This sudden influx of newbies promoting it certainly makes me wonder...
I'd been wondering the same thing.

Looks like a comparable product to LastPass.

+1 for keepass... it is open source, free, multiplatform... keep my file in a dropbox folder and I can access it from any of my PCs, my iPhone or Android Tablet...

Thumbs up

Totally adore 1Password. Don't know how I lived without it. I use it across all of my Mac devices and it hasn't failed me yet. I use Dropbox also to sync/store.

Secondary: Using double authentication with all Google services.

I'm pretty locked down...

I've used a few, but I really prefer LastPass.

Revisiting this topic, as my requirements are slightly different than OP:

  • An iPhone app that stores data locally (i.e. on my iPhone) with remote backup. There are times when I need access to my passwords but I can't (e.g. on a plane) or don't (e.g. Starbucks) want to sync over a network.
  • A program that I can access from both my iPhone and from my browser, e.g. evernote. Has to be usable in Explorer and Chrome or Safari or Firefox.
  • Preferable if it comes with fields for different types of data, i.e. website usernames/passwords, banks, FF #s, etc.


Based on my research (reviews), I've narrowed the choice to:
  • 1Password ($65 for both Mac and iphone/pad)
  • Datavault ($10 all access)
  • mSecure ($30 all access)

Any thoughts?

BONUS: Are there any password managers that will autofill iphone apps? I guess that is too much to ask as it would require the App, i.e. Chase Bank to interact with the password program, which they understandably would decline. I am not talking about website autofill which many browsers can do.

LastPass does everything you ask, except the bonus. I just go into the LastPass app, copy my password, and paste it into the app.

1password recently updated but users need to pay so haven't tried it. But I use it seamlessly with my browsers on MacBook and imac

For my iPad n iPhone, used mSecure, just easier to access.

If I had to pick one, it would be 1Password

I am pulling the trigger on 1password as both the Mac and App version are 50% off during macworld.

What's wrong with keeping everything in a small Excel file and cutting and pasting as needed? I realise this would be a pain on a phone/pad, but for desktop use it seems sufficient.

If you're 100% sure of the security of your computer (both physical access to it and software/network-wise), there's nothing wrong with it. If you're even a tiny bit less than 100%, I'd at least password-protect the excel document, and really, the simpler programs are just a better grade of encryption around the excel (and often a fairly good password generator built in.)

Or writing all your passwords on a 3x5 card and taping it under your keyboard?

Might be difficult to fit 100+ passwords there, and would certainly be impossible to cut&paste them.

+1 for mSecure. I've been using it on all my Macs/devices for years and it's never failed me (yet). Easy to sync and very simple/organized interface.

+1 for 1Password - though it is a bit pricey I use it across all my Windows PC's, Mac and iDevices. I also installed the browser add-on for chrome/firefox which works really well.

I sync it all via dropbox
