With the recent leak, I would love to start using different passwords at different services... I feel its time to use a Password manager...
Any recommendations? I am OK with a paid option - just need it to be reliable.
If I can have multiple users (atleast 2) with multiple client options (desktop/ ios/ android/ web) it will be ideal.
If there is a life-time option, I am open to that. I understand Lifetime has a bad rep - but I am willing to explore.
Thanks in advance!
You're not using password manager?
Lastpass, works very well for me.
Bitwarden, you can use it for free/$10 per year/selfhost.
If you're using Chrome on both mobile and desktop, log in to your Google Account on both devices and have them auto-save and sync passwords.
Same deal if you're in the Apple ecosystem, use Safari on both devices and sync via iCloud.
Alternatively, if you would like to manage passwords outside of a browser, use Keepass(Windows), KeepassXC(Mac), KeepassDroid(Android), Strongbox(iOS) and have them sync via WebDAV or GDrive.
I recommend Bitwarden
Bitwarden free + Firefox sync
Although some functions will be unavailable in Firefox private tabs. Kinda annoying but other than that, it's the best one out there.
I was using LastPass, had no issues until they limited one device usage for free accounts.
Now using Bitwarden. Happy with it, only issue being not able to enter details by clicking on input fields as LastPass does.
Bitwarden self-hosted (Docker) only accesable from 1 IP address. Your Bitwarden server doesn’t have to be available/online if you want to login somewhere (the browser plugin and/or mobile app caches everything locally) but it has to be if you want to save new credentials etc.
I use Dashlane (no ref link), it's a bit pricey but it's working great for me, especially the auto-fill function that just works on both Windows and Android. Fairly sure all serious password managers work great but that's the one I've been using for years.
Here's also a ref link if you want free premium for 6 months (for me too).
Program your own as a website and host it on a public server with a free hosting panel.
There is no need for thanks. Just share the drama here on LowEndTalk.
Bitwarden and KeePass as a backup for me
Bitwarden. Switched from LastPass as their app had issues often.
Keepassxc is pretty great
Definitely Bitwarden or alternatively Vaultwarden.
Sticky Password is good, works with Apple and Windows Computers. They have apps for Android and iOS both works great. They have lifetime license too. Shop around and you will see good deals.
Bitwarden is the best, their paid plan is also cheaper than self hosting, but self hosting is also very easy with vaultwarden
I don't really find online password managers trustworthy. That's why I like keepassxc

I use a piece of paper
Now that reminds me of when I was in Junior School where I'd write all of my friends' home phone numbers on a piece of paper, folded up really small to fit in my wallet
100% agree. Vaultwarden is what made me swap.
Unless you need to use multiple browser, the built in password manager is enough. Both chrome and Firefox support it. Along with the bookmarks sync. And it's free. I don't really see what's the use of 3rd party extension.
Not a full-fledged password manager for every scenario, but this tool is still quite useful if your main goal is avoiding leaks https://www.guerrillamail.com/tools
I use 3 simultaneously. I love it.

14 years using password managers.
What I use is:
Virtual Machine with Bitwarden on the home server (I am sure that no one will do anything on it), HTTPS traffic forwarded by Nginx on Oracle Cloud Instance. VM is connected to OCI through Wireguard of course.
VM specs: 2vCore, 4GB RAM
You can make it for free - get OCI Always Free Instance (2 Ampere Cores + 4GB RAM is enough) and use Vaultwarden.
Or get any cheap VPS with at least 2GB of RAM (for me, BW didn't work on LXC container!), install Docker and Docker-compose, and set up Bitwarden there.
Vaultwarden is easier to set up - nice to use on Aarch64 platform
