    Windows+Android Password Manager

    Any recommendations for a Password Manager application that has fully compatable versions for both Windows (XP SP3, Win7) and Android?

    I took a look at Windows Surface but can't stomach Win 8 (and with its slick keyboard the cost is astronomical) so I picked-up a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 16GB WiFi ($299 Black Friday special)) but would like to be able to maintain passwords in a well encrypted file that can be accessed in both OSs (no need for fancy interaction with other applications, just an entry per service with user name, password, and comment field).

    I like Last Pass, good for my Droid, and my home and work computers. One password to enter, that's it, if you upgrade to premium you can put it on a usb drive too, although I haven't found the time or the need to do that yet. KeePass, and RoboForm come highly recommended in this forum too. as always ymmv!

    I also use Last Pass, but for the Android usage I had to pay for the paid version ($15 per year). I use the free version on our PC's, works great. You have to download an app on Android.

    KeePass is free for Windows and Android. I use Dropbox to synchronize both.

    +1 for KeePass.

    It's free and works very well on Windows and Android.

    No internet connection required to retrieve passwords. Built in complex password generator. Sync multiple devices with Dropbox. Setup multiple profiles (work, family etc) using different kdbx files in the dropbox container. Securely store and access data, notes, usernames, passwords (up to 30,000 chars!), email addresses, windows credentials etc all from within the same package.
    In God we trust; all others must bring data.

    I have been using free app Sticky Password in my smartphone and it is really great. You can download it here at google play. What I like the most about it is floating window, other apps don't have it.

    Sticky doesn't seem to have a free version, only a 30 day trial. Are there any limitations in the version you have?

    cheers, Paul
