Best Password Managers for iPhones in 2021

Choosing a secure, reliable password manager for your iPhone can be a daunting task. To assist you with this we have put together a list of the best iPhone password managers available in 2021.

A password manager will allow you to save your passwords in an encrypted digital vault, which can be accessed from your iPhone, or any other device for that matter. More than likely, your password manager will feature a password generator that will help you to create strong passwords that are almost impossible for hackers to crack, and most password managers have a form-filling feature so there is no need to manually copy and paste your passwords every time you want to login.

For security, you need to ensure that you have a unique, strong password for every different account. That means you will need to create dozens of complex, difficult-to-remember passwords. A password manager will allow you to store them securely, and you will only ever have to remember one password – the one you need to access your password vault.

The 5 Best iPhone Password Managers

  • Avast Password Manager
  • 1Password
  • Bitwarden
  • Kaspersky Password Manager
  • Dashlane

Avast Password Manager

Avast provides a password manager as part of the Avast Antivirus package. However, the solution is not available as a standalone service.

The Avast password manager can be used on Windows, macOS, Android and iOS smartphones. It features a One Touch Login, which allows you to unlock the app using the fingerprint sensor on your mobile device. All Avast plans feature a password generator and autofill options, but some features are limited to paid plans, including secure password sharing.

1Password

1Password has been available for more than ten years. It uses AES 256-bit encryption, with extra security measures to guarantee that only you have access to your vault and that your passwords are secure and accessible while on the move.

1Password can be used on an unlimited number of devices, with apps and browser extensions available for most platforms. It has a Travel Mode to protect your passwords while traveling – only passwords that are marked “safe for travel” will be stored locally on your device when this setting is active.

1Password comes with a range of different subscription levels. There are packages for individuals, families, and businesses, with costs ranging from $2.99 to $7.99 monthly. It also features 1 GB of document storage, unlimited password storage, and 24/7/365 email support.

Bitwarden

Launched in 2016, Bitwarden is an open source password manager available for Android and iOS mobile apps and Windows, macOS, and Linux systems and works with all the major web browsers.

Due to the fact it is open source, Bitwarden code is available to review on GitHub. Tech-savvy users can self-host it on their own server instead of the cloud if they prefer, and the solution has command-line tools to run scripts on vaults. There is a free plan with unlimited devices and password storage and a very reasonably priced premium plan for just $10 annually for personal use. The premium plan features two-step login, vault health reports, and priority customer support. All paid plans come with 1 GB of safe storage.

Kaspersky Password Manager

Kaspersky’s suite of free and premium online security tools are very reliable, with the only difference between them being the free version has a limit of 15 passwords and documents that can be stored.

Along with a password generator, Kaspersky Password Manager comes with several additional features, including the option to be made aware if you have used the same password twice, or if your passwords are too weak.

In contracts to several other password managers for iPhones, the free version of this password manager is extremely limited. However, the product is competitively priced and will only cost personal users $14.99 per year for unlimited password storage and syncing across all devices.

Dashlane

A user-friendly password manager, Dashlane claims to make your online life easier thanks to auto-filling passwords, usernames, addresses, and more.

Dashlane’s free plan does have a limit of 50 passwords and 1 device, so the premium plans will need to be purchased by most users. The Premium plan costs $4.99/month and has no limits of passwords and devices. It also comes with a VPN, which is an added security bonus. One step up from package is the Dashlane Premium Plus plan, which has all the aforementioned features as well as credit monitoring and identity theft insurance, albeit at an increased cost. There are also business and family plans to choose from.
