KeePass is pretty good for free software. Lastpass is not bad either. So far my favorite is MyLok

Well, it seems I made a really good choice. The latest update of B-Folders auto-fills the username and the password in login pages on my phone, windows 7 machine and MacBook! Moreover, it is a free update. On Android it is a free app anyways. It's getting a really powerful product. Very happy with it so far.

DataVault for Android has just been released with an optional Dropbox sync, which works fine. It's really worth the long wait.

Does it support the de facto standard Counterpane password safe file format?

There are some phony "PasswordSafe" apps out in the wild right now that have hijacked Bruce Schneier's brand, some of which are incompatible. One of the imposter "Password Safe" apps will actually upload your passwords to an untrusted third party, which Schneier advises against in his blog.

Judging from the overview, it appears "Kuffs" is a British company that has jacked Counterpanes brand. The screen snaps shows a credit card record type (which is not a normal pwsafe feature), and it also requires full internet access -- looks like an untrustworthy phony to me.

That's because the android keepass app doesn't support. kdbx just. Kdb
Either use a v1.x pc version or make sure your 2.x can save as. kdb as suggested above

Default My experience

On the PC: Long time KeepassX user; recently switched to LastPass and find it far superior in convenience and sync to KeepassX. Everything's encrypted on the user side and there's no need to keep track of a *.db on dropbox et. al. Plugins available for the dominant browers.

Tried LastPass on the Droid and find it's dedicated browser approach to be clumsy. It also wants to use its own keyboard implementation, which I haven't found to be very efficient.

So, I'm off to explore the droid landscape; I'll try Keepass first and see if I can get the dropbox approach to work.

Smile B-Folders is the best, I think!

Happily lived with DataViz Password Plus for long time during my Parm V and Sony Clie series. Having Android Phone(Galaxy S2 and iPhone), I waited long time Password Plus mobile version to come. Finally, I bought Ascendo DataVault in 2010. It was the best until I have found B-folders. B-folders from JointLogic is much better in syncing with PC and Mac! It is now on sale price $9.98. With a single license, you can use up to 5 devices(Windows PC, Mac, Linux, Android...). Desktop version is excellent to manage! You can also use it as me secret memo/note sync with your PC. To edit note with Desktop version is also easy to use and very nice!!!

I heard DataVault released sync option to Dropbox. I think that it is not very good idea put your sensitive personal data into any kind of web file service. And its price tag is way-high $9.99 just for a license to Android Phone only. You need to buy Windows PC version(or Mac Version) separately by paying additional $9.95. With $9.98, you can buy B-Folders single license to cover up to 5 devices including Windows PC, Mac, Linux and Android phone. Sync each other is fantastic. And you can use it as a secret note wallet also with PC and Mac sync feature.

I still use the original Password Safe on my Desktop. The recommended android alternative is PasswdSafe and it supports the same file format and only requires "Storage" permissions. Wiki link. I prefer an app that will not Sync or store the passwords online. I personally keep this app as an additional backup. I still think applications on Androids and other mobiles are not safe enough for critical transactions online.

Datavault gives you the option to sync to Dropbox or SD card or WebDav server. It can be used as a standalone product.

Thumbs up volcanic password manager

I've just installed "Volcanic Password Manager" and I find it very useful, pwd are divided by type. It can export data in different formats and has a very nice and funny interface. I read it stores data in a safe mode through ARC4

Confused

Ok, I've just read through pages and pages of convo comparing the different password managers - my brain is swimming....

I don't need a form filler or any of that - what I really, really want is a secure password keeper that will automatically sync any changes between my android phone and xoom. I don't need it on my PC or any of that.

I have a really basic keeper now, OI Safe, but it doesn't sync - I have to do all this tedious backup/import business.

Can anyone recommend a simple, basic, secure PW keeper that will automatically sync changes I enter when the program is loaded on both my android phone and xoom?

Thanks!

Default My experience

First, I apologize on my english.
Couple a years ago, on my UIQ device I use Handy Safe Pro and Handy Safe desktop. I think it's a very good password manager. After that UIQ device I installed it on my S60 phone, and finally on my HTC DHD. Everything worked fine, synchronization with PC, many templates etc.
I purchased Samsung SGS II on December last year. Now I have a problem. Synchronization with PC is not working.
You can read this on paragon software support page.

Q: What do I have to do if I cannot synchronize Handy Safe Pro data with the PC?
Answer:
Make sure that you a have memory card installed in your phone.
Connect your phone to your PC via USB cable in USB Storage mode
Launch Handy Safe Desktop Pro and press the Sync button

On my phone I have 8 GB external SD card, and I can dismount external SD card. When I connect my phone with PC I can access to externalSD and my phone memory.
Did anybody try this software and maybe have the similar problem.

Wink password managers

Just bought SplashID for windows 7 and android app. If you have wi-fi and don't want to send your data through the cloud, it works a treat. Downloaded easily, synced first time, no problems. Not free, but a one-off price, so no ties to a company. I can now transfer my data to new computers and phones without ever having to re-type it. It looks good on the phone too. The company also replied to a query within half an hour. I'd give it 5 stars.

Hi, I am a mobile software developer and want to develop my own Password Manager application for Android. I would be glad to hear your suggestions here at the forum.

Basically what I want is:
* Great UI for ICS/Honeycomb
* Seamless sync with clouds

I just started and want to complete the beta in 30 dyas. And as I wrote above, I would love to hear any comments from you.

