How the U.S. News Password Manager rating system works

U.S. News took a detailed approach to the 2021-2022 Password Manager evaluation. Here is how their methodology works:

  • Vendor Research: Starting with 18 password managers, U.S. News narrowed the list considerably based on key product features, compliance requirements, and software inspections by credible third parties.

  • 360 Analysis of Third-Party Reviews: The rating system is based on a composite analysis of the reviews published by credible third-party review sources.

Bitwarden "costs significantly less than competitors. Bitwarden's free version will satisfy many people with all of the standard password management features like storing, generating, and synchronizing passwords between devices.”
