It is a pretty difficult task to come with unique passwords each time and then keeping them safe is another issue if you can’t remember all of them. As we use a large number of apps and services, we have lot many different passwords and thus, managing them is important. KeePass is an excellent alternative to Lastpass that requires premium subscription for syncing it with mobile devices. On the other hand, KeePass is a free open source platform and includes lot of plugins and apps for every platform.

Though there are plenty of options for password manager, KeePass is our favorite one. It is cross-platform compatible and can integrated with the browser to autofill the username and password.

Though there is no official KeePass android app but there are several KeePass-compatible ones. One of them is Keepass2Android.
