In this day and age of privacy and security concerns, having strong unique passwords across the different sites and services you use is essential. Remembering them all can be a hassle, if not impossible, so that's why password managers are crucial. I use Enpass and I'm checking out Myki, but depending on your needs, you may find you prefer LastPass or Dashlane among others. We're here to talk about the latter: StackSocial is offering a 50% off discount on a Dashlane premium membership, and you can get another 10% off with a coupon code. Read More
TunnelBear has been a popular VPN service for years, partially thanks to its ease of use, and partially thanks to the adorable bear graphics. Now TunnelBear is working on a password manager, aptly named 'RememBear,' and it's free while in beta. Read More
Whether on desktop or mobile, Chrome always offers to save your logins and passwords so it can easily autofill your details the next time you need to log in. In a way, if you accept that pop-up, Chrome (and thus Google) become your password manager. However, what happens if you want to use another password manager app? Migration can be a bit tough and not-so-straightforward and that's why Chrome is now offering an export function. Read More
LastPass began its winding path to support Android Oreo's autofill API in August, but the day is finally here: The popular password manager has pushed support for Oreo autofill to its stable, non-beta app. Accessibility-based autofill is still available for older apps (and Chrome) that don't yet support the new implementation.

Dashlane is one of several popular password managers that aims to make remembering long passwords a thing of the past. However, Dashlane now says it wants to make passwords themselves a thing of the past, too. The company has announced "Project Mirror," a service that will somehow eliminate your passwords. Dashlane is a little vague on the specifics, but the first piece of the puzzle is launching very soon. Read More
I've sung the praises of my password manager of choice, Enpass, many times before on Android Police. But today I get to tell you all a better piece of news: the Pro lifetime subscription is half off until January 1, 2018, making it only $4.99 instead of $9.99.
If you're wondering what sets Enpass apart for me, which is the most frequent question I get each time I post about it, here's the answer. I personally feel more comfortable storing my data on my cloud storage of choice instead of trusting LastPass or Dashlane or 1Password. I also like that Enpass has a one-time fee for mobile and is free on desktops. Read More
As Microsoft's abandonment of Windows phone continued apace this year, the company moved to release more of its core apps on Android, and that included its Edge browser. It's been pretty successful, with more than one million installs, probably due to the "continuous browsing experience" it offers Windows 10 users. Now, there's even more good news for fans of the app. Read More
When Google released the final version of Android Oreo in late August, one of the most useful new features was the new Autofill API. This is essentially a system-wide solution similar to the way autofill works in Chrome, and that's something that can save us all a lot of time.
Developers need to get their apps ready for the new API, and password manager LastPass was one of the first to come out and say it was in the works. A public beta was opened up, but it seems this maybe wasn't the best testing solution given the beta app has now been given its own listing on the Play Store. Read More
One of the features that I'm most excited about in Android O is the official Autofill API support. Thanks to it, password manager apps wouldn't need to work as overlays or stay as constant notifications and they wouldn't require you use their keyboard or browser to simplify login details input in different apps. Instead, you choose whichever third-party app you use as your Autofill provider and Android will call it up each time it sees a username and password field, allowing for more seamless input.
1Password and LastPass both already showed us how the functionality would work in their apps, and it was only a matter of time until either of them or some other app implemented the feature in a beta run. Read More
One of the many new features in the Android O Developer Preview is the Autofill API, which allows apps to fill in text fields automatically. Many people immediately thought of password managers when the API was announced, and shortly after the Dev Preview went live, 1Password whipped up a demo of using the feature. Read More
