The longer answer

The password manager that has everything a Windows user wants.

Password managers come and go; one slip-up and most users are out the door faster than you can say, "How do I transfer my info?" Enpass has so far not erred in any major way, and, most importantly, they've been very kind to Windows users.

Enpass is currently offering a universal app for both Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile. That's right; one app to rule them all. The best part is that the app isn't some half-concocted answer to customer complaints. It's on equal footing with iOS and Android apps.

Windows Hello is supported by Enpass, and there's an Edge extension that will become available for all users with the Anniversary Update. If you're a Windows user, that's pretty exciting news. Enpass didn't skimp on other features, either; password generator, auto-fill passwords, time-based one-time (TOTP) passwords, sync using popular cloud services, folder support, and a secure web browser are all included.

The desktop version available on Enpass's website is free, as is their service — there's no monthly subscription fee. The only price you'll pay is for the Windows app. It costs about $10 and you'll be able to install it on up to 10 different Windows devices, including Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 10 Mobile. If you want to install the app on multiple platforms (e.g. Windows, Android, and iOS), you'll have to pay again for each platform.

The process of switching from other password managers makes a lot of people not want to switch. What's comfortable must be safe, right? If you aren't convinced, Enpass makes it super easy to switch. They currently have a list of 26 other password managers that you can import from, including all the big ones you'd expect. With just a few click you can be transferred over.

Enpass lets you store your data the way you want. Everything is always veiled by 256-bit encryption, but you can choose to keep it stored locally or on a cloud service, including OneDrive, Dropbox, and Google Drive. The file with all your data syncs constantly across devices, meaning you won't have any problems changing a password over here and trying to access something over there.

If you're someone who uses multiple platforms on a daily basis, Enpass has you covered.

Runner-up: 1Password Visit Site

1Password

1Password has a UWP app, supports Windows Hello, and stores your data locally — all great features for Windows users. 1Password does not, however, have an Edge extension (AgileBits developers promise they're working on one) or Linux support. 1Password also costs about $65 for a single licence — a lot of you don't mind paying more money for a security service, but many of you also might want to save a few bucks on a service that does essentially the same thing. The company also recently introduced a $5 family license for up to five people, but that ends up costing $60 per year.

Bottom line: While 1Password offers a UWP app and Windows Hello support, it does not have an Edge extension and is supported on fewer platforms.

Status: 1Password receives regular updates and is available for download on Windows, Mac, iOS and Android.

Runner-up: OneLocker Visit Site

OneLocker

OneLocker was created as a side project by an inspired computer engineering student named Sergio Pedri. What emerged is a UWP app that costs only $4 — there's no subscription fee.

It uses 256-bit AES encryption, has a password generator, is compatible with Windows Hello (ten points!), lets you store your data locally, settings can be synced across all devices, and you can import password data from other password managers using a CSV file. OneLocker has a ton of other features not mentioned here; it's worth checking out the Microsoft store for a full list.

Users of OneLocker rave about the UI and the amount of customizable options. The only thing holding this app back? No browser extensions — not even in the near future.

Bottom-line: OneLocker is a great password manager with a UWP app and Windows Hello support. The only thing holding it back? Lack of browser extensions.

Status: OneLocker is available now for Windows, Android, and Mac. It is receiving regular updates, and Mr. Pedri is very responsive to his users.

Runner-up: LastPass Visit Site

LastPass

Here are some standout features LastPass is offering in its free package: two-factor authentication, password generator, auto-fill passwords, and secure notes. If you'd like to pay $12 a year for a Premium membership, you'll acquire the ability to sync across unlimited devices, you'll get a shared family folder, and will receive premium tech support.

That's not a bad deal for $12 a year. But what about us Windows users? LastPass doesn't have a UWP app, but they do have apps for Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 10 Mobile. And the company supports every major Windows-based browser, including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Opera. Unfortunately, these apps are a bit antiquated and you might become frustrated with the user interface. LastPass has an Edge extension that will be available to all users with the Anniversary Update, but there is no support for Windows Hello.

Bottom-line: While LastPass is an excellent password manager, it is missing a couple key ingredients that would make it the best for Windows.

Status: LastPass receives regular updates and is available for Windows, Mac, and Android.
