The Best Password Manager Software
KeePass – Two editions of KeePass Password Safe await you and they are both free. Version 1.xx is standalone which means no installation is required. Version 2.xx offers more features and requires Microsoft .NET Framework or Mono in Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems. Some of the neat features in the latter version include a shared database (for multi-user) and synchronization. Both edition uses SHA-256 password hash, but version 1 provides Rijndael and Twofish encryptions because version 2 only uses Rijndael. There are unofficial releases of KeePass that will work in many smart phones. It is also available as a browser add-on for Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome where you can use the Ctrl+Alt+A keys as an auto-login feature using any browser.
LastPass – This password manager features the same options as KeePass. It’s free to use, but it costs a dollar a month to enjoy LastPass if you would like the premium edition that works on smart phones such as BlackBerry, iPhone, Windows Mobile, Android, Symbian S60 and Firefox Mobile. LastPass premium does not display advertisements. The program runs in most browsers using its universal installer. Opera and Safari users may also download a separate installer of LastPass, as browser extension. The program runs on Windows, Mac, Linux and mobile phones.
RoboForm – Another good secure password storage software reviewed here is RoboForm. The free edition of RoboForm is quite limited. You got to have Pro edition before you can enjoy a fully-functional password manager application. Some of the limitations in this free edition is only having up to 10 numbers of logins and two identities. RoboForm2Go, RoboForm Online, RoboForm for Android and iPhone, RoboForm for Chrome and Firefox is also available.
