    I use LASTPASS.

    They have an app that runs on just about every mobile device you can think of in addition to PC's and MAC's.

    It automatically syncs to all your devices so you never are without your passwords.

    Good Luck

    I like 1password, tried data vault but the interface was too WIndows oriented for me.

    + 1 LastPass

    Great little program and from what Steve Giubson said about it on Security Now I upped to the dollar a month plan. Works across the board Windows, Mac, Linux and iPad and as long as you start out with one good password your secrets will stay your secrets as no one has access to your info (if you forget, forget it).

    I use 1 Password as well for ages on all my devices. Very simple and easy syncing between all devices. What I like is that it has an autofill adon for Safari. You just click the button and you are logged in automatically on all websites.


    Cheers

    I'm currently using RoboForm's iPad app which only provides automatic login within it's own internal browser. Do any of these password managers handle authentication prompts wherever they occur? There are lots of apps and alternative browsers that require login. For example, the Apple Store even requires login to download free apps.

    It's frustrating to have to exit that app, go to a password manager, search for the login, memorize the user ID (I use different user ID's when possible), copy the password to the clipboard, navigate back to the app, type the user ID, paste the password in and then proceed.

    I've used Roboform on the PC in the past, I chose 1Password because that's what I use on my iMac and it allows me to sync not only my iPad but also my Droid 2 phone.

    I would like to see it be more like on the iMac where there is a shortcut in the browser to it and when you need a password you just click the shortcut. It's easy enough however with multitasking to switch between screens and obtain your password. Hopefully with further development it will get even easier.

    RoboForm was quickly falling behind for a while, but made significant advances with RF 7 Everywhere. It syncs to iPad, iPhone, iPod, Android and Blackberry as well as Windows PC's and Mac's. The thing that spoiled me is RF7's ability to auto-fill passwords in Windows apps as well as in the major browsers including Safari.

    But Apple has apparently locked third-party developers out of integrating with Safari on iOS-based devices (according to Siber Systems).
