The 5 best password managers for Android

Our accounts hold invaluable information about us — about our work, our finances, and our social lives.

Password managers take the onus of remembering dozens and dozens of (hopefully) unique strings of characters off our stupid brains, and once you've used one, it's hard to imagine going without. If you're still shopping around for a password manager to call your very own, here are five solid options.

It was more expensive than competing devices, but it was also much better than all of them. The excellent build quality, decent projection brightness, and newer software (based on Android 7.1) made it a great product.
