    Researchers find multiple security issues with password managers on Android
    It seems a lot of password manager applications available for Android are not as secure as you would think. Researchers have found issues with apps like MyPasswords, LastPass, F-Secure, Dashlane, Avast Passwords and more.

    They should tell us which ones aren't vulnerable.

    That was a pretty interesting read! I didn't read every report, but did study the ones for my password manager of choice as well as a few alternatives.

    I noted that each report concluded with a summary of when the vulnerability was discovered, reported, and ultimately fixed. So it's good to know that these particular cracks have already been filled.

    Kudos to the researchers for keeping these folks honest!

    I can't believe one app stored matter keyword in plaintext. It is ridiculous

    It should be linked from the OP:

    https://team-sik.org/trent_portfolio/password-manager-apps/

    Each individual finding is linked from there as a separate article, so I'm not able to easily copy/paste that content here while on mobile.
