Too many passwords to remember. Time to get password managers!



Writing down these couple of password managers for my own future reference and for anyone looking to manage their many passwords like I do.

Since I've too many passwords to remember, it is time get a password manager to help me out. Below are some of the password managers that I'd reviewed and considering.

Mooltipass


Mooltipass is a hardware device that allows you to access all your credentials using a built-in screen or by connecting the device directly to a computer or smartphone. How Mooltipass device know your passwords? By reading them from a smart card. Yup, your passwords are securely stored on a smart card that needs to be inserted into the Mooltipass device. In turn, the smart card reader is secured with a PIN. All you need to do is remember the PIN and Mooltipass will remember the many passwords that you have.


KeePass

Probably the oldest password managers that I've encountered. KeePass is a password manager for Windows platform and it has been around for more than a decade. What it lacks is integration with mobile devices, operating systems such as MacOSX, Linux, and support for mobile applications. Also, KeePass doesn't back up your passwords to the cloud but save those passwords in a local database. Which you can back it up or move the database around to different computers. If you don't mind these or you use Windows PC desktop frequently then KeePass is the free and open-source option to consider.

LogmeOnce

If you need more features to manage your passwords and looking for a free version, then LogmeOnce is the password manager that you should consider. It has features such as photo login(login with your photo/face), fingerprint access or simple PIN access. On top of that, it has support for two-factor authentication and secure password sharing facility. If you find these features not good enough for you, then upgrade to Pro or Ultimate versions to get better features such as backup, selfie based two-factor authentication, and better customer support service.


LastPass

If you're looking for the best password managers, LastPass, in my opinion, is the best option. Life is already complicated by managing many passwords, no need to get stressed about connectivity to any of your devices, pay a premium rate to access Pro or Ultimate level or dealing with many operating systems. It has simple to use user-interface, a browser extension that makes it super easy to organize the passwords and works just about all the devices regardless of operating systems - at an affordable monthly subscription rate. All you need to remember is the master password that securely lockdown all your passwords that you can use for everything.
