Quite an extensive list of 26 password managers, I give you that. But claiming a software is 100% secure is a bold statement. Especially for proprietary, cloud based password managers.

I use KeePass because it gives you complete control over the password file.

Hello guys, it's an interesting topic. Developing myself a file manager for Android. I will like to know what are the reasons that make you like one password manager over another. This will allow me to prioritize developments and focus on the most expected features.

A KeePass file. More explicitly, (a fork), and KeePassXC.

I also use LastPass and Chrome's default.

I still don't get how can cloud be secure. Is storing plaintext passwords in Heroku PostGres (plus transfer via HTTPS) secure?

Ah, password managers. Low and medium important passwords I save to Bitwarden.

Important passwords, like the password for Bitwarden, backup of Bitwarden, certificates, cryptokeys, bitcoins, product keys, etc.. They go to an encrypted usb stick on my key chain:

My KeySmart

Nothing safer than having stuff not hooked up to a computer unless I need it. And got a backup of that too, hidden away, just in case.

Thanks for the great article. The password manager that I am already using for 2 years is unfortunately not on the list - Dashlane!😀
