The sheer number of apps and services each of us use on a daily or weekly basis is headache-inducing when you think about all of the login credentials and passwords that entails. It’s why many people use the same password, or a variation of it, multiple times. While convenient in the near term, it’s a dangerous security risk in the long run.
A single data breach containing your account credentials could provide would-be bad actors with everything they’d need to gain access to your social media, email or, even worse, online bank accounts.
The solution? Use a password manager. Instead of reusing passwords or keeping a document that stores all of your account logins, a password manager will securely store your information and even generate then autofill complex passwords on your behalf.
We’ve been testing some of the most well-known password managers, with solutions ranging from free and built into your phone to paid offerings that include file storage and secure messaging apps. And while the free options are tempting because they don’t cost anything, you’re better off investing in your personal security. After our thorough testing and analysis, one option clearly rose above the rest:
Best password manager: 1Password offers the complete package
- With robust filling features that include integration across nearly every platform and browser extension, along with a seamless setup process and an intuitive suite of apps, 1Password is our choice for best password manager. It’s reasonably priced with a total cost of $35.88 for one user or $59.88 for up to a family of five when billed annually. There’s not much that the creators of 1Password didn’t think of adding to the service, and after our testing, it’s the clear winner.
The cat’s already out of the bag. 1Password offers the total package: security, usability, features and pricing. It starts at just $2.99 a month for one user or protects up to a family of five for $4.99 a month.
After signing up for your account, which includes the option for a free 30-day trial, you can download an app or a browser extension. The apps and extensions are used to create, fill and store your complex passwords, so you don’t have to worry about remembering them. Better yet, every major operating system is supported, including macOS, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS and even those who stick to the command line.
Browser extensions include support for Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Brave and Safari. There’s even an app, called 1Password X, that lives in your browser if you use Chrome, Firefox, Edge or Brave.
You have full control over how complex the password is in terms of length and amount of numbers and symbols, or you can pick a memorable password that strings together a series of words.
For online accounts that use two-factor authentication (2FA), which adds an extra layer of protection by requiring your username, password and then a randomly generated code typically delivered via text or mobile app (you really should turn this on for all accounts that allow it), 1Password will store your one-time passwords and autofill them in the proper text field when available. With the exception of Keeper, we found competing services either required us to download a secondary app or didn’t support 2FA codes at all.
The process for telling 1Password to fill in your credentials depends on which platform you’re using. For example, on a Mac, the keyboard shortcut of the Command and “” key will open the app. On Windows, it’s the Control and “” key.
On iOS, you can use the systemwide autofill feature that displays your login as a shortcut just above your keyboard. Depending on the version of Android you’re using, 1Password either shows up at the top of the keyboard or you have to trigger it with a long-press in the text field, then selecting Autofill.
1Password can be opened from anywhere within each platform, be it apps or in any browser, and will automatically fill in your username and password and, if you have your 2FA code added, it will either copy it to the clipboard for you to manually paste when prompted or it will autofill it for you as well.
Included with each 1Password account is extra storage for keeping personal documents, like photos of your driver’s license or social security card, along with any other private files you want to have access to at all times but don’t want to store in your typical cloud storage service.
You can turn on Watchtower, an optional feature that will analyze your usernames and passwords, letting you know how many passwords are considered weak and should be changed, and list how many have been reused across your various accounts. Additionally, 1Password will check your various account details against known leaks posted on the website haveibeenpwned.com. If your details are detected, 1Password will let you know and suggest changing your login info.
As for keeping your 1Password account secure, the company encrypts your data with three different keys, each of which have to be used in order to unlock all of your passwords and banking information inside. A hacker would need access to your encrypted data, and then they’d need to know your master password — what you use to unlock the 1Password app when fingerprint sensors or facial recognition is unavailable — and your secret key. The secret key is a complex string of 26 letters and numbers that’s linked to your account. For those nervous about storing all your most private details on 1Password’s services, you can read more about 1Password’s approach to keeping your information secure on its blog, and take comfort in the fact that (knock on wood) the company has yet to suffer from any sort of hack or data breach. Of course, no company or service is immune to attacks. LastPass suffered a breach of its own in 2015, but the attackers were unable to gain access to user vaults.
