    Starting to get overwhelmed with so many passwords that I think it's time to check out using one of them.

    I use LastPass for everything. Love it. The extension for Chrome desktop and the mobile app are worth it. It costs yearly to use the app on mobile but it's $12 a year which is cheap.

    AWallet. Been using it for years. Free. Safe. They continually support it. Makes it easy for me to categorize my 60+ passwords.

    How about a second vote for lastpass? I love it. Great fort creating passwords as well as storing and recalling them. Also works well for storing other sensitive information.

    Lastpass since they incorporated the fingerprint access years ago. For me there is no way I'll backup all my passwords with another password, don't make any sense to me, so the only logical way to do it was with a fingerprint, once they added that for the Samsung Galaxy phones I tried it and immediately migrated to them. Now it supports Google's and Samsung's API so it's great for both my S7 edge and the HTC 10.

    What if you can no longer fingerprint access your phone? Phone lost, scanner broke etc. Can you retrieve your account with other means?

    With LastPass you can access via the Website. You have a "masterpassword" for your LastPass account. If you lose that you could be in big trouble because they can't help recover that. The good thing is though you can setup backups such as SMS codes to get into your account (or to reset your Master PW) and you can also allow a family member or something to access your accoun via "Emergency Access" (https://helpdesk.lastpass.com/emergency-access/).

    What's the tip over point for those using password managers? ( how many passwords do the typical subscribers have before a password manager becomes attractive? ) I like the idea of this service, but don't see the benefit given the small number of passwords I use.

    Family of four, passwords and information adds up rather quickly.

    Last Pass has folder named Secure Notes.You can keep a photo of something in there, such as a driver's license, insurance card or notes about a specific web site.

    The big advantage is that it allows you to use really complex passwords, that you could never remember, for things like financial accounts and email.

    Once I started using Dashlane, I changed all my passwords. I pretty much have different passwords for each site now. That way if one compromises, I don't have to change the others.

    The benefit is having a different / crazy password for all your accounts (due to a PW generator within the tool). This way you aren't using the same passwords over and over. I have about 25-30 accounts in there right now.

    I'm using Enpass. It has extensions for Chrome and Firefox on desktop (desktop version is free), and the Android license is $10 (one time payment for all Android devices-no annual subscription).

    And even if you refuse to trust it with your Super Important Passwords, such as your Bank Accounts or Primary Email Account, having a password manager removes all temptation to use duplicate passwords on J. Random's Web Forums of Vague and Dubious Security, should you decide you need to sign up. And if J Random's site gets hacked because they stored the passwords in plaintext written on a small dog, you know its password was unique, so you don't have to wonder if you need to change your password for other sites if J. Random eventually gets around to telling you that their dog was stolen.

    I struggled with this a bit and decided that having a complex bank account password stored in a relatively safe place was superior to having a simple one I could remember or a complex one stored in a relatively unsafe place (liked my wallet). I figure: a pin to access my phone (which is stored only in my mind), a different pin to access my password manager on the phone (which again is stored only in my mind), encrypted contents in the password manager, never backing my password manager up to the cloud, my device storage itself encrypted, and Google Device Manager activated so I can hopefully remote-wipe my phone if it's stolen - all brings my risk down to an acceptable level.

    Last pass here. Been using it for the last 2 years and other than one or two issues, absolutely love it. Love it even more so with fingerprint capabilities.
