In today’s video, I’ll show you my top
ten password managers for computers
It would take a superhuman brain to remember
all the passwords you created for various
online services, social media and game accounts.
If it’s too difficult for you to memorize
even a few, you’d better use a special utility
– password manager – to have everything
done for you.
For starters, it will ask you to generate
a most complicated password for each of the
websites you use regularly, and then will
save it to its memory, in a local or cloud-based
I have selected ten most popular password
managers to help you protect your accounts
from hacking and make your life easier.
Now you won’t have to memorize lots of passwords
– the utility will do it for you.
All you need is to memorize a single password
to access the manager data.
So, let’s begin,
But before we start, let’s consider how
password managers store their data.
As I said before, password information may
be kept either in the cloud-based service
or locally, on your computer.
Each of the methods has its pros and cons,
and it’s up to you to decide which is more
important – convenience or maximum protection
for your data.
Synchronization and storing data in a cloud
service are very convenient as all passwords
are available for all devices where you need
However, if the online storage gets hacked,
your passwords may fall into intruder’s
Storing data locally is safer but less convenient.
As long as a password is saved to your PC,
you can’t fill in password fields automatically
when you use a different device, so you will
have to type the password every time.
With dozens of accounts you may wish to create
for various websites, this method becomes
all the more awkward.
Finally, let’s have a closer look at the
top ten password managers.
In the last position, we have 1Password.
1Password is a popular password manager app.
It works without an Internet connection, but
it can also synchronize data using iCloud

for any websites.

The app is available for Android, iOS, mac,
Windows and Linux.

that supports synchronization with a computer,
and a free version.
We gave position five to Dashlane.
When you start it for the first time, Dashlane
examines the passwords you have created before
and if any of them seems too weak, it suggests
modifying it, or generating and saving the
new, more reliable password instead.

your accounts is hacked, and suggest blocking
such account and changing the password data.
In addition, Dashlane can save receipts for
your online purchases, store your bank data,

SafeInCloud is available free of charge for

Number four on the list is Enpass.
This program features an adjustable password
generator where you can select the encryption
type and number of symbols used.
Also, there’s a special window to add passwords
integrated with Google Chrome.
It’s convenient when you need to create
many strong passwords for a dozen or two of
websites, social media or online services.
Enpass keeps its data in two places: encrypted
in the user’s own cloud storage (Dropbox,
Google Drive, OneDrive etc) and locally, on
the user’s computer or smartphone.
This free-of-charge app is available for Windows,
Mac, IOS and Android.
Now we are in for the top three password managers.

share a password permanently, or just let

have a flash drive in your pocket.
KeePass doesn’t have any integrated synchronization
features, and it can keep its password database
in your own cloud storage or right on the
memory device of your choice, for example,
the flash drive used for portable version.
To ensure maximum protection, it’s recommended
to store the portable app and its database
in an online service.
If you do it, the application can be used
on any computer with no trouble.

for all platforms.
The top password manager in our rating is
This position seems well-deserved with tons
of positive feedback from users, easy and
attractive interface, and a rich variety of
The application has been created by developers
of the well-known AVG antivirus, and in addition
to the typical functionality for similar products,
it can also work with databases of other password
managers and synchronize data by Wi-Fi.
Being able to choose between sync options
(Wi-Fi, cloud storage, or no sync) makes the
app even more attractive for end users.
This program supports all kinds of devices
and 16 types of browsers.
Sticky Password is available both as a commercial

range of features.

because they keep all your passwords in one
place, don’t worry:

strong passwords outweigh the disadvantage
of storing them all in one location.

list of all password managers you can use,
