'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards.

Need a password manager? Save 50% on Enpass

Everyone who uses the internet worries about security, and we're all doing something about it. Most services require a password; users change those passwords with every login to keep hackers guessing. (At least, the smart ones do.) The catch is that all that diligence can make some people less secure. The more passwords you manage, the harder they are to keep track of. That's why more people are using a password manager like Enpass.

There's no shortage of personal security apps out there, but Enpass has a fundamental difference that's been gaining a reputation for reliability. For instance, it earned 9.1 out of 10 on VPN Pro and 4.4 out of 5 on the App Store.

First and foremost, the service doesn't expect you to trust its own servers with all your sensitive logins and credit card info. This truly is a password manager. It lets you keep all that data locally, then sync it through the cloud, so it's available on any device you own.

When you sign up, you can start saving all your usernames and passwords and create separate profiles for your work and family accounts. Enpass will auto-fill all your login info and randomly generate super-strong passwords for any new sites you sign up for.

It lets you know which of your existing passwords present a risk, and you can import any logins you already have saved from many built-in password helpers on your OS. What's more, Enpass doesn't just passively remember your stuff. It can alert you about security breaches in services or sites you use so that you can take action immediately.

Right now, there's a half-off deal on lifetime Enpass Password Manager Individual Plans. New users can subscribe for $39.99, down from the original MSRP of $79.
