 One aspect to using a password manager on a mobile device is it's heaps easier and faster if you have a fingerprint reader; I didn't until my current phone, and found entering the password each time (even if a number code rather than the full password) was frustrating. Now, just like with internet banking, using the fingerprint for verification, is just so convenient.

 

I've used LastPass Premium for the past few years and find it pretty good on the computer, excellent on Android phones, but incredibly frustrating on the iPad where I have to manually copy passwords all the time when using Chrome- I'd assumed this was a result of deliberate a iOS limitation but perhaps I've never got it fully integrated somehow?

 

(Also, LastPass is the one app that's cr@pped out on both my wife's and my phones after upgrading the firmware - not the app you don't want to be able to access!)

+1 for Keepass. I've used it for several years. I've also put encrypted file on dropbox, so it's always accessible when I have my phone. Android app is great, but don't bother if you use iOS.

 

I love the fact that it's open source and secure and that you are not relying on a third-party server that could get hacked.

Another vote for LastPass. I've been using it for years and it does the job well.

+1 for Keypass - I put my database on my personal ownCloud server so it is accessible anywhere, but is on my personal hardware/storage. Android app is really good as are the Windows clients.

Looks similar to Keypass - but they will charge you $10 for the mobile app (the trial version only allows 20 entries).

That's pretty much what I heard on Tech News Today podcast as well.

LastPass. And make sure you activate 2FA - on LastPass itself and every other site where you can. And use Authy because it syncs 2FA tokens (or LastPass itself). Do not use Google Authenticator because if your phone is gone, it's gone.

I use Dashlane Premium. Works well has good features with browser integration, works with Android and give you a security rating which is quite useful.

 

 

 

Also checks to see if any of your account details have been leaked out where sites have been compromised.

+1 for LastPass.

 

I think storing an encrypted database with Dropbox/OwnCloud/OneDrive is the same as someone running their own mailserver. If you know what you're doing it can be an OK solution but most people have no clue and would be far better off with a mail solution like one Google or Microsoft provide. Not to mention, when you screw it up you do so royally.

 

I'm yet to see a source for any of the user data stored by LastPass being leaked. I think it is pretty brilliant that despite having a target on their backs for years now, no hacker has managed to steal something usable from them.

Me too, RoboForm Everywhere (or is it anywhere?).  Win 7, 8, 10, Android.  Works for me.

I used one called AnyPassword for a while because it would run off a flash drive, so good for clients with a relatively locked down environment.

 

Also used Roboform for a few years and LastPass briefly (until they were hacked some years ago).

 

Current client has KeePass2 as part of the standard build so I use that at work, but at home (and out and about) I use Keeper Security. It has a Chrome and IE extension, a Firefox addon, a Mac/Linux/Windows Desktop app, an Android and OS app and 2FA

I don't really understand the technical side, but to a layman the idea of putting all my login info in one place makes me nervous. Obviously there's a big userbase on here of people who know a lot more than I do, is it not something to be concerned about? What about if I get my wife setup with the same, she's technology resistant, but whenever she gets a new device we have to go through the process of resetting all passwords because she can never remember what they were.
