The best app on the planet for Mac, iPhone, and iPad users is 1Password. And it’s the most expensive. If you’re a Mac user on a budget, then there’s another option that actually easier to use and much less expensive.

Storing login IDs, passwords, and other sensitive valuable information (credit card numbers, bank accounts, etc.) is about as easy as using Stickies.
In fact, Stickies is where many Mac users save their login IDs and passwords. Stickies is about the least secure Mac app ever for hiding valuable numbers.
Passwords Plus is the new Mac version of an old favorite (also with iPhone and iPad versions).
Using the app couldn’t be much easier unless you gave the project to someone else to enter, store, and manage passwords.
Tools are simple to use. Click the Plus sign to add an entry to Passwords Plus, then fill out the information. Repeat for other passwords, login IDs, bank information, or any categories you need.
The entry part of Passwords Plus is straightforward, but a bit tedious.
However, all that data is secured by 256-bit AES encryption. Without the password, your data is as safe as it gets.
Passwords Plus also has a built-in backup and restore function so you can save your critical data, and retrieve it in case there’s a catastrophic failure to your Mac (or, it gets stolen or lost).
There’s even a feature to help you create secure (as in ‘not easy to remember’) passwords.
The real value to Passwords Plus is the online syncing. It syncs data between Mac and iPhone and iPad so any change you make to one is updated on the others.
That also means you can carry around critical passwords, PINs, and financial information and keep it all secure and away from prying eyes.
