Let's Get Down to it Here! Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I have not installed any of these yet, but have been seeing users and the developers go back and forth about this product. Here's how I see it.
Plus: Sharing passwords. This is important! To those who don't like it, don't do it! You don't have to share your data! But the fact is, I'm the one who sets up all of the accounts and passwords on my wife's laptop and mine and I use the same info on both, since the purchases are made from the same bank account and are sent to the same address!
Negative: I don't like the idea of sending all of my data to any one server. Users these days spend a lot of extra time finding apps that won't do that. And let's face it, if someone can write your security software for your servers, then someone can hack it and since you advertise that you have all of our data in one place, you're a target for hackers and it happens all the time!
The thing is, we don't know what can happen with it once all of it leaves our computers and goes to someone elses, lock, stock and barrel and that is quite different than a company's server being hacked and only losing one piece of our info, for that one web site.
And to address the comment about your company being sold one day, if a company does buy this one, while they may not be eager to harm what the company does, there are a lot of stupid people who buy companies and radically change things and hose it all up. Or they are the type that thinks something new is automatically better and try it and there goes our security!
And the developer said that if this happened, it would be closely watched. BY WHOM??? YOU'RE GONE!!! And the truth is, you're not going to announce it before hand so we can jump ship, because that would be a condition of the sale and it would hurt your chances of selling the company to someone anyway. And yes, it would require an update to change the security on us, but so what? They'd offer it as an enhancement and so, we'd think it was an improvement, not knowing what has changed and just download it and then its too late! After all, they wouldn't tell us it's going to be bad for us. :)
Negative: I don't see where this app has the ability to store and pull up receipts and to a pinhead like me who is constantly trying to remember who I bought something from and when, this is a nice feature, especially since I can never find my paper receipts either! :)
So anyway, that's my take on it and I think, or at least I hope, that it sums up what people are going to great lengths to try to say to other users and to the developers. And both sides can argue with these points, but they are facts. They may not happen, but yes, they could, no matter how good one thinks their security is.
So I hope this helped to sum up what folks are saying. I also think that it doesn't make sense for any users to go off all crazy about "what a scam" it is, etc.. If they are telling you what they're doing, then by definition, it cannot be a scam. :) You have a choice. You are informed.
And for the developers, I don't think it makes sense to keep talking about your security being so great, because your type of security has been hacked before and will be again and you are a target spot, since your software is known to collect all of a users info, so it's like one stop shopping for hackers! I'm not blaming you for that. I'm just saying that realistically, if someone can write the software that secures you, then that means that there's also someone who can hack it! And so, unless your security was written by God, you are not truly secure! :)
