Lastpass Alternative: what do you choose?

edited October 2015 in Reviews

hey guys,

what do you choose for alternative since Lastpass was sold themself for a bad reputation Logmein? (follow the link if you want some funs when reading the comments)

I write an article to help people know some names to consider jumping out of the ship before too late. So I want to ask you guys if knowing another name with good service, affordable price, rich features, good security to add to my list: Lastpass Alternative: Top 12 free, open source, premium password management (no ads)

    Yeah, just take a look at it. Very awesome! How can I miss a very good one like that :) Will add it to my list.

    What's with everyone jumping ship from LastPass so quickly? LogMeIn has never been untrustworthy when it comes to security or anything like that; they've just made some questionable price hikes.

    In this case they've said LastPass's business model won't be changing and the existing team will stay in place. Maybe that'll turn out to be true or maybe it won't, but either way there's no reason to start panicking until and unless we start seeing actual negative changes.

  • is there any alterbative with autosync between devices and selfhost?

  • DashLane, it just works and has pretty good ui. Got a sweet discount when i purchased for 5 years.

    Basically 1Password and KeePass should support this as you control how the files get synced.

    I've got a KeePass database in my Dropbox which I can access from all my devices (Windows, Linux, Android). It works perfectly fine.

    I recommend Prometeus, the best provider ever!

    Will owncloud work for database storage? i prefer to store my password in my own server.

  • @robohost said:

    I believe you can store the database using multitude of ways including webdav and sftp.
    So i guess owncloud is possible.

    Here's a nice comparison table: http://notlastpass.rockettech.net/

    I prefer KeepassX myself, old school.

  • I've had database version conflict with owncloud and I don't why.

    But the same happened with dropbox earlier this year, but with text files.

    So, yeah, it could work, just don't save changes from multiple locations.

    I find I write to my keepassx database every day so there's a greater possibility of version conflict.

  • WilliamWilliam Member, Provider

    I do like lastpass (thanks @Fusl ) but they don't allow you to export your data in a useful format (like XML or CSV) (IIRC) so i'm pretty afraid of what happens when they go bankrupt - The code is client side so there could be (an illegal) clone but that does not help if you don't have the DB itself in a raw format stored somewhere. I would feel much better if they had an option to download the DB or export it to a cloud service (Gdrive, OneDrive, S3, whatever).

    but its lifetime (though when a new (major) version comes out you have to pay for it again), but using your license is lifetime for current version you are at.

    sorry didn't had a chance to look at keepass, though i considered it before.

  • I moved to 1Password a while back.

    It is not as slick as LastPass, as you have to do a keystroke to auto-fill. But otherwise, it's been working fine on Mac, Windows, and iOS. I use Dropbox sync.

    You're mistaken. It can export to csv, which can be imported by keepass

  • Enpass looks like a nice alternative to KeePass. Might be worth testing it.

    Lastpass is client side JS; you can see the code just fine.

    Good, one less point on my list, now i just need to get it to actually set the interface language to English and not based on my IP to German...

  • @William said:

    You can set that on first launch. It doesn't do IP detection.

    I'd worry more about them being owned by LogMeIn at this state.

    I did that - It still is German, might be cached somewhere along the way though.

    Not sure what you mean. LastPass has no vendor lockin with data and your free to take it.

  • @4n0nx said:

    Do you really trust your browser to store things securely? Admittedly all the top dogs do this a lot better than they used to but that hasn't always been the case (search for "browser passwords plain text").

    Do any of them gate access to the passwords well? Any multi-factor authentication? You have to be daft to leave a machine logged in and unlocked, but it you accidentally do then the stored credentials are anyone's to use if they gain access to said machine. There is similar danger with having a separate site or application like keepass (you still have the credentials and the clients accessible on the same machine) but things being that little bit less automatic offers a small amount of safety net.

    Can your browser password store be easily used cross platform?I use a mix of Chrome, Firefox, IE and Chromium on WIndows (desktop), Android and Windows Phone? Even if you don't use more than one platform now what happens if you decide to switch later, can you export your credentials store between them or do you have to reenter everything?

    For many people their browser's password store is perfectly sufficient, but their are many reasons why you might want something else.

  • @MeAtExampleDotCom so it is useless after all! :p

    (if you only use FF on all platforms)
