Password managers keep your collection of usernames, passwords and associated websites in a secure digital vault. We test and review the latest versions to help you find out which password managers:

  • are the easiest to use on desktop and mobile
  • can easily sync passwords across desktop and mobile devices
  • have the best security features.

Our test covers password managers that work with Windows 10 using Chrome, as well as iOS and Android devices, plus we tell you which ones work with Linux and other popular web browsers.

    Password management score

    Expand to view more details.

    How the software rates for password management overall. The desktop platform is used to judge password generators and changing of passwords, as many apps tell you to change passwords via a web browser. Password changes initiated on Android and iOS apps often take you to or tell you to use the main website, therefore we only judge password changes made through Chrome.

    Sync score

    Expand to view more details.

    How well the software syncs passwords across devices. The maximum score for sync is 90%, which is given if the sync is automatic, and the score reduces depending on how many steps are required to enable sync, and how easy those steps are to follow.
