    How good is SplashID for Palm OS to keep passwords and account info secure? What is Blowfish encryption? If I were to lose my Palm, would all my data likely be stolen and used?

    If someone stole your pda, they would have to be able to hack into SplashID to get your information. Chances of that happening are very low. I keep all my information including credit card numbers in SplashID.

    I use it also and haven't had a problem yet. Also haven't found found any hacks or a way to crack it. I feel pretty secure using it.

    And you can use it from your computer desktop, in both PC and OS X platforms?

    That's correct. The desktop companion is as good as the palm app, and they tie together well. I very highly recommend splashid.

    I can only comment on the Windows version, but their webpage says it is also compatable with Mac OS 9.2 or later.

    I have SplashID, and love it. There's also an app called "free wallet" which is supposedly the same idea. Don't know how good it is. Find it at

    Since I keep "sensitive" stuff, I prefer to pay a few bucks and feel secure.

    FreeWallet only allows you FIVE entries - it's crippleware. Besides, the interface on eWallet / FreeWallet isn't as clean as SplashID. My 2 cents...

    I have SplashID and find it very useful. Syncs with no problem with OS X.

    Just be sure to make a backup on your Mac as the main file is kept in the Palm folder (which I trashed once unknowingly dumping my SplashID file as well)

    I've had SplashID for some time now, I think it's a great app. Be sure to set as long a password as possible to make it secure though (preferably using a combination of letters and numbers).
