I have a confession: I always forget all my passwords, and I do not use password management.
This is a personal failure. Apparently, the rest of the digital world has long realized that password administrators are life-changing and security-enhancing.
But now LastPass, a popular manager, has implemented new restrictions at their free level. According to, the LastPass free version will only allow users to view their passwords from any type of device, whether mobile or computer, as of March 16th. On that date, users will have to choose their device category, which they will only be able to switch three times, or upgrade to Premium for $ 3 / month.
Since I actually want to make my life easier and safer (and yours too!): I have gathered the best free and paid alternatives to LastPass.
., free or $ 10 / year for Premium
Nothing makes me trust an app more than a smart name. Just kidding. Bitwarden can be a great name for a password manager, but it also promises the most password support (for free) on any number of devices, including mobile phones and computers via browser extension or desktop app. If you do not have access to your devices, but need your passwords, it also has a web vault that you can access from any network-enabled device.
If you are particularly fond of Bitwarden, you get $ 10 / year Premium features, such as 1 GB of encrypted file storage and advanced two-factor authentication.
2., $ 59.99 – $ 119.99 / year
This is the deal: if I’m going to pay for anything, I’ll have to get all the bells and whistles. And while Dashlane is at first glance more expensive annually than LastPass, the larger price tag includes a very important feature: VPN protection. According to our friends at Dashlane VPN protection is a licensed version of Hotspot Shield, which typically costs $ 95.88 annually, with the added bonus of unlimited devices. And of course, you get the password management system on all of these devices as well.
3., free or $ 4 / month for Premium
Alternatively, I am willing to work harder for free stuff. WWPass PassHub (terrible name) is a cloud-based web app that is super secure, as it relies on an Android or iOS device to act as a password. The password is a QR code that lives on an app, which replaces the master password that most password administrators use and provides greater security.
Here’s the hard work: WWPass PassHub has recently added a Chrome extension so that it can automatically fill in some password forms only on Chrome. In any other browser, it can not capture all your previous usernames and passwords, so you have to manually enter them all yourself, and copy and paste PassHub passwords into your forms.
If you are interested in using your phone as a password, Myki Password Manager and Authenticator use a similar pairing system for app-to-browser extension. But instead of a QR code, enter a six-digit PIN or fingerprint to enter. Make sure the device you use as the password is your primary smartphone, as this is the only device with which all passwords are automatically synchronized. You can have your passwords synced across other devices, but you must unlock Myki on your passkey app each time to gain access.
5., $ 34.99 / year
If you are anyone who wants to pay a little to feel much safer, Keeper promises lots of features at a reasonable price. Keeper comes in a little cheaper than LastPass, and gives you a seamless experience with unlimited devices, automatic password capture, form filling, two-factor authentication, a digital vault for file storage and a robust emergency access system.
