I am Yash Gadhiya, creator of HexaVault. Let me tell you why I created HexaVault. I was frustrated with available password managers on the internet. LastPass, Dashlane, 1Password etc. None of them allowed me to add additional details about any type of information. I wanted a simple password manager which would allow me to add any number of details in key-value pairs.
LastPass, Dashlane et al. are very good password managers. But they are good at storing mostly one thing – passwords. I wanted something more. Not just a password manager but a personal information organiser. One where I could store all my financial accounts, membership accounts and such. Yes, these apps allow you to store information more than passwords but that is such a half baked and poor executed feature, it almost seems like it was added just for the namesake.
Here is the template for adding a credit card from LastPass. There are some predefined fields for storing most common type of information but there is no way to add anything else. If I wanted to add my username and password for accessing the card account online, I can’t store it with the credit card details. I can’t store a secondary password or PIN or any other security or other information I may have associated with my card.
Here is the add credit card template from HexaVault. Not only does HexaVault have way more predefined fields, it allows adding multiple custom fields where you can provide your own label and provide the value for the field.
That is the biggest advantage of HexaVault. It is a key-value store of information. It is simple. It is customizable.
LastPass has many features when it comes to password management, but all those features are of no use if I can’t use it for storing whatever else I want. HexaVault will eventually get there in terms of those additional features as well. For now, there is one thing it does better than others – it allows you to add custom fields. Others are just password managers. HexaVault is a personal information organizer.
