Password managers are becoming increasingly popular. The ability to keep all your passwords in one place is very appealing. With mobile you can have them with you at all times and the security isn't so bad anymore. There are tons of password managers on PC, Mac, and mobile. Here are the best password managers for Android.

1Password


1Password is one of the most competitive password managers. It has a lot of basic features, including password management (obviously), password generation, cross-platform support with other operating systems, and more. The app also comes with an unlock password and other organizational and security features. 1Password provides a 30-day free trial for setup and demo. You have to subscribe to one of their plans after that.


aWallet

aWallet is one of those password manager apps that has been around for a very long time. It stores passwords, banking information, credit card information and personalized data if you need it. There is also built-in search, custom icons and auto-lock feature and built-in password generator. You can download the app for free and pay for the pro version with one in-app purchase. We love that things don't require a subscription.

Bitwarden

Bitwarden is a new password manager app and a surprisingly good one. The developers seem to take this whole password management business very seriously. The application includes AES-256 bit encryption, data hashing and PBKDF2-SHA-256 (a technology to prevent brute force attacks). The app is also totally free and totally open source. You can also host your own password server if you wish. It even supports Android's Autofill API. It's probably the best password manager app you've probably never heard of before. We can say that and not be accused of sponsorship because it's free so no one gets any money anyway! It's easily among the best free password manager apps.



Dashlane

Dashlane is a popular password manager app. It has a decent number of features, good encryption, and a decent set of free features. The free version includes autofill, security alerts, storage of up to 50 passwords, and single-device usability. There are two premium subscriptions from there. The $4,99 per month option upgrades password storage and device syncing to unlimited, while adding dark web monitoring and shallow VPN. The $9,99 per month tier includes credit monitoring service, identity restoration support, and $XNUMX million identity theft insurance. However, most users benefit perfectly from the free version of the password manager.

Enpass

Enpass is a fairly powerful password manager. It covers the basics and there are even desktop versions available for Mac, PC and Linux. It also has no subscription fees, which is a nice touch. On top of that, the app can backup and restore your information, includes 256-bit AES encryption, cross-platform synchronization, and you can even import from other password managers for easy migration. You can also have it autofill your passwords in Google Chrome if you use that browser. They also have a beta app that is currently testing new features.

Keepass2 Android

Keepass2Android is one of the most basic password manager apps. It has the basics and you'll be able to save passwords and such. However, it lacks the more complex features of many of its competitors. The main claim of the app is that it is completely free and open source. It's based on code from Keepassdroid (which is another great free and open source password manager) and both are compatible with each other.



LastPass

LastPass is a password manager application. It has a ton of features, including auto-filling passwords in apps, sites, and even forms. It's also flashy and a lot of people like flashy these days. It also allows you to store photos and audio notes securely. There are several other more unique or unusual features such as fingerprint scanner support, a password generator, a password checker to let you know if your password is weak and even the ability to grant emergency access to a friend or family member. Subscription tiers are competitively priced, but we wish we had a better deal in the free version.

Password Safe and Manager

Password Safe and Manager is a good middle term for password managers. This one has no internet connection and 256-bit encryption, which should help you feel relatively safe. It also has a design material that looks and acts wonderfully. You can enter your passwords, categorize them for easy navigation, and even generate new passwords on the fly. Moreover, it comes with an automatic backup. There are many more features if you decide to buy the pro version. It's not the most powerful, but it's still pretty good.


RememBear

RememBear is another new password manager created by the developers of TunnelBear VPN. It works like your standard password manager. It saves login information for websites as well as apps. You can even save your credit card information if you really want to. It also has a notepad function and password encryption. The free version of the application allows you to use almost all the features of a single device. The Premium version adds inter-device synchronization, data backups, and priority support. It's still a bit new. However, it already crashes with the best password managers and it will only get better with time. The free version works great too.


Google Smart Lock

Google Smart Lock is an excellent password manager. It works natively on Android, Google Chrome, and Chrome OS. Basically, you log into something and Google asks you if you want it to remember the password. The next time you open this app or site, Google will let you know the details. It supports usernames, passwords, credit card information and more. It's completely free too. Tap the button to learn more about what it is, how to use it, and how to activate it.
