Best password manager apps for iPhone and iPad

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!

On the hunt for the best iPhone apps and best iPad apps to help you create, store, and manage all your passwords and logins? Passwords are what keep our stuff safe, from our iPhones, iPod touches, and iPads, and Macs, to the iCloud, Google, Dropbox, Facebook, and Twitter accounts we use on them. Long, strong, unique passwords are absolutely necessary these days to protect ourselves from data theft. However, they're impossible for the human mind to remember. That's why we need password managers. With a password manager you can generate, save, and fill long, strong, unique password for every site and service you use.

You can also use them to fill "security question" fields with additional strong, unique passwords so your security isn't compromised by easy-to-guess answers, and even generate email addresses that aren't easily guessable.

And coming soon, with iOS 8 and the Touch ID API, you'll even be able to enter them with the press of a finger.
