Bitwarden is the easiest and safest way to store all of your logins and passwords while conveniently keeping them synced between all of your devices. The Bitwarden app extension allows you to quickly log into any website through Safari or Chrome and is supported by hundreds of other popular apps.
Password theft is a serious problem. The websites and apps that you use are under attack every day. Security breaches occur and your passwords are stolen. When you reuse the same passwords across apps and websites hackers can easily access your email, bank, and other important accounts.
Security experts recommend that you use a different, randomly generated password for every account that you create. But how do you manage all those passwords? Bitwarden makes it easy for you to create, store, and access your passwords.
Bitwarden stores all of your logins in an encrypted vault that syncs across all of your devices. Since it's fully encrypted before it ever leaves your device, only you have access to your data. Not even the team at Bitwarden can read your data, even if we wanted to. Your data is sealed with AES-256 bit encryption, salted hashing, and PBKDF2 SHA-256.
Bitwarden is 100% open source software. The source code for Bitwarden is hosted on GitHub and everyone is free to review, audit, and contribute to the Bitwarden codebase.

Dumped LastPass for Bitwarden
A problem lead me to believe that my Lastpass account was breached, and i was significantly worried to say the least. I was a paid premium user and I could not get a response for almost 3 days. To top it off, it was what i interpret as a “whatever” type response. I was stunned.
If you are currently using this type of service, you know there is way too much personal info stored for that kind of ****** service.
Researched more apps than i care to mention and went with BW. From account creation, to explaining the steps to move all my data, to its first couple days of hard use... its been virtually flawless. I went with the paid, because frankly the dev deserves it, but its not something you are forced to do by any means. I have tested the Web Vault, MacOS Desktop, and iOS so far - simplistic, fast, accurate.....very pleased with all. Feel confident if you are looking for alternatives, Bitwarden rocks ;).
Solid Password App
Does nearly everything one would need. 3rd party certification puts it next to 1Password and others.
Open source. Features & improvements added occasionally.
Free if you need basic password management & sync.
For most people, it’s about $10-22 annually if you need more features such as premium support or secure sharing for family / team.
Working with “Organizations” & “Collections” is key to sharing encrypted records.
It’s available on basically any platform, all of which sync, and if all else fails you can login via web browser.
Good interaction with OS and browsers, FaceID & TouchID. Clears clipboard after 30 sec (or whatever threshold you set).
Still hoping for a “local backup” option, so an encrypted backup file can be kept, just in case the main cloud database becomes corrupt.
Biggest bug I’ve seen (as of April 2019) is some of the search functions are intermittently buggy in Safari (both the extension and even logged into web vault). It’s a minor issue as search works fine in iOS and MacOS X apps. Also works great in Brave Browser (Chrome).
May also be related to the fact that Safari extensions library is very slow to approve updates (an Apple delay), so Safari extension is always a couple months behind.
Aug 2019 also saw a bug regarding auto-syncing new items. Some users reported auto-sync to cloud was not initiating as it had before, and you had to manually sync each time you made a change. I’m hoping this gets resolved.
Runs with the big dogs
For a one man show, this app and system overall has had near parity with at least LastPass (the good parts of LastPass) since the beginning. In a rare feat these days, updates make the app better, not worse. This had iOS 12 password filling within 3 days, after a discussion with users on the feature request forum on how it should look and work. The premium subscription is a no-brainer but you can absolutely get by without it and not miss any basic functionality you’d expect from a password manager. My bug reports are always responded to almost immediately, if only to tell me it’s a duplicate of another bug he’s already working on or that I’m doing it wrong. Try getting that out of LastPass (you won’t, which is why I moved here).
