The news that LastPass will no longer allow a free account for PC and mobile at the same time took many users by surprise and helped the community to go after a new program to save passwords. Also, many people have never used a password manager, but may have started to consider it recently — the Google Chrome browser is often a basic alternative, and Dropbox is slowly entering the industry.
For both cases, TecMundo selected a dozen services at no cost that store registration codes and have an additional layer of security in the login of social networks, online stores and other registrations.
Considered the best alternative to LastPass after the change, Bitwarden has a paid version, but at least for now the free one offers an almost impeccable service in password management.

This is an open source program that offers synchronization with more than one device and for up to two users, as well as storing important scanned documents such as ID cards. It is also possible to use a password generator to create unique and protected codes.
2. KeePass XC
KeePass XC is another open source program capable of generating and storing code on the computer, with integration with the main browsers on the market and optimized versions for Windows, macOS and Linux.

However, it has some downsides compared to competitors: the interface is a little more complicated for less experienced users, and requires the use of a third-party cloud, such as Google Drive, to sync with other devices.
3. Zoho Vault
The free version of Zoho Vault is ideal for individual use and offers a number of features that many full-featured programs don’t have. It allows unlimited storage of passwords and notes, as well as attachments.

The app keeps track of password access and activities to check if you were a victim of any vulnerability and allows offline consultation. There are even full reports that assess passwords on topics such as security and repeatability between services.
Dashlane is a password manager that has changed a lot over time, regaining many users who stopped using the service a few years ago. In addition to managing and creating passwords, it allows you to share up to five accounts securely, as well as personalized security alerts on intrusions and leaks. As with most programs in the industry, it also auto-completes forms and payments.

It only has one important limitation: the app only allows the storage of 50 passwords per device. If you have login to many services, it can be a hindrance.
5. WWPass PassHub
WWPass PassHub is a password manager that also generates secure codes, encrypts this data and allows unlimited synchronization between devices. It uses a QR Code scheme to open the code vault more easily anywhere with the app installed.

The free version allows you to store 200 passwords or 100 MB of files.
NordPass is a password manager maintained by the same company as the traditional NordVPN. It is another option that maintains a paid plan, but whose free option can already serve many users.
It is easy and intuitive to use, allowing automatic sync between any device, unlimited stored codes and space for document attachment. However, the app lacks additional features and features.
7. Myki Password Manager & Authenticator
Widely praised, the Myki password manager works offline, uses secure features to manage the account (such as two-factor authentication and biometrics) and allows cross-device login.

The app also monitors forums and services for any password leaks and encrypts passwords that are stored even if they are found in third-party storage services such as Google Drive. One of the downsides is that there are ads in the smartphone version.
9. True Key
True Key is the password manager from traditional security app developer McAfee. The free version only allows the storage of 15 passwords, but it does local data encryption and synchronization between devices.

If you want to migrate to the paid version, it is one of the most affordable: the annual plan costs less than R$30 and offers unlimited resources.
