The newly revamped Zoho Vault iOS and Android apps are here. In addition to taking the security to the next level, the newer apps are simpler, powerful, and faster. Zoho Vault is the upcoming and most awaited trend in 2020 for mobile app development services.
The latest version of the popular password manager app from Zoho adds a plethora of new features to its already impressive spec list. Let’s check them out one by one:
1. Dark Mode is Now Available
It is very important to adjust a device screen as per the surroundings, i.e., the lighting available. While replacing blue light with amber light is the go-to option; adjusting brightness as per the time of the day is also important.
As such, it has been a popular trend to offer mobile apps, web apps, too, in dark mode to allow users to cut the light while using their devices in low to no light conditions.
The Dark Mode cuts strain from your eyes when working late at night or carrying out some inevitable, last-minute task with the Zoho Vault app right before you go to bed or even during the small hours.
2. Fresh, Simpler, and Powerful UI
The new UI supported by the Zoho Vault apps not only looks fresh but also combines style with efficiency and makes password management even simpler. You can save and share passwords for over 300 popular websites in a flash using the latest Zoho Vault UI.

3. More Languages to Use
Although English is the most widely used language in the world, it is not the preferred language of choice for several users who like to create passwords in their native languages.
Reasons for doing so might vary, but one factor that is common is the ease that enforces this reliance on as well as preference for using non-English languages for passwords. Acknowledging this very fact in the latest revamp, the new Zoho Vault apps now support 6 more languages:
- Portuguese (Brazil)
- Simplified Chinese
If you’ve been shying away from using Zoho Vault mobile apps up until now just only because it wasn’t available in your language, now you might like to start using it. Hopefully, support for more languages might be available in subsequent releases.
