Firefox Lockwise Review

FirefoX Lockwise ReviewMozilla has always been at the forefront of the safe internet experience. Firefox browser is one of the most popular web browsers in the world, but there are some additional Mozilla solutions which you might not know about. One of them is Firefox Lockwise, the new, cross platform password manager Mozilla developed from the browser’s own password manager. In this review, we’ll compare the app to market leaders like Dashlane, Roboform or LastPass, and see whether Mozilla lives up to its name.

Firefox Lockwise Features

Score: 63/100
Features 63%

We were also impressed with Mozilla’s efforts to make the web a safer ad better place, and it’s certainly commendable that they also came up with a standalone Password Manager app, which can be ‘taken anywhere’. However, regarding platform availability, we have some (mostly understandable) issues. Lockwise is natively integrated into the Firefox browser, and has apps for Android and iOS, You’ll have to use your Firefox account to use it. Also, you have to be logged in to at least 2 devices to make Lockwise active.

The main problem is the lack of standalone apps for Mac and PC, and more importantly, no extension for Chrome, Edge, Opera. While this is truly understandable, this means that users don’t get fully covered by Firefox Lockwise for all their devices and browsers.

The second problem is features:

While Lockwise serves as a good and secure password manager, it lacks extra and useful features other password managers have. For example if you are using the App, and not the firefox browser, form filling function does not exist. There is no secure storage built-in (although Mozilla has a Secure Send product, which is separate), and there is no native security checkup (Another product of Mozilla, separated from Lockwise). Our overall impression is that Lockwise currently is not much more useful as a standalone app then before, where it was integrated solely in the browser.  Other Password Managers (including Dashlane or Roboform) have features like secure storage, breach watch functions, form-filling, built-in VPN) all in their app.

Firefox Lockwise Review - Security

Score: 85/100
Security 85%

Firefox runs on a zero-knowledge model, and your passwords are encrypted withe AES-256-GCM encryption, this is pretty much the industry standard, it also uses PBKDF2 and HKDF with SHA-256 to secure your master password and username. The app and the browser has an integrated password generator, which is not as flexible as other providers similar solutions (e.g. Dashlane), it does the job, and it’s not intrusive. Lockwise does not have a continuous breach monitoring per se, but you can use Firefox Monitor to check whether your accounts are compromised through a data breach.

What is a huge plus with Lockwise is the following: Since it’s an open source software, everyone is free to inspect the code and look for vulnerabilities, and generally these software are considered to be more secure.This is something only very few password managers have (Bitwarden and Keepass).

Overall we would say that the security of Firefox Lockwise is decent.

Firefox Lockwise Review - Price

Score: 100/100
Price 100%

This is a very short section. Firefox Lockwise is free, and it will be free forever. That grants an automatic 100% rating!

Firefox Lockwise Review - Usability

Score: 80/100
Usability 80%

Since Firefox Lockwise is a fairly simple password manager app, the overall usability is decent, however we did experience some responsivity issues with app on Android and iOS as well. The main problem (as stated before), is that Lockwise is a barebone password manager, and password manager only.

Firefox Lockwise Review - Support

Score: 80/100
Usability 80%

Since Firefox Lockwise is a free product, you can’t expect phone or chat support, and email queries take a long time to be responded, however, due to the great Mozilla Community, you can easily use forums to get your answer. Our overall experience is mixed: You can’t expect fully-fledged support, and you won’t get any.

Firefox Lockwise - Final Verdict

Firefox is (by far) not the best password manager in the market. Granted, it is made by Mozilla, and since the product is fairly new in this form, we can expect some further developments, and true, if you are living in the Firefox ecosystem, it might be a good choice for you, but for everyone else, we suggest looking at our top password manager reviews.

Which Advanced Password Manager to use?

If you are looking for the password manager called ‘Advanced Password Manager’, please note that it has been audited by several companies, and classified as a potential unwanted software,  which usually comes bundled with other freeware downloaded. However, if you want to see some actual Advanced Password Managers, we have you covered!

Dashlane - Great Free version, Full of features, and VPN included with premium plans.

