Forgot Password? Password Manager Help

Forgot Password?

When I return to the library in August, I am anticipating that I will forget several of my go-to passwords for several websites. I have tried several different password storage apps, but I have had trouble deciding on one. Some seem expensive, while for others the commitment seems too great.

Can I really trust the app to keep track of ALL my passwords?

I tried three password storage managers. Here’s the breakdown on each:

Enpass:

  • It’s device agnostic–meaning it can be used on a Mac or iPhone or PC, etc.
  • There’s a free desktop-only version.
  • You must pay to access passwords from any device.

LastPass:

  • It’s device agnostic–meaning it can be used on a Mac or iPhone or PC, etc.
  • There is a free version available.
  • It offers a family connection for multiple users.
  • It’s received lots of great reviews.

1Password:

  • It’s device agnostic–meaning it can be used on a Mac or iPhone or PC, etc.
  • It offers a 30-day trial.
  • It can be used for unlimited devices.
  • It offers a Multiple Users option for an additional cost.
  • It’s received great reviews.

And the winner is…

1Password

Why?

  • The price was great for one user.
  • The 30-day trial allows a user to try it out and test out the features and see what works best.
  • It offers browser extensions to easily input username and password, along with generating new passwords when needed.
  • The support and updates are quick and responsive.
  • It has a great website for additional information.

While keeping my Google Doc or Notes list of all my passwords helps me most of the time, my list of passwords continues to grow. A password manager can help organize and easily locate a much needed password.