The team at 1Password has built the complete package when it comes to an app and service that keeps your personal information safe and secure. The apps are quick to get up and running, and the ease of use takes the headache out of using a password manager.
After searching the web for password managers, both free and paid, along with researching which had the best reviews, we decided on our testing pool. Compatibility across platforms via specific apps, a website or a browser extension was a must here as well.
With each of these services, we created an account and set it up as brand new so we could note any nuances and gauge the difficulty of the setup process. In terms of password creation, we thoroughly tested adding an account and creating new passwords via our own complex idea or by using the password generator component. We also tracked how quickly that password appeared to be uploaded and available in the secure cloud.
And if you’re like us and might be migrating from a different password service, we tried importing our current library (accounts and passwords) into the new service. We also used each of these as our daily drivers for a bit.
- Setup and installation: As we created our account and started the journey with each service, we paid close attention to how long it took and how easy it was to set up.
- Password library: This was an umbrella category and covered all things password-related. From importing previously saved ones to syncing across devices and even creating a password on the fly.
- Apps: Being able to access your password manager from any device with ease while also having it be secured was critical. Here we examined the interfaces across services as well as the platforms apps were available for.
- Security: Close attention was paid to how many layers of security were in front of seeing our actual passwords. If it was an app, we noted if it supported face or fingerprint recognition. We also looked at whether secret keys are required and if the service offered dark web monitoring.
Below you’ll see how we rated each of the categories listed above and the subcategories that fall underneath them. Setup and the password libraries were each rated the highest at 30.
- Setup and installation had a maximum of 30 points.
- Password library had a maximum of 30 points: adding new (10), importing from other services (10) and syncing across devices (10).
- Apps had a maximum of 20 points: platforms or extensions (10) and ease of use (10).
- Security had a maximum of 20 points: monitoring of hacks and leaks (10) and account security (10).
LastPass is a common name in the password manager realm, and for good reason. It offers a free plan that, unlike its competitors, has more features than Apple or Google’s offerings but not everything you get from a paid service (including its own). Where LastPass fell short of our top pick was in its apps and extensions. The mobile apps are good, but also the only place we could figure out where to generate a password. The apps aren’t very user-friendly, lacking features like autocopying a generated password so it’s easy to enter it when creating a new account.
Keeper offers a wide range of apps and extensions, supporting multiple platforms, and is easy to get up and running. Storing 2FA codes is built in, making it simple to keep all of your information in one place. Keeper’s plans range widely in price because the company adds more services for higher-priced tiers. For example, the base plan gives you the basics: password management and device sync. If you want more advanced features, like BreachWatch Dark Web Monitoring or secure file storage, you’ll have to pay more per month. Ultimately, the overall design and usability of Keeper is what held it back from being our top pick. The interface isn’t always intuitive and easy to use, particularly on a computer. And to get feature parity of the 1Password plan, you’re going to pay a bit more with Keeper, which also includes KeeperChat Private Messenger, an app you can only use with fellow Keeper subscribers.
If you spend all of your time inside Apple’s ecosystem of Safari, iPhone and iPad, then this free offering is a good fit for you. You can’t import or export any of your passwords, but there’s literally no setup or extra steps you need to take to start using it. Just fill in a password in an app or Safari on your iPhone, and iCloud Keychain will ask if you want to save it. Start signing up for a new account, and it will suggest a strong password. There are two main problems with iCloud Keychain as your main password manager: It’s limited to Apple products, which also means you have to use Safari as your browser on a computer. With the recent release of iOS 14, Apple recently added a tool that identifies compromised or weak passwords, and lets you know when they need to be changed, a feature the service has been lacking.
Google also has a password manager of its own, built directly into Android and the Chrome web browser. What makes this solution different from Apple’s is that it’s not just limited to Android and Chrome, thanks to a recent update on iOS. Google added the ability to access your passwords saved in Chrome anywhere in iOS, such as apps or even in Safari, allowing you to fill in information outside of Google’s ecosystem. But even then, you’re still limited to using Google on your Mac or Windows PC. Google also provides a tool to scan your credentials to see if they’re included in any sort of data breach and will suggest making a change if so.

All the products we found to be the best during our testing this year
Throughout the year, CNN Underscored is constantly testing products — be it coffee makers or headphones — to find the absolute best in each respective category.
