Security and privacy
When it comes to keeping your passwords private, Myki does a great job. Unlike the majority password managers on the market, Myki offers more than just great encryption.
Offline password manager
Let’s start by stating that Myki is not a cloud-based product. Meaning, your data is not stored on the cloud to make hacking your account incredibly tricky.
What is more, in the unfortunate case of losing your device, you would still be able to restore your passwords. Myki stores backups on every device that the product was installed on. Therefore, if your phone gets stolen, you’d access your passwords by logging in on a computer.
I also like the fact that you can create backups manually.
Myki uses the well-known AES-256 encryption, which is excellent if you want to keep your passwords secure. This is one of the most reliable encryption ciphers on the market today.
2FA and biometric
Myki uses two-factor authentification (2FA). This means you having to confirm your login with an additional step: entering a mobile pin code or using a biometric login.
As for biometric logins, Touch ID and Face ID are both available. They, together with a mobile pin code, save you from having to reenter your Master Password over and over again.
Myki has a decent reputation. Its users give it 4.4 stars of 5 on Google Play. The results are great, especially given the fact that the naysayers may simply not be impressed with minor details that won’t spoil the overall experience of using the product.
Myki also has a password generator. You can test it out on their website:
The Password Generator is naturally available on desktop and mobile apps, as well. Here’s what it would look like on your Android:
The feature is easy to use – all you have to do is select what should be included in your generated password (numbers, capital letters, symbols), whether it should be pronounceable, and what length you would prefer.
Using a high-quality password generator both saves your time and increases the chances of having a robust password that hackers would have a tough time taking over.
Apps and ease of use
Myki supports a wide variety of platforms and devices. Let’s look at the most widely used ones.
Myki works on Windows, Linux, and macOS. You can get each app on the password manager’s website.
Here’s how your desktop will look once you download and install it:
You can now explore the app – and I’ll tell you more about some of its features below.
Myki has browser extensions for Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera and MS Edge.
Installing the extensions is no rocket science – if you have done it once, you’ll do it again:
Simply go to the website, click on your chosen browser, confirm the installation, and there you have it – your chosen extension is installed.
Myki is available on both Android and iOS. You can get the apps on Google Play and the App Store, respectively.
Once you download the app and sign in, you get this window:
You can start adding your first items by pressing the + icon.
Once on the app, you can also add other devices or get the browser extensions:
You will also find extensive Settings – feel free to explore them:
How to use Myki
Using the Myki password manager is easy. Let’s look at how to do that from installing and setting the product app to exploring its most useful features.
Installing and setting up Myki
First of all, go to the password manager’s website and download the app for your chosen device.
Once you do that, you’ll get to this window:
Here you could scan the QR Code or press Create New Account.
However, to create a new account you’d have to provide your phone number. Most of the password managers on the market are OK with their users’ emails and Master Password. Myki is not, and I have a feeling some potential users might not like that.
If you are OK with providing your phone number, complete the registration, and after that, you’ll be sent to this window:
From here on, you can explore your vault and all the features of Myki. I suggest you start with exporting and importing your passwords.
Import and export with Myki
To export your data, you need to go to your Window’s app Settings, and then to General Settings.
Once you are there click on Export data, and you’ll be able to choose the location to export your Myki information as a CSV file:
To import passwords, use your Myki browser extension.
Here are the steps you should follow:
- Click on your Myki browser extension
- Go to Advanced Settings
- Click on Import Items:
4. Select one of the three: Passwords, Payments Cards or Secure Notes:
5. Choose the service you will import from:
6. Drag the previously exported CSV file into the box:
And that’s all there is – your passwords are imported.
Myki has an autofill feature. Meaning, all your 2FA tokens will be securely stored and filled for you whenever you need them. I find this feature an incredible timesaver.
You can enable an autosave feature on your apps. When on your mobile device, all you need to do is to click on Enable App Auto-Login:
Myki is a free password manager. However, if you want to use it for Teams, you can:
Teams will cost you $3.99/month per user if billed annually, or $4.99/month per user if billed monthly.
Free vs. Teams
Paid Myki is dedicated to businesses. Therefore, when opting for it, you get to share it with your colleagues.
If you’re not sure how long you’d be using Myki, opt for a more expensive monthly plan, and cancel afterward if you’re not content.
If you like the product and want to have it for the long run, choose the less expensive yearly plan. In such case, you’d have to pay for 12 months in advance.
When using Myki, you have the following support options:
You can start by looking through articles – just start typing in your issue, and you’re most likely to get an article suggestion on the topic. If that won’t work, leave a message to the Myki team. They promise to answer within several minutes.
I needed some clarifications, therefore I used their chat option via the mobile app. They answered within 2 minutes with straightforward and clear guidelines. Way to go!
One thing to mention – the live chat option works fine for mobile devices, but if you’re on your desktop, you’d have to provide your email to get an answer.
All in all, Myki is a great password manager with key features to keep your passwords safe.
The most important advantage it has is being an offline password manager. The fact that the possibility of being hacked is reduced significantly is reassuring.
Myki’s autofill and password generator are also great – both features are something I look for in a high-quality product.
When it comes to downsides, I would appreciate more extensive pricing options – meaning a Family plan would help a lot when sharing passwords with the whole household.
Other than that, I find Myki to be an excellent choice – both for newbies, and those who are not satisfied with their current password manager.
