Which password manager is the safest and most trustworthy?

Keepass, Lastpass or RoboForm?

I use free KeePass v1.x and think it's pretty safe...

I prefer PasswordSafe 2.2. It's secure, doesn't store anything online, and highly portable (no dependencies like .NET). I can't speak for the newer versions.

I use free LastPass. The main reason is all the integration with chrome and everything else. Website is nice as well.

It's using 500 iterations of PBKDF2-SHA256(i don't think HMAC) which makes it somewhat secure against cracking. But then again, the iteration count is adjustable and actually getting the database is pretty hard to do(gets deleted every time the browser closes).

So usability is the main reason I use it.

I do use Password Depot since V3. It´s not for free but it´s worth the money in my eyes.

I use pin and paper. I guess if I didn't feel secure about my surroundings or I needed to hide some top secret military plans then that might be different.

I've used Password Agent for years, and it has worked well for me.

I use Lastpass myself but I have extra security enabled in which I have to use a six-digit code generated by Google Authenticator on my Android phone to log into my Lastpass account on unknown computers.

Obviously on my computers I don't need the six-digit code because I trust them but on untrusted computers I have to use Google Authenticator to login.

Re: Which password manager is the safest and most trustworthy?

I use KeePass Password Safe 2.x (moved from 1.x as .NET is installed by default on Win 7 and above anyway). It also has the advantage of being supported on many platforms I used a version on my Symbian phone when I had one and now on Android and in my Linux boot. Few others are supported on as many platforms.

I use Last Pass. What got me using Last Pass was the PSN hack that happened a while back, even though I'm an Xbox Live user.

I like 1Password for both MacOS and Windows. I've gotten great service from it for years.

I find the password manager in my head is currently still safest and most trustworthy to date.

KeePass has never let me down or sold the farm, so I'll continue to use it on multiple devices.

I personally use SplashData's SplashID Safe and for me it is safest and trustworthy because they are the longest-running developer with well established support. They created specialized a variety of confidential data security applications for different purposes, whether for personal, business or even company-level use.

SplashID has problems -- they encrypt EVERYONE'S password with the same fixed master key, so anyone who gets your phone can decrypt your data. Search for the word "SplashID" in this review of iOS Password Mismanagers:

I don't know if the Android and PalmOS versions use the same bad design logic but I expect they do.

Keeping stuff in your head means you're almost certainly reusing passwords, which is far worse than picking a bad password.

I use Lastpass as well for maintaining passwords for all non-financial web sites. All the usual web sites like dslreports, facebook, msn it is good enough for me.

But for banks, brokerages, retail sites, health insurance site, etc. I use an offline tool: Password Corral 4.0.

You must have a great memory. I have over 90 passwords to various sites. All are randomly generated and different from site to site. I am happy to just remember the passwords to the 2 password tools I use.

I like using Post-it v1.0.



I've actually decided to start using KeePass Professional.

For an enterprise environment, I prefer Power LogOn from Access Smart.
