Which one do you use?

And of course why (because it's OpenSource, because it's small and with no browser plugins,....)

Oh look, another password manager thread.

But I'll bite. I use 1Password. It's easy to use, integrates well, syncs between devices with no issues and works for more than just passwords.

I find the 1Password Anywhere feature to be extremely useful. I let the thing sync to my FTP server, then push it out to a secure corner of the net. Bam - passwords everywhere!

I use Roboform Everywhere, $20 a year, passwords on all my devices, no other cloud storage needed. Secured by not only the password to the Everywhere account but a master password on the database.

One Password here, installed on my Mac and iPhone/iPad. Works flawlessly.

SplashID.

I've been using it since my Palm Treo days, long before the iPhone even existed.

I like it because it allows me to use it on multiple IOS devices and allows me to sync and backup with its desktop application. Now they have the option to sync via cloud (costs extra subscription fee), but the basic version is good enough for me.

are there not enough "which password manager" threads?

I've used 1Password for years with both IOS and OSx and never a crash or problem. Just wish it was easier to integrate on IOS, but that's Apple's sandboxing.

Yes. There are a few. But all without a poll.

I've used 1Password since I got it for my iMac in 2008 with one of those Mac Bundles. I have no reason to switch to something else--works just the way I want it on my iMac, rMBP and iPhone. Great program. :)

That didn't answer the question. If you got another app free, would you then be saving passwords to 3 apps?
Onesafe is in many ways is as good as 1Password. I got Onesafe here free bt promocode before I dl 1Password via the MAS while it was on sell.

Have been using SplashID for a number of years since I was on a Palm Treo. Kept me going through the PalmOS, Windows Phone and then iOS. Also have it on my Mac.

I use 1Password, it does everything I need it to do.
  • Create complex passwords.
  • Automate logging into sites using those complex passwords.
  • Cross platform support (OSX, Win, iOS)
  • Encrypted library that I can share on iCloud or dropbox
  • Securely stores my serial numbers and other ewallet type stuff.
  • Very good support by the developer.

Password protected Excel spreadsheet. I haven't found an acceptable free password manager. One that is multiplatform, suncable and doesn't use an external server.

I think you'll be out of luck on finding any solution. How do you get the spreadsheet over to your phone and other devices?

1Password. Use it on all my devices because of its syncing capabilities. Works for more than just passwords as well.
