Right, so I’ve been wanting to use a password manager for quite a while, but have been putting it off. As I’m getting a new desktop in a few days, I think this is the perfect time to finally take the plunge. I want something that I can also use on my android phone, that’s reasonably easy to use, and doesn’t cost too much.
I’ve been doing a little research and have ended up with either KeePass or LastPass. I’ve also been looking at 1Password, but it costs three times what LastPass does, and doesn’t seem to have any significant additional features, so I don’t know why I’d pick that.
KeePass seems particularly popular with tech people, which I’m sadly not, although if it’s not too complex I might use that anyway. LastPass seems the most straightforward and easy to use, and at $1 a month, I can’t complain about the price. I know they had a security breach last year, but afaik no user passwords were stolen, and it seems likely that their security is pretty strong now (or so I would think).
Anyway, which password manager do you use, and why? And which password manager would you recommend that I use, for the needs outlined in the beginning of this post?
