I'm looking for a password safe/manager software which runs on Windows, OS X and iOS. Since we are several people using the same database/file, it's very important for us, that it can synchronize changes automatically.

Currently we are using keepass 2.x . Unfortunately using it with mono on OS X is such a pain, that we need something else.

LastPass will do the trick. It supports Windows, Linux, Mac, and mobile platforms. However, mobile is available only with the $1/mo. subscription.

The system is cloud-based so it syncs automatically. In case you need offline access to your passwords, they have LastPass Pocket app.

Do I get this right, that all our PWs are stored in the cloud and readable by LastPass? – BetaRide Jan 26 '12 at 16:57
@BetaRide: Yes, they are stored in the "cloud" and no, they are encrypted on the local system. – grawity Jan 26 '12 at 17:01
If you're worried about unauthorized access to your passwords, LastPass supports many multi-factor authentication methods. – dnbrv Jan 26 '12 at 17:04
That sounds good. I'll give it a try. – BetaRide Jan 26 '12 at 17:28
+1: Lastpass is the way to go. Plus these folks have previously shown that they are paranoid enough to put security over PR. – surfasb Jan 26 '12 at 23:49

Keepass 1.x is available in a version that runs on OS-X with x11. KeePassX unfortunately, this forces you to use 1.x on your Windows/Linux clients too.

KeePass 1.x cannot synchronize automatically. So this not an option for us. – BetaRide Jan 26 '12 at 16:56
True. However, you can store the .kdb file in a shared location and it will manage locking the the file when accessing it. – Chris Nava Jan 26 '12 at 18:23

1password works on the platforms you need and has Dropbox sync support. It's not cheap though.

After all I installed Parallels Desktop and the Windows Version 2.18 on the Mac. The Windows and iPhone Versions are fine.
