According to Statista, Android accounted for 70.1% of the world’s mobile operating systems in the fourth quarter of 2023. That’s an overwhelming amount of devices — and in turn, a massive amount of passwords and accounts on each device. While you can still use sticky notes to keep track of passwords, writing them down isn’t a secure way to manage your sensitive credentials.

This is where password managers come in. Password managers encrypt and organize your passwords, allowing you to easily access important logins without sacrificing security.

NordPass is Nord Security’s flavor on password management that brings with it the same focus on security and useability as their popular NordVPN solution. For security, NordPass is the only Android password manager in our rundown that uses XChaCha20 encryption. This is a more modern algorithm that they say provides future-proof security, compared to the industry standard AES-256 cipher.

It also operates on zero-knowledge principles, which means only the end-user has access to their data. Aside from this, NordPass on Android also lets you store passkeys, notes, credit card info and other important information in your vault.

Why we chose NordPass

I chose NordPass specifically for its wide range of plan options, which I envision can be beneficial to smaller teams or businesses on a tighter budget. It’s the only password manager on this list that offers both one and two-year plan options, which can help with lowering monthly costs in the long run.

1Password is another strong pick that provides top-notch security for passwords in an intuitive user interface (UI). Of the password managers on this list, 1Password’s Android UI is my subjective favorite for its no-nonsense password storage that’s packaged in a modern-looking application.

I’ve also had experience using 1Password as a remote worker myself, and I’ve had no problems using their Android app to access passwords and other logins.

Aside from its UI, 1Password is end-to-end encrypted and uses a zero-knowledge approach for maximum security. It also includes a password health dashboard called Watchtower and has dedicated integrations with other services such as Fastmail and Privacy.

Why we chose 1Password

I chose 1Password as the best Android password manager for remote workers because of its easy-to-use UI that can accommodate both tech-savvy and less tech-savvy users. Its unique Travel Mode feature that lets users set “safe for travel” vaults can also be beneficial for remote workers that aren’t tied down to one office space and want some extra security for company resources.

1Password has four paid-subscription plans, depending on the use-case and end-user. Here’s a rundown of each one’s pricing:

  • Individual: $2.99 per month.

For large organizations, consider Keeper. This is a zero-knowledge password manager equipped with an intuitive user interface and a wide range of authentication options.

It utilizes gold standard AES 256 encryption and holds the longest-standing SOC2 and IOS27001 certification in the industry — important information security standards that larger businesses should take into account.

In terms of its Android app, I had a very positive experience with Keeper mobile. It’s an almost one-to-one port of its desktop app in terms of features and was able to meet all my expectations for a modern-day password management solution.

Why we chose Keeper

Keeper carved its place on this list for its business-friendly plans and management-focused features such as shared team folders, policy engine and enforcements, security audits and activity reporting. For larger businesses that keep track of bigger teams, these monitoring and enforcement tools provide real-world value to an organization’s data management.

I also like Keeper’s One-Time Share feature, which can be a useful tool for businesses that regularly work with freelancers or contractors.

Dashlane: Best for family businesses

For family businesses, I encourage looking at Dashlane. This is a popular password manager that’s zero-knowledge and very user-friendly. It has a range of security features such as dark web monitoring, real-time phishing alerts and a built-in VPN.

While its individual plan is a bit expensive, it offers a value-laden Family plan that I find is best-in-class with regard to pricing. Per my use, I particularly liked its password history feature and password health dashboard that monitors overall password quality.

Why we chose Dashlane

I chose Dashlane specifically for its bang-for-buck Friends and Family plan that I believe is perfect for family businesses. At $4.99 per month for 10 members, it’s the best value for money in a family plan across the password managers I’ve tested. This is because most family plans range from $3-5 but only cover around five to six members.

At the same price range, Dashlane lets you have access for 10 members — double the average in other options. If you’re part of a family business, I highly recommend this option.

Pricing

Dashlane has straightforward pricing that covers plans for both consumers and businesses. Here’s a run-through of each plan:

  • Premium: $3.33 per month.
  • Friends & Family: $4.99 per month; up to 10 members.
  • Business: $8 per user, per month; unlimited seats.
  • Enterprise: Curated pricing; contact Dashlane for quotation.

Features

  • Zero knowledge password manager.
  • Dark web monitoring for compromised accounts.
  • AES 256 encryption.
  • Password Health and history dashboards.

Pros

  • Bang-for-your-buck Friends and Family subscription.
  • No recorded data breaches.
  • Bundled VPN.

Cons

  • Free version allows only 25 stored passwords.
  • Expensive business plan.

Businesses that can benefit from Android password managers

If you’re wondering what type of businesses can benefit from Android password managers, here are a few use-cases that may fit:

  • Larger businesses with a fleet of remote workers who want to make sure all company resources, passwords and credentials are safely stored and accessible.
  • Social media agencies that want an easy way to switch between multiple social media accounts and apps, without sacrificing security.
  • Online family businesses that handle multiple accounts in a single household and need an easy way to share passwords amongst each other.
  • Individual business owners that want a centralized tool to store sensitive passwords securely such as banking information, work emails and other similar data.
  • Media agencies that regularly work with freelancers who need a secure and fast way to share relevant passwords to third-party contractors.

How do I choose the best Android password manager for my business?

Choosing the best Android password manager for your business largely depends on your business’ particular needs, structure and budget. Here are a few things to consider when deciding which password manager to choose:

Look into each subscription option carefully

Many password managers tailor their subscription plans depending on the end-user. Review each plan option and what additional features are included per subscription.

For example, a smaller business may benefit from looking into a password managers’ teams plan that protects only 6–10 users but has a lower monthly price.

How many Android and non-Android devices you use

Since we’re looking at Android-specific password managers, it would be wise to consider how many Android devices you use on a daily basis. Free password managers usually have a limit to devices that can access their service, while paid options support more.

If you also work with non-Android devices, check if the password manager you’re eyeing supports the operating system of these devices. This allows you to seamlessly manage your passwords, no matter which device you’re currently using.

Maximize free trials to get a feel for each experience

While most popular password managers include relatively the same security standards and features, they do differ on in-app experience. With this, I recommend utilizing free trials or free versions to test drive and see which password managers fit your needs.

Consider open-source options

Finally, I also recommend looking into open-source password managers since they provide a layer of security not found on proprietary software. Open-source password managers have publicly available source codes, making it easier for people to catch vulnerabilities or suggest possible improvements with the product.

Review methodology

For this list of the best password managers for Android, I prioritized looking at products with the best balance of password management features, pricing and real-world value.

In particular, I looked at how each product featured could benefit a specific type of Android-using business or individual.

In terms of features, all the password managers above provide a healthy set of subscription options, password health dashboards and password-sharing capabilities. As this is a rundown on the best password managers for Android, all the options listed are currently available on the Google Play Store.

I’ve had real-world experience with all the Android password managers above and have conducted full reviews of the desktop application of each. My findings from these full reviews, in tandem with user testimonials and third-party reviews, were used to supplement my final analysis for this article.
