I end up having to create multiple passwords with different usernames since the default one that I like to use is taken and so I end up with several passwords/usernames and need a way to keep track of them all. Most of the apps that I found on the app store are paid apps that range from $5-$50. Can anyone recommend one that has worked for them? What do you think about storing information such as passwords and usernames in a phone? It would have to be secure.

Hi. I use onekey. It's a brill little app and syncs to Dropbox so passwords on all my devices are available. Very easy to set up and you can edit settings within a password setup. It's also encrypted 256 bit AES so I think it's pretty secure. Here's the link. I got it when it was free so not sure what is is now though. https://itunes.apple.com/app/onekey-pro-secure-password/id599237591?mt=8 might be worth looking at.

Last I checked, 1Password was $17.99. That is a high price to pay for an app. The most I might pay for an app is $4.99. So I'm interested in free or low cost alternatives.

Sorry about that. 1Password does go on sale from time to time and well worth it. I was lucky enough to get it free several years ago...

I got 1password free like that, too. For some reason that I can't remember, I switched to msecure. I think it might have been because msecure was cross platform sync able. I have it on my idevices, my PC and my work Android phone.

I use msecure and it works well. But I've been thinking of switching to something else.

Has anyone used LastPass? I know it's $12/yr but it always wins the review contests.

I began using RoboForm Everywhere many, many years ago, and have continued to this day. It works on my Win, OSX, and iOS devices and allows simultaneous local and encrypted cloud storage that automatically syncs all devices. It generates passwords and also stores identity information and secure notes. It integrates with all modern browsers. It's not free but I view the yearly cost as as an investment in keeping my identity and login information safe and secure. These days I use 12-15 character random generated passwords for most sites and change them regularly with auto-recording from RoboForm.

I've also tried the others but can't bring myself to switch, I just don't see any advantage.
