I had 8 months left from LP Premium, but I gave up, exported everything to Bitwarden and deleted LP for good. Bitwarden works much much better on Android… exceptionally well. Never miss a form field. Dark Mode, always getting updates.. unlike LP for Android that rarely gets updates or bugs fixes.

YUKI93, 2 hours agoSome people prefer convenience, so they don’t want to remember all the passwords.The point of password managers is actually security. Coz how else are you going to remember full ASCII, I don’t know 16 characters long passwords for hundreds of websites? The fact they are 3rd party is entirely irrelevant. Bitwarden is open source and was audited on server side by 3rd party organizations. It’s design also ensures only user has access to the vault. And if that’s not enough and you don’t trust 3rd party hosting, you can either run it fully offline or by setting up your own server and host the vault yourself. There is just no reason to distrust Bitwarden. It has proven itself many times.

Be smart when creating password manager account, use email and password that never been used anywhere, use authenticator. Everything has its own risks and it’s about managing and minimizing the risks.

You will be surprise by checking every app you have using ClassyShark3xodus.

My “tracker favorite” was Xiaomi Mi Home with 8=606classes trackers, and Viber with 12 trackers and over 1000 classes.

Even Bitwarden from the Play Strore has 2 or 3, so I downloaded a tracker-free version from the F-droid market,

also you can block trackers by using TrackerControl installed from the latter.

Google analytics and appsflyer are totally safe

These apps are used to track user behavior and send the data anonymously

I don’t know about the others

LastPass is a joke. Awful security, UI and now less features for freemium users.

I personally use iCloud Keychain. Also recommend Bitwarden.

Wow, you must have such godly memory to remember all your passwords of various combinations and formats, like a 20-character PW of alphanumeric Upper and lower case, numbers, special characters etc. Unless you use password123456 on all your accounts.

Ps. Bitwarden has an offline function and Google pw manager is an online one as well.

These things are safer than the default that is present on browsers.

“”password manager app””

Just that name should be enough to NOT TRUST it… like how the F you can trust all your private account that have all your data and probably money to some random app that is connected to internet…

You have brain right? you can remember names of people, songs and movie titles but you cant remember passwords? Really?

zodiacfml, 13 hours agonow you have Lastpass and Google tracking you. I don’t get it how this company survives … moreIt’s not cross platform. I don’t use Chrome.

I never trust any password manager software. So I had to develop my own tiny app for this purpose. Maybe it’s not so powerful but I know what does and what it does not.

The info on how to disable it is wrong. You have to open your profile/vault in a web browser (can be on your PC). Go to Account Settings, enable Show Advanced Settings, scroll down to Privacy and uncheck “Send anonymous error reporting data to help improve LastPass”.
