Question

Best, secure & cloud syncing Password Manager. Any suggestions?

Using Avast Passwords now. But they don't have an export feature in Android. That's a big con.

My personal favorite is 1Password. Its apps are well-designed, and it can sync via Dropbox or its own cloud service. Has a tool to check to see if your passwords have been compromised, too, and can manage 2-factor authentication codes if you'd like.

Otherwise, its main competitor would be LastPass, which has similar features and a basic free version.

All day, 1Password for teams. I find it easy, powerful, and mostly seamless. It's complex stuff, but their support team is worldclass.

I’ve used LastPass and 1Password. 1Password wins by a mile. The UX is great and the functionality is improving all the time. Finally the company has a long history and is well respected in the security community.

Long time user of 1Password and swear by it. Not a fan of the new licensing, but that was because the previous model fit my feeds and I'm comfortable syncing to Dropbox, which I already pay for.

Not sure whether 1Password would work well for teams, though of course that's the market 1Password Teams is going after.

BTW, looks like FoundersCard members get 40% off 1Password Teams.

Ohh good find, thanks for sharing! Just remembered there’s also a 1Password for Teams discount in ProductHunt Founders Club: You can get 6 months of Teams for free (more details in this startup software discounts essay).

What about Keeper? So far I am very happy with that.

1Password is one of the subscriptions I'd cancel last if I had to because its so useful on a daily basis. The fact that it can handle 2FA and automatically copies an auth code into your clipboard upon login is so well designed.

I also like the fact that it's also used in my company, so I can use the same app with both personal and business accounts.

Previously, I was using licensed 1password. But when they changed the form of membership to monthly payment, I quit, i don't use 1password. I am using Bitwarden now and I am very satisfied.

We use 1 Password for teams for the 7 of us. It's functional and I'm ok with it, but I have to say, it's UI is fairly confusing. So much so that one of my colleagues HATES it.

(One example -- I have a password saved for a website. It has the password. It has the URL. But it doesn't have the username saved. For the life of my I can't find a way to add a "username" field to the already saved password. And I really searched high and low.)

I'm curious -- has anyone spent a good amount of time with both 1Password and LastPass and can comment on whether one is notably better than the other in terms of UI/UX?

That's the thing. Somehow when this particular password was saved, when you click the edit button, the "username" field never appears.

Likely when this entry was first created it was one of those login flows where it collects the username/email address on page 1, then the password on page 2. So 1Password doesn't think the site requires a username? Maddening.

Maybe I’m going to state the obvious, but why don’t you just re-create the entry then?

No worries, Yeah, that's obvious. And it's what I did. I created a new entry, copied over the old password, and added the login email address to the new entry.

But why couldn't I add a login ID to the original entry? Annoying and time-consuming.

Yeah I've been using KeePass for years, then switched to 1Password, it's awesome. It just works.

I've used Keeper, 1Password and LastPass, and unfortunately, LastPass has always come out on top. Keeper is in the process of fading away and 1Pass is missing a massive feature that LastPass has, which is linking a personal to a business account, that way you don't need to toggle between them. LastPass, though, is wrought with UI issues, but they don't affect you for the most part on a day to day basis.

I like LastPass. You can share account details with your team that automatically update when they are changed. It also resets your password when you first set it, so that generic passwords will be changed to more secure ones.

I have been using 1Password for several years on laptop and multiple devices and have never had any issues. It has a nice interface, is easy to use and has everything I need in a password manager. I am currently thinking about upgrading to the family version.

I have tried Dashlane and Lastpass which were ok but not compelling enough to change.

Dashlane is my favorite without a doubt. I used to use 1Password and LastPass but have since moved over fully to Dashlane.

I've recently switched from LastPass to 1Password and - as many others here in the thread - I'm not looking back. The interface is much nicer and handling multiple 1Password accounts (e.g. personal and company) is a breeze. The fact that it also handles two-factor-authentication means, that you don't have to compromise on security for shared accounts.

I have been using Lastpass for almost a month now. There are several options for increasing account security. I had some issues though with cloud syncing after resetting passwords. I still keep my insurance, bank and credit card details somewhere else (not on mobile apps).

1Password works well for teams to share passwords, I have used it in prior positions and is less buggy then LastPass on Mac

For teams, I prefer 1Password because it handles shared passwords well, syncs with the cloud, and has a decent chrome extension. I use LastPass personally because I like how seamlessly it handles passwords on mobile, which is only available with the premium version.

LastPass, and it goes beyond passwords to secure notes, bank info, etc.

For passwords I recommend 1Password.

It can also hold MFA codes to copy. If you prefer to get Push Notifications vs copying the code from 1P, Duo and Auth0 Guardian both support that.

I personally prefer to just use 1P. The advantage of 1Password for MFA is that you cheat. And you can log in without the phone since the TOTP code is in 1P.

The good thing about 1Password is that YOU and only YOU know the encryption key which means if data is hacked, it’s encrypted

I am using KeePass but it is not in the cloud (and that is why I use it).
If I was to use a cloud solution, I would probably go with Bitwarden.

1password there is nothing better and faster than 1password, and it also supports 2FA, so you can enable to use it as your OTP setup.

I'm a LastPass user and have been for a number of years. I find the UI very intuitive and haven't ever run into a single bug, sign-in problem, or recovery issue. The browser extensions all work very well, the Android app is extremely reliable, and I also use the secure password generator all the time. Overall, it's an extremely solid and reliable offering.

I have found 1password to be the best. Wide platform support, not too expensive, continuous improvement, has MFA

I've used 1Password, LastPass and BitWarden. I liked that BitWarden is open source, but I didn't love the UX as much as 1Password and LastPass. 1Pass and LastPass are almost identical in mind. I'm currently with 1Password and I really like its Chrome extension and especially the iPhone app.

I've been a longtime user of 1Password. Because I am mostly an apple product user, I use iCloud keychain as well but somehow I trust 1Password more from a security perspective. I have not done any research on this but it is just perception. (Can anyone tell me if it is more secure?). I love the different vaults and option to share the tool with family and/or my team. Strangely, it is also a tracker for me to see which websites/tools I've signed up for.

I've been using 1Password for years and love it (although the UI isn't the prettiest). Tried LastPass as well, nothing wrong with it, but just personal preference to go with 1P.
