Auto-typing on Mojave

Apple’s superb mac OS Mojave (10.14) has a few extra security features.  Before you can auto-type your username and password in to any application on Mojave, you’ll have to grant permissions to allow PasswordWallet to auto-type.

To do this:

1. The first time you auto-type, you’ll be presented with the following prompt.  Click “Open System Preferences“.


2. Within system preferences, select “Security and Privacy” and be sure to allow PasswordWallet to access “Accessibility” Settings per below:


3. Once done, PasswordWallet will be able to auto-type on Mojave!

PasswordWallet 4.8.8 for iOS

PasswordWallet 4.8.8 brings some great new features for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users.  We held back 4.8.7 because we had to use the extra time to finish up our new Dropbox support.

In 4.8.8 users will find great features like printing, smarter random password choices, better in-line documentation, better support for 3rd party keyboards in the notes view, and popping back from linked wallets works again (Whoops!).  And we squashed a memory leak that could have caused a crash on some systems. (Sorry!)

PasswordWallet 4.8.6 update for Mac OS X

We have a brand new update of PasswordWallet for macOS!  This update brings PasswordWallet to version 4.8.6 and is available from our either our web site or auto-update.  (Select the “PasswordWallet” menu and  then “Check for update”.)

This free update brings access to Dropbox through their new Dropbox API.  And we squashed a memory leak that could have caused a crash on some systems. (Sorry!)

PasswordWallet for Mac now requires macOS version 10.10 or later.

SmartWrap 2.9.2 64-bit for macOS 10.12 is ready!

Our very first product, SmartWrap, just got a much needed update.  The “smart” text cleaning application now works on 10.12 and its full 64-bit on macOS 10.12.

The upgrade is free for all owners of SmartWrap 2.x!

Yes, you need to upgrade to PasswordWallet for Mac OS X 4.8.5

If you’re running Mac OS X version 10.9 or later and PasswordWallet 4.8.4, it is critical that you upgrade to version 4.8.5 of PasswordWallet for Mac OS X.

We have two problems in version 4.8.4:

1. Our automatic update mechanism fails silently.
2. A few hours ago we discovered an inadvertent security hole and fixed it immediately.

Please download and install the latest version of  PasswordWallet from the URL below.

These issues only affect users of PasswordWallet 4.8.4 for Mac OS X.  If you’re not running this version that has been out for only a few days, please ignore this message.

You’ve placed your trust in us for 20 years of PasswordWallet. Nothing like this has happened to us before.  We’re contacting you about this problem because it’s the only responsible course of action.  Please accept our apologies.

Sincerely yours,
Sanford Selznick

Upgrading while running Mac OS 10.12

Our old upgrade method in the old PasswordWallet didn’t work right on Mac OS X 12, Sierra.  Good news: We were able to fix it server-side, so just check for updates again from the “PasswordWallet” menu, and all should be well!

While this issue didn’t affect all users, it did affect some of you.  So thank you for your patience as we figure out the idiosyncrasies in the new OS!
