LastPass is a popular choice for managing passwords and sensitive information for individuals and businesses. However, its recent security breaches have raised concerns.
While the tool still enjoys global patronage, it’s not a bad idea to consider other password managers that can serve as worthy alternatives to LastPass. Here, we look at the top LastPass alternatives and competitors for 2024.

Keeper is a cloud-based password manager with features appealing to both small and enterprise-level businesses. It comes with three major blocks of features:
Keeper is equipped with AES-256-bit encryption and features a zero-trust and zero-knowledge architecture, all of which contribute to the safety and privacy of personal and business information. Its secure storage capabilities and multiple encrypted vault entries, especially in the business options make it ideal not only for password security but also for safeguarding large credentials and critical systems.
Keeper recently introduced a passwordless authentication system, offering a better alternative to remembering one’s master password (or forgetting the master password and losing one’s account/vault entirely). With passwordless authentication, biometrics or face recognition can be used to access a password vault.
Keeper made it to our list because of its advanced security and customizable vault that not only stores passwords but safeguards personal and business sensitive data against cybercriminals.

This password management solution powered with PBKDF2 encryption goes beyond securing passwords to making it easy to migrate information from other password managers. It allows you to save your passwords, passkeys and payment information and retrieve it across several devices and platforms. Dashlane’s secure sharing options give you an edge as you will not only share passwords securely but also have control over the information shared and revoke access given at any time.
When it comes to security, Dashlane has privacy/security features like integrated VPN for WiFi protection, Dark Web monitoring and an activity log that provides a comprehensive view of all actions in an account.
We chose this product as best for multi-platform integration and secure sharing due to its features such as secure cloud sync, browser integration and customizable sharing permission.

Bitwarden is an open-source password manager with source code currently hosted on GitHub for public view. It boasts quality encryption with AES-CBC 256-bit encryption for vault data and PBKDF2 SHA-256 or Argon2 for your encryption key.
What sets Bitwarden apart from its competitors is the fact that users can enjoy its core functions, access and synchronization on unlimited devices, passkey management and data breach scanning, as well as run the password manager on personal servers — all using the free version.
The highly affordable paid tier offers much more such as emergency access and hardware security key authentication for $10 a year. Bitwarden also stands out with its broad compatibility, offering dedicated apps for different operating systems and platforms like Windows, macOS, Linux, Android and iOS. Again, it extends its integration beyond conventional browsers like Chrome and Firefox, accommodating Brave, Vivaldi and Tor.
Bitwarden made it to our list for its outstanding free version that has core functionality and the safety associated with the third-party security audits done on its open-source software.

1Password icon.

1Password caters to personal, business, enterprise and developer use cases. It is popular for its unique features and well-rounded security. For instance, it generates a 34-character secret key locally on a user’s device, which is added to the user’s account passwords to enhance authentication and encryption. It secures its users’ data in transit using the Secure Remote Password (SRP) handshake protocol without having to send them over the internet.
Worthy of mention is the fact that 1Password has undergone 19 security audits on its security and features as of May 2023, showing its commitment to regular security checks. For added security against onlookers and browser-based threats, 1Password reveals or fills data only when prompted by the user. There is also a Watchtower feature that allows users to monitor their password health and alerts them when there is any security incident on their account.
We identified 1Password for its dedication to user privacy and security as seen with its Fastmail and privacy integration for creating masked emails as well as its SRP (offline) features.

NordPass is a password manager created by Nord Security — the same company that developed NordVPN. The solution offers a passwordless, passkey and multi-factor authentication, which are key to easy login to user accounts. NordPass supports multiple identity provider integrations such as Okta, Entra ID, Google Workspace and MS ADFS. Its emergency access feature makes it seamless to use, even in emergencies when the user is not with their device.
NordPass notably stands out for its XChaCha20 encryption, which is considered more advanced encryption than the AES-256-bit. Other perks of using NordPass are its cross-browser compatibility and hassle-free sync across devices, plus its VPN integration.
We chose NordPass for its modern user-friendly interface as well as its seamless synchronization across devices and quality browser accessibility.

ManageEngine icon.

ManageEngine packs a punch with commendable enterprise password management features. For starters, the tool facilitates automatic password resets for servers, databases, network devices and other resources using its periodic password rotation feature to eradicate old or weak passwords.
It also helps enterprises consolidate all their passwords in one secure, centralized repository, reducing the proliferation of privileged accounts in enterprises. The solution uses the AES-256 encryption protocol and secures data at both the database and application levels. Enterprises can also leverage ManageEngine’s password grouping feature to de-clutter and group their password database based on enterprise requirements.
ManageEngine PM pro made it to our list for being the best in business/enterprise security with its notable features like the periodic password rotation, release-access workflow and its centralized vault.

The choice of an alternative to LastPass depends on your password management solution needs as an individual or a business. If a breach-free history, full functionality for a free version and cross-platform and cross-browser compatibility are among your needs, then you should consider any of the abovementioned alternative solutions.
See our full review on LastPass to compare.
While there are tens of possible alternatives to LastPass, I narrowed it down to these six due to their rich features that cater to individual, business and enterprise users. Apart from Bitwarden, which I currently use on my Windows laptop, I had firsthand experience using free versions and browser extensions of the tools on my laptop, iPad and Android phone (Samsung A53). My focus was to check for compatibility across these devices and compare user interfaces, password strength, autofill and password vaults.
I also considered verified user reviews to understand how real users interact with the products as well as gathered pricing information from each product’s website.
