These days we all have multiple accounts and those accounts have multiple passwords. It can get a bit hectic to remember them all but thankfully there are some great Android password vaults to help us out. I have around 47 different accounts on various services, 12 of them are just for gaming alone. So, you can bet I’ll not be able to remember the passwords. Even if I try to keep the passwords same, some sites don’t allow a certain style of passwords so I have to modify it a bit.
We have all been there, we know the exact password but we cannot log in because there is some weird special character off. Then we reset the password and by the time we need it again, it’s all forgotten. Thankfully, we have Android password vaults that are basically apps that safe keep our passwords behind a master password. This way all you need to do is remember one password and you’ll have access all your account passwords. There is no need to remember each and every password for sites you love to visit. I started using an Android password saving app a few years back and it has served me really well.
Note: the 5 great Android password walls were tested on a number of different devices including Samsung Galaxy Note 3, LG G4 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Over the past 3 years I have used 4 of these 5 apps for a few months but ended up selecting the first app on this list as my daily password protector. All of the apps worked perfectly fine and no problems were faced during testing or routine usage.
LastPass Password Manager
If you’re in the market for a singular app that you can get right now and skip the rest of the list, and I highly recommend LastPass Password Manager. I’ve been using it for around a year now and it has worked perfectly to date. This Android password vault has a clean and easy to understand interface, makes the process of entering passwords quite easy and encrypts anything you store right on your device. What this means is no matter how hard someone can try, they won’t be able to break the encrypted master password in any timely fashion. I also really like how the app can help you article personal info for all the online accounts automatically. The app can also aid you in auto filling passwords to the regular sites you log into, however this feature works well with Google Chrome and Opera browsers.
Dashlane free Android password secures passwords so that you no longer have to remember each and every one of them. The best feature of this app is how easily it allows you to store passwords simply by tapping on the add icon on the bottom right corner of the screen. Another good one is its ability to generate strong passwords. I also really like the ability to share passwords securely without any worry. All you need is one master password to remember and you’ll be able to access all your personal information with ease. And the great feature is the password history search; it allows you to go through each password you ever made. It can come in handy when you didn’t remember updating the password to a certain site.
This app is one of the simplest ones I have seen while testing Android password vault apps. The interface is straightforward and easy to understand and the app has a really small footprint as well. One great thing I like in this app are the categories, you can easily see computer logins, credit cards, E banking, email accounts and web accounts simply by tapping the category button. You can also choose the favored category to be displayed right on the main screen. That’s not all, you can also make your own categories with the category editor option. This makes it a lot easier to manage all your passwords and most of the time you won’t even have to use the search button.
This is the only app I haven’t tested extensively in daily usage but I’m a big fan of Avast – the developers. They made some of the best security apps around and this one is not an exception. We’ve already included their antivirus app in the best antivirus apps for Android list and I was really intrigued by what their password vault will have to offer. The interface is streamlined and easy to handle, you can save a password in a few steps and the app is nonintrusive. You can unlock all with just one main password so you only have to remember a single password. There is also a “create password” feature that allows you to make up really strong passwords for all your logins.
PassKeeper is a simple material design app that aims to save all your passwords for you. When you want to save a password all you need to do is press the plus button on the bottom right corner of the screen. And that’s all you need to do in order to save all the passwords. The app uses AES 256 bit encryption so all your passwords will be safe. One good thing I like about the app is that you can set up the auto lock timer on it. The import and export feature allows you to take an encoded database of passwords anywhere you want, this feature also supports Google drive so you can make a backup of your passwords and uploaded to your personal drive. The notes feature allows you to create private notes for passwords, this can come in handy in a number of scenarios.
These were a few rock-solid Android password vaults that are available for free Google Play Store. I highly recommend that you check out the first and second apps first because personally I find both of them really well built.