Our testing process is rigorous, consisting of hours of research (consulting experts, reading editorial reviews and perusing user ratings) to find the top products in each category. Once we settle on a testing pool, we spend weeks — if not months — testing and retesting each product multiple times in real-world settings. All this in an effort to settle on the absolute best products.
So, as we enter peak gifting season, if you’re on the hunt for the perfect gift, we know you’ll find something on this list that they (or you!) will absolutely love.
Beginner baristas and coffee connoisseurs alike will be pleased with the Baratza Virtuoso+, a conical burr grinder with 40 settings for grind size, from super fine (espresso) to super coarse (French press). The best coffee grinder we tested, this sleek look and simple, intuitive controls, including a digital timer, allow for a consistent grind every time — as well as optimal convenience.
Best drip coffee maker: Braun KF6050WH BrewSense Drip Coffee Maker ($79.95; amazon.com)
During our testing of drip coffee makers, we found the Braun KF6050WH BrewSense Drip Coffee Maker made a consistently delicious, hot cup of coffee, brewed efficiently and cleanly, from sleek, relatively compact hardware that is turnkey to operate, and all for a reasonable price.
Best single-serve coffee maker: Breville-Nespresso VertuoPlus ($165; originally $179.95; amazon.com)
Among all single-serve coffee makers we tested, the Breville-Nespresso VertuoPlus, which uses pods that deliver both espresso and “regular” coffee, could simply not be beat for its convenience. Intuitive and a snap to use right out of the box, it looks sleek on the counter, contains a detached 60-ounce water reservoir so you don’t have to refill it with each use and delivers perfectly hot, delicious coffee with a simple tap of a lever and press of a button.
Best coffee subscription: Blue Bottle (starting at $11 per shipment; bluebottlecoffee.com)
Blue Bottle’s coffee subscription won us over with its balance of variety, customizability and, most importantly, taste. We sampled both the single-origin and blend assortments and loved the flavor of nearly every single cup we made. The flavors are complex and bold but unmistakably delicious. Beyond its coffee, Blue Bottle’s subscription is simple and easy to use, with tons of options to tailor to your caffeine needs.
Best cold brewer coffee maker: Hario Mizudashi Cold Brew Coffeepot ($25; amazon.com)
This sleek, sophisticated and streamlined carafe produces 1 liter (about 4 1/4 cups) of rich, robust brew in just eight hours. It was among the simplest to assemble, it executed an exemplary brew in about the shortest time span, and it looked snazzy doing it. Plus, it rang up as the second-most affordable of our inventory.
Best nonstick pan: T-fal E76597 Ultimate Hard Anodized Nonstick Fry Pan With Lid ($39.97; amazon.com)
If you’re a minimalist and prefer to have just a single pan in your kitchen, you’d be set with the T-fal E76597. This pan’s depth gives it multipurpose functionality: It cooks standard frying-pan foods like eggs and meats, and its 2 1/2-inch sides are tall enough to prepare recipes you’d usually reserve for pots, like rices and stews. It’s a high-quality and affordable pan that outperformed some of the more expensive ones in our testing field.
Best blender: Breville Super Q ($499.95; breville.com)
With 1,800 watts of motor power, the Breville Super Q features a slew of preset buttons, comes in multiple colors, includes key accessories and is touted for being quieter than other models. At $500, it does carry a steep price tag, but for those who can’t imagine a smoothie-less morning, what breaks down to about $1.30 a day over a year seems like a bargain.
Best knife set: Chicago Cutlery Fusion 17-Piece Knife Block Set ($119.74; amazon.com)
The Chicago Cutlery Fusion 17-Piece Knife Block Set sets you up to easily take on almost any cutting job and is a heck of a steal at just $119.97. Not only did the core knives included (chef’s, paring, utility and serrated) perform admirably, but the set included a bevy of extras, including a full set of steak knives. We were blown away by their solid construction and reliable execution for such an incredible value. The knives stayed sharp through our multitude of tests, and we were big fans of the cushion-grip handles that kept them from slipping, as well as the classic look of the chestnut-stained wood block. If you’re looking for a complete knife set you’ll be proud of at a price that won’t put a dent in your savings account, this is the clear winner.
