Hi mattytun :)

There's a few good password managers that exists (both online and offline). Personally, I've been using LastPass for a year and I love it (you need to subscribe to its services to have the iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Blackberry, etc. app however, but the program on your computer is free to use). I just renewed my subscription with them since it expired on the 21th.

There's also 1Password, KeePass, DashLane, RoboForm, Sticky Password, etc. What I suggest you to do is to take a look at all of them, and decide which one you like the most based on their features. If you want to keep your passwords offline and like to tweak your programs a bit, then I suggest you to use KeePass with the Android app and it's various plugins.

Here's a short list of the password managers I listed.

This is what I have used for years and just happened to run across this. The free deal with be active in the next couple of days if you keep checking back. I highly recommend it. It's for a 12 month free license. It has a ton of export options if you decide to change to another manager after the free year. Or spend $30 dollars and get a lifetime license.

I use KeePass because I can keep the database in my dropbox and access it from any device.  Not only is the database itself encrypted but it is also stored in a password protected dropbox and not on any device.

I also recommend Keepass as well, as dual encryption on stored passwords is always a bonus and must in this modern day era.
