“This week, I took a look at three password-manager apps for consumers: LastPass, by a company of the same name; 1Password , by AgileBits; and RoboForm, by Siber Systems,” Bonnie Cha writes for AllThingsD.
“Each app stores all of your various information in one central place, where it’s protected by a single master passcode. This way, you only have to remember one password, instead of dozens,” Cha writes. “And since the apps automatically fill in the data for you, they also allow you to use more complex, stronger passkeys for everything else.”
Cha writes, “All three apps performed their main duties well. For most users, LastPass is a good option. The free version offers more than enough features, and it’s easy to use. If you’re wary of trusting the cloud, you can always check out 1Password and RoboForm using the free trials before deciding to buy.”
