I started using PasswordBox a few years ago and loved it. It has since been acquired by Intel and suffered a few transitional pains but ultimately I still prefer it over all others. https://www.truekey.com/
It is free for up to 15 PW and then only $20/yr for the unlimited edition.
It included facial recognition, fingerprint and regular passwords on syncs to your desktops, laptops, tablets and phones.

KeePass   http://keepass.info
Password Safe  http://pwsafe.org.

are two frequently recommended tools. I use the latter one.

I'm using keepass. It's good enough for me not to look for other pass managers.

Lastpass is probably the best for websites

I hear good things about KeePass but it is the cloud keyvault and syncing between all your devices that keeps me sold on TrueKey.
It is encrypted on your local systems so even if Intel's key store is cracked, all attackers will get is your hashes.
