    "Google Chrome already can remember passwords and automatically put them in appropriate fields. Not sure about other browsers (Firefox, Safari) but I think this feature is quite standard. I don't see why LastPass can be useful, especially when its full version is not free."

    "Since I store important things on my phone having the ability to strongly encrypt it is important to me. Keeper mostly works well but I wish I had more options for encryption on my phone, I feel like it's really geared towards password management and the options for what can be locked on mobile is limited. It works better for individual files than entire folders."
