Before we begin, thank you for all the feedback!

As you can imagine, we have received tons of feedback over the last year. We can't express how incredibly valuable this has been. Thank you!

Based on this we've identified the three major issues Minimalist needs to address in order to become the best password manager for iPhone, iPad, and Mac:

  1. AutoFill support for non-Safari browsers on Mac (Chrome, Firefox, etc.). Learn more.
  2. Sharing of passwords between family and team members via shared vaults. Learn more.
  3. Performance and publication of third party security audits. Learn more.

These will not be easy, and they will take time, but they will be addressed. Thank you very much for your understanding and support! Now on to the road map!

What we're currently working on:

  • Safe for Inspection mode:
    • For situations such as border crossings or entering government agencies, where you may be asked to present your Minimalist data for inspection and only want certain items to be visible.
    • Activated by entering an "alternate" master password.
    • Once activated, Minimalist will only show items marked as "safe for inspection".
    • Deactivated by entering your actual master password which returns Minimalist to normal.
  • Getting featured in the App Store!!!
    • Getting featured ensures we can continue improving Minimalist indefinitely!
    • You can help by leaving a review now!
    • Reviews let the App Store feature team know how much people enjoy using Minimalist.
    • Together we can do it!

What we plan to work on afterwards:

  • AutoFill support for non-Safari browsers on Mac (Chrome, Firefox, etc.). Learn more.
  • Sharing of passwords between family and team members via shared vaults. Learn more.
  • Performance and publication of third party security audits. Learn more.
  • QR code scanning of one-time password secret keys.
  • Compromised Password Reporting via haveibeenpwned.com. Learn more.
  • Menu Bar App on Mac:
    • Access Minimalist from the Mac Menu Bar.
    • Open via global keyboard shortcut.
    • Select and copy fields using only the keyboard.
    • Copy fields into other apps using drag-and-drop.
    • Ability to "pin" window so it stays visible and above other app windows.
    • Learn more.
  • Improved keyboard navigation:
    • Ability to select and copy fields using only the keyboard.
  • Search UI improvements:
    • Selection of categories or tags.
    • Display of items with issues such as invalid secret keys, missing attachments, duplicates, etc.
  • Multiple window support on Mac:
    • Easily compare or copy data between multiple items.
    • Show an item's details in a dedicated window floating above other apps.

What we'll work on eventually:

  • Complete app re-build using SwiftUI with a Mac-first approach.
    • We've actually already spent a great deal of time on this. Sadly we were not yet able to accomplish our goals with SwiftUI. We'll try again later!
  • Icons! Disabled by default, but there if you need them.
  • More alternative app icons.
  • Export to other password manager formats to avoid "lock-in":
    • We hope you'll stay with us, but if you're going to leave anyhow, we'd like to make it as easy as possible.
  • Add "reveal" option while entering Master Password.
  • Markdown formatting in notes.

What we're still contemplating:

  • Apple Watch app. Learn more.
  • Support for hardware security keys such as YubiKey.
  • Consolidation of "Category" and "Tags" into new "Categories" feature offering the best of both worlds. Wish us luck!
  • Addition of Master Password "hint" field.

So what do you think?
