    I use mSecure (it was cheap during one of the Play Store sales), but I also hear good things about Lastpass.

    I have been using Passdroid. I believe it was free. Good and easy back up. Back up to sd card. Used for several years and 3 phones. Imported file from sd card when changed phones.

    I'm using KeePass for PC for more than a decade, keeping it on an USB stick, no need for installing on PC.

    Now I've installed KeePass for Android on my (HTC) phone, copied KeePass' data base file from PC to my phone and hadn't any problems to open the data base and edit it :)

    For back up I sync the data base with my network drive and so I've the current data base available for to open it with KeePass on PC.

    I like to have this option to open/edit a password data base on different systems, IMO better than to be dependent on a single password app with a build-in data base.

    Third for Keepass!
    I keep my datafile in Dropbox and use DropSync to keep it current on my phone and tablet. The combination works flawlessly!

    I love B-Folders. I think it's free for phone use only, but I have the desktop version as well. I like that the search function goes through all the fields including notes.

    KeyPass for me too! Best free PW app by far!

    That is exactly what I do too.
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.android.keepass
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ttxapps.dropsync

    There are even portable editions of KeePass for Windows. You can stick it in your Dropbox once and use it on all your Windows computers without having to install it everywhere.
    Downloads - KeePass
    KeePass Password Safe Portable | PortableApps.com - Portable software for USB, portable and cloud drives

    ...and of course if you're new to Dropbox you'll want to sign up from the link in my sig for bonus free storage. ;)

    Exactly what I do. Zero problems with Keepass so far.
