Mustbin Keeps What’s Most Important To You, With You

Sometimes things fall in your lap that you didn’t know you needed, and the Mustbin app is just that. I was asked to review it, but I didn’t know it would save me from myself.

You see, I can’t manage things made of paper. I’m like … I’ll just set this here now and “put it away” later. Riiiiight. It just gets stacked, shuffled and shoved. I’m a paper hoarder cluster schmuck.

Mind you, I CAN find everything, but if something were to happen and I needed to access vital information quickly…. ay caramba!

Mustbin stores life’s most important information at your fingertips.

It looks like this:

Well, your images would be personalized to you of course, but everyone has ‘bins’. That’s where you store your important physical and digital information, the things you want to be able to access quickly.

You can make any type of bin you want, but there are some commonly used bins already pre-built for you to use: Wallet, Photos, Accounts and Passwords, Home, Vehicle, Finance and Investments, Health and Medical, Memberships and Rewards, Receipts and Coupons.

To set up a bin, you can either follow the Guide which takes you step-by-step through the simple process, or you can just hop directly to the Documents you’re looking for.

There’s also an Actions tab with walk-throughs for potential scenarios you may encounter. For instance, if your wallet is lost or stolen, it tells you exactly what to do — from filing a police report to contacting creditors and credit agencies.(Phone numbers included!)

I went to the Vehicle section guide and it prompted me to put my driver’s license in first. I snapped a photo of the front and back with my phone, typed in some personal info and kapow, it was stored! After that, it prompted me for registration, insurance, license plate and vehicle photos. It’s quite comprehensive, but if you think of anything else you want to record, there’s a spot for you to do that also.

One thing to note is that if you want the same document in two different bins, you’ll need to enter the info twice. I suspect they’ll address this issue in future updates though.

Is it safe?

The data is extremely secure with Bincryption(TM) technology with bin-level AES-256 encryption on every file even during syncing to and from the 1GB of free cloud storage that’s included. Mustbin itself can’t even access your data!

Each time you access the app, you’ll need to enter a 4-digit pin as well.

Sharing your info

You can share a bin securely through Mustbin with whomever you want, be it a family member, insurance agent or financial advisor. Maybe you need to share your credit card or social security number with your spouse or maybe you want to share photos with family. You can rest assured you’re sharing securely through Mustbin.

I’ve made a bin for each of my kids so that when they need vital information, I can easily and securely share their bin with them.

Best of all, it’s FREE!

  1. This is really neat! I worry about storing all that important info though.

    • Hey Christina,

      Matt from Mustbin here. Thanks for your comment! Everything on Mustbin – photos, files, and bins – has military-grade encryption on it, so only you and the people you invite to your bins can see your information. We’ve built our technology so that not even we can see what’s in our users’ bins. People need to feel safe and secure with their information and we’re trying to provide a place for them for all of it.

      Hope this helps! Please let me know what you think of the app. I would love to hear your thoughts!

  2. I love this idea, I have things I need to quickly access and I’d still like to protect, what a great idea for that.

  3. I am a paper hoarder and shuffler too. I have been slowly going digital but it’s barely making a dent in my paper piles. :( I’m not sure how this app would help me.

  4. Business cards would be a great bin for me, but no android version yet..

  5. This is exactly what I need. I am constantly losing and forgetting everything. My mom things it is an endless source of amusement. Me, not so much. This would literally save my sanity!

  6. Wow, I can’t believe an app like this is free. This would be great to store all the medical information for the family so I’m not trying to remember everything. I’m getting old, ya know!

    • Hey Crystal,

      Great idea! This is exactly why we built Mustbin. I use it to store all of my daughter’s medical info so that we have it with us all the time. I would love to hear what you think of the app when you get a chance!

  7. I like having my credit cards in one place as long as they are secure. Also nice to have a copy of your driver’s license handy.

    • Hi Colleen,

      You’re totally right. This is one of the reasons why we built Mustbin. I’ve backed up my entire wallet in the app so if I ever forget it at home I have access to all my credit cards, health insurance cards, etc. I know my stuff is safe because we’ve built everything on top of military-grade encryption technology.

      Would love to know what you think of Mustbin!

  8. Sounds like an awesome app and I love the fact that it’s free.

  9. Wow, I need this. Right now all important bits of my life are scattered on random note papers throughout my house.

  10. This sounds like a really helpful app! I was all ready to go download it… blasted iTunes! I’m on Android.
