    Bitwarden password manager is open source and free.

    • +6 votes

      This. Just use Bitwarden

    • +9 votes

      I’d suggest trying both out.

      I ran BitWarden and 1Password side by side and for my Apple hardware 1Password was much better. Safari for Mac support in particular for BitWarden at the time was problematic and would lock the vault every time I needed to retrieve a password, but as BitWarden didn’t have the same dev resources and Safari being seen a small case, it appeared to be treated as low priority.

      I’d try BitWarden again, but for now 1Password was more polished and reliable on my hardware and apps.

      • +14 votes

        1password is way more polished. Like, night and day imo.

        I like bitwarden, i use it. But i have to be honest and the only reason i stick with it is because I find the 1password subscription is too expensive.

    •  

      how about bitwarden vs lastpass? currently with lastpass but happy to change ship if bitwarden is much better

      •  

        Depends on your usage, I switched from LP to BW and it's been OK for me. LP (paid version) has more features and in general is easier to use, however I like the fact that BW is open source and it also (at the time I switched) offered 2FA with Google Authenticator

      •  

        LastPass GUI is more user friendly than that of BitWarden.

      • +1 vote

        LastPass have had a few security breaches, I'd be pretty wary to use them personally

      •  

        Personally I switched from LP to BW a while ago because LP Android app sucks, half of the time it doesn't work and I would need to manually copy things from my vault (I use Note9). BW Android app so far is fine, it's not as user friendly as LP on Windows, but good enough. If you use iOS only then stay with LP, no need to switch over. I think LP works much better on iOS. 1Password I have tried before too, but I'm a Windows user and 1Password on Windows is not that intuitive (at the time I tried at least which was years ago).

      How does bitwarden sync across devices?

      1Password (like all the main password managers) has been thoroughly picked apart by people like Tavis Ormandy. This is a good thing - he’s validated and prompted corrections to some the most concerning aspects of these types of services.

      I’m not sure if Bitwarden has had the same treatment.

    • +2 votes

      Agreed, not sure what the experience is like on Apple devices (as I don't own any), but I used 1password for a year before I switched to BitWarden and haven't looked back since.

      FYI - I have a Samsung Note 10+, Windows 10 laptop and use Microsoft Edge across both devices.

      • +2 votes

        Bitwarden works well enough for me between and iPhone and Windows Laptop. Signed up for premium for around $10 (maybe USD) per year to support development.

      KeePass is also open source and free.

      • +1 vote

        Yep, I've been using KeePass for more than a decade now. I'd say it's a bit clunkier than most of the others but I haven't felt the need to migrate to anything else. I'm quite happy with the security it provides on all my devices. I also like the fact that my master database is in my possession to put on the cloud only if I see fit.

    •  

      I've switched to Bitwarden for a while now, I can tell I am not going back. I have to admit that 1Passpord has much better usability and UI experience in Apple ecosystem. However, Bitwarden does its job without any issues. More importantly, Bitwarden offers online syncing which you can use on any browsers on any machines. I think Bitwarden is a great free alternative for 1Passpord.

    IF u use Apple devices just use the password app on that. So much easier.

    • +3 votes

      I know Apple devices have built-in password function. What if some ppl are using cross platforms (Apple + Microsoft)?

      •  

        This. Plus 1Password has additional functionality for storing important documents, allowing the autofill of complete credit card info (the iOS basic one doesn't fill in the CCV number for instance) and it can provide your 2FA codes as well.

      •  

        Well then (profanity) you.

        Apple users…probably.

      1Password integrates into iOS password autofill.

      Appears to be the case, I've tried these codes before and even emailed support, they clarify it's for new accounts only.

      OP and title should probably be updated to clarify.

    currently using lastpass but in android app, the fingerprint login feature is never work (so i always need to enter in master password to access vault).
    anyone has idea why?

      I don't know about you, but mine fingerprint authentication works here. Maybe you have something to do in the app settings

      I've had some problems if the keyboard is showing, if you press the hide button on the keyboard it might work, for me it's the down arrow under the keyboard on the bottom left.

        ok i will try. i have activated biometric, and all other app (banking) are showing and working fine. just this lastpass not

  • +7 votes

    Just throwing in my 2 cents - I've been using 1Password for just over a year and it's an absolute godsend IMO.
    It stores not only passwords, but also used as a Google Authenticator alternative.
    This was the main thing for me since I use 2FA for pretty much every account/profile I have anywhere that supports it.
    Since I change my phones quite often and swap between Apple and Android on a whim - It annoyed me more than anything having to re-authenticate all my accounts, so it's crazy convenient to just download the app to the new device, sign in and just have everything sync over.

    • +17 votes

      I am not so comfortable with keeping my 2FA in 1Password to be honest. Keeping passwords and 2FA in the same place seems to be less secure.

