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 the best password manager software for you.

Our test covers password managers that work with Windows 10 using Chrome and Internet Explorer, as well as iOS and Android devices. 

Our experts looked at nine programs to find the ones that:

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

Our interactive comparison tool helps you find which password managers have useful additional features such as a password generator, security warnings, security assessments, two-factor authentication and a portable USB version.

We also give you a handful of good and bad points for each program, and our Recommended list will help you see quickly which models come out on top.

For more information on what to look for, see our Password managers buying guide.
