The mobile phone has become a fundamental part of our day-to-day life and with it we carry out all kinds of actions that, on many occasions, contain sensitive information. Therefore, far from the typical (and not recommended) passwords such as 1234, it is important to create strong passwords and protect each service as much as possible.
The ideal would be to do it with different passwords, but how to remember them all? Social networks, banks, email, banks, subscriptions … every time we use them in more services, which complicates the work a bit. But apps make it a little easier, not just to generate random passwords, but so you don’t have to memorize them.
1Password is probably the password manager par excellence and one of the best known. The only rule is that you only have to memorize a master password since the rest is up to the app. In it you can save all kinds of data such as passwords or credit card number. 1Password generates strong passwords and has a tag system to find anything within the app quickly.
What’s more, integrates with other applications and web browsers, so that if you want to put any key that is already saved, it will be included automatically, without the need to copy and paste manually.
With LastPass you can manage your passwords, as well as save all kinds of data, organize by categories or access from different devices.

It has an integrated search engine and connects with other devices so that the password synchronization is immediate and we can quickly access any place. All data is protected and you can save not only passwords, but also logins or create different profiles for online purchases. The key: you will only have to memorize the password to enter LastPass. In case any site you use has been hacked, the app will notify you immediately and create passwords for you.
With the basic functions in terms of password management, it is true that DashLane dispenses with something in the free version that we have seen so far in other apps: synchronization between devices. However, the possibility of receiving alerts in case any service we use has been hacked.
In addition to saving passwords, it allows you to store other types of data such as addresses or the bank account number. The app has AES-256 encryption, two-factor authentication to increase security and, in case of using public WiFi networks, DashLane allows you to protect privacy thanks to the integrated VPN. It also highlights its digital wallet that allows you to easily buy in any online store even if you do not have an account in it.
Password Safe allows you to safely generate and save all your passwords as it stores and manages all data in an encrypted form based on the 256bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). To use the app, it will be enough for you to remember a single master key and once inside you will be able to categorize each one of them for a much faster access.
Although it does not have synchronization between devices, the app does present a key generator widget with which you can copy passwords on the clipboard to use it wherever you need.
