The best password manager apps for iPhone and iPad to help you create strong passwords, keep them secure, and use them when you need them!
Passwords are what keep our stuff safe, from our iPhones, iPod touches, iPads, and Macs, to the apps and services we use on them. Good, strong, unique passwords are also a complete pain in the ass to remember, and on mobile, an incredible pain to enter. However, given how many security breaches there've been lately - how many passwords have been compromised - it's absolutely necessary. Today on Talk Mobile we covered the importance of password managers. Due to the lack of browser plugins on iOS, iPhone and iPad password managers aren't as well integrated as they are on Mac or Windows, but there are still many on the App Store to choose from. These are the best.
1Password by AgileBits, in addition to tracking and maintaining passwords, lets you easily create new, strong, unique passwords whenever you need them. 1Password can also store all your wallet items such as credit card numbers, license info, and more. I haven't remembered a password in years simply because 1Password does everything for me. With extensions for every major desktop browser on Mac and Windows, a built-in browser on iOS, and a simple Android app, auto-filling passwords and information can be done with a simple unlock and a few taps. 1Password can also sync with iCloud for iOS-only, or with Dropbox for cross-platform.
If you're looking for an all-in-one password management solution with decent cross-platform support, 1Password fits the bill.

oneSafe is fully featured, from storing sensitive wallet items to credit cards to online logins. It also supports iCloud syncing which means all your passwords will be in sync across all your Apple devices. However, there's currently no support for non-Apple mobile or desktops, so no Windows, no Android.
If all of your stuff has an Apple logo on it, and price is an important consideration for you, check out oneSafe.
LastPass supports automatic form filling, secure password creation, wallet items, and more. It also supports the most amount of platforms out of any password manager service I've ever come across. Heck, it still even has support for WebOS and Symbian! While you can use it on your desktop at no cost, LastPass premium runs $12 a year and is required if you want to access your passwords from mobile, and from additional browser extensions.
If you absolutely need your passwords everywhere, and subscription pricing doesn't bother, LastPass is for you.
