If Trend Micro’s generically named â€œPassword Managerâ€� product sounds rudimentary, you’re onto something. â€œKeep it basicâ€� seems to have been the guiding principle behind everything from its bland interface to its limited feature set. Thatâ€™s not necessarily a bad thing, but one would expect a product this simple to work flawlessly. Unfortunately, I encountered some functionality hiccups throughout my test drive that make it hard to recommend against many of the other password managers in our buying guide.

Trend Micro Password Manager offers baseline features like password capture and autofill, password generation, and a secure protected â€œvaultâ€� to store your credentials in. But it lacks many features that are essential in todayâ€™s risky online environment like two-factor authentication and secure password sharing.
