PasswordWallet updates all around!

We’ve been hard at work updating PasswordWallet for Mac, Windows, and iOS. We ran into a little snafu with some security measures with Apple’s new and improved iOS AppStore. But Apple was really great to work with us and fix it up! (It did take a few months though.) We apologize for the delay with this update.

PasswordWallet for iOS 4.8.21

Lots of work here! First and foremost we worked with Apple to make sure your data wouldn’t disappear when you upgraded. We did lots of TestFlight testing, and it worked. Users should always push that Backup button inside of PasswordWallet just to be sure!

We also added a new “Clear Clipboard” command, we fixed up the background color picker on iPad OS, and updated the look and feel to have all the latest goodness on your iPads and iPhones.

PasswordWallet for Mac 4.8.13

We made lots of small updates to restore the great experience you’ve come to know and love. The toolbars now look much better on Big Sur, we improved support for Bonjour discovery of other PasswordWallets, “separate-window mode” now works again, we fixed a small issue with registration, and we turned off all those annoying SmartQuotes.

Oh, and one more little thing:

ūüéČ PASSWORDWALLET IS NOW READY FOR APPLE SILICON! ūüéČ

(We don’t emoji a whole lot, but if the number of e-mails we’ve received about this is any indication, lots of people are going to be very happy about this.)

PasswordWallet for Windows 4.8.7

Our Windows guy did an amazing job here: We had to totally rewrite our Dropbox sync. It took forever, but it was totally worth it, because it works awesome now. And we fixed lots of little UI tidbits for a better user experience.

And because of security updates on our server, auto-update check broke for really old copies of PasswordWallet out there. So be sure to upgrade directly from our web site.

Enjoy!

Re-enabling Auto-Typing on mac OS

Apple’s superb mac OS has a few extra security features.  Before you can auto-type your username and password in to any application, you’ll have to grant permissions to allow PasswordWallet to auto-type. Sometimes mac OS forgets which applications have been granted this permission. This can happen if you have (or have ever had) multiple versions of PasswordWallet installed.

To re-enable auto-typing, do this:

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

  1. Within system preferences, select “Security and Privacy” and be sure to allow PasswordWallet to access “Accessibility” Settings per below:  (If PasswordWallet is already present, remove it with the “-” button and re-add it with the “+” button.  Be sure you’re adding the right PasswordWallet in case you have two of them installed.)

  1. Once done, PasswordWallet will be able to auto-type on Catalina!  If it doesn’t work, remove PasswordWallet from the list, restart your computer, and then re-add PasswordWallet per above.

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!)

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.