Dashlane is Privacy Heaven’s favourite password manager, and for good reason! It is a great password manager, but it has awesome features such as: 

 

Password Changer: It automatically changes your passwords when you request it with several sites and services

Dark Web Monitoring: This is a premium-only feature: What it does is basically constantly searching the web, and alerting you when your passwords or personal information is being used. This is extremely useful to be up-to-date with your personal security

VPN: Premium-only feature: Dashlane gives paying customers a fully-operational VPN, which is not the best VPN we’ve ever tried, but it certainly does the job. A very useful feature if you’re using a lot of unsecured Wi-fi hotspots, or want to hide your activity from your ISP. 

Emergency Contact: You can designate an emergency contact with Dashlane: this person is allowed to access your secrets when something happens to you. 

Automatic form filling: Do you hate filling out Forms? Dashlane can help you with that! No more time wasted.

Interested in checking Dashlane out? Good news is that it has a very decent free plan, so you can try this advanced password manager out and even get a month of premium trial (by the way, the free version will still work after the trial period.

Roboform - Advanced Form filling

Roboform logoRoboform by itself is a very decent password manager, but which makes it stand above the crowd is their super-advanced form-filling capabilities: You can really customize every data field. 

Other than that, there are a few noteworthy features: 

Offline-only storage: Although Roboform is a cloud password manager (like almost all password managers we’ve tested), they have an offline-only option for their desktop and mobile clients. 

Emergency Access feature is very similar to Dashlane’s solution. 

Bookmark management feature: Doing it is easy in a safe environment. 

Roboform is not as aesthetically pleasing as Dashlane, but provides great features for a very reasonable price. Want to give it a spin? Check out Roboform here!

LastPass - Great Features and aesthetically pleasing

LastPass is probably the most known password manager. It had its share of bad PR with its data breach incidents in 2015, but overall, LastPass is a great service with a lot of great features. 

What we particularly liked is the type of notes you can keep: From Drivers Licence to Social Security number, LastPass has several categories, but even if it’s not there, you can make your own customized secure note. 

Other than that, we really liked the following: 

Password Changer: Similar to Dashlane’s solution

The usability and layout of the mobile app: Dashlane is a bit better, but overall, it’s great!

Emergency contact: As described before, you can designate an emergency contant, if you’re not able to reach the service. 

Dark Web monitoring

If you’re interested in LastPass,  give it a try.

Other noteworthy Advanced Password Managers

Keeper for it’s overall very solid features and it’s patented Breachwatch feature

1password for it’s unique security features

NordPass for it’s very intuitive user interface and it’s new features coming out by the day 

Actually every password manager which are on our Best Password Manager roundup is advanced and secure, and all of them provide bulletproof encryption, password generators, password sharing and multiple device sync (at least in the paid tier), which are all necessary to stay in the game in this crowded space, but if you want to hear our opinion…

Overall recommendation for Advanced Password Manager

Based on our extensive research we found Dashlane to be the most advanced password manager (for now) – and that’s mainly because of the security, the added VPN, and the dark web scanning features. Give Dashlane a try to find it out yourself.

Bitwarden VS LastPass

Bitwarden vs Lastpass - The tale of two worlds

Bitwarden and LastPass are both making waves in the Password Manager scene: Bitwarden is a relatively new, Open-source solution with a decent free and paid plan, while LastPass is one of the oldest players in the block with a very feature-rich but simple user interface. Let’s see how they battle it out. On thing to mention here: This article is a summary only, if you want to read the in-depth reviews, please check out our LastPass and Bitwarden reviews, where we talk about all these topics in-depth. If you want to check out which password manager we think is best of the dozens we tested, we suggest reading through this article. Anyway, let’s get it on! 

Round 1 - Availability

Devices and extensions

 

On Mobile, the slight edge goes to LastPass, because it still offers support for Windows phones, otherwise, both apps are available for Android and iOS. 

 

On Desktop: Both Bitwarden and LastPass has dedicated apps for PC and Mac, and a Linux option as well. This is a tie. 

 

Extensions: Bitwarden has a slight edge here, because it supports Brave and Vivaldi browsers as well (LastPass has support for Maxthon) , however, both both password managers have solutions for Chrome, Firefox, Explorer, Microsoft Edge and Opera.

 

Overall rating: this is a Tie between Bitwarden vs. LastPass.

