    If you're looking for one that covers web browsing I use and recommend lastpass.

    Hi,

    I would recommend two programs, depending on how you would like to use them:

    - If you are a Mac owner and want something that works on all your devices and keeps everything in sync than take a look at '1Password'. It's quite expensive. But these guys are around for some time now and they are known to update their software continously. Also they described the software extensively on their website (how it works internally, what encryption mehtods are used etc.). And I wouldn't trust some obscure software to manage my passwords if I don't know what the software is doing with them.
    Their website: https://agilebits.com/

    - If you would like the 'low budget' version I would take a look at 'KeePass'. There are also Windows and Mac versions around. And the program is open source. Everybody is able to inspect the program code for hidden functions and/or back doors etc. KeePass also syncs between different devices.

    eWallet has worked well for me. Available on iOS, Android, Windows and MacOS and can sync using your local wifi (they have a cloud service but you don't need to use it). Advertises that they use decent encryption for your back end data files. Most importantly, it has been very reliable. I tried another application when iOS apps were just taking off and had a data corruption problem which is the last thing you want.

    Actually, it's been on the Mac for years, and was ported to iOS, Android and Windows. It's not the cheapest, but rock solid. I used it for years back when it was Mac only, and gladly got the iOS version when it was released.

    1Password here. I've used it for many years and never been disappointed. I have it synced to two different computers, two tablets, and my phone.

    Again, 1Password. It is also a handy password generator, of whatever complexity you choose.

    I use a spreadsheet app, with password protection... supports wifi transfers so I can manually move it to other devices for back-up.

    If no one's mentioned it yet I'd go with 1Password. ;) I just have the iphone version and backup regularly to my Dropbox account.
