Never heard of it. But thanks to Grinler's recommendation I use an open source manager KeePass Password Safe.

More info here: http://keepass.info/

I have it synced between my desktop, laptop, tablet and phone.

I'm currently using KeePass :thumbup2:

 

Although, the reason why I want to switch it because:

-It's apps are not made by KeePass so you cannot guarantee security

-It's annoying to have to plug in and unplug a USB stick (Dashlane has 2 factor authentication via Google Authenticator)

Just a question. And you can guarantee security with Dashlane how? As compared to the inability to do so as you say with KeePass?

I ask so that I can understand that comment you made. I'm not disagreeing or arguing. I am curious how you came up with that information.

The apps for Dashlane are made by Dashlane while KeePass apps are not made by KeePass.

Me personally, I would rather trust open source than a private for profit company who's bottom line is their main focus.

I use the LastPass extension on Firefox to keep track of commonly used passwords. I spend a lot of time online and it gets ridiculous to remember every single login, so it's auto feature gets my vote.  :thumbsup:  It doesn't seem to have an offline vault, which disappoints me, so I've been using a version of KeePass as one. I should probably get the most recent version soon. I've tried the KeePass Firefox plugin and it never worked for me. <_<

Has your vault ever been breached? I'm still concerned about how they got breached once.

Are you aware of the LastPass breach that happened a while ago? Do you know what steps they took to prevent further breaches?

Deleted- I just looked it up and they partnered with a site called PwnedList to create LastPass Sentry to detect future breaches. You do a thing call a Security Challenge in your vault to check how strong/weak your passwords are, even your master password. 

 

I don't think I had a vault at the time? Maybe got one right after? So my security check was clean but I'm definitely going keep an eye on it and change some passwords.

Yes, but I admit that I have not really use it on my Windows machine yet as I mainly use my Macs. I do have a license for it for my Windows computers, but just have not really used it much on them.