Round 2 - Security

 Bitwarden has an open-source code, which is usually considered more secure than proprietary code (Like LastPass). Both of the apps have zero-knowledge implemented, and have AES-256 encryption, an industry standard. Both of these password managers are considered very secure, but LastPass had a security incident in 2015, so this round goes to BitWarden

Round 3 - Additional features

So far, in this Bitwarden Vs. LastPass fight, this is clearly a tie, however, if we look at additional features, we’ll clearly see that LastPass pulls ahead. Their Form filling and secure notes section is much more customizable and easier to use than Bitwarden’s, and they offer easy password sharing. The big plus in case of both Password Managers is Multi-account sync in the Free Plan. This round goes to LastPass.

Round 4 - Pricing

If we only look at free-tier offers, it’s LastPass which offers more features for no investment, but if we look at the paid plans, Bitwarden offers more budget-friendly deals, if we only look at the dollar value. This round is won by Bitwarden.

Round 5 - General Usability

In the final round, we’ve tested general day-to-day usability of both password managers: We’ve installed Bitwarden and LastPass on all our devices for a week each. Our impression is, that overall LastPass is more likeable on a day-to-day scenario than Bitwarden, maybe because it’s more accurate form-filling capabilities.

Bitwarden Vs. Lastpass - Final Verdict

Although both password managers are great by their own right, we found LastPass a bit superior, mainly on the field of additional features and usability. If you want to read a bit more about each, feel free to check out the following pages:

Bitwarden Review

Bitwarden is getting traction in the Password Manager world, because they are Open Source, and their free product covers a lot of features. We’ll look at this Password Manager to see whether these statements are true, and if so, how do they stack up against Dashlane, Roboform, or LastPass. As usual, we’ll examine this software in 5 areas: Features, Security, Useability, Price and Support. Let’s see how this Bitwarden Review pans out:

Bitwarden's Features

Score: 90/100
Features 90%
Bitwarden Review : Password Generator
Bitwarden’s Password Generator is decent.

Bitwarden in its free plan is not a feature-rich password manager, only with one notable exception: Multi-device sync. This means that you can log in and see and manage your passwords across multiple devices, which is a feature that only LastPass provides in the free plan. Foregoing this, Bitwarden has a password generator, and it can help you keeping some secure notes and identities, unfortunately the password-hygiene related tools are barred behind the paid tier, only Data Breach Report is available for everyone (which is a very useful feature!) Exposed Passwords, Reused Passwords, Weak Passwords, Unsecured Websites reports can be all used in the Premium tier. If we look at this tier, for the price (We’ll get there later) it is a decent offer. 

About platforms: Bitwarden supports Windows, macOS and Linux natively on the desktop, and has dedicated browser addons for Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Microsoft Edge and Opera, along with Vivaldi, Brave and the Tor browser. This is very commendable  On Mobile you can download the app for your iOS or Android device, so there’s nothing to scoff at. 

Bitwarden Review: Security

Score: 90/100
Security 90%
Bitwarden Github Repo
Bitwarden’s Github Repository is free for all to check

There is a huge plus on Bitwarden’s side: It’s an open source software, and it’s public audit by Cure53. You can check out their source code on Github, and even look for possible vulnerabilities there. This all means that the makers of Bitwarden are very confident that their solution is super-secure, and it’s a brave step which not a lot of password manager software providers take.  

Regarding your data: The Vault is secured by the industry standard AES-256bit encryption. Also, BitWarden runs on a zero-knowledge model, this means that you, and only you know the contents of your account. However, if you don’t want to host your passwords in the cloud, Bitwarden has you covered, there is an exhaustive know-how on how to self-host your passwords with Bitwarden, and this is a huge plus, even though it requires technical knowledge to implement. 

Bitwarden Price

Score: 92/100
Price 92%

Bitwarden’s pricing model is very generous, but there is one thing that we didn’t like. Let’s check these out:

The Free Plan is obviously free, and covers all the basic password manager features (Multi-device sync, Unlimited password storage, Password Generator, basic 2-factor authentication). However, if you want to try out the premium features, you have to sign up and pay in advance, there is no trial period. We think that this is something Bitwarden should change in the future, even though their Paid plan is very cheap. 

Personal Paid Plan: for $10 per year, You’ll get a lot of extra features, including the beforementoined Vault Health Reports,  Yubikey, U2F or Duo, 1 GByte of secure storage. What we miss is a password share option, and emergency contact addons. Then again, we can’t really complain because of the price. 

Family plan: for $12 per year, you’ll have premium features (with the exception of advanced 2FA) for 5 users, plus unlimited shared items.This is a very generous price indeed. 