Best true wireless earbuds: AirPods Pro ($199, originally $249; amazon.com)
Apple’s AirPods Pro hit all the marks. They deliver a wide soundstage, thanks to on-the-fly equalizing tech that produces playback that seemingly brings you inside the studio with the artist. They have the best noise-canceling ability of all the earbuds we tested, which, aside from stiff-arming distractions, creates a truly immersive experience. To sum it up, you’re getting a comfortable design, a wide soundstage, easy connectivity and long battery life.
Best noise-canceling headphones: Sony WH-1000XM4 ($278, originally $349.99; amazon.com)
Not only do the WH-1000XM4s boast class-leading sound, but phenomenal noise-canceling ability. So much so that they ousted our former top overall pick, the Beats Solo Pros, in terms of ANC quality, as the over-ear XM4s better seal the ear from outside noise. Whether it was a noise from a dryer, loud neighbors down the hall or high-pitched sirens, the XM4s proved impenetrable. This is a feat that other headphones, notably the Solo Pros, could not compete with — which is to be expected considering their $348 price tag.
Best on-ear headphones: Beats Solo 3 ($119.95, originally $199.95; amazon.com)
The Beats Solo 3s are a phenomenal pair of on-ear headphones. Their sound quality was among the top of those we tested, pumping out particularly clear vocals and instrumentals alike. We enjoyed the control scheme too, taking the form of buttons in a circular configuration that blend seamlessly into the left ear cup design. They are also light, comfortable and are no slouch in the looks department — more than you’d expect given their reasonable $199.95 price tag.
The Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick has thousands of 5-star ratings across the internet, and it’s easy to see why. True to its name, this product clings to your lips for hours upon hours, burritos and messy breakfast sandwiches be damned. It’s also surprisingly moisturizing for such a superior stay-put formula, a combo that’s rare to come by.
The Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner is a longtime customer favorite — hence its nearly 7,500 5-star reviews on Sephora — and for good reason. We found it requires little to no effort to create a precise wing, the liner has superior staying power and it didn’t irritate those of us with sensitive skin after full days of wear. As an added bonus, it’s available in a whopping 12 shades.
The Steelcase Series 1 scored among the highest overall, standing out as one of the most customizable, high-quality, comfortable office chairs on the market. At $415, the Steelcase Series 1 beat out most of its pricier competitors across testing categories, scoring less than a single point lower than our highest-rated chair, the $1,036 Steelcase Leap, easily making it the best bang for the buck and a clear winner for our best office chair overall.
Best ergonomic keyboard: Logitech Ergo K860 ($129.99; logitech.com)
We found the Logitech Ergo K860 to be a phenomenally comfortable keyboard. Its build, featuring a split keyboard (meaning there’s a triangular gap down the middle) coupled with a wave-like curvature across the body, allows both your shoulders and hands to rest in a more natural position that eases the tension that can often accompany hours spent in front of a regular keyboard. Add the cozy palm rest along the bottom edge and you’ll find yourself sitting pretty comfortably.
Best ergonomic mouse: Logitech MX Master 3 ($99.99; logitech.com)
The Logitech MX Master 3 is an unequivocally comfortable mouse. It’s shaped to perfection, with special attention to the fingers that do the clicking. Using it felt like our fingers were lounging — with a sculpted ergonomic groove for nearly every finger.
Best ring light: Emart 10-Inch Selfie Ring Light ($25.99; amazon.com)
The Emart 10-Inch Standing Ring Light comes with a tripod that’s fully adjustable — from 19 inches to 50 inches — making it a great option whether you’re setting it atop your desk for video calls or need some overhead lighting so no weird shadows creep into your photos. Its three light modes (warm, cool and a nice mix of the two), along with 11 brightness levels (among the most settings on any of the lights we tested), ensure you’re always framed in the right light. And at a relatively cheap $35.40, this light combines usability and affordability better than any of the other options we tested.
Best linen sheets: Parachute Linen Sheet Set (starting at $149; parachute.com)
Well made, luxurious to the touch and with the most versatile shopping options (six sizes, nine colors and the ability to order individual sheets), the linen sheets from Parachute were, by a narrow margin, our favorite set. From the satisfying unboxing to a sumptuous sleep, with a la carte availability, Parachute set the gold standard in linen luxury.
