Received this coupon link since I was a previous customer of theirs:

Not sure how they stack up to other password managers, but for $20 lifetime subscription, you really can't go wrong.

I have bought their mobile app (V4)... now with V5, not only I have to pay again to use the new version but my old V4 files (saved passwords) won't work with V5 and V4 is no where to be found outside of your download history... never again with these guys.

The program is ok but these guys are terrible! :D

In V4 it was $10 for the desktop program and I would keep having to email them for key codes for my computer since there is limited activation. Then after a few years they stop responding! Why not just up the activation limit instead?

Keepass with plugins destroys this anyways and its free! :D

Except that other options like KeePass are 100% free?

Does KeePass sync across multiple devices?

I've been using the older mSecure for a while now and it works well, it appears to have very strong encryption and the file can be stored on Box. If you forget your password key you're screwed though, no way to recover.

Unless the password manager exposes your passwords and your bank accounts get emptied.

That would be 'wrong'.

Apparently LastPass is free now. You just don't get some of the premium features. I say apparently cause I have always paid for premium. I used to use Keepass and sync over DropBox.

I think Keepass is great and light weight. My issue with Keepass was using it on mobile. It always felt like I had to do something hacky in order to have mobile support.

In the end I would recommend Keepass or Lastpass. If you need mobile support, I'd go with Lastpass. If you absolutely want "TNO" and can live with mobile headaches, go with Keepass.

EXTRA NOTES:
Lastpass also keeps track of known security breaches. It will flag any sites in your account which are known to have been hacked and let you know that you should change your password. You can also run a manual security test to see if any of you accounts were compromised.

You can set up your account to give your passwords to someone you trust if you haven't used your account for an extended period of time (the length of time is chosen by you). This is good if you happened to pass away suddenly and your significant other might need access to accounts. I use Lastpass almost every single day except when I'm on vacation. So I have set up my emergency account for inactivity of 2 months.

Keepass is more of an app than it is a service. It's more flexible than other methods but it's not as straight forward for the every day user.

You can choose to sync the database on a cloud service of your choosing or to sync it via other methods like owncloud. Or you can not sync it at all.

Another alternative is Bitwarden. It's like an open source LastPass.

I can't speak to Keepass, but I've been using the free version of Lastpass for a while now and it's great. Have it on my mobile, laptop, and 2 desktops. Easy to use and keep all of the randomly generated passwords in order. Highly recommended.
Please don't ask or beg for "thanks". Don't act like this is Facebook. If someone found your post helpful, let them decide if they want to make that click. The more you beg, the less you'll get. Cheers

Can anyone recommend another mobile app similar to the mSecure one where I locally encrypt my password? I don't ever, ever trust online synced services, hacking is so much more prevalent these days. As I noted earlier, mSecure has terrible support for software so want to get/buy a different reliable app which won't lock me out of my own data with newer versions. Tnx.

Lastpass is encrypted locally on you computer. It is never sent to the cloud unencrypted. Apparently with Bitwarden, which is a Lastpass competitor, you can run your own cloud server. Otherwise, Keepass is probably for you...?
