    I'm in search of a password manager, and I've been hearing good things about Dashlane and 1Password. Has anyone used either of these?

    I'm leaning towards Dashlane because of price. But more than anything, I want something that's going to work on my Mac & PC, since I'm using one for personal and the other for work.

    keepass - it's free, works on mac (with mono) and PC. I have my keyfile stored on dropbox so it synchronizes with multiple computers. I also keep a copy of the program and my key file on a usb drive attached to my car keys.

    KeePass > LastPass

    And it's a portable app too.

    This.

    This will just store the passwords for you. If you need something that handles the passwords so you don't have to type them in, then 1password, but it is not free.

    I also love keepass. It's very nice to have a portable version.

    My friend was really adamant about Dashlane, so I gave it a shot. Happy with it so far, especially the form filling. I wasn't really looking for that, but it's a nice touch!