Best shower head: Kohler Forte Shower Head (starting at $74.44; amazon.com)
Hands down, the Kohler Forte Shower Head provides the best overall shower experience, offering three distinct settings. Backstory: Lots of shower heads out there feature myriad “settings” that, when tested, are pretty much indecipherable. The Forte’s three sprays, however, are each incredibly different and equally successful. There’s the drenching, full-coverage rain shower, the pulsating massage and the “silk spray” setting that is basically a super-dense mist. The Forte manages to achieve all of this while using only 1.75 gallons per minute (GPM), making it a great option for those looking to conserve water.
Best humidifier: TaoTronics Cool Mist Humidifier (starting at $49.99; amazon.com)
The TaoTronics Cool Mist Humidifier ramped up the humidity in a room in about an hour, which was quicker than most of the options we tested. More importantly, though, it sustained those humidity levels over the longest period of time — 24 hours, to be exact. The levels were easy to check with the built-in reader (and we cross-checked that reading with an external reader to confirm accuracy). We also loved how easy this humidifier was to clean, and the nighttime mode for the LED reader eliminated any bright lights in the bedroom.
Best TV: TCL 6-Series (starting at $579.99; bestbuy.com)
With models starting at $599.99 for a 55-inch, the TCL 6-Series might give you reverse sticker shock considering everything you get for that relatively small price tag. But can a 4K smart TV with so many specification standards really deliver a good picture for $500? The short answer: a resounding yes. The TCL 6-Series produces a vibrant picture with flexible customization options and handles both HDR and Dolby Vision, optimization standards that improve the content you’re watching by adding depth to details and expanding the color spectrum.
Best streaming device: Roku Ultra ($99.99; amazon.com)
Roku recently updated its Ultra streaming box and the 2020 version is faster, thanks to a new quad-core processor. The newest Ultra retains all of the features we loved and enjoyed about the 2019 model, like almost zero lag time between waking it up and streaming content, leading to a hiccup-free streaming experience. On top of that, the Roku Ultra can upscale content to deliver the best picture possible on your TV — even on older-model TVs that don’t offer the latest and greatest picture quality — and supports everything from HD to 4K.
Best carry-on luggage: Away Carry-On ($225; away.com)
The Away Carry-On scored high marks across all our tests and has the best combination of features for the average traveler. Compared with higher-end brands like Rimowa, which retail for hundreds more, you’re getting the same durable materials, an excellent internal compression system and eye-catching style. Add in smart charging capabilities and a lifetime warranty, and this was the bag to beat.
Best portable charger: Anker PowerCore 13000 (starting at $31.99; amazon.com)
The Anker PowerCore 13000 shone most was in terms of charging capacity. It boasts 13,000 mAh (maH is a measure of how much power a device puts out over time), which is enough to fully charge an iPhone 11 two and a half times. Plus, it has two fast-charging USB Type-A ports so you can juice a pair of devices simultaneously. While not at the peak in terms of charging capacity, at just $31.99, it’s a serious bargain for so many mAhs.
Trump’s misleading tweet about changing your vote, briefly explained
Searches for changing one’s vote did not trend following the recent presidential debate, and just a few states appear to have processes for changing an early vote. But that didn’t stop President Trump from wrongly saying otherwise on Tuesday.
In early morning posts, the president falsely claimed on Twitter and Facebook that many people had Googled “Can I change my vote?” after the second presidential debate and said those searching wanted to change their vote over to him. Trump also wrongly claimed that most states have a mechanism for changing one’s vote. Actually, just a few states appear to have the ability, and it’s rarely used.
Trump’s claim about what was trending on Google after the debate doesn’t hold up. Searches for changing one’s vote were not among Google’s top trending searches for the day of the debate (October 22) or the day after. Searches for “Can I change my vote?” did increase slightly around the time of the debate, but there is no way to know whether the bump was related to the debate or whether the people searching were doing so in support of Trump.
It was only after Trump’s posts that searches about changing your vote spiked significantly. It’s worth noting that people were also searching for “Can I change my vote?” during a similar period before the 2016 presidential election.
Google declined to comment on the accuracy of Trump’s post.
Trump also claimed that these results indicate that most of the people who were searching for how to change their vote support him. But the Google Trends tool for the searches he mentioned does not provide that specific information.