For Businesses there are 2 options available: Teams and Enterprise for $2 and $3 per user per month respectively. What is strange is that premium features are ‘addon’ in case of the teams subscription, and even the prices are not so great, there are several other password managers which have better pricing for businesses. 

 

Usability of Bitwarden

Score: 82/100
Usability 82%

It’s a mixed bag. The initial setup is more cumbersome, especially when compared to the best 3 password managers, and if you have some passwords to import, but when it’s done, Bitwarden works as intended. The password generator is great, there is no great password-changer option, and you can access your notes or identities easily. We would say that it hits the industry standard average, but there are some issues with form-filling (bitwarden calls these identities), it was very inaccurate in a number of times. Credit card filling works great though. 

Support at Bitwarden

Score: 90/100
Support 90%

It’s not ideal, to say the least. There is no chat or phone support, free-tier users can only write emails to Bitwarden, and the response time is not great (2-3 days in our 2 tests). On the bright side, there is a very exhaustive help center available, and there is a forum available, and it has a relatively decent activity as well. Premium VIP support also has it’s lags, but the answers we got our answers in approximately 1 working day.  Overall we would say that Bitwarden support is not on par with the industry leaders. 



Bitwarden Review - Final Verdict

Bitwarden Result: 4.30/5
4.3/5
Features 90%
Security 90%
Price 92%
Usability 82%
Support 76%

We have mixed feelings about Bitwarden. On the plus side, it is great that even the free plan contains multi-device sync, and the security is top notch. On the negatives we can say that support is not the best, and there are some usability-issues, especially regarding imports and form-filling. Bitwarden is also missing some of the cool features other password managers have (like the built-in VPN of Dashlane, or easy password sharing in case of LastPass). We also miss the trial period for the Premium product. Overall, we would say that Bitwarden is a decent password manager, if you’re looking for a free one (although not the best), but we would choose something else if we would like a well-rounded password manager.

LastPass evaluation:

Lastpass already has a great free plan with multi-device sync, but their family plan is unbeatable: Not only it can autofill forms, store credit card or any other details, the user experience is great, and it’s pricing is quite reasonable. While Dashlane has more and better features overall, for Families, LastPass is the best choice.

2nd Place: Roboform​

Roboform evaluation:

Not only Roboform ranks 3rd on our Top Password Manager List, it’s second, when it comes to families! All the features are here which you and your family might need (including Password Sharing, Emergency contacts, Shared folders, etc), and it’s price is still unbeatable. The only reason it finished second is that we liked LastPass’s user interface a bit better.

3rd Place: 1Password

1Password Evaluation

The Developers of 1Password have also been around for a while now, and from a Family perspective, they do not disappoint:Their Password history is vital for any family, their apps are easy to use, and the Watchtower feature alerts all members, if something is wrong with their password. The reason it got the third place is the price, but if you have more than 5 family members, you can easily add extra spots for $1 per user,  so if you have a family of 8, 1Password might be your only choice.

What were we looking at, when selecting the Best Android Password Managers

The Top 3 Password Managers for Android detailed

The Best Overall Password Manager for Android: Dashlane

Pros

Cons

Dashlane evaluation:

If you want to have the best password manager available, it is Dashlane, Hands down. Not only it is available for all important and popular platforms, it has some unique features (Like the Password Changer, so you don’t have to do it manually for all the sites), it is very easy to use, and it’s paid version comes with a built-in VPN. The Security dashboard is also a great feature to have, it scans the dark web for any compromised passwords. If you want to use it for free on your android device, the only limitation is the number of passwords you can store: It caps out at 50. However, we recommend Dashlane for the Android users at the first place for its other qualities.

Number 2 for Password Managers for Android: Roboform

Pros

Cons

Roboform evaluation:

What we really liked about RoboForm (besides the very reasonable price tag) is the emergency access and password sharing function:The first is about sharing your credentials in case of incapacitation, the second is securely sharing an account credential with someone else (e.g. your Netflix account). Form filling and logins on sites are a breeze, and the encryption is very strong, so there is very little reason not to love RoboForm. In fact, their Android app is even a bit better than the desktop version, it looks and feels great.

