List of Popular Password Managers for Android

Our online lives require that we register on many different websites. Having strong password policy and refraining from using the same password on all websites is the key to security. Password managers are an ideal tool to help us stay safe.

Keepass2Android

Keepass2Android is a popular open-source solution that uses KeePass 2.x database files and is thus compatible across all operating systems. The app integrated well with all commonly used Android browsers and has the so-called QuickUnlock feature that lets you unlock your database once with your full password and then re-open it just by typing a few characters.

You can access your database from the cloud, which is handy for syncing between multiple devices. There is also KeePassDroid that does additional support .kdb and KeePass 1.x but has a very dated user interface and is not nearly as feature-packed as Keepass2Android.

LastPass

LastPass is probably the most popular password manager out there. It works across all platforms and you can download an extension for every major web browser. It is available for free with an option to pay for premium version. Users of the free version can choose between smartphones, tablets, or personal computers. LastPass will then work without any limitations but only on the selected platform.

If you want to, for example, use LastPass on both your computer and your smartphone, you will have to pay for the premium version.

It comes packed with many useful features including private notes, data manager, autofill ability, sharing with friends and family, multifactor authentication, password generator, security audit tools, and others.

You can try the premium version for 14 days for free.

Dashlane

Dashlane is a very popular alternative to LastPass and is by many considered to be superior in many different areas.

It helps you safely store passwords and all your sensitive information and protect them with AES-256 encryption. You can choose whether you want your data to be stored locally or in the cloud.

Dashline premium works in a similar way to what LastPass does. It gives you the ability to sync across all your devices, and access passwords on a website.

Safeincloud

Safeincloud is a good looking password manager that uses Material design interface and packs a lot of features. It differs from LastPass and Dashline with its payment model. There are no subscription or monthly fees. You just purchase the app once and you can enjoy all pro features forever.

It is cross-platform with desktop apps available on both Windows and Mac.

mSecure

mSecure has reached version 4 and its entire UI has been updated and dramatically improved. This password manager requires that you spend some money up front, but this will give you an instant access to all features. And there is absolutely no doubt that mSecure has a lot going for it.

It offers a high level of security with its 256-bit encryption, is very easy to use and navigate, keeps your information in sync on all your devices using Dropbox or Wi-Fi synchronization, and gives you the ability to import data from other password managers or via spreadsheet.
