A lot of the digital information being stolen these days is because of weak passwords, which paved the need for an Android password manager that can generate strong passwords and safeguard those passwords for you. Once you download this app, you would only need to remember one password—which is the code you would have to input to access the app and see all your other passwords.
Here are the top three password manager apps in the Google Play Store:
1. mSecure Password Manager ($9.99)
Created by mSeven Software LLC, this app uses ultra-secure 256-bit blowfish encryption to protect personal information such as login names, account numbers and passwords. It has an auto-lock feature to protect the app from people who are not supposed to see it, as well as a password generator, a cloud data protection, a free backup utility, an auto backup feature and an optional self-destruct feature if a hacker finds his/her way into the app.
With this app, you can also customize accounts, share records and keep history of your previous passwords (remember that you have to generate new ones periodically).
2. aWallet Password Manager (Free)
This is probably the best Android password manager you can download for free. It does not only store your passwords, it can also keep your credit card information secure. It can also save your e-banking credentials, web accounts and other customizable data. The aWallet is also advertisement-free, which means you don’t have to be bothered by the usual ads that pop up on a free app. And when it’s time to copy all of your information, you can safely do so through this app since it creates an encrypted data file that you can store in an SD card or another Android USB device.
Created by Synpet, this app’s pro version can also generate passwords and import documents with CSV extension.
3. Keeper Password Manager (Free)
The Keeper password manager is another free app that you can utilize. It uses military-grade encryption, so you don’t have to worry about your personal information, bank account details and login passwords. As an extra precaution, you can also access your favorite websites within the app since it can store login and password information. You are ensured though that your activities on that certain website will be protected.
It also allows the syncing of devices, which means that you can access the information stored in the app on your mobile phone, tablet and personal computer. Also, its developer Keeper Security Inc. provides 24/7 technical support.
The importance of using different and strong passwords for each of your login accounts cannot be highlighted enough. Hackers have found a way to hack into complicated passwords before. If you don’t make your passwords stronger, you are also vulnerable to such cyber attacks. Keep in mind that the information you input on the Internet can be used against you. Although it is understandably hard to keep track of all your passwords, especially if you create strong alphanumeric ones, you still have to find a way to keep them safe. Thankfully, an Android password manager is created specifically for that role.
