Please add an option to create sublabels / subcategories.
Jan Kroone commented
I think the idea (mentioned below) of deriving label hierarchy from label names present (like "financial/bank") is much more desirable. This then combined with the ability of multi label filtering (also mentioned elswhere) will give everybody the most.

The big thing I'm missing with this great Programm ...
It beats me!... How can this be more simple than subcategory?... But different people want different things how about giving us a option to activate it in settings?

Gmail is using Labels and offers Sub-Labels so where is the Problem?
Nested tags = hierarchical labels
Gmail has implemented this in a very simple way for a long time.
In Gmail, “Financial” might be a tag (a tag is the same thing as a label. Gmail calls tags “labels”. I prefer the terminology “tags”.)
“Financial/Banks” is simply a different tag. The / character is fundamentally no different than any other character.
A few other tags for this example: “Financial/Investment”, “Financial/Credit Unions”, “Financial/Investment/Brokers”, “Financial/Investment/Trading Services”, “Financial/Tax/Tax Preparation”, “Financial/Tax/Accountants”.
In SOME situations, these tags are DISPLAYED hierarchically thus:
In particular, along the left side where the tags are all displayed, they are displayed in this nested format. THIS IS ONLY A DISPLAY FORMAT. The actual names of the individual tags are “Financial”, “Financial/Banks”, etc…. Gmail simply recognizes the / element of the tag FOR DISPLAY PURPOSES.
I think this is the right compromise between simplicity and flexibility.
SafeInCloud could implement this without too much additional work. It would ONLY affect how the tags are DISPLAYED under the hamburger menu in the left-hand pane. In all other situations where a passcard's tags are displayed, they would continue to be displayed just as they are now; i.e., the full text of each tag is shown.
For example, the “Bank of America” passcard would probably be tagged by the User with the following two tags: “Financial”, “Financial/Banks”. That's how they'd be displayed on the “Bank of America” passcard, full-text.
Tags would also be displayed alphabetically and full-text (i.e., NOT hierarchically) in the drop-down menu from which the user checkboxes the tags he wishes to apply.
I like this compromise because it doesn't introduce any new notions of folders or categories or the like. Everything is left up to the User. If the User wants to see her tags displayed in a nested list, then she has simply to name them in a nested fashion, with /'s. Users who don't use a hierarchical naming scheme for their tags would see nothing new.

Adding another vote for "nested labels" or "folder" or whatever you want to call them. As it stands with the import from SafeWallet I have multiple identical labels as they were nested within other parent labels in SafeWallet.

I agree with the wish for "sub-labels". It is true that a deep structure of categories and sub-categories is confusing, but a few levels is very handy. I have data for several companies and organizations and personal. I am used to make divisions for every company and then per division the same structure.
So I vote "Yai" for sub-labels.

Please reconsider this decision. It's a poor design. it's horrible to manage passwords from a huge long list. You are about to get a lot of customers from Safe wallet as everyone is recommending it. The first thing they won't like is folders/labels. People have to be able to organize these. i shall keep looking at you competitors sadly. and yes i have purchased this.

Sorry to say, but one of your biggest competitors has created a folder/subfolder system for cards witch results in a clean and tidy navigation pane.
It seems that using hierarchical structures has got less popular today, but some things in life do work exactly that way. You're right, folders are not labels. But both systems can live together, they do not replace each other.
only just came here today, and this was my 1st impression. good product but needs subcategores. The interface is way too busy. Seen post below, yes I mean sub folders. I hate the layout as it stands, i have lots of passwords and the interface is just crowded. Looks terrible
Labels are not folders. There cannot be sub-labels. As far as I understand you are asking for a folder tree structure.
There was a principal decision made during the app initial design: not to use folders, because they complicate information organization and browsing (especially on mobile).
I do understand that the folder structure is very useful for a large number of cards. That was a choice between simplicity and complexity. The simplicity won.
