Best Password Manager and Password Storing Apps

Best Password Manager and Password Storing Apps


The internet has brought forth a ton of convenience. However, with increased convenience comes the possibility of compromising on security. We all have multiple accounts on multiple online services if there is one thing that we can do to massively compromise our online security, it is using the same password for all our logins. Unfortunately, this is what most of us do. However, using unique passwords for every login is also a pain. A solution is to use a password manager that automatically generates passwords for each login you have and also fills them in automatically so that all you need remember is one password for the password manager itself. Here are our picks for the best password managers.

LastPass Password Manager

Data is automatically synchronised with the cloud so that you always have access to your logins irrespective of which device you use. (» iOS / Android)

Dashlane Password Manager

Dashlane Password Manager

by Dashlane

FREE
Dashlane offers a simple and intuitive interface in its password manager that makes it easy for even the most basic users to get it up and running in just a few clicks. The program itself is extremely lightweight, which might not sound like much but is a noteworthy benefit anyway. The ability to share encrypted passwords with emergency contacts is a stand out feature. Its cloud synchronisation feature and two factor authentication make it competitive with the very best options out there. (» iOS / Android)

MiniKeePass

1Password - Password Manager

1Password - Password Manager

by AgileBits Inc.

1Passowrd is a well-built password manager by all accounts but its stand out feature includes a “watchtower” service which is on the lookout for data breaches and major hacks worldwide and informs you so that you can change your passwords if necessary.

Support for Dropbox, iCloud, and a variety of other cloud storage services allow you to synchronise your data between multiple devices. (» iOS / Android)

RoboForm Password Manager

RoboForm Password Manager

by Siber Systems, Inc.

FREE
Roboform is as modern as password managers get under the hood. However, with its delightfully “retro” interface that resembles the web in its early days, the interface is designed to be easy to read by internet savvy users as well as older generations. Its autofill feature is particularly well thought out that automatically fills out forms even on new websites. This is more reliable and customisable then the built in autofill functionality in Google Chrome and that is saying something. (» iOS / Android)

Sticky Password Manager & Safe

Sticky Password Manager & Safe

by Lamantine Software a.s.

FREE
The well thought out interface is the primary USP for Sticky, which makes it extremely easy to manage if you have a number of different passwords to manage. All the features you expect, such as autofill functionality, credit card information, password generator, and synchronisation across multiple platforms, are included. Built in cloud backup protects your data from getting lost or corrupted. Biometric authentication for the master password is also a nice touch. (» iOS / Android)

True Key™ by McAfee

True Key™ by McAfee

by McAfee, LLC.

FREE
True Key is designed from the ground up for use specifically with biometric security. Since most modern phones and tablets come with fingerprint sensors, this is a great deal as it makes logging in to your online services an absolute cinch. Facial recognition is also supported natively. You can also use a more conventional (and more secure, might we add) email and password combination. True Key also features full encryption for all your stored data. This makes the app a pretty robust password manager. (» iOS / Android)

(» iOS / Android)

by LLC

FREE
LogMeOnce synchronises passwords across all platforms, both desktop and mobile.

Password Boss is a pretty great standalone password manger that comes with a built in secure browser that you can use to open websites in high security.
