LastPass places users in its free tier between a rock and a hard place. From March 2021, Free Tier users must choose between using their free tier on mobile or PC. It’s not the best situation, but it’s not the worst either. In addition to forcing a single platform, all of LastPass’s functionality remains the same.

The limitation actually puts it in line with most other password managers. So the playing field opened up to a lot of people. Here are the best LastPass alternatives for Android.

Export your passwords from LastPass to another password manager

This is a little tutorial to help you avoid the hassle of re-entering your passwords in a new password manager. LastPass can export your data to a generic CSV file, and most other password managers can import such a file. The process is a bit tedious depending on which password manager you choose, but you can save your CSV file anywhere and import it as you like. Here’s how to extract your passwords from LastPass.

  1. To go at this web address from a desktop browser. Log into your LastPass account.
  2. Hit it Advanced options option on the left side of the page.
  3. Press the Export option. Enter your username and master password if prompted.
  4. A browser window will open with all of your LastPass data.
  5. Copy and paste it into a Notepad (Windows) or TextEdit (Mac OS) file. Save the file.
  6. Navigate to the file and change the file extension to CSV. This turns the file into a CSV file.

It’s a bit boring, but from there you should be able to import that CSV file into almost any password manager and get all of your stuff back without entering the passwords one at a time. If you don’t want to go through the hassle, you can just keep the notepad file and do it manually if you want.


aWallet Password Manager

Price: Free / $ 3.99

aWallet is a simple and efficient password manager. It has all the good basic features including autofill, various organizational features, and encryption to keep your data secure and private. You can enter passwords, credit cards, banking information, etc. The free version is quite good and includes almost all the features of the app without paying anything. The premium version adds biometric security access and it’s a single in-app purchase of $ 3.99 rather than a subscription. This is a good option for people who want a password manager on their phone so they can continue to use LastPass on their computer.


Bitwarden

Price: Release

Bitwarden is a great free password manager. It offers truly diverse cross-platform support, allowing it to replace LastPass everywhere, not just on your phone. It has all the basics, including encryption, support for various types of information, a password generator, and two-step authentication. The app also works with autofill. The password generator is configurable according to what you need and also includes support for biometric unlocking. Honestly, this is probably your best overall option for the free LastPass alternatives and the one we recommend first.

Google Password Manager

Price: Release

Google Password Manager is the simplest solution to replace LastPass. Google can store your passwords and you can reuse them on your desktop through Google Chrome. This method is built right into Android and is provided by default in all Google Android phones (any phone with Google Play Store). It’s easy to use, configurable in your phone’s settings menu, and works in Google Chrome on your computer. It’s not as powerful as Bitwarden or LastPass, but it definitely works if you don’t want to deal with apps at all and it has better cross-platform support than most.

Enpass Password Manager

Price: Free / $ 23.99 to $ 47.99 per year / $ 79.99 once

Enpass is a reasonably decent LastPass alternative for free users. You only get a handful of passwords in the free version, but it syncs between your computer and phone without a hitch. It’s a decent option for people who don’t need unlimited password storage or have relatively few passwords. Otherwise, it has all the good things like autofill support, encryption for privacy, and support for multiple types of data. It worked pretty well in our testing. The only downside is the limited password storage (25 passwords in the free version). The good news is that you can shell out $ 80 and pay for the premium version just once without another subscription. This is also available via Google Play Pass for free if you have subscribed to it.


NordPass

Price: Free / $ 4.99 per month

NordPass is actually a pretty decent free LastPass alternative. The free version allows for cross-platform use, synchronization and unlimited password storage. The only caveat is that you cannot be signed in to multiple platforms at the same time. So, if you log in on your PC, you need to log back in on your phone when you use it later. It’s kinda awesome, but at least you don’t have to choose. NordPass is a bit newer than most, but it has everything you’d expect. This includes autofill, encryption, and support for things like credit cards. It’s right up there with Bitwarden in terms of options, but we like Bitwarden just a little better.


Bonus: Samsung Pass

Price: Release

It’s not a very popular option, but anyone with a Samsung phone has a built-in password manager that’s separate from Google Password Manager. It’s linked to your Samsung account, so it syncs with any Samsung device and it’s pretty easy to use. It’s not a great solution for multiple platforms, but you can use Samsung Pass on your phone and then redeem your free LastPass tier on your computer. It’s not the strongest option and that’s why it’s a bonus on this list, but it’s free and built into Samsung devices, so it’s worth thinking about.
