There are many quality Android Password Managers available to you and they work very well. Some of the Android Password Managers are free, others are available for a small fee.

Managing passwords on your Android phone or tablet is no easy task. You likely have passwords for email, online banking, facebook, linked-in, twitter, etc., You could have ten or twenty password protected sites that you need access to. Unfortunately, many users simplify this task by simplifying their passwords, either by using the same simple password for all their sites or slightly modifying a root password with something to designate the specific site. By simplifying the password, users put all their personal and financial data at risk.
