Best password managers

We’ve found five of the best password managers to help you keep your digital world secure.

Best password managers


KeePass
Passwords in KeePass are stored inside an encrypted database that you control on your own system, and are never synced or uploaded anywhere unless you want to take them from machine to machine. KeePass is also a portable app, meaning it's super easy to take with you and use on multiple computers, even if that machine is locked down and all you have is a thumb drive. It has its own password generator to help you change passwords and make sure each one of them is unique and strong.

Supports: Windows, OS X, Linux, iOS, Android, Windows Phone

Costs: Free open-source software


1Password
1Password is a powerful and secure password manager and digital wallet presented in a smart-looking package that looks great on every platform on which it runs. It's flexible, easy to use and works seamlessly on just about every web browser, and packs in the superior features which you've come to expect from a premium password manager and secure document storage tool.

Supports: Windows, OS X, Android, iOS, Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari

Costs: Download and try for free, or buy a single license for $50


RoboForm
RoboForm has been around since 1999. It is a great tool for auto-filling forms on the web and as a password manager. RoboForm gives you the option to keep your passwords and data encrypted locally, or you can sync to the web and across devices. It supports multiple identities, so you can auto-fill form information depending on user names, email or IP addresses.

Supports: Windows, OS X, Linux, Android, iOS, Windows Phone, Blackberry, SymbianOS, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer, Opera

Costs: Free to download and use for the first 10 logins. Or upgrade to RoboForm Everywhere, which will set you back $20 per year.
