re: Password manager recommendations? VIEW POST


Reading comments and thinking to try something else, maybe there are better solutions.


I love LastPass as well. Except for this morning, the outage is driving me nuts!


yep, this is a problem with any services. The only solution I know is to have an offline password manager with multiple copies of the db, and sync it with devices through dropbox or something like that. But then what about handy browser extensions..

Buttercup actually allows you to sync via Dropbox, so you can host your vault file there and let DB do the sync'ing, and Buttercup has clients to allow you access to these sync'ed credentials on all major platforms (including within Chrome+Firefox using an extension). Disclaimer: I'm the author.

Neat! I'll have to look into that now. I'm currently a very happy LastPass user (though not for work, so I actually got by without knowing about the outage). But that does sound like an interesting solution.


This is where I would recommend Bitwarden, works well offline with synced data and once online syncs with my desktop app as browser addon, but the only problem I had was when i imported all of my browser passwords and disabled auto save within Chrome and Firefox, Bitwarden has become a bit slow ever since but its normal to be slow when you've got nearly 8K logins including yours and other peoples


Did you know that LastPass has been hacked completely at least twice?


Take "hacked completely at least twice" with a pinch of salt.

Unsure about twice but here is an official post by LastPass themselves.

From my experience, I'd recommend BitWarden as the free version will suffice on Android/iOS will suffice for most people along with proper sync between desktop / mobile apps along with being quite user-friendly.


Do you use it on Android?

Last I remembered, it wasn't working well (buggy Auto fill), and so I disabled it completely and used Google's native AutoFill and only drop into LastPass when it's not saved in my Google also.

Curious if you experienced similar things at all?


Sometimes, yes. I then have to go to the app and copy paste manually


I use it on Android. It used to get disabled a lot so I had to keep re-enabling it but that seems to have fixed itself since I updated my Android to Oreo.

Oh... Good to know. Now if LG would only update my phone from 7.0...


I also use LastPass and I like it!
Currently on the premium subscription (bought through a makeuseof deal) and I can say the android app improved over time.

Sometimes there are apps or views where LastPass can't manage to show the configured overlay with autofill but they made a handy tile for the notification bar to trigger the LastPass autofill dialog manually so this isn't painful anymore.
