Best password manager of 2024

Update February 2024:

We’ve updated the information in our entries where relevant, to reflect any new changes made to the services in question.

Having strong passwords is more important than ever, but guidelines recommend that not only should they be strong (read: long and random), they should also be unique for every account you use. 

This is clearly a burdensome task, which is why many fall into bad habits, reusing the same weak passwords time and again. This is a major security concern, since cracking passwords is one of the top ways cybercriminals are able to breach individuals and businesses alike on a devastating scale.

Enter password managers, which do all the legwork by creating strong and unique passwords for every account you have, and storing them in a secure digital vault for easy access. Many will also autofill login pages for you too. 

We have extensively tested close to 30 of the most popular offerings out there, and have pinpointed the very best password managers for different use cases. We also have a guide for the best business password manager and the best free password manager too. 

During our reviews, we took into account the key areas that the best password managers should perform well in: ease of use, security, compatibility, device limitations, storage capacity, and - naturally - value for money.