      •  

        Considering you need the master password and the secret key to get into your vault, chances of someone getting both your passwords and the 2FA codes to get in are completely slim.

        • +5 votes

          But you still put all eggs into one basket.

          •  

            @verio: Yeah, I get what you mean, but I figured as time goes on, more and more websites are going to need to have 2FA enabled, and accessing your 2FA code from your password manager is much better than having to awkwardly scroll through a 2FA code list on a separate app.

            Plus if I lose my phone, then I'm going to be more or less locked out of everything unless I have the backup code sheet. At least with 1P, I can access it through the desktop app as well.

            • +3 votes

              @swanny246: Yes, it is a never ending battle between convenience and security. As long as you understand the risks, any choice is fine.

              Plus if I lose my phone, then I'm going to be more or less locked out of everything

              I personally have set up the same 2FA app on multiple devices to prevent that. Basically when you scan a QR code when enabling a 2FA you can scan it on multiple devices.

    • +1 vote

      If people don’t want to pay for 1Password, or want a seperate app for 2FA, there is a number of good alternatives to Google Authenticator with cloud sync. OTP Auth for Mac/iOS is good, and I also liked Authenticator Plus. Both sync your config to your own cloud storage to allow recovery.

      Google Authenticators extremely bare bones and not the one I’d pick myself.

      • +5 votes

        MS Authenticator is my preferred as it handles all their stuff, and more, while Gmail app handles Google services.

        • +2 votes

          Google Authenticator handles everything as well. The issues more about backups and migration or sync between devices. I think just now they’ve added support for manual backups.

          OTP Auth that is my preferred option has both an iPhone and Mac app which allows you to sync your codes via iCloud (as piped to anything OTP Auth dev runs) which is very convenient when I’m at my laptop and don’t have my phone handy. Other ones have other perks. Microsoft’s Authenticator integration with Apple Watch for its own services is terrific for ‘tap to log in’.

          By comparison Google has one of the most basic apps out there, with backups being the main concern.

          •  

            @Smigit: They just announced backups last week, but I doubt people would switch across for any reason other than brand loyalty

            •  

              @Bedgrub: Yeah I did mention that. Reading how it’s implemented though, it seems pretty manual and an article I just read suggests you can only move 10 accounts at once. My OTP Auth app currently is managing 60 apps so I’d need to do 6 exports to move everything.

              Backups still a step in the right direction though. Ideally they’d have automated sync but like those other apps.

    • +1 vote

      2fa authy also does this free and backups 2fa.
      Is you combine 2fa and passwords in same place isnt this less secure ?

    •  

      Google Authenticator can export to a new phone too.
      I think it has recently been added to work on iPhones

    I really dont like pay monthly or yearly for those software

    I bought 1password few years ago for full price

    Otherwise I rather not use it

    •  

      I agree. How much was it and can we still buy for the full price for ongoing access?

      • +1 vote

        The outright purchases are still available and basically you don't get hosting of the vault (ie you need to sync it to Dropbox for example), and then you have different licensing terms per OS/device. I'm in the same boat though as I've bought it (both v4 and v7) on Windows, Mac, iOS and Android… and based on that I refuse to pay subscription. Besides, I'd rather it not be hosted by 1Password anyway as at least Dropbox is a third party whom I trust more.

        •  

          still available?

          I though no more..

          • +1 vote

            @shaoaxiao: I haven't checked lately but I remember once the subscription model came out, it took a lot of searching to find it… at one point you needed to download 1Password 7 and during the initial set up phase, elect to not use the subscription, and then you were sent a link to buy the software licence outright.

      •  

        Maybe more than $50?

    I use password store and have a git repo on my nas i push my lastest passwords to. Work across all my devices

      I'm on the same promo but it doesn't look like it, unless you want to create a 2nd account and export/import your data.

      The promo takes you to a new account registration form with the code already entered. When checking the renewal page, I couldn't see anywhere to enter any code.

  •  

    How do you know if its activated. I followed the link and it sent me a pin to email. I entered it, signed in, no confirmation i get 10 months free… i was on free trial before

  •  

    I have the perpetual 1Password license and its great.
    Good product and well tested which is important.

    Just to put this in context the subscription and the perpetual license ended up being similar prices
    (Eg yes i buy it but then when the upgrades which you inevitably need to get turn up then you have to pay that).
    On the other hand you don't have to upgrade and it still works. Thats why i liked the perpetual model.

    •  

      I have perpetual license too. I cannot install safari extensions but its alright, I just open the app instead.

    I haven't found any reason to move off the combination of LastPass free + Authy free for 2FA - anything I'm missing?

