Secrets for Android is an application to securely store and manage passwords and secrets on your Android-powered phone. It uses techniques like strong encryption and auto-logout to help ensure that your secrets remain safe (assuming you use a good password!). Context-sensitive tips guide you along through its operation, making it easy to use.
The first time you start Secrets, you'll be asked to choose, and then confirm, a master password. Subsequently, you will need to enter this password before any of your secrets will be revealed.
If you forget your password, press MENU and tap "Reset password". Keep in mind however that this will delete all of your secrets! Try not to forget your master password.
After entering your master password, you see the main secrets list. To add a new secret, press MENU and tap "Add secret". A secret consists of the following information:
* Description. A short description of the secret, or the URL of a website. For example, you could say "Visa card", "Passport", "Driver's license", or "amazon.com".
* Id. A name or number associated with the secret. For example, this could be the Visa card number, passport id, driver's license number, or your login name on the website.
* PIN. Most sensitive part of the secret. For example, this could be the Visa card verification code or the password associated with the login name.
* Email. An email address associated with this secret.
* Notes. Any other information you'd like to store with the secret.
All information fields are optional. Enter as much or as little as you like.
When done, press BACK to save the secret. You can also press MENU to see more options.
Using your Secrets
The main secrets list shows all of your secrets, ordered alphabetically by description. Each entry in the list shows the description, the Id or email address, and the time and/or date of the last action that was performed on that secret. Tap a secret to momentarily reveal its PIN. Tap and hold a secret to edit it.
If your list of secrets is long, you can filter it by typing on the keyboard. Only those secrets whose description begins with the typed letters will appear in the list. Press BACK to clear the filter.
Should Secrets be running when your phone goes to sleep, you will be automatically logged out. The next time your phone wakes up, you'll need to re-enter your master password to continue. Switching to another application and returning to Secrets will also require you to re-enter your master password.
