Strongbox, Touch ID 

I like this honest message:

"NB: Strongbox uses the Secure Enclave (if available) and Keychain on your device to securely store your Master Password to provide this functionality. You may or may not be comfortable with this depending on your threat model. Please consider all of these factors when making your decisions. If you are facing a state level adversary, this probably isn't an ideal security/convenience trade-off for you."

Easy to spot reasons to be mad when you're always thinking of being mad.
Easy to spot my ass when you're always thinking of my ass.

Cat in bed 

"I have to move slightly, but I don't want my cat to think I'm getting up..."

*turns slightly*

*cat instantly gets up*

"Ok. Ok. Don't move... don't move..."

*cat sits for a bit and lies back down*

"Phew..."
