Safe Docs app review: keep your paperwork safe



Safe Docs is the ideal app for keeping a secure digital copy of important documents such as your passport, driver’s license, and financial paperwork on your iPhone and iPad, with everything neatly ordered and passcode protected.

The best vault apps for the iPhone

I really like what the developer has done here; it isn’t always easy to find a document storage app that offers decent security while also being user-friendly. Both benefits are offered here, making this a highly worthwhile download.

Secure Storage for Your Personal Documents

If you’re looking for a utility that will allow secure storage of your personal documents while also making it easy to keep everything in some sort of order then I think you’re going to be very happy with what you find in Safe Docs.

Organizing your papers is very easy thanks to dedicated sections that cover everything from credit cards and contracts to passports, driver’s licenses, and even U.S. military ID cards, plus you can assign icons to your entries to personalize them further.

Scan Documents Within the App or Without

Aside from the obvious passcode protection, I really like the way that Safe Docs will automatically delete all of your data if someone attempts to hack in and inputs the incorrect passcode too many times. This feature is optional of course but I would recommend using it.

What’s more, importing your documents is easily done by either snapping a photo of them from within the app or by importing photos from your device’s Camera Roll.