Perhaps the most egregiously false claim in Trump’s recent posts is about “most states” having processes for changing your early vote. In fact, only a few states have such processes, and they can come with certain conditions. For instance, in Michigan, voters who vote absentee can ask for a new ballot by mail or in person until the day before the election.
The Center for Election Innovation’s David Becker told the Associated Press that changing one’s vote is “extremely rare.” Becker explained, “It’s hard enough to get people to vote once — it’s highly unlikely anybody will go through this process twice.”
At the time of publication, Trump’s false claims had drawn about 84,000 and 187,000 “Likes” on Twitter and Facebook, respectively. Trump’s posts accelerated searches about changing your vote in places like the swing state of Florida, where changing one’s vote after casting it is not possible. Those numbers are a reminder of the president’s capacity to spread misinformation quickly.
On Facebook, the president’s post came with a label directing people to Facebook’s Voting Information Center, but no fact-checking label. Twitter had no annotation on the president’s post. Neither company responded to a request for comment.
That Trump is willing to spread misinformation to benefit himself and his campaign isn’t a surprise. He does that a lot. Still, just days before a presidential election in which millions have already voted, this latest episode demonstrates that the president has no qualms about using false claims about voting to cause confusion and sow doubt in the electoral process.

Nearly 6,000 civilian casualties in Afghanistan so far this year
From January to September, 5,939 civilians – 2,117 people killed and 3,822 wounded – were casualties of the fighting, the UN says.
Nearly 6,000 Afghan civilians were killed or wounded in the first nine months of the year as heavy fighting between government forces and Taliban fighters rages on despite efforts to find peace, the United Nations has said.
From January to September, there were 5,939 civilian casualties in the fighting – 2,117 people killed and 3,822 wounded, the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) said in a quarterly report on Tuesday.
“High levels of violence continue with a devastating impact on civilians, with Afghanistan remaining among the deadliest places in the world to be a civilian,” the report said.
Civilian casualties were 30 percent lower than in the same period last year but UNAMA said violence has failed to slow since the beginning of talks between government negotiators and the Taliban that began in Qatar’s capital, Doha, last month.
The Taliban was responsible for 45 percent of civilian casualties while government troops caused 23 percent, it said. United States-led international forces were responsible for two percent.
Most of the remainder occurred in crossfire, or were caused by ISIL (ISIS) or “undetermined” anti-government or pro-government elements, according to the report.
Ground fighting caused the most casualties followed by suicide and roadside bomb attacks, targeted killings by the Taliban and air raids by Afghan troops, the UN mission said.
Fighting has sharply increased in several parts of the country in recent weeks as government negotiators and the Taliban have failed to make progress in the peace talks.
The Taliban has been fighting the Afghan government since it was toppled from power in a US-led invasion in 2001.
Washington blamed the then-Taliban rulers for harbouring al-Qaeda leaders, including Osama bin Laden. Al-Qaeda was accused of plotting the 9/11 attacks.
Calls for urgent reduction of violence
Meanwhile, the US envoy for Afghanistan, Zalmay Khalilzad, said on Tuesday that the level of violence in the country was still too high and the Kabul government and Taliban fighters must work harder towards forging a ceasefire at the Doha talks.
Khalilzad made the comments before heading to the Qatari capital to hold meetings with the two sides.
“I return to the region disappointed that despite commitments to lower violence, it has not happened. The window to achieve a political settlement will not stay open forever,” he said in a tweet.
There needs to be “an agreement on a reduction of violence leading to a permanent and comprehensive ceasefire”, added Khalilzad.
1/4 I return to the region disappointed that despite commitments to lower violence, it has not happened. The window to achieve a political settlement will not stay open forever. https://t.co/hVl4b032W6
— U.S. Special Representative Zalmay Khalilzad (@US4AfghanPeace) October 27, 2020
A deal in February between the US and the Taliban paved the way for foreign forces to leave Afghanistan by May 2021 in exchange for counterterrorism guarantees from the Taliban, which agreed to sit with the Afghan government to negotiate a permanent ceasefire and a power-sharing formula.
But progress at the intra-Afghan talks has been slow since their start in mid-September and diplomats and officials have warned that rising violence back home is sapping trust.
