    good product, but like the others on the market, not enough to make me switch from the industry standard "RoboForm", they were the first on the market and continue to show that competitors have a lot of catching up to do.

    The password management space is getting a little too crowded. I've been using RoboForm since the early 2000s, I always test out the newbie password managers but this one just doesn't cut it for me. Sticking with RoboForm.

    Seems like a nice tool, but I already use Sticky Password manager ( and it works an PC, Android and iOS great. Its autofill feature is mature and they have been working on it for years now. I will wait and see if F-Secure Key will get any better in the future.

    I don't see an HTML option for Last Pass export. What did you use to get HTML?

    Oh, right. This site won't notify you of responses. Never mind.

    Tested this thing -- exported passwords in html format from Lastpass -- then tried to import into F-Secure -- didn't work. Any successful Lastpass users out there?

    Anyone know the pricing plan for sync ability? Sure as heck can't find it on their website anywhere, not a good sign if you ask me. I think LastPass' $12/yr will be hard to beat.

      The price for sync is 14.50€/year. Possible to subscribe shorter terms as well.

    "The service works much like its existing competitors, like Lastpass."

    Not the way it should.
    Lastpass syncs between different (non-mobile) devices for free, but needs subscription (premium) to sync with mobile.
    KEY needs a subscription to sync with other devices.
