Securely managing and ever growing list of passwords and credit cards is difficult nowadays but tools such as 1Password and mSecure make it a bit easier.
Both passwords and credit cards
mSecure safeguards website logins, bank accounts and credit cards making it more than just a way to manage passwords - it's a tool to manage your security online. mSecure uses 256-bit blowfish encryption which is one of the most secure standards available to protect data.
MSecure also includes other neat security features such as an auto-lock to stop someone seeing your data if your leave your Mac unattended, strong password generator and a sync tool which the developer claims is as secure as cloud services such iCloud, Dropbox etc.
Easy to use - once its setup
mSecure can be a bit tedious to setup. There's no way to import passwords from an exported file but mSecure will prompt you if you want it to manage your passwords or credit card details that you enter. Once this is done, you don't need to worry about remembering them again.
The syncing with iCloud works pretty well although some users have reported problems and unreliability issues with this. However, not having to enter password details into your iPhone or iPad after having entered them on your Mac is a great timesaver.
Not as good as 1Password but solid
mSecure is very similar to 1Password but the inability to import an exported passwords file and the occasional problems with syncing mean it's not quite as reliable. However, users report that any problems they have experienced have been promptly dealt with by the developers of mSecure.
A very good all round privacy manager
If you want an easier way to manage passwords and credit card details, mSecure is a good choice.
