Private Password Manager makes it ultra-convenient to remember all of your passwords and keep them securely.

You can keep the most secret in the hide list in order to access them with a bit easily. There is also a self-destructive feature to let you easily clean up the entire data when your account is attacked.
#3. SafeInCloud Pro
SafeInCloud Pro is exceptionally user-friendly. To ensure your data has the desired security, the password manager app keeps it in an encrypted database. It also lets you synchronize your data with other devices via a number of cloud services such as Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and more.

The password strength analysis gives you the real idea about how secure your password is.

1Password is arguably the best password manager app. What makes it stand out is the ability to let you manage passwords with more convenience. It allows you to sign into websites and apps a lot easily.
The end-to-end encryption provides more safeguard to your data. All the data you store in this app is shielded by the master password. You can lock the app automatically to offer complete security to your data even if your device is lost. Use tags and favorites to perfectly organize your data.
If you wish to have an excellent password manager, 1Password is a great option to have.
Dashlane excels in managing all your passwords and keeping them completely safe. It makes super easy to log into websites and apps. It lets you keep your important document and security code under lock.

PasswordBox is a free password manager that works as a browser plug-in for Firefox, Chrome, IE and Safari. It syncs with a dedicated app (for iPhones, iPads, and Android) through the cloud and the encryption/decryption happens only on your device. The passwords are stored locally too which makes for a safer ecosystem.
PasswordBox doesn't come with fancy settings or preferences: it's a simple and straight-forward password management app with a focus on keeping things really simple and easy for the user. Thoughtful features like Legacy Locker and Digital Wallet make it even more enticing. PasswordBox is free for 25 passwords, but beyond that, you might want to pick the unlimited subscription (that goes for $12/year).
Notably, KeePass isn't an ultra-popular password manager, but for those who use it, MiniKeePass is an absolute must. KeePass is a Windows/Linux/Mac client for password management. It's an open-source project. But there are no mobile versions built by the same developer.
Many third-party iOS apps are built to support/integrate with KeePass, but MiniKeePass is probably the best of all. MiniKeePass, though old, works like a charm if you use KeePass. It runs in the background to support auto-login-information filling when you are browsing Safari. The password databases can be secured with a PIN. And since the passwords are saved as encrypted KeyPass files, you can even copy-paste them in Dropbox folders to sync. There is no cloud sync, though.
KeePass and MiniKeePass are open-source and free.
At $12/year, LastPass is comparable to PasswordBox, but the former has been in the game for a longer time with a consistent reputation. LastPass is the password manager of choice for several thousand users. Most recently, it was recommended by Kickstarter CEO too after password security breach.
LastPass works on Mac, Linux, Windows as a browser plugin. Once installed, it has some really sophisticated (but simplified) feature that will save your passwords. You have complete control over all the settings and customizations that LastPass is capable of. All of this is free.
To use LastPass for iPhone/iPad (iOS), you need a premium account that comes at $12/yr. With the iPhone app, your passwords will be synced between your devices. One downside is that LastPass doesn't integrate with Mobile Safari, so all your browsing is done from within the app (with its built-in browser). The password data, however, is stored locally (and securely) so that once synced, it is available offline too.
Although old-school, mSecure is one of the best password managers for iPhone. It is not a minimalist app. On the contrary, mSecure comes with a full-fledged list of features that make it (even as a mobile app) enormously powerful. mSecure syncs with iCloud have features like email backup, auto-capture, sync everywhere, etc. It's a cluster of some of the best, refined features that one would want out of a paid password manager.
mSecure's desktop companion (for Mac and Windows) costs $19.95. Unlike LastPass, there are no annual subscriptions. It's a one-time purchase. The iOS app costs $9.99 – pricey but worth every penny.
#10. Secure+ Password Manager
Secure+ keeps your data confidential and makes it ultra-convenient to manage your passwords. It encrypts your entire data with strong AES ecosystem to provide the needed safeguard from hacking. With just a tap, it allows you to backup your important data to Dropbox.
The iTunes file sharing keeps the entire backup process offline. It keeps protection mechanism offline on the device. This password manager app supports some options for hassle-free access.
Password Managers and Security
Every password management service wants to be enormously secure and uncrackable. Using high-end encryption is all part of the process but it doesn't make any particular service totally secure. And when we speak of syncing across devices/platforms, the risks are greater although developers try all they can to secure the passwords.
