When it comes to online safety and passwords, I live and die by a password manager. I use one on my PCs, as well as my Android smartphones and tablets. This way, I always have my passwords with me, and I only have to remember one (to get into the password manager). In fact, I've never even seen some of my passwords when I use a generator.
This contest is now over.
The final results are listed below. If you've won, you will be contacted in the near future. Congratulations!

If this is the type of secure password storage you need in your life, look no further than Handy Apps' new Password Wallet. Exactly as its name implies, Password Wallet is a safe, secure, digital locker for all of your passwords. It can even run in "stealth mode," so an icon doesn't show up in the app tray – no one will have any idea it's installed.
So, how do you access it? Through a innocent-looking calculator widget, or by inputting a specific key code into the dialer. Either option will call on Password Wallet. That's just one layer of security, though – PW also encrypts all data with AES-256 encryption. That means you can feel safe using its built-in cloud storage features to store your passwords in Google Drive or Dropbox, too.
The list of data able to be stored in PW isn't just limited to passwords, either. It can handle credit card info, bank account credentials, IDs, passports, email accounts, membership info, or basically any other text-based information you may need to keep locked up tight.
Best of all, the app features a floating window so you can see your info when you need it – no need to switch back and forth to ensure you're inputting the information correctly. That's a godsend in many cases.
There's a free version of Password Wallet if you want to try it out, but the full shebang will set you back a five spot. A small price to pay to ensure all your sensitive data is secure, don't you think?
To celebrate the release of Password Wallet, Handy Apps has graciously hooked us up with a brand-spankin'-new international Galaxy Note II (N7100) to give away. That's an unlocked GSM model for those who don't feel like keeping up with Samsung's ever-expanding lineup of absurdly similar model numbers.
To enter, simply follow the instructions in the widget below.
The giveaway begins now and will run for one week, until Tuesday, February 5th at 12:00AM (midnight) PT. After that, one (1) winner will be chosen at random. Gogogo!