Number 3 for Android Password Managers: Sticky Password

Works on

Pros

Sticky Password evaluation:

The Developers of Sticky Password come from Czechia, and have been working at places like coveted Antivirus companies like AVG and Eset.
The great thing about Sticky Password (besides the awesome AES-256 encryption, or the easy-to use apps) is that you can sync your devices via Local Wi-fi, so your login credentials will never hop through cloud. The pricing is also very reasonable, but the free version also works – unlimited passwords on one device There is one thing which we are not happy about – Sticky Password is not available for Linux devices, but we guess that is relevant for only a small portion of our readers, and certainly not for Android users.

How to get the best price?

It is very simple – the more you are willing to commit to, the less you pay on a monthly basis. We have the best deals available, and as you can see, in some cases, you could save up to 80% if you subscribe to a 3 year period.Please also beware: Some providers offer Lifetime subscriptions, but be sure that the company is trustworthy and does not disappear in 1 or 2 years.

The Top 3 Password Managers for Windows: Detailed

The Best Overall Password Manager for Windows: Dashlane

Pros

Cons

Dashlane evaluation:

As in many other categories, Dashlane shines here as well – Their Windows client is impeccable, and if you would like to try it out, you can do so with a 30 day premium option for free. The user experience in windows is the best amongst the password managers we have tested, the only thing which could be counted as a con is the price, but with the bundled VPN, we are more than willing to shell out the money for this wonderful product.

Number 2 for Password Managers for Windows: Roboform

Pros

Cons

Roboform evaluation:

Even though Roboform has a better interface on Android devices, we were still blown away by the features it provided us from form-filling and managing identities to manage passwords and any type of secure notes. The windows UI of the native app is a bit out-of-date, but it’s not a big issue, especially if we take into account the very reasonable pricetag, and the abundance of features it provides.

Number 3 for Windows Password Managers: Sticky Password

Works on

Pros

Sticky Password evaluation:

We have realized that the Windows top 3 eerily resembles our Android top 3 Password manager list, but it is what it is, on other platforms there is a larger difference between the providers… Anyway, Sticky Password, made by a Czech Cybersecurity team has a very interesting approach to security (besides the Industry Standard encryption and Zero-Knowledge architecture) which you can read about in our In-Depth Review, and it also shines on Microsoft Windows platform as well, putting it into a solid top 3 position.

Best Password Manager for Business users: Keeper

Works on

Pros

Cons

4.32/5
4.3/5

Keeper Business and Enterprise Evaluation

Keeper really impressed us with their offer for individuals, but when it comes to businesses, it is all that we want from a password manager. For Businesses, you’ll have Encrypted vault for every user,Security audits,Activity reporting,Shared team folders,Team management options, Access from unlimited devices,Policy engine and enforcements,Basic Two-Factor Authentication (SMS, TOTP, smartwatch and FIDO U2F), But for Enterprise users, the amount of features are even larger: Single Sign-On (SAML 2.0) authentication, Automated Team Management, Advanced Two-Factor Authentication (DUO & RSA), Active Directory and LDAP sync, SCIM and Azure AD provisioning, Email auto-provisioning,Command line provisioning, and even Developer APIs for password rotation and backend integration. For these reasons, we think that every business or enterprise would find Keeper a very tempting solution.

2nd Best Password Manager for Business Users: LastPass

Works on

Pros

Cons

4.32/5
4.3/5

LastPass evaluation:

LastPass is a very popular choice for Businesses and Enterprises, and for a good reason: The parent company, LogmeIn is all about b2b services, so knowing what businesses need is natural for this company. The reason LastPass did not finish first on our list is the price: It is significantly more expensive than Keeper,  Especially the Enterprise solution. The Teams Package contains a vault for every user, shared folders, standard security policies, a basic reporting interface. The Enterprise plan (which is recommended for more than 50 users include all this, plus integrated SSO with 1200+ pre-integrated SSO apps, 100+ customizable policies, Flexible integrations, and In-Depth Reporting. Again, these are stellar options, but we would go with Keeper because of the price factor. 

3rd Best Password Manager for Business users: Roboform

Works on

Pros

Cons

4.46/5
4.5/5

Roboform evaluation:

If you want a password manager only, with unbeatable prices, Roboform is your business choice. You can select from several plans (from 1 to 5 year commitments) making this already cheap solution even more viable. Surely, it does not have all the bells and whistles like other password managers (like Keeper or LastPass), but business plans still include Centralized employee onboarding, Policy deployment, Secure group sharing,Role-based access permissions,  Additional 2FA, Active directory integration, Password Audits, Advanced reporting, and dedicated Tech support. What’s not to like about that?

