10 Top Password Managers

Tired of being stuck in password hell? Consider these password managers that balance security with convenience.

LastPass is often the first name mentioned when people discuss password managers. Founded in April 2008, when the major contenders in end-user password management were RoboForm, 1Password and KeePass, LastPass works on virtually every operating system. On the desktop, it installs on the browser as an extension, so you might need to provide explicit permission to let it run.

LastPass automatically fills out forms, allows for import and export, and permits sharing of passwords through the Internet (a better alternative than using plain text email, which is insecure). It also lets you create and keep simple notes, generate complex passwords, and create a USB key using Google Authenticator Support.

The premium version of LastPass costs $12 a year, which buys you mobile support even for WebOS. You also get multi-factor authentication via YubiKey, which you use like a USB thumb drive. LastPass also offers a credit monitoring service that will send email alerts when your credit report is modified.

Finally, LastPass for Android has a custom input method that automatically fills in your username and password when you log into apps such as Facebook.

Price: Free for desktop, $12/year for mobile

sumbled upon...
Using Stumble upon I found this article... right after I found Password Locker @  pwlocker[dot]com

hit the back button to share. Trying it now, seems like it's missing some mobile functionality, but they're updating it all the time. I found their twitter handle @pwlocker and follow it for updates.

Going to give it 10 days or so as the password lists and funcitonality is pretty cool, but may close it out after that if I don't see some improvements with the mobile stuff (works well on smartphones, i'd just like to see some remembering of whom I am - have to repeat logging in over and over - although it's intergrated with Facebook, so i just log in with my FB credentials).

my 2 cents.

re: 10 Top Password Managers
I agree with you @juergenvogel19. Everybody has their own "fav password manager". For me, it will always be Password Depot. It is one of the best password managers out there. It provides best security features at an affordable cost Apart from that, it also provides other options to manage my personal data such as credit card, debit card, TAN lists etc.,. I think this piece of software deserves to be on the best password managers list.

Try "Intuitive Password" online password manager
You may try an alternative online password manager "Intuitive Password". It securely stores your passwords in the cloud, and be able to access/view them on all devices. It's free and you don't need to install any plugin to use it.

re: 10 Top Password Managers
Keyfob is another great password manager that deserves to be on this list. They have apps for Windows desktop and Windows Phone 8. They also have a web app at keyfobapp.com in case you are away from your phone and computer. It's great for storing not only passwords, but any type of sensitive information, including security questions for websites, PIN numbers, etc. There is also a password generator to help you create strong passwords for your accounts. The desktop version does password auto-fill, which is a huge timesaver.

re: 10 Top Password Managers
Password Depot deserves to be on top 10 list of password managers. I have been using it since a very long time now and it works great! I wonder why it was not included in this list. It provides so many features such as Security, Easy to Use, Easy to Understand, Clear Interface, Easy Pasword Generation, Facility to save personal Info, Super customer service, not only does it Import password list from other formats but also imports TAN lists...etc., I can go on and on about this tool because its a fantastic tool providing many features one can imagine. 

I think this link can explain much better about the features I mentioned above --> http://www.password-depot.com/overview.htm
