Al­ter­na­tive man­agers

Windows Help & Advice - - WINDOWS 10 -

We’re go­ing to sug­gest three other com­mer­cial pass­word man­agers – the ones that crop up most of­ten, and gen­er­ally of­fer sim­i­lar fea­tures at sim­i­lar costs. So, it’s down to you which you feel works the best. The first is 1Pass­word. com; prices start at $2.99 per month for a sin­gle user, and $4.99 for a fam­ily ac­count for four peo­ple.

DashLane (www.dashlane.com) is a ma­jor player and of­fers a num­ber of plans that will suit a wide range of con­sumer and busi­ness uses. The ba­sic plan is free for all, but is lim­ited to work­ing on a sin­gle de­vice. The paid home plan is $3.33 a month, and sup­ports un­lim­ited de­vices, pass­word shar­ing, and Yu­bikey 2FA sup­port. A busi­ness plan starts at $4 per user, and in­cludes re­mote man­age­ment, group shar­ing of pass­words, and en­hanced 2FA op­tions, among oth­ers.

Our fi­nal op­tion is Keep­er­se­cu­rity.com. It has a sim­i­lar struc­ture to DashLane, but opts to have yearly sub­scrip­tion pric­ing. The ba­sic sin­gle-user pack­age is $29.99, ef­fec­tively $2.50 per month, and of­fers un­lim­ited de­vices with sync, un­lim­ited pass­word stor­age, se­cure cloud backup, fin­ger­print ac­cess, and web ac­cess with sup­port. A fam­ily op­tion costs $59.99 for five users.

There are, of course, a host more pass­word man­agers. You can find a vaguely in­de­pen­dent list on Wikipedia at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ pass­word_­man­agers, or our sis­ter web­site TechRadar main­tains a list of free(ish) pass­word man­agers at www.techradar. com/1325845.
