Password Manager Editor Editor
Cyber lifesavers when managing accounts and passwords across different platforms!
Password managers are a necessary evil in an age where passwords are everywhere and you can’t remember them all. The one you choose must strike a balance between pricing, features, design, and user interface – and, of course, security.
The use of password managers is growing in popularity. It’s really enticing to be able to keep all of your passwords in one place. You may have them with you at all times with a mobile phone, and the security isn’t half awful. You may also use them to create more complicated and secure passwords without having to remember them all. There are numerous password managers available for PC, Mac, and mobile devices.
If your credentials are compromised as a result of a server breach or an encryption issue, you must update your passwords across the board. These managers are the best of the bunch, each with their own strengths and flavorings in their drive to stand out and provide the safest, most satisfying experience possible.
The best Android password manager apps are listed below. We’d also want to offer a shout-out to a newcomer, NordPass (Google Play link), which we’re still trying out but looks to be working rather well.
One of the more competitive password managers is 1Password. It offers a number of basic functions, including as password management (obviously), password generating, and cross-platform support for different operating systems. Password unlock, as well as other organizing and safety features, are included in the software. For setup and demoing, 1Password offers a 30-day free trial. After that, you must sign up for one of their plans.
aWallet is a password manager application that has been around for a long time. If you need it to, it retains passwords, financial information, credit card information, and custom data. A built-in search, custom icons, and an auto-lock feature are also included. There’s also a password generator built-in so you don’t have to think of one, but that’s a premium option. It appears to cover all of the essentials, including AES and Blowfish encryption, and to execute everything correctly. The software is free to download and you may upgrade to the pro version with a single in-app purchase. We appreciate it when things don’t require a subscription.
Bitwarden is a relatively new password manager that is surprisingly good. The developers appear to take the security of passwords quite seriously. AES-256 bit encryption, salted hashing, and PBKDF2-SHA-256 are all included in the software (a technology that helps prevent brute force attacks).
The program is also completely free and open source, with the option to run your own password server. It also works with Android’s Autofill API. This is, without a doubt, the best password manager app you’ve never heard of. We can say it without being accused of sponsorship because it is free and no one gets paid! It’s without a doubt one of the greatest free password manager apps available.
Dashlane is a well-known password manager application. It includes a good number of features, strong encryption, and a good variety of free options. Auto-fill, security alerts, password storage for up to 50 passwords, and single-device usability are all included in the free version. From there, there are two premium subscription options. The $4.99 per month plan gives you unlimited password storage and device syncing, as well as dark web surveillance and a rudimentary VPN. A credit monitoring service, identity restoration support, and $1 million in identity theft insurance are included in the $9.99 per month tier. That’s actually hardcore. However, most people can get by with the free password manager version if they don’t mind having it on both their computer and their mobile device.
Enpass is a password manager with a lot of features. It covers the fundamentals, and desktop versions for Mac, PC, and Linux are available. It also does not charge a subscription fee, which is a wonderful feature. In addition, the software can backup and restore your data, and it features 256-bit AES encryption, cross-platform syncing, and the ability to import data from other password managers to make transfer easier. If you use Google Chrome, you can also make it auto-fill your passwords in that browser. It’s free to download and use, but you’ll have to pay $9.99 to unlock everything. With Google Play Pass, you may also enjoy this app for free.
Keepass2Android is a simple password manager for Android. It includes the essentials, as well as the ability to backup passwords and other information. However, it lacks many of the more advanced capabilities seen in many of its competitors. The fact that the program is fully free and open source is its biggest selling point. It’s built on the same code as Keepassdroid (another fantastic free, open source password manager), and the two are interoperable. For those on a budget, this is another fantastic free password manager.
Keeper is one of the list’s older password manager programs. Its frequent updates, on the other hand, keep it current. It includes all of the essentials, such as Android’s native auto-fill, a password generator, and a vault for files, images, and videos. Also above average is the desktop version. It’s a capable password manager with a few more specialized capabilities for power users. It is, however, one of the priciest password management apps on the list. If you wish to try the pro version, there is a free version as well as a trial version.
When it comes to password management programs, LastPass is about as mainstream as it gets. It comes with a slew of capabilities, including the ability to auto-fill passwords into apps, websites, and even forms. It’s also flashy and a lot of people appreciate flashy these days. It also allows you to keep photos and audio notes securely. Other unique features include fingerprint scanner support, a password generator, a password auditor that tells you if your password is weak, and the option to allow emergency access to a friend or family member. The free version’s only drawback is that it restricts you to a single platform. If you wish to leave, you may look at our LastPass free vs. premium comparison or look for alternatives here.
When it comes to password managers, Password Safe and Manager is an excellent middle-of-the-road alternative. This one has no Internet connections and 256-bit encryption, so you should feel safe using it. It also has Material Design, which is both beautiful and functional. You may store your passwords here, organize them for quick viewing, and even create new ones on the fly. It also has an auto-backup feature. If you pay $3.99 for the pro edition, you’ll get a lot more features. It’s not the most powerful, but it’s adequate, and if you have Google Play Pass, it’s free. My Passwords by Erkan Molla is another good alternative to Password Safe.
Smart Lock from Google is a surprisingly good password organizer. It’s compatible with Android, Chrome, and Chrome OS. When you log into a website, Google will ask if you want it to remember your password. Google will fill in the details for you the next time you access that app or website. It can store usernames, passwords, credit card information, and other information. It’s also all completely free. To view the passwords saved in your Google account, click the button above.
Although it’s not popular, certain phones (mostly Samsung) include password managers as part of the operating system. These password managers are usually linked to an account, sync between devices, and interact with the device’s security settings. For example, with Samsung Pass, you may use the iris scanner on your Samsung phone to auto-fill apps and websites instead of the normal fingerprint or PIN/pattern unlock methods. It’s only a good idea if you plan to stick with a brand for a long time. Otherwise, one of the nine options listed above is recommended. Still, if you already have a phone with something similar built-in, it might be worth a shot. They are almost always free.
