In order to keep your online accounts safe, it is a great idea to use a unique password for each site. However, if you have several different accounts on various sites, it could become quite a chore to remember all the passwords. One way to reduce that stress is to use a password manager. Now, there are several password managers out there. All of them store your passwords quite well. However, the best password managers do more than just that.
Basic password managers save your login information for different sites. They also encrypt all your login information, including your address and credit card information. Many password managers also help you generate unique passwords which are difficult to crack. Also, many good password managers offer password ranking, which tells you which of your passwords are weak and which are strong.
Here are some good password managers you can make use of:
This is one of the best password managers available. It is free for the most part, though there are some features you can only make use of if you pay for the premium version. On Lastpass, once you set up your master password, it allows you to import all of your saved login credentials from Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, Opera and Safari. After that, you can delete all of the information from your computer.
This password manager has similar features to Lastpass and other password managers. What makes it stand out is the streamlined interface. It is simple and intuitive, and it also has two-factor authentication. Also, it allows you to change passwords for multiple sites with just a few clicks.

This is an open-source password manager software, which stores your encrypted data locally. It does not upload your information online. The software is portable enough to load on a thumb drive and transfer to multiple devices. Also, you can share access among several authorized users. Right now, the official version of the software only supports Windows. However, cross-platform users can use KeePass X for Linux and MacOS, and there are several versions for iOS, Android and Windows Phone.
