Most users have multiple email accounts spread across various places (work, home etc). And it’s obvious that these accounts won’t have the same passwords, which makes it almost impossible to remember them all (assuming they’re not simple). This is where password managers chime in, helping users keep records of all their passwords in one location.
We posted a detailed list of the best password manager apps on Android way back in October 2013, but a lot has changed since then, so we have decided to refresh that list with a bunch of new apps.
Bear in mind that all apps here support SSL and 128-AES encryption, so your passwords and other credentials are absolutely safe with either one. It’s only a matter of personal preference.
1. Roboform: This password manager app has been around for a very long time on desktops, but has since made its way to mobile platforms as well.
The app is accessible through Windows Phones and iPhones too, so you get a wide range of devices to access your passwords from.
To use Roboform on your Android device, you will need to subscribe to its Roboform Everywhere service. This will offer you seamless integration across platforms while offering you high-level encryption for passwords and other crucial data.
6. mSecure: It’s hard to leave out an app like mSecure from the list of best password manager apps. It featured in our 2013 list as well, and has certainly come a long way since then.
The app can generate random passwords all by itself, so you don’t have to worry about inadvertently giving it away. There’s also the ability to back up all your essential data to a microSD card slot, which ensures that your data will always be with you.
If you rely on Dropbox for your content, you will be pleased to know that the app also has an (optional) auto sync feature in place which means you can access your credentials safely from a wide range of devices.
There’s also a very handy security feature in place which wipes all data from the device if a hacker tries to enter a false password. This feature is optional for the users though.
