘.
