I use 1password, which charges $2.99(US) a month billed annually, or $4.99 a month to include the whole family. I find it very good, and you really only do have to remember one password, which is the master password for your account (so make sure it is a strong one). Just one thing, if you decide to use 1password, do NOT pay for it via Apple's app store, as Apple will add their cut on top of 1password's own subscription, and the costs become higher. Buy it via their web page instead. |
It is relatively easy to set up and import your passowrds into it from Chrome or Firefox, and there are browser extensions for all the popular web browsers, and includes a password generator for generating strong passords, and a feature called Watchtower which monitors all of your logins, telling you if you have duplicate passwords, or weak passwords and advising you to change them.
You do lose a bit of convenience in that your browser will no longer autofill your passwords, and you need to enter your master password manually to log into sites, but that is a small price to pay for the much greater security. There is plenty of help on their website regarding setup on Android, Apple devices and PC's which I found useful. I have been using it for a year or more, and I'm happy with it.
Other dedicated password managers, that I know of, but which I have never used are Dashlane, and Lastpass.
Hope this helps.
