LastPass has long been the password manager to recommend thanks to its generous free offer that allows you to store as many passwords as you need on as many devices as you own, but that's changing. LogMeIn, the company behind the software, announced in February that it's making the free tier a lot more limited starting today. Free users will only be able to use LastPass either on their computers or their mobile devices (phones, tablets, watches).
Chrome 88 is rolling out today, and with it, Google has announced a small pile of new password-protecting features. In addition to checking your saved passwords to see if any have been breached, Chrome will also now just generally warn you when a password is too weak to be secure. And if you need to change any of your saved passwords, a subtle tweak makes that simpler to do as well.
Enpass has been a popular password manager for years, best known for syncing passwords across devices without storing them in a central server. The service added a subscription option last year to fund continued development, and now the first Premium-exclusive functionality has arrived, much to the chagrin of folks who paid for the Pro app in the past.

But as fail to be basically every year we watch the WWDC keynote, no one on the Android Police was surprised to have one recurring thought: "hey, that feature looks familiar." Apple apparently felt very inspired by Android in the last year, and iOS 14 has a whole bunch of "world-first" innovations to show you that—very coincidentally!—also
Samsung's Internet web browser is one of the company's few apps that people don't even own Samsung phones actively seek out. It's one of the best browsers available on Android — it offered extensive dark mode support long before Chrome, and has a higher degree of customization than most other similar apps. It also has ad-blocking (which is cool and all, but I hope you can toss us a few bucks if you do use that). However, there's one critical feature that is still missing — full support for Android's Autofill API.
There are plenty of ways to manage your passwords — Android Police has our own ways — and one of them is to trust Google Chrome with your precious authentication phrases. The browser recently started tracking data leaks for passwords and now, we're learning about an upcoming feature that will let users choose which passwords to sync to their Google accounts for convenience and which to keep to specific devices for increased security.