Honorable mentions

Although they didn’t made it into our Top 3, if you want to check out some alternatives, we suggest taking a look at Dashlane or Zoho Vault. These are also great business options, but did not make it to our top 3.

Zoho Vault Review – Catering only to Businesses?

Zoho is a company aiming its services mainly to Businesses, not individuals, and it clearly shows in their Password Manager. In this Zoho Vault Review, we will deep dive into the product to see how it stacks up against the market leaders in this area. 

Zoho Vault 's Features

Score: 82/100
Features 82%

Zoho Vault shines at administering users, and the granularity of control there. The credentials and other data users keep are called secrets. If you are a user of the product, the ownership of the item you added is yours, but the administrator can change roles. 

There is a master role, called the Super Admin, who can get ownership of all secrets of a user very easily (perhaps over a fired employee). Super Admins can also implement policies, e.g you can force the minimum length and composition of passwords, which needs to be followed by everyone in the organization. 

Since it’s a business product, Secret sharing options are much more granular than in case of other password managers: Here you can also modify user permissions (Viewing, Modifying, Managing), not just sharing passwords. 

The browser extension can help auto-login to certain sites (not autofill!), which is a great feature at the first glance, but this could be a security concern.

There is also an integration with Windows Active Directory and Lightweight Directory access protocol, which might be a great feature for some enterprises. 

Zoho Vault’s Password Audit

Of course, password generator is built-in, and you have different options to store your identities, moreover, you can categorize it: data for business, or personal use.

If you’re looking for a feature packed password manager, we suggest Dashlane, Sticky Password or Roboform for consideration as well.

Zoho Vault Security

Score: 87/100
Security 87%

Zoho uses the industry standard AES-256 Encryption, and a Zero-Knowledge model, so Zoho does not know your master password, not even in hashed form. We consider this policy as very secure. 

Moreover, moving on a holistic level, the ability of changing roles in the organization is also a great security measure for businesses, as well as role import. 

Zoho Vault Price

Score: 90/100
Price 90%

There is a Free plan for Zoho, which might be great for an individual user, since it provides unlimited password storage, and there is multi-sync available. 

However, Standard is a very reasonable package, with sharing option, password expiration alerts, integration with Gsuite and Office 365, and so on, all for less then $1 per user per month. 

The Professional Plan offers everything Standard has, plus the ability to create and manage user grous, share chambers, a break glass account for emergency access, the pricing is aligned with other business-oriented Password Managers ($3.6 per user per month). 

The Enterprise plan is the most expensive, and contains everything Professional has, plus the already mentioned Active Directory integration and user provisioning, Single sign-on for cloud apps, Password access control workflow, Integration with OKTA and Onelogin, and helpdesk integration. 

All in all, the free and standard plans are very-well worth considering, if you are an individual user, For a business, everything from Standard is great, depending on the size of the organization.

Usability of Zoho Vault

Score: 68/100
Usability 68%

As an individual user, most of the features of Zoho Vault does not make sense, but for business administrators, it is great. Lot of control over permissions and users, and manages to do this relatively simply. 

As with all Zoho applications, Vault is based in your browser. There’s a browser extension that allows quick access to your vault items, but you’ll need to log in with your Zoho account to open the full user interface.

When you do, Zoho will send you to your dashboard, which is the worst part of the interface. Though you’re already using Vault, it shows you a video on why you should use it, as well as a small summary of how many passwords you have, a link to download mobile apps and a section for tags you’ve set up in your account.                

Adding a login, or other type of data (Secret) works differently in Zoho Vault than other password managers, the vault shows you a list of sites and services, you click on one, and then bring up the necessary fields. 

You can create custom entries, select ‘others’ on the add secret screen. 

You can also create Chambers, aka password groups, which can be shared like a normal entry. 

Tools section allows you to export, download or import secrets, Settings is the place where you can setup sharing, password policies and manage secret types. Admin part gives you the option to set up vault backup, 2FA and user management. 

The interface itself feels a bit outdated at some parts, and certainly not the most easily understandable. Then again, Zoho is aiming mainly for businesses.  If you are looking for the most seamless Password Managers, we suggest taking a look at Dashlane or Remembear.

