Looking for a good Password Manager that works with Chrome OS.

I bought an ASUS Chrome box and am moving my old win10 stuff over to it. I need a safe Password Manager that is compatible with the Chrome OS operating system.

I've been reasonably happy with lastpass, though I don't have much experience with other options. I'd give it a recommendation. I use it on an ubuntu desktop, a chromebook, an android tablet and an iOS phone. It works fine on the chromebook.

I understand that it may leak information about which sites for which you have passwords saved, but I otherwise believe the passwords themselves to be secure.

2nd for lastpass. It's a chrome browser app and not os dependant.

Came in to say LastPass. I've been very happy with it.

I just installed lastpass on my chromebook and phone this week. It's been great.

Keepass doesn't store passwords remotely (unless you arrange it) and has Chrome plugins. It also has Android and Linux options, if you can run them on your Chromebook as well.

I always used LastPass when I had a Chromebook.

Best answer: My experience with passwords.google.com has been way, way better than lastpass

Lastpass is the bomb. Not only does it work in ChromeOS, it will work across devices, including none-Chrome browsers on other OSs, Apple and Android devices, etc.
