It is true that in the Apple ecosystem we have a native password manager that works quite well. The problem with this is that we cannot export the passwords to another operating system and if we have an Android phone or a Windows PC, we must weigh the absence of these passwords. Therefore it is advisable to have a cross platform password manager to have all the password in different operating systems.
One of the most popular password managers is undoubtedly 1Password. This is a cross platform service that we can Use both on macOS, iOS, iPadOS, Android, Windows ... As in its own name it indicates, it seeks that the user only remembers a single password that is called master password to access the vault where all our passwords are stored.
Thanks to the extension that includes for different browsers, Including Safari, you will be able to refill the login data simply by including the master password. In addition, to have a completely secure password we can also use the extension to create it and using an algorithm we can have an extensive password with letters, numbers and signs that will be impossible for anyone to remember. In this way we can have a completely secure password for each of the services.
In addition to passwords we can also enter other types of data such as credit card data, personal forms, data from our server … 1Password has a 30-day trial period, and if it convinces you, you can access a monthly subscription of a few euros.
If you are looking for a free alternative, you can download Dashlane even if it is necessary to have the service open on different devices you must opt for a premium version. It is important to note that, of course, it is available for a multitude of different devices and operating systems as well as including extensions for a wide variety of web browsers.
As in the previous case, Dashlane stores all passwords in a vault and you simply have to remember the master password to access them. The encryption used in this case is AES-256 So you can be totally calm. He is undoubtedly considered one of the best password managers for our Mac.
LastPass works through an extension in our web browser either Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera … Work in the background storing all the logins that you are doing for the first time and then auto-filling when you return to that website. It also stores our personal data as name or address as well as our credit card data so that the purchasing processes are much easier to carry out.
