Conclusion

Highly recommended! A must have!
iPhone users who are used to the convenience of the Strongbox password vault get an equivalent replacement.
You will surely use such a tool almost every day or even several times a day. If you are satisfied with it, you should show your gratitude to the developers and buy the purchase version and/or donate something occasionally, if your finances allow it.

Alternatives

I briefly tested two other apps, but quickly uninstalled them.
No, I don't know any real alternative except: use an iPhone and install Strongbox on it.
