Question Best password app?!

Hi, I'm looking for a password manager/service that includes:
  • Android app
  • encryption
  • stores credit cards
  • passphrases
  • integration w/Google Chrome

is there anything close to this out there?
thanks

I don't know if this covers all your needs but I like Lasspass for my Android phone and my PC.

I have looked into LastPass, it does look pretty good. I wish I could find out whether it remembers passphrases and/or credit cards.

For example, I use DuckDuckGo for my web searching. DDG requires a passphrase to pick up your custom search settings, it's pretty cool. I would need a password manager that could remember the passphrase.

Although I've read many great things about LastPass, I'm a little concerned that it might be on the very top of a hackers list of things-to-do. I would imagine it's kind of a big target

KeePass is pretty good and it's free. There's a free desktop version too. You can use dropbox, box.com, google drive, etc... to store your password file on so your phone and desktop always stay in sync.

Lasspass can generate random passwords or you can roll your own password or passphrase. It also will store credit card info and personal information like addresses, etc.

LassPass or LastPass? I'm confused.. is that misspelled or a nickname for LastPass!?

Something I've actually looked into is mSecure. I just emailed these guys and their support answered promptly and gave thorough answers to my questions. For a 10$ app, I am hoping to get what I plan on paying for.

Has anyone tried a paid password service? I would like to hear some opinions on these. There's gotta be something about the paid apps that make them worthwhile.

I use B-Folders. Syncs to your desktop PC. I'm very pleased with it.

Only thing is I'm not sure if or how it might integrate with Google Chrome. It has it's own browser built in on android app and desktop app. Desktop app is real useful, and costs $30. Android app is free, but doesn't do you much good without the desktop app. The two synchronize device to PC without using the cloud. I'd highly recommend giving it a look.

LastPass I believe can do all you want it to do. Most importantly they have a 2 week free trial so you can figure out it is a good fit for you.

I don't know where LastPass ranks on the hacker hit list but knowing what is involved in the security I don't really worry about it.

Sorry about the confusion. It's Lastpass. It's a great app which I've been using almost two years now.

Install the mSecure - Password Manager. Its a free password manager app that will store all your passwords and highly confidential information. It has got a cool feature of password generator to create unguessable passwords. You can download it from the play store.

I haven't checked too many, but have settled on KeePass. There is a version for Android, iPad/iPod, and PC. So I share the same KeePass file between my and wife's computers and devices and we have one file for the dozens of passwords, log-in names, and other confidential info. KeePass is setup to store name, password, and any freeform text. I keep the serial numbers for software in there too.

How do you sync that file so that if you change a password and update that information on keepass on your phone, it updates on your wife's phone/laptop as well? We have dropbox installed on everything, so can I save that file to the cloud for seemless updates across all platforms? I know it says that Keepass was dropbox friendly but I never have tried to use that function, nor do I understand how I would go about setting it up in KeePass.

Hi Curious Mew! Try Lookout.Lookout Security & Antivirus (free) blocks malware, spyware and Trojans, with user-schedulable daily or weekly anti-virus scans as well as automatic scanning of new apps and files when they're downloaded. Additional features include the ability to locate a lost or stolen phone on a Google map and activate a loud alarm to help find the device, and the ability to back up and restore the user's contact list. Lookout Premium($29.99/year or $2.99/month) adds phishing protection, privacy protection, remote lock and data wipe functionality, and the ability to back up and restore the user's photos and call history in addition to contacts.

Hi, I am using Galaxy note, i used smart application for locking Gallery and setting ( so no one should un-install and access the gallery data), but the data is easily visible in laptop on connection. Can any one suggest a best application, so my data is firmly secured.

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 bookmarkOnce 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.

May not be the best but something straight forward and simple you might want to check out SecretVaultpro.

I have used keepass. It was free and did a good job. We just recently switched to lastpass. It is mostly free and is slightly easier to use and integrate into your browsers for automatic login. You do have to pay for the android app access though.
