SplashID bills itself as the best-selling password manager, with more than one million users. Focusing on mobile, SplashID Safe supports virtually all mobile OSes: Blackberry, Android, iOS, Windows Phone, WebOS and PalmOS. It also has a client for Windows and Mac.

SplashID Safe operates differently than the browser-based plugins, requiring no installation at all. Rather, SplashData sends you a $29.95 4-GB key-shaped USB device. Simply plug the key into any computer, enter your password and SplashID Safe will launch your data. The app securely stores your usernames, passwords, account numbers, and any records you need to remember and keep secure.

The desktop and mobile versions of SplashID Safe are sold separately (you don't need to have both), and the two versions sync with each other.

Price: $19.95 for desktop, $9.95 for mobile

Do you have any updates?
I've been looking for password managers for Windows 10 and come across a few including new ones like #1 Password Manager (https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9n0cqdt7zwqv)

Does it look good to you?

Thank you

Thank you
Thank you for suggesting these top 10 password managers, it's always interesting to see what is available on the market and comparing this to what I use. Password management and security is such a complex issue and needs a critical approach. I've been using Nervepoint Access Manager which is brilliant, and recently they launched single sign on via their partner Hypersocket. I have been using this combined, a password reset service with single sign on. Definitely worth a try.

A different approach to a Password Manager
Hi guys, there is a password manager called Ninja Password (ninjapassword.com) that is very different from everything else out there because it actually does not store your passwords anywhere. What it does instead is generate your password on the fly whenever you need it based on an hashing algorithm that takes into account the the websites domain, a personal PIN number and a random user ID that it generates. If you use that same user ID in other devices it will sync your settings and list of websites for you, which in handy these days. The catch is that you cannot choose your own password but stick with the one it generates for you. You can setup the strength of your password (length, use of special chars, etc.), but that's it. Now, the most awesome thing about it is that it has no registration, no e-mails, no names, no addresses, no credit cards, nothing. It is completely private.

Enterprise password manager
All of those are personal password managers, but what if you need to securely share passwords with somebody else?? Within the team?? Try Vaultier.org. It is server based encrypted storage. BTW... there is free community version available.

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.

Re: Password Manager & Safe
Yes, I miss Sticky Password too in this comparison. I use them for many years.

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.
