To best protect your password from loss, forgetfulness, and theft, we recommend using a reputable password manager application such as 1password, LastPass, or Dashlane. Password managers allow you to create unique strong passwords for all of your logins and to save them in a secure, encrypted digital vault. Not only do these applications offer increased security, they also make entering passwords incredibly easy with extensions for browsers like Chrome.

Long gone are the days of having a few easily remembered passwords and using them across all your web accounts. To prevent against hacks, it's imperative these days to use unique, strong, random passwords for each of your accounts. But of course it's impossible to remember all of these, which is where password managers come in handy.

But not only to they save all your passwords securely for easy login, you can also save credit cards, sensitive notes, IDs and more in these encrypted vaults.

While the most secure way to store private keys and passwords will likely always be writing them down in paper form and placing them in a safe or bank deposit box, this is impractical for many people, so we recommend using a reputable password manager to store both your account password and your private key.

The three options mentioned above (1password, LastPass, and Dashlane) all have comparable features. For those who are more price conscious, however, only LastPass offers a free account with basic multi-device functionality (Dashlane also has a free plan but it only works on a single device). For a more full-featured version, 1password starts at $2.99 per month, Dashlane at $3.33 per month, and LastPass at $2 per month. You can compare the features, design layouts, and pricing of each and decide which is best for you.
