Icecream Password Manager
Icecream Password Manager is a free app that can manage your passwords, credit cards, identities, software licenses, secure notes, driver licenses, passports, bank account and FTP accounts. The app is able to securely protect your data with AES-256 leading encryption, so there’s no need to worry about the privacy of the created items. As with the other titles in our selection, you only need to remember a single master-password. A feature we really like is that you can synchronize the vaults created via Dropbox, and the app supports the creation of multiple vaults for separate users. Another nice touch is the Autolock feature that can be set to the users’ preference. Like ease of use? Then you’re in luck. Icecream Password Manager also supports browser plugins that allow you to gain instant access to all the stored data right from your selected browser.
