F-Secure KEY is a free password manager that is used to store all of your accounts username and password. It also allows to set master password to open its interface which makes it more reliable. And if F-Secure KEY remains inactive for some time, then its interface will be locked automatically. This unique feature makes it more useful and is not present in many similar password managers. You can store details for a particular account, like website URL, description, username, password, notes (optional), and can save them in F-Secure KEY. Apart from storing account details, it also helps to generate strong passwords for new accounts.
It also lets you synchronize data between phone (Android and iPhone) and PC, if you have installed F-Secure KEY mobile app on your smartphone. However, the sync feature is a paid feature.
Note: You can install its mobile app on your smartphone only if it is compatible with your device. For Android devices, it requires 4.0 or higher version, and for iPhones & iPads, iOS 5 or higher version is required. I tried to install this app for Android devices for 3 different phones, but each time it showed me that this app is not compatible with your device, in spite of the fact that mobile devices are running 4.0 and higher versions. Probably, there is some country restriction in place. So check yourself whether it is compatible with your smartphone or not.