Genekim - you went from Password Plus to DataVault, then to B-folders. Were you able to import your Password Plus data? How hard was it? What about switching between DataVault and B-folders?

Hi! Try using Clipperz. Clipperz is a free, Web-based, open-source password management service that also lets you download a read-only copy of the application and your password data.

It works with any computer capable of running Firefox, Chrome or any other browser that supports JavaScript -- including my iPad running Safari. It also offers a version of the Clipperz Web site that's optimized for mobile phones and other devices with small screens.

Clipperz stores the offline copy of your password data as an encrypted HTML document. The local copy doesn't update automatically, so if you want to keep your offline copy up-to-date you will need to download a fresh one each time you update your database. It saves to a different date-based filename (e.g., clipperz_20100915.html) each day you use it; I purposefully overwrote the same file name each time so that I could open the file using the same Firefox bookmark.

Once you've set up an account, you can open either the online password vault or the local copy of your data using your user name and master password.

Like RoboForm and LastPass, Clipperz initially encrypts password data locally, on your computer, before uploading it to the cloud. Once you set up an account, you can import data (Clipperz supports five formats, including Excel and CSV) or enter your account credentials manually.

App Protector Pro by Clutch Mobile is the best, been using it for a while now. They update frequently, such as matching the icon in the task bar for ICS which was nice, and other major improvements. Check them out.

Hi all,
I've been using the Craftword android app on my mobile phone - you can buy it on Amazon app store. Love it and I use it everyday. I've also read somewhere that a desktop app will be released soon. Looking forward to that!

Actually B Folders does have a desktop app. There is a charge for it, I forget how much, but not too much.
I have it on 2 phones (free) and 2 computers running Windows7.
I believe it might also run on Linux.

KeePass - no payments for Android, Symbian, iOS, Windows, MacOS, Linux, or many, many other platforms.

Why pay for something that you can get for free (FOSS for the non .NET dependent v1.x, free for the .NET dependent 2.x versions)?

You can already store files in it, and if you stick with the truly FOSS 1.x versions, even on Android you can edit the files. Using a v2.x database, they are read only, given the limitation that the v2.x programs require .NET, but other than that it works brilliantly....

there are many password managers though I would recommend that you should reduce the use of password management softwares, they can end up getting hacked or will crash resulting in a loss of your data.

I beg to differ. With KeePass Pro, for example, I can only add items to the database from the PC. However, it also has a synchronize feature and a plugin for automatic backups of the database. So, I have my main database on my PC, I synchronize to the database stored in my DropBox folder, which is then accessible across all my Android devices, and on the PC I have a backup on my PC as well. That's 2 redundant copies (5 if you include the 3 synchronizations of DropBox to each of my devices).

If any one of them gets corrupted there are 4 other copies waiting to fix it. With Xtralogic's Remote Desktop app, I can log into my PC at any time and grab the original, or else load the app from my desktop and re-sync to the DropBox folder and refresh on my Android devices, and et voila! - back in business.

If you plan carefully then it makes life a lot easier - you can make very large, complex,and virtually unhackable passwords for anywhere and everywhere.

I know other programs also have the ability to sync and make backups, so a database that gets corrupted is not really an issue anymore. And as for hacking, well, KeePass an at least two competitors use AES based security, so it's pretty hard to crack unless you have gobs of time, or a million computer bot net at your disposal....

Am trying out the rather new Password Wallet. Rocking its clean look and customized record types. But what really caught my eye was a feature it called stealth mode that actually hides the app icon when enabled. Who can hack an app that only the user knows of its existence?

splashid. long time user of it.

one of the the password managers that will sync between devices. I find that this is important. I don't want to copy it between devices, i can just hit the sync button.

I have also looked at pwd managers that keep data in the cloud, but not so sure I want that. if you can't get to the cloud, you can't get your pwd...

I cut my teeth with Splash way back when on Palm. Used it on three platforms.

Good people...

Another happy user of Datavault here. I guess it's also a case of using what you're familiar with - I used this on a Blackberry and it was nice to be able to simply sync to the Android client without any conversions or worrying about a fundamental change to look and feel etc.

App wasn't being updated much but that seems to have been addressed now on Android. It's one of those apps I don't talk about much as it just works - does what it says it will do. No drama.

- Fully customizable group tree structure with unlimited nesting
- Fast search through the database
- Expiration date for critical data (passwords and groups)
- Unlimited password databases
- Automatic database lock (by timer)
- Windows Desktop application available.
- Data import from popular password managers through "Password Angel for Windows"

Sorry no links available for me, since its my first post. Google Play id is com.maxidix.pasangel.

You being the developer, going by your user name, wouldn't colour your opinion of course?

In addition to the password managers mentioned so far:
I have just released "Keepass2Android". It is similar to Keepassdroid (UI is even based on it, both are open source), but has additional features like browser integration, QuickUnlock, direct support for FTP/WebDav (as Keepass 2.x has) and of course full compatibility with Keepass 2.x (kdbx) files.

I have recently fallen in love with LastPass. There is an android app, a web interface and a Chromebook extension. Now I can access my passwords regardless of which device I'm on.

I am using free app Sticky Password in my smartphone and it is really great. You can download it here, take a look at google play. What I like about it most is floating window.

Been using Last Pass for over a year now and I never encountered problems with it. Will definitely recommend it.