    • syncs across all browsers and phones
    • android app has fingerprint unlock (was slow on my old S9+, but on new S20 FE it's instant) and can configure autofiil for specific apps
    • has auto-fill integration
    • has 2FA authentication every 30 days for all devices

    Authy supports most 2FA setups (except my work Microsoft one which requires Microsoft Authenticator), has backups so migration/restoring is easy.

    I think the only useful "premium" feature I'm missing for Lastpass is their security checkup which shows you all your duplicated/insecure/hacked passwords in one screen with links to the Update Password pages of each website - think I had this initially, but not sure if they either moved it from a free feature to premium, or if I was just on the 30 day premium trial at the start…

      "android app has fingerprint unlock (was slow on my old S9+, but on new S20 FE it's instant) and can configure autofiil for specific app"

    I like 1Password, I really do. I bought it for Mac and iOS when both were one time purchases.

    I don't really want to keep data on their servers, I am fine with iCloud. And because of that I can't justify paying $60 per year or whatever the price is.

    My iOS app still works fine and syncs with iCloud based on my past purchase. And I use these free trials promos to keep my Mac app running, otherwise it would in the read-only mode.

    My Dashlane subscription is about to run out, seems expensive at USD40 per year.
    Anyone have some good reference material as far as comparison of all the available options?

    • +3 votes

      Dashlane is the only one of the major providers I havent tried yet. No reference material but here are my thoughts:

      1password is the more polished product but needs a few improvements (related to password generation) before I would consider it the best of the options I've tried. I like the concept of multiple vaults which can be shared with other family members where passwords can be moved from different vaults that you can give access to. If you have others you would share passwords with (eg Coles/woolies passwords with a partner for instance) and can get your family on board, I think this is great feature.

      Bitwarden is a solid product. Not as polished as 1password but if you just need a password manager for yourself, I think this gives most of the features people want the right price (free). Even their paid offering is cheap but I honestly dont remember what extra it got you….I dont think its a major feature or I would have taken it up. This may have changed

      My 12 month free subscription expires in 3-4 months. I guess I'll find out then whether I think 1pass is worth the money or if I move back to Bitwarden or try out Dashlane

      IMO lastpass is dead last. Id use Bitwarden ahead of lastpass any day of the week.

      Lastly, if anyone is moving between password managers - take care of your data. Delete it from the old password manager, you dont want all your passwords sitting in a service you dont monitor. Also delete from your local machine once migration is complete, I even encrypted mine in Windows before deleting the export.

  •  

    I'm going to set myself up, just wondering if there are particular things people don't use the password manager for (and why)?

    E.g. Someone told me they kept their email password separate as it's the key to everything.

    I feel like that could be valid and also counter-intuitive if it's more vulnerable as a result.

    Thanks ozB

        To that end for passwords you can likely export out via CSV and import into something else. If you make use of secure notes, license keys etc then those things may not migrate as smoothly however.

  • -3 votes

    And when you rely too much on it, you will forget your passwords, there will be situations you desperately need to login to a service but you just don't have access to the tool.

    • +2 votes

      And? You can't use the same password for different services (very bad security practice) and remembering all passwords is not an option.

    • +2 votes

      The idea is generally that you won’t even know the passwords. Best practice is the password manager generates the passwords for you, not that it’s simply auto filling things you already know.

    • +1 vote

      I've been using a password manager for nearly ten years and I've never had this problem. On the other hand, I have plenty of friends who don't use one and often complain about various accounts getting hacked because they use crap passwords that they can remember or the same password everywhere.

  •  

    Wow no love for keypass? Seems like a very robust manager imho.

    •  

      I literally came in to text search key pass in the comment.
      - 100% best free password manager
      - auto sync with google drive
      - cross-platform, can open from phone or pc
      - open-source project, easy to transfer data between different apps, but I find it very painful to import data from these paid version managers

      •  

        Bitwarden is the 100% best free password manager in my view. I used to use Keepass and it's good but I switched to Bitwarden early 2019 which is better in pretty much every way - built in cloud syncing (no need for dropbox/google drive), works well across every device (keepass was clunky on mobile), chrome extension works great, etc.

        •  

          has fingerprint login to access the vault (the master password?)
          has that random number generator (2 factors) feature?

          I totally agree.
          I had been using KeePass since its release about 17 years ago, I just switched to Bitwarden about 3 days ago and I can't image going back to KeePass now. I loved KeePass, but Bitwarden is so much more user friendly and easier to get going for beginners.

          •  

            @ElCheapoo: does bitwarden has built in authenticator (or separate app but made by bitwarden) just like lastpass and lastpass authenticator? lastpass authenticator is just the app that spill out random number to login to many apps, but it is better than google because it can backup to google account

            •  

              @ChiMot: If I understand you correctly, its a separate app.
              I use the Google Authenticator to get my 2FA codes for Bitwarden.
