Thinking about using lastpass premium. It is starting to get hard to remember all of my passwords anymore. Are these companies trustworthy?

I use keepass. It's free and works great.

Good idea. Put all your eggs in one basket.

I believe Al Gore invented the password manager and invited everyone to give all their passwords to the government to keep safe. Not kidding, look it up. Thankfully that one small piece of tard pie never got eaten.

Keepass, its free, open source, and works good.

I would never use one.

instead of remembering many passwords, I remember one way to make a singlepassword

if Im logging into ar15, then my password would be 4 alpa numerics+site name+ plus a pin

something like this !Q@Warf8787

the only thing that changes is the site name for all my logins, and I abbreviate those

Been using Roboform for many years.

Not free, but cheap enough.
Easy to use, integrates well with browsers,
and it works for me.

The problem with this is due to radically different ideas about what a "good" password is on different services, you can't fit em all into a mold.

I just keep a text file on my desktop computer at home.  I might print it out some day and put it in my wallet.

DO NOT use the same password all over. That is a good way to get compromised when some goofus retailer or two bit forum doesn't encrypt them right and then gets hacked.

Lastpass is good and if you use/trust Kaspersky products the Kaspersky Password Manager is a pretty good one too.

That's what they want you to think.

I use LastPass. For those of you that are nervous or suspicious about internet-based password managers, there's a few things to make you feel better:

1. You create a "master password" to log into LastPass in the first place. That master password is never sent to LastPass. They only receive a hash value of your password. (If you're unfamiliar with the term "hash", it's basically a one-way scrambled version of the original plain-English value.)
2. Your LastPass "vault", where all of your passwords and secure notes are stored, is encrypted before it gets stored in LastPass's databases.

So...if Hacker Guy breaks into LastPass's systems, they will have access to:
1. The hash of your password, which is (theoretically, ignoring hashing collisions) not reversable into your plain-English password.
2. The AES-256-encrypted version of your vault.

so far it works on all the govt+civi sights I frequent-obvious I don't use that specific example

I just reset them if I forget. I am getting older and reset passwords often.
Link Posted: 8/23/2017 7:34:40 AM EST
Ok so it seems lastpass and keepass are the ones everyone here uses and likes. Which one offers more features? I don't mind paying 2 dollars a month for premium lastpass if it makes it a lot better.

One thing that gets me is the "Must have 1 special character, 1 upper, be between 8 and 16 characters..."

All that does is lower the total number of permutations with each stipulation (brute force can skip groups of possibilities with each stipulation). A password should be long and have a lot of "entropy." A word or a character counts nearly as the same as far as entropy because a word can be looked up in a wordlist/dictionary.

First post and all that. Looked at both Keepass and Lastpass. Would rather have the password database file local rather than in the cloud somewhere. There are some tradeoffs to keeping it local but for my use it works fine.

I use lastpass and not the premium version just free version. I use it on my computer and phone and love it. I think premium only adds sharing which I don't need.

Lastpass works great.  Very easy to use.

What is making you look at Premium vs the free version?

The free version of Lastpass did everything I need on my PC; I got Premium so I can use it on my phone, too.

ETA:  It looks like the free version now works across multiple platforms--I have no idea what Premium gets you now.

The 1gb encrypted storage sounds nice. I run Doxbox on my tablet and main PC and would like to use it to transfer saved games between them. I play a lot of might and magic.

IT pre-installs Keepass on our work computers.

It's multi-platform with multiple types of authentication. Cloud or local storage, browser plugin capable or standalone. Etc etc

I use it at home and work

I have been using KeePass for several years.
From what I understand, KeePass can be made more secure than LastPass but LastPass is probably easier to use.
I like KeePass because that's what I started using, but I'd also have no problem using LastPass if that's the one I started with....

I've run that on my iPhone for 5 or 6 years now. The new version even allows the fingerprint scanner to give you access. 

I figure I'm never without my phone, so I have all my passwords wherever I am, plus it's all backed up on my computers via iTunes and the iCloud - so if my phone goes down I don't lose it all.
