Cross-platform Password Manager

Goodbye, Pocket.

For as long as I had an Android phone, I've always used as my password manager. It's been pretty reliable, easy enough to use, and just leverages my Dropbox account for database backup. It protects my passwords with a master password.

The only problem I had with it is it being only Android supported. The last update it had was back from May 2013. That's almost four years ago. It still works pretty well but I am at the point that I need to pull up passwords on the Mac or Windows and I don't and/or can't grab my phone so I needed cross platform support.

If I Were A Globe Load Scammer

Translation of message above:

You have been charged PHP 300 in your bill for calling a landline number using your postpaid plan. If you want to waive this charge, just text 300 CANCEL and send to 293644993836 and reply YES to the next message that you will receive to cancel the charge.
