This morning I read that LastPass will restrict free users to only one type of device starting next month. Since this will leave users scrambling for a replacement, folks are understandably pissed off.
I’ve been paying for LastPass since 2012. My price doubled in April, 2018 from $12 to $24 per year and jumped 50% in 2019 to $36 per year. That makes a price increase of 300% in less than 3 years. So, I’m out and looking for a replacement. I would love some input here. If you use a password manager, what do you use and why? Any other considerations?
– Use across multiple devices
– Windows and Android support (bonus for Linux but not a deal breaker)
– Strong Reputation
– Price is important
I wish I could find a recommendation by an actual cyber security expert but I haven’t yet. If you have, please post it here.
*User Amir came up with a great one. See the video at the bottom of the article. I like the sync on local network feature.
Dude kinda lost me when he whipped out the thermal blanket though. And, he’s a Mac user…
“PrivacyTools is a socially motivated website that provides information for protecting your data security and privacy. Never trust any company with your privacy, always encrypt.”
“If you are currently using a password manager software like 1Password, LastPass, Roboform, or iCloud Keychain, you should pick an alternative here.”
This site seems to advocate not using servers in the U.S including VPNs.
