The moment you start using this app, all it asks you is amaster password. tehn you can go on to create different fields pertaining to different account and save your passwords. Unlike most other apps you download, this one does not request for any internet permissions so your passwords are safe inside the locker. The saved passwords are encrypted using strong and standard algorithms. You can backup or export the passwords to an encrypted file whenever you need and take it wherever you want and import to any device with Forget Passwords app.

Last Pass

This app is by far the most exhaustive one. Not only does it offer you a secure vault for all your password or other sensitive information, it also includes features such as automatic password generator which you can use while creating new online account. It also lets you fill in an information which the app will then autofill whenever required.

You can even customise the app to make all your data available on an exclusive offline mode. You get a free 14-day trial pass when you first download the app and then you have the option to go premium for about $12 per year.
