So many password manager options, so how do you choose the best one for your Mac?
We downloaded and installed every password manager we could find on the MacBook. We don’t like using iCloud Keychain because it has limited functionality and lacks many essential features that many other password managers offer, such as multi-device compatibility and instant password changes.
If you want to find a password manager that can store and autofill passwords, is easy to use, and has the highest level of security to protect your data, we’ve got you.
After weeks of extensive testing, we’ve found some high-quality, highly secured, easy-to-use (reasonably priced) password managers to keep your Mac safe.
RoboForm has the best form-filling capabilities among the password managers for Mac. With advanced options for storing your personal information, it also includes location-based identity templates.
We tested these templates on some really complex web forms while using Safari, such as a car insurance comparison website, and they automatically filled in all the information on this site, saving me a lot of time typing this information manually.
The app is an intuitive password manager for Mac and also a user-friendly app. We’re very pleased that 1Password gives you the ability to create multiple password vaults, making it easier for me to separate all the data and quickly find specific logins.
What we like the most is the Families plan with a disposable “sharing” safe. Your family members can store a lot of logins and passwords, so sharing Vault makes it easy for all of us to access the passwords we share, such as Wi-Fi codes, Netflix passwords, and Apple TV+ logins.
LastPass has a free version that includes password sharing, real-time monitoring of credit activity, and unlimited password storage. Most password managers only include advanced features in their premium versions, so LastPass would be perfect if you want a cost-effective, feature-packed password manager.
Keeper’s password manager is easy to use and has some really cool features, like two-factor authentication (2FA) options. For example, you can receive 2FA codes on your smartwatch – great if you want an extra layer of security for your data.
RememBear has a simple, fun and non-technical interface which makes it very easy to use even for novice users. While it doesn’t have extensive add-on features, RememBear does everything we expect from a password manager in 2022.
The main thing we like about the Mac OS RememBear app is its design and simplicity. Because of its ease of use and cute interface decorated with animated bears, you might think this is the best you’ve ever seen!
While iCloud Keychain has a similar set of basic features, we prefer RememBear because it’s cross-platform, simpler, and a lot more fun.
Personally, we would prefer a much more comprehensive password manager. But RememBear made the right decision by focusing on the essential purpose of a password manager and making it easy for beginners to use.
By far our favorite password manager for the Mac platform. Dashlane is not only easy to use and has many features, such as a unified virtual private network (VPN) and dark web monitoring.
VPN is useful in this day and age when anyone can be exposed to cybersecurity risks. Without it, it’s nearly impossible to keep yourself safe on the internet all the time. You can check the VPN encryption feature that makes PIA stand out, one of the best VPN services you can rely on. With encryption, your personal information is always safe. Enjoy safe and smooth internet browsing with a VPN.
Sticky Password allows users to sync data only over trusted networks. You can set Sticky Password to sync passwords across all devices only over a trusted Wi-Fi connection, such as a password-protected home or work network.
This means that data can never be accidentally leaked when connected to the Internet. You can use the cloud sync option to sync your data between locations.
NordPass is simple in design but highly focused on security. Most password managers use advanced encryption to protect data, but NordPass uses arguably the most advanced encryption option — XChaCha20 — typically used by high-tech companies like Google to ensure maximum security.
NordPass isn’t as feature-rich as the other password managers on this list, but it’s one of the best premium password managers on the market. There’s a 7-day premium trial and they also have a 30-day money-back policy – so it’s worth a try if you want a simple, secure password manager for your Mac.
Password Boss allows you to define emergency access for specific logins. For example, we can give our colleagues emergency access to Google account logins for work.
If you ever forget the master password, the app can recover your Google account password, but it won’t be able to access any other data, such as your credit card information or social media accounts.
Enpass stores and encrypts all data locally on the Mac’s hard drive. This is perfect for people who don’t want their sensitive information stored online.
But we also like the ability to back up data to USB storage or connect Enpass to the preferred third-party cloud platforms such as iCloud, Dropbox or Google Drive.
