5 Password Managers to Keep All Your Secrets Safe

3. Dashlane

  • Price: Free for one device or $39.95 per year to sync across all devices
  • Supported operating systems: Windows, Apple
  • Supported browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer
  • Supported mobile devices: Apple, Android, Nook

Dashlane is another password manager worth your consideration. The free version lets you have unlimited access on one device while a premium membership syncs your account across multiple devices on supported platforms. If you decide to use Dashlane on one device, you can choose to have all your password data locally encrypted on your device rather than sent to a server. As a bonus, you get a digital wallet with both the free and premium versions, and premium users get a secure account back-up and priority tech support. Dashlane will also evaluate the security of your passwords, generate them as needed and auto-fill forms.

4. Keeper

  • Price: Free for one device, but backup service cost $9.95 per year for a single device or $29.99 per year for unlimited devices
  • Supported operating systems: Windows, Apple, Linux, Unix
  • Supported browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer
  • Supported mobile devices: Apple, Android, Windows, BlackBerry

If you have an AT&T Android or Windows phone, you probably already have Keeper pre-loaded on your device. You can also download a web app to use on your desktop or laptop. It offers password storage and cloud backup and will evaluate password strength or generate strong passwords as needed. However, you’ll need to use it on an Android device or web browser if you want to use the FastFill feature to fill and save log-in information. You can use Keeper for free on a single device, but if you want cloud storage of passwords and other data, you’ll need to pay.

5. PasswordBox

  • Price: Currently offering free premium access to new and existing customers
  • Supported operating systems: Windows, Apple
  • Supported browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer and Opera
  • Supported mobile devices: Apple, Android, Kindle

The final password manager to make our list is PasswordBox. The company has been around for about a year and a half and was recently acquired by Intel Security. To mark the occasion, in December 2014, PasswordBox began giving new and existing customers six months of free premium access. There’s no word as to how much it will cost after that, but it looks like the previous price was $11.99 per account. PasswordBox offers the ability to save passwords, automatically complete login forms and sync across multiple devices. You also get a digital wallet to save payment details. However, the most innovative feature offered by PasswordBox is its Legacy Locker, which passes on account information to your heirs when the time comes.