Support at Zoho

Score: 87/100
Support 87%

We find Zoho Vault’s support better than your average password manager, dedicated FAQ-s, blog, forums, webinars, help documentation, email support, and so on. You can open support tickets, and these are usually answered in a couple of hours. For more complicated issues, all the solutions and documentations are very-well written. 

Zoho Vault - Final Verdict

Zoho Vault Result: 4.14/5
4.1/5
Features 82%
Security 87%
Price 90%
Usability 68%
Support 87%

Zoho could be a great option if you are looking to shop for a business or enterprise solution, and if you don’t mind the weird way it behaves for an individual user, the free plan is also a great option.

Password managers is an encrypted digital vaults which store your login information, and helps you access apps, websites and other services. Moreover, they can help you create strong passwords, which are unique and hard to crack, and sometimes have unique features, like bundled VPN-s. Most of the password managers we reviewed come in free and paid versions. The free versions are only available on one device, but for a reasonable subscription you can sync the service on all of your devices.

The Top 6 Best Password Managers Detailed

The Best Overall Password Manager: Dashlane

Works on

Pros

Cons

4.67/5
4.67/5

Dashlane evaluation:

Dashlane is all our wishes come through: It is available on all the operating systems and browsers we checked (Android, iOS, Windows, OSX, Linux, and Chrome and Firefox browser add-ons!), is super easy to use, the apps are gorgeous, and it is employed with a password generator, or even password changer. The free version lets you store 50 passwords on one device, but if you are willing to pay for the subscription, that goes to unlimited devices, unlimited passwords, and comes with a Deep web scan, which scans the Dark web to see whether your passwords and login credentials are compromised. Moreover, Dashlane premium comes with a free VPN, which lets you browse securely on public wifi Networks (although if you want to unblock Netflix in the US, we certainly recommend a different VPN.

Number 2 for Password Manager: Sticky Password

Works on

Pros

Cons

4.5/5
4.5/5

Sticky Password evaluation:

The Developers of Sticky Password come from Czechia, and have been working at places like coveted Antivirus companies like AVG and Eset.
The great thing about Sticky Password (besides the awesome AES-256 encryption, or the easy-to use apps) is that you can sync your devices via Local Wi-fi, so your login credentials will never hop through cloud. The pricing is also very reasonable. There is one thing which we are not happy about – Sticky Password is not available for Linux devices, but we guess that is relevant for only a small portion of our readers.

Number 3 for Password Managers: Roboform

Works on

Pros

Cons

4.46/5
4.46/5

Roboform evaluation:

What we really liked about RoboForm (besides the very reasonable price tag) is the emergency access and password sharing function:The first is about sharing your credentials in case of incapacitation, the second is securely sharing an account credential with someone else (e.g. your Netflix account). Form filling and logins on sites are a breeze, and the encryption is very strong, so there is very little reason not to love RoboForm.

Number 4 for Password Manager: Password Boss

Works on

Pros

Cons

4.45/5
4.45/5

Password Boss evaluation:

Password boss is like a mixture of Roboform and Dashlane – Allows for dark web scanning, and easy password sharing plus Emergency access, but lacks the VPN which is included with Dashlane premium. However, if you are willing to pay around $3 per month, you’ll get a wonderful, secure and beautiful password manager with great underlying technology.

Number 5 for Password Manager: 1Password

Works on

Pros

Cons

4.36/5
4.36/5

1Password evaluation:

1Password is an old player, specialized for Macs in the beginning, bot now they offer solutions for every device. We really liked the Watchtower feature (which is a Security dashboard), and the Emergency Kit, which is a useful addon for security. 1Password is certainly one of the best (if not the best options for Macs and iOS devices).

Number 6 for Password Manager: Keeper

Works on

Pros

Cons

4.31/5
4.31/5

Keeper evaluation:

Keeper is one of the newer players around, and although they cater for individuals, their business plans are even greater. We also liked their Addon product Keeper Chat, which is similar to telegram and Signal. Keeper is certainly one of our picks if you are looking for a business, or enterprise solution.

How to get the best price?

It is very simple – the more you are willing to commit to, the less you pay on a monthly basis. We have the best deals available, and as you can see, in some cases, you could save up to 80% if you subscribe to a 3 year period.Please also beware: Some providers offer Lifetime subscriptions, but be sure that the company is trustworthy and does not disappear in 1 or 2 years.
