jVault is an application designed to store sensitive information on the Android smartphone and tablet devices. Passwords, bank account numbers, PINs, insurance cards, and other private data can readily be available at your fingertips. All data is stored using the AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) format (adopted by the US Government and now used worldwide). As such, your data is safe in the event of a lost phone handset.

Multiple "wallets" can be created in jVault, each with "cards" of data grouped in individual categories. With jVault, you can easily recall important information on your Android device in an instant. A search feature is available allowing you to search all the cards for a specific text string, making it easy to find information among numerous cards.

Cloud backup is available to backup and restore your data using your personal Dropbox online account. All data is encrypted, and stored in your personal Dropbox account (never stored on a 3rd party server).

jVault is a well-established password manager and has been used by many smartphone users over the past several years. jVault started as a Palm WebOS app (winning the "Top Hot Apps" Award) before being ported to the Android platform.

    i used this on my palm pre. i like it a lot then and now. i've had several occasions were the app doesn't lock after the "inactivity timeout" period. hours pass, i unlock the phone, and can sometimes resume from the "recen apps" list.
