Password Managers

Lastpass recently announced that they are going to limiting free accounts to one device type:

We’re making changes to how Free users access LastPass across device types. LastPass offers access across two device types – computers (including all browsers running on desktops and laptops) or mobiledevices (including mobile phones, smart watches, and tablets). Starting March 16th, 2021, LastPass Free will only include access on unlimited devices of one type.

This has created a rush of refugees fleeing from Laspass. So, I’m going to take advantage of this situation to plugrecommend my personal favorite open source password manager, KeePass.

KeePass is great, I use it to sync my personal password database through Apple iCloud between my iPhone and my Mac. It gives you even better security than Lastpass all at the price of… free. In fact, this is even better, KeePass doesn’t send your passwords “encrypted” across the internet to Lastpass servers! All the more reason to give KeePass a try.

If you don’t like me shilling for my pet password manager. At least give another one a try.

If you aren’t that familiar with technology, and you aren’t too sure about this whole password manager thing anymore (AKA your “techie” friend told you to use a password manager.) Keep using a password manager. Because, doing that is one of the best things for your online security stance!
