- by Firefox user 15902071, 3 months agoRated 5 out of 5It is not without its issues. However, it is also by far the most fully featured solution out there so it has more functions and features to handle than any other solution out there. Everything else has taken away options like self-hosting whereas BitWarden not only has their hosting option but the local hosting plus the docker you need to set up a self hosting cloud ‘server’. Also 100% open source unlike others so you can fully validate everything and not take any company’s word for it nor worry about an organization being acquired and ransacking your password manager. All this and support is great, the community is more active than any other, and the cost is lower than other solutions. AND it is very much cheaper if looking for basic password manager and less than $15/year for fully featured version. Price only goes up if getting family but even then, $40 for 6 people annually is less than competitors.
Plus, its clients and extensions are fully functional. Some others have very good ones but when you get into the heavy lifting like exporting, you find you need Windows or Mac Client and and Web Client, Extension, or Linux client will not do.
The only other one I can recommend is 1Password. I’ll be honest that if you have a family that needs a password manager that is for the family and no one in the family has technical skills, 1Password is the simplest and easiest. Far better than not having anything. Trade off is not having all the other features that BitWarden has and you are forced to store your vault with them, cannot host your own.
That is my one disclaimer but I highly recommend BitWarden and just give yourself that extra hour it will take to get used to everything. You could easily use functionality later that if you went the easier route, you would have missed out on.
Five stars all day. Coming from someone that has worked with cybersecurity for many years and worked with almost every password manager out there. If not, open source for full verification and allows for self hosting so you know that not even the company can access your data, then you can never truly know. Major organizations have had court orders for information that they supposedly could not access and had the independent certifications but not open source and some of them could provide information that they said they could not decrypt.
That is why I cannot stress enough why BitWarden deserves its five stars and why you really need to know your data is truly secure.
- by Kael, 3 months agoRated 5 out of 5I started using this a couple years ago for the company I was working for because the ethos was right - open source core, simple, usable, reasonably priced and not too intrusive.
It has only gotten better since, and I'm happy to be a premium subscriber. Highly recommended.
- by Cicilia Ve, 3 months agoRated 5 out of 5I do recommend Bitwarden. By using it as a free I think it's enough but upgrade it would be a game-changer. I find no bugs or problems, it's satisfying. Maybe you could make it to stick on the top and click on it again to turn it off so when we hover over the different tabs it doesn't automatically disappear. Just suggestion (:
Keep improving your feature and security ^^
- by SB, 3 months agoRated 5 out of 5This is hands down one of the best password managers that I have ever used. It has saved me on a regular basis! It's super easy to use, secure, and loads up on any distro. I highly recommend it to ANYONE, on ANY system!!!
- by Cyphical, 3 months agoRated 5 out of 5Switching from Lastpass because they ruined the free tier. Bitwarden is so much better. Better interface, better security features, open source, and free. Also, more features!
Best password manager.
