What do you use for password management?

Tangentially, what do recommend to less tech-savvy people?

I think Bitwarden has a great mix of user friendliness, security, and convenience, while being open source and having options for self-hosting.

Agree. As a local password storage (and alternative) I use KeepassXC, but very rarely.

KeePassXC on desktop, Keepass2Android on, you guessed it, Android. Still haven’t figured out how to sync across devices efficiently, though.

I sync my database with syncthing and use KeePassXC on desktop and KeePassDX on android.

Another good option to consider, thank you.

I store the database on my nextcloud server, and access it through the apps from my devices. Works well.

I actually run a nextcloud server, so I’ll give that a shot, thanks!

keepassxc for all desktops/laptops, Keepass2Android for mobile, syncing to locally hosted Nextcloud instance. Yubikey for 2fa security. Wireguard VPN for remote access/syncing when off the local network.

Bitwarden for me. Moved over from 1Password a couple years ago and pretty happy with it.

I use Password Store + Git + GPG, but I don’t recommend for non-tech-savvy people. If you want something less technical, Bitwarden has kinda worked with my family.

Lesspass. It doesn’t remember a list of passwords - it generates them on the spot. So it’s a slightly different model that’s IMO easier to use and more secure.

Can’t reset master password unless you change all passwords with it :/

I guess that’s true. Why would you ever change your matter password though?

What do you use for password management?

KeePassXC. I keep my database stored locally and use unison to sync it.

Tangentially, what do recommend to less tech-savvy people?

KeePassXC. Independence from “the cloud” should be encouraged.

I use KeePassXC on both desktop and browser which I then manually sync via my phone dock that connects to my computer.

I’m into KeePass2 shared via SyncThing between Desktop and Android.

Also the browser builtin stuff for non-critical ones in addition.

I personally use unix pass with rofi as well as an android companion. my passwords are synchronized via git. to everyone saying KeePass, what is the appeal? I moved from bitwarden to get out of a cloud. I didn’t know about KeePass at the time.

keepassxc. Stored locally uses strong encryption. Just make sure to use a very secure password for it and you should be good and also have it generate the passwords for you and goes without saying is have backups of it on external devices

I use lockwise. It’s not the most feature complete, but it’s quite simple to use and has good integration with FF, so it’s what I recommend to less tech-savvy people. I have used Keepass in the past but the lack of sync is quite annoying. I might try bitwarden in the close future though.

lockwise

Is it using Firefox Sync as backend or has a separated one used by the clients which connects to it?

Using the firefox Sync backend. That’s what makes it easy to use. It’s available on any device that has Firefox installed.

@Echedenyan

That is great, thank you.

There’s also an Android app (same name) that can autofill passwords on Android outside the browser.

@GUID99

1Password, because of its multi platform functionality (web browser, ios app, windows app etc.)

@ff0000

1password, the combination of usability on all devices, and a firefox plugin makes it the most usable one. It is a paid service though.

Exact same software for me, except I’ve never tried Aegis as a 2FA. I’m not sure if KeePassDX supports 2FA, but KeePassXC does, just click setup TOTP in one of the menus.

edit: it looks like KeePassDX does support TOTP.

Bitwarden uses MS SQL Server in the server side on both main and custom installations.

First, to avoid people confusing: MS SQL Server -> MicroSoft SQL Server

It is propietary software.

It is the equivalent to recommend an Android app using FireBase services of any kind (even DB) with the exception that you can selfhost.

I prefer to maintain searching or propose them in group PostgreSQL/MariaDB support at minimum.
