Hunt for the Best Password Manager: Four Apps to Keep Them Safe

There is no end to amount of accounts you need to create when using various apps and websites. And each one of those accounts has it’s own password. Since you have to remember those passwords, having extremely unique ones made of random numbers, letters, and characters isn’t easy to keep up with. Password manager apps were made to solve that problem. When you download a password keeper app, there’s only one password you need.

A password keeper will hold all of your password within a single app and lock them up. That means you can create passwords with strong security value and store the random code in the app for when you need it. The only password you then have to remember (or write down somewhere safe) is the one for your password manager app. Here’s four apps that provide this service.

1Password (Free)

1Password is one of the most popular free password managers for a good reason. It’s been highlighted in multiple publications, including The New York Times and receives stunning reviews from users. The app uses top encryption and offers Go & Fill for quick username and password entry.

 

OneSafe ($4.99)

Like 1Password, OneSafe uses the top level of encryption available to mobile devices. It was also picked by Apple Editor’s as one of the best new apps across 80 countries. If you want to step your password game up and don’t mind spending a few bucks, OneSafe is a fantastic option. You can save everything from credit cards to bank account details along with your usernames and passwords.

 

LastPass (Free)

LastPass is another top contender to consider. You can run all the basics of the app for free, and if you pay for premium, you can sync your information across all your devices for easy access to your accounts from anywhere. There’s an Apple Watch version of the app too for a quick view of your codes.

 

Dashlane (Free)

Safely store all your passwords as well as your passport and ID information with Dashlane. The app auto-locks after a period of inactivity, so your info is protected even if your device is stolen. Create your own personal key to open the app; even Dashlane doesn’t know it.

 

Overall, most password managers have similar features. If you plan to go premium, that’s an expense to consider when deciding whether to pay up front (such as OneSafe) or pay a subscription (such as Dashlane). And since the included features of password management apps tend to be similar, whichever one is easiest and most efficient for you is a winner.
