Ever been in a situation where you can’t remember your private information and wish you could write them on bits of paper and stash them in hidden corners of your wallet? SPB Wallet is one of those handy apps that allow you to protect and remember valuable private information – including passwords, PINs, accounts, codes, credit card and passport numbers.
SPB Wallet was designed to contain customisable virtual card templates that look identical to those used on a day-to-day basis.
It ensures data protection with a 256-bit AES encryption and automatic lockup in the event that the application is left open. A random password generator secures the data further by creating secure passwords.
What makes this app even more practical is the possibility of sending an SMS or email, making a phone call, or visiting a website indicated on the card directly from the app by clicking the relevant smart card fields.
There is also cloud synchronisation with your Gmail account and you can enable access to the encrypted information from multiple mobile devices and desktops.
Pros: Secure environment to store vital private information.
Cons: Apps on other OS support enhanced features, Android version can't open any other wallet file extension than *.SWL
Verdict: A bargain to have on your desktop and Android synched via the Cloud.
