The Only Password Manager You Should Be Using

I have nothing but great things to say about Bitwarden. I have tried many password managers and while most I tried were usable, they didn't feel complete, either because of the feature set or because of the pricing. Once I found Bitwarden, I haven't wanted to look anywhere else since.

Pros

-Price
-Features

I mean, those are really the two main points people look for when determining their password manager, right?

The price is unbeatable; if you're just using it for yourself, it's free. Free gets you every creature comfort feature you would pay top dollar for elsewhere, such as multi-device syncing and apps across all of your devices.
The features are second to none. They have everything you would get from Lastpass and more.
The interface is also top-notch. Lastpass is a jumbled nightmare after you've used Bitwarden. I also installed Bitwarden on mobile and it works flawlessly and is such a lifesaver.

The other major thing to point out is that it's open source, meaning that it's more secure than most as it's audited by other regularly, unlike Lastpass where ne'er-do-wells want to break in, coding saints look over you when you're using Bitwarden.

Cons

Honestly? Nothing. Even if you need to pay for their premium packages, they're dirt cheap, coming in at $10/year for an individual or $40/year for 6 people.

For the most part, I like Bitwarden. Despite some of it's shortcomings, it is a powerful password manager, and with the ability to self-host your passwords provides a great level of security.

Pros

Bitwarden is a powerful and flexible password manager, with the ability to not just store basic password, but also one-time (two factor) passwords, non-password items (such as credit cards, identification documents, and memberships), and secure notes. Bitwarden has browser extensions for all of the big browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc.) that work extremely well allowing you to not only automatically enter passwords on websites, but to automatically generate passwords and store them directly in Bitwarden. Furthermore, Bitwarden offers both a free tier, with a lesser feature set (specifically in not allowing the storage of one-time passwords) as well as an extremely inexpensive subscription tier ($10/year). Finally, by default, all of your passwords are stored in the Bitwarden cloud with easy to setup synchronization between your devices; however if you are uncomfortable storing all of your passwords in the cloud, Bitwarden offers a powerful self-hosting option (albeit it is difficult to setup).

Cons

The user interface is functional, but clunky. Being fully cross-platform, it has non-native look and feel regardless of the platform you are using. In addition, while it is great that their is a free tier, if you use two-factor authentication for your accounts that support it (which you absolutely should do!), the free tier is far less useful as it does not support two-factor one-time passwords. Finally, the self-hosting option is fantastic, but is relatively difficult to setup (especially for the non-tech savvy users). Self-hosting requires you to have your own domain name, an always on computer, and an understanding of Docker. Bitwarden provides a decent tutorial on how to set all of this up, but it is not for the faint of heart

Alternatives Considered

Keeper Security and LastPass

Reasons for Choosing Bitwarden

1Password is a fantastic password manager, but it's owner, AgileBits, has made some extremely questionable, frustrating, and user-hostile decisions over the past couple months. As such, I am actively looking into migrating to a new password manager - Bitwarden being one possible option.

Switched From

1Password

Reasons for Switching to Bitwarden

iCloud Keychain is an attractive alternative if you are all in on the Apple ecosystem, but lacks some power features found in alternatives. Minimalist Password Manager has a very attractive interface, a good road map, and very responsive developer - but is macOS/iOS only. LastPass can be expensive, no native app, and a clunky interface. Keeper is downright expensive and just simply not great.

Moved from LastPass which became paying. Bitwarden has similar features for free but not as user intuitive.

Pros

Syncs passwords across Windows and Android devices, easy to create new passwords, secured on Android by finger print

Cons

Sometimes end up with multiple entries for the same site, name of site copied by bitwarden is not always accurate, doesn't auto fill always

Does all that I need it to do and more, I will definitely be using if for years to come.

Pros

- Simple, intuitive, easy to use software that has a great security reputation (open source!) so you can sleep well at night knowing your passwords are safe
- Wide compatibility between iOS, Mac, Android, Windows, different browsers etc meaning you can easily access your passwords anywhere
- Supports biometrics meaning you can quickly log in and access your passwords
- Extra features like secured notes, password generator, autofill etc which are all added value in a free software
- Small annual fee to support developers will also grant you extra features, but these are just extras and not necessary

Cons

- Password generation could be more smooth so that it autofills, instead of having to copy the generated password and then after x amount of seconds the clipboard clears due to security measures and then you've lost your newly generated password. I would prefer it autofilling the newly generated password
- On Android app, be able to select passwords directly in the field instead of having to enter the vault and select them there, fewer steps would make it even quicker

Great user experience and simple management

Reviewed on 2021/12/20

Pros

Password encryption - end 2 end encryption of passwords so they cannot be stolen from Bitwarden servers.
Shared collections for team secrets - document passwords, server access, etc.
Secure password message - send password to other user securely

Cons

Yubikey MFA support only in premium version. Letdown but not a dealbreaker
