Actually, I have used True Key for over a year now (since 11/2006) and it is NOT dangerous. It manages 180 logins and counting for me. It took me a while to understand how an app with such a simple interface could be secure enough to trust with all my logins. Once you get the feel of the app, you will see too that it IS very safe and secure. I recommend True Key to everyone. For those who won't even give it a try, I assure you the True Key website support section has the precise directions for its removal. They also have a first class support team if you hit a snag. Seriously, give True Key a chance and you'll find you can't live without it.
Yep I use True Key, and it works a treat, also if your with BT broadband its totally free.
I also use True Key free Premium version courtesy of BT Broadband as above. Works pretty well and syncs everything across all your devices, although it seems a bit flaky on Android (hoping an update will address this soon), and some websites do catch it out. But overall I'm pretty happy with it. I also like Dashlane, but ditched it after the premium free trial period ended, as the vanilla version doesn't sync across multiple devices.
I've been using True Key as my password manager for a while. I got grandfathered into True Key when Intel bought it over. It's a good password manager. I haven't had any problems with it so far, and their autofill ability is accurate even for obscure websites. I don't doubt its security because McAfee is behind it after all. However, compared to others on the market now, namely Lastpass and Dashlane, its iOS app is slow, and I believe it's still running on older frameworks. Moreover, the competitors are more active in their development and security.True Key is in some ways the oldest password manager, dating back to before the buy over when it was called Password Box (I believe). But at least in my opinion, I don't think it has that flair that it once had over its competition.
