Best apps for storing and protecting passwords

1Password, LastPass, and more

1Password is the best-known password manager app, but it’s expensive. A simple Android version is available for free, but the iOS version costs $18. For that, the app acts as a secure holding place for passwords and similar data, like credit card and bank account numbers. When you want to shop or bank online, use the app’s Web browser, and it’ll plug in the numbers for you.

LastPass will hold the same data for free, but charges $12 a year for services approaching those provided by 1Password.

Keeper is a popular choice that’s free in both Android and iOS versions, and allows you to share the filed information with someone you trust.

OneSafe “has cuter graphics than its rivals” and has one nice extra feature: It will alert you if someone tries to access your data. ($2 for Android; $6 for iOS)
