Secrets is an essential password manager that stores all confidential information in one safe place. Instead of using cookies to keep you signed into your accounts, this app will automatically fill your login information while keeping it protected. At the same time, Secrets offers a creative password generator, which easily comes up with unique and secure keys for all your accounts.
