Options for managing passwords across teams

Save time when sharing passwords within your team

I was asked this question quite a few times in the last year, here’s my definitive answer

How do you manage passwords within your team?

I researched this last year for my own startup and couldn’t find anything that really suited my needs that let me easily and securely share passwords on a need-to-know basis to team members and contractors. This blows my mind because from what I’ve encountered, this an unsolved problem that every single smaller company and startup must have.

Let’s first take a look at some services and apps that attempt to remedy this problem:

Just recently in the past year or so there has been a giant growth for solutions to this issue.

I’m currently using KeePass throw into Dropbox which works for me for many reasons
1. I can access it anywhere
2. It’s encrypted (via KeePass)
3. It’s free! KeePass is Freeware and the free account on Dropbox has more than enough room for KeePass.
4. There’s an app for both KeePass (iOS, Android) and Dropbox (iOS, Android)

What are you using? Let me know in the comments below.

UPDATE: Just found this gem of a service called Meldium which is a team password manager, cloud identity and access management service. Pretty nifty!
