    I have used Keepass and LastPass for storing my passwords in the past. The dilemma that I currently have is that I cannot convince anyone else in my household to use them, and the programs don't all work on all the different platforms that we have in use. I am making a strong push to get everyone to stop using post-it notes, and other various insecure measures to both record and remember passwords.
    With that being said, I am looking at alternatives to Keepass and LastPass because although I like both of them, others do not. I have looked at Password Safe, Norton Identity Safe, and Dashlane, although I don't like the $29.99 annual fee for multiple devices per user (Dashlane).
    Does anyone have further suggestions of password managers that may fit our needs? (Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 8 mobile, Ipad)

    I was going to suggest 1Password but it doesn't have a Windows Phone app.

    LastPass is available for all of those platforms. If you do not want to pay the annual fee, just use the bookmarklet.

    I have looked over several of them over the years. I only went with KeePass and LastPass because they seemed to be the safest of their types and were the easiest to use over multiple locations and devices. IMO, for Windows, there are no other choices for what you are describing.

    You can give passwordbox or mitro a try.

    Thanks for the suggestions and input everyone! After looking at about 20 different products I have to agree with Han, that LastPass is probably the best option for us. I think that for the $12 premium LastPass account, it is also the most cost effective, and it will work on all the platforms I use. I am not fond of putting my most critical information in the cloud, and will continue to use something different locally for critical data.
