We think that one of the most important steps you can take at improving your cybersecurity is using a password manager. Today, we’re going to break down some of the best password managers on the market.
Today, I want to give you our top picks for password managers in six categories.
Best overall, for families, for iPhones, Androids, Macs, and Windows.
The first category we’re going to jump into today is the best overall password manager and we’re giving the title to Keeper.
Keeper uses a master password to protect that vault of passwords that you have. You can even throw on multi-factor authentication to give you an extra layer of security. It has a dark Web scan to make sure that your credentials aren’t out there on the murky underbelly of the Internet and a highly-rated mobile application. At $2.50 a month for its most basic plan, it’s pretty affordable, especially considering all that Keeper can do.
In terms of setting it up, it was the easiest process we have for syncing passwords, went into Chrome and with one click we were ready to go.
Speaking of devices, it has unlimited devices and unlimited storage with your Keeper plan.
If you want to fill in new passwords, you can do so with Keeper Fill, which will autofill with new, stronger passwords for your various logins.
When it comes to security, Keeper is equipped with the industry-standard in password cracking and encryption. It even lets you designate up to five emergency contacts, in case you get locked out of your account. Because of
its robust feature set and fantastic value, we designate Keeper as our best overall password manager.
The next category we want to move into is the best password manager for families and here, we’re giving it to Sticky Password.
Sticky Password basically works for families in two ways. It is very affordable over time.
If you decide as to the patriarch, or matriarch or general arch of your family, you want to have the same management system, you should buy the lifetime pass that you get with Sticky Password.
Right now, it costs $149.99, but I’ll be honest with you, they often run deals and then, you can just buy into it for one user and have it for the rest of the time. If you want to share it within that password manager, you can do so. It’s going to be pretty easy because they have a helpful and extensive FAQ on the rights that you can give to various members of your family.
I can go in, I can put in their information, and give them access to Netflix, so Bobby, May, and Sally have access to Netflix. It’s limited rights, so they can all see the password.
I can decide that my significant other needs the ability to have full rights, so they can revoke the password to other people. They can revoke the password even to me.
That’s another element that is illustrated really well by Sticky Password. When it comes to having your family stick together, we’re going to give the best password manager for families to Sticky Password.
The next category we’re going to jump into is a personal favorite. It’s the best password manager for iPhones and here, we’re going with RoboForm.

PM Eastern Standard Time. When it comes to security, it has industry-standard encryption too and multi-factor authentication.
