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, as well as iOS and Android devices, plus we tell you which work with Linux and other popular web browsers.

Our experts looked at popular 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 good and bad points for each program, and our Recommended list will help you see quickly which models come out on top.

Shopping links on the CHOICE website

CHOICE is an independent, non-profit organisation dedicated to helping consumers. Clicking a link will take you to a retailer's website to shop. While we make money if you buy through some retailer links, this doesn't influence any of our rankings. 100% of the money we make goes straight back into our non profit mission. We're currently testing this service and will consider providing more shopping links in the future. Tell us what you think.
