Use this instead of LastPass

I switched to it due to LastPass's new limitations, is OpenSource you can install it on your own servers and manage your own key management system, is cheap, and has a ton of features, the same as LastPass.

Pros
Its free version offers the same as the previous LastPass plan, you can use it in both Mobile and PCs, pricing is much cheaper, the android App is not as buggy as LastPass.

Cons
The UI could be better, there are some quirks but you can move around them easily, Its design is not as nice as LastPass.

The Only Password Manager You Should Be Using

Review Source: Capterra

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.

Despite its looks, it works just as well as its competition.

Pros
It works well for cheap, allowing us to store clients credentials securely and share them easily among the team.

Cons
It looks like a 15 year old Software. There’s not a whole lot of aesthetic to it, and this can make it feel hacky.

Extremely Impressed By the Free Product

Used daily for 1-2 years

Review Source: Capterra

BitWarden helps to configure and manage secure credentials on all of the sites that I use. It is highly recommended.

Pros
After the Password Manager that I previously used switched to a more expensive pricing model, I decided to try BitWarden and I am glad that I did. It has all the security and password management functions I was looking for, including 2FA for account login.

Cons
It very rarely happens, but sometimes username and password forms cannot be filled as expected. There is a very rare problem and doesn't happen nearly enough to impact my opinion on the product.

Great password management tool!

Used daily for 6-12 months
Reviewed 2021-10-07
Review Source: Capterra

I was a bit scared at first to use this password management tool as I was very happy with the previous one but so far it has been great. Importing all the password took just a minute and everything was there. There is a bit of adjustment but once you get the hang of it, there is no going back.

Pros
The fact that Bitwarden has open-source code and is very clear about their tool and what they are doing. The free option is enough for most people but even the paid version is very cheap for what it offers you. The phone app is great and very easy to use!

Cons
Compared to some other password managers, Bitwarden doesn't always recognize when a new password is created and therefore doesn't offer to save it automatically.

Excellent, although some key features are not available to free users

Review Source: Capterra

A sound product, cross-platform, reliable. Premium memberships are reasonably priced and the free version lacks some key functions.

Pros
Bitwarden is open source. This means that anyone can look at the code and check that it does not contain any malicious modifications. Also, it is adopted by a large number of users, making it easier for you to share passwords with others. Premium options are fairly priced.

Cons
I wish a free user could share passwords (as in Lastpass) and save attachment (as in Zoho Vault). Also, switching from a different PW manager has proved a headache, since I had to use a plain csv format and most of my details went lost or mismanaged.

Sharing and self-hosting, at a winning price point

Used daily for 1-2 years

Review Source: Capterra

After using Keepass for years, the need to share customer credentials in case of the "hit-by-a-bus" scenario led me to search for a solution. Bitwarden had the self-host and open source features I sought. Have been running a BW server in Docker for over a year, and most of my customers now have read-only access to their subset of my password database.

Pros
Bitwarden has been audited for code security. The pricing model is very fair and affordable by almost anyone. And you can self-host if you have the need to keep all your data internal. Passwords can be organized into folders, and shared as collections with privileges set by user. You can store credit cards as well. It has an extension or app for every major platform, and auto-fills logins on web pages and in phone apps. It also supports 2FA.

Cons
Setting up users to share collections is a little complicated. It could use a little work on user management - admin should be able to reset user passwords.

We've had a lot of personnel changes lately, and securing passwords to critical apps and systems is a must. This product has solved that challenge, and made it easy to do so.

Pros
The product is easy to use, intuitive admin portal, pairs well with browsers via extensions, and is very robust in terms of features and capabilities, especially for the price!

Cons
Only thing I could see was the lack of ability to log back in once signed out via browser extension.

A brilliant Open Source Password Manager

Very good overall. Using this as a team has worked well and the apps are stable.

Pros
The price was the initial thing which attracted me to this solution. There are a whide range of apps for all platfroms. All seem very stable. Features such as the TOTP token generator are really useful to have. The new sharing features are really welcome as that was a big issue before and this solves it nicely.

Cons
If you forget your master password, there is absolutely no way to get in. I understand this is to keep the vaults secure as possible. Luckily the emergency contacts feature helps to resolve this issue but it could be an issue if you were working alone.

Bitwarden: The Best Option

Used daily for 6-12 months
Reviewed 2021-07-20
Review Source: Capterra

Bitwarden became and will stay the best option in password management because of its high-level encryption, seamless transition between mobile and PC, and because it's entirely free.

Pros
One of the pros is how easy it is to switch from other password managers to Bitwarden and have all your passwords carry over. The biggest pro is that this software is completely free and open-source, making it a more affordable option compared to more popular managers.

Cons
The only con is that the app feels a little unpolished/glitchy at times when compared to bigger and more developed password managers, making it harder to use.

Pros
Bitwarden has a feature set that is comparable to all its competitors, at a fraction of the cost. It's also compatible with most OSs, which makes it one of the few viable options if you are a Linux user.

Cons
The UI is less intuitive compare to its mainstream competitors, but it's not a problem for experienced users.

Great FREE open source password manager with similar functionalities to the paid competitors'

Used daily for less than 6 months

Review Source: Capterra

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

High quality Password manager

Used daily for less than 6 months
Reviewed 2021-10-06
Review Source: Capterra

Pros
For starters, it is Open source and free of charge. It has a Premium tier which is very affordable for 10 dollars a year and gives a lot of extra features. However, there is no need as the free tier is still a lot better than LastPass, which is overpriced and limiting. It does a good job of storing the passwords securely. There is also the iOS app which makes it easy for me to save the passwords on the vault in the app in a secure manner. There is also great integration with iOS and I was able to transfer my passwords easily from my previous password manager to this one.

Cons
I would be nitpicking if I said the interface could be more sharp but that's about it. There is hardly anything bad about this.
