I’ve been using 1Password for about 15 years. I’ve never seen a reason to give it up, and even if I did, there would need to be enough of a reason to make that migration worth it.

1Password with a free, lifetime account. It's the best password manager on the market, bar none.

Dashlane. Been using it for a few years now. A bit disappointed that they discontinued native apps for Mac and Windows.

Wonder why it is never mentioned here on HN.

Gorilla (manually backing up local file). Security through obscurity :)

Bitwarden. I went from LastPass to Enpass, to KeePass (XC) and finally settled on Bitwarden's hosted option.

I pay for a premium (or old family rate) account because $12/year is worth it for their offering.

One of the few software subscriptions I have, might switch to self hosted at some point in time.

A paper notebook near my computer. Sometimes I do photos of it and store them in other building. Sometimes that notebook consists smart moves like how to find useful setting.

BitWarden. Switched from LastPass because it basically got no updates for 5+ years and was a bit clunky.

I use https://www.passwordstore.org/ and ivy-pass for Emacs integration (copying and generating passwords). I use a private git repo for storage and syncing.

Perfectly happy with it.

KeepassXC. I store my database both locally and in several cloud storage providers incase the local copy gets destroyed.

1password 6, because i dont have to subscribe to a desktop software that doesn’t depend on any service (at least this is how i want my sensitive desktop apps to be).

My browser's password storage function for general web sites, forum logins, and such.

My memory or a shirt-pocket notebook of passwords for things that need better security.

The notebook is backed up by the simple expedient of using the copy machine and storing the copies in the safe. Old backups go to the shredder.

KeePassXC

I used to use KeePass, but switched to KeePassXC when I discovered that XC had all the features that I needed, but without using plugins. Setting up XC and maintaining it is much easier versus KeePass + 3 plugins.

Excel spreadsheet with a strong password.

It is shared with my partner. We both admin it, and have the same rights over it. Most sites allow copy/paste of credentials and for password generation there's a macro in the workbook that generates nice strong ones.

As it's Excel, its mostly cross platform so can be accessed from a anywhere, plus it's free to use.

Too lazy to switch off last pass, does the trick, but would go with bitwarden or 1pass starting from scratch

Bitwarden. Envious of 1password's integration with fastmail for disposable email addresses though.

Passpack: https://www.passpack.com/

I've been using this for years. Basic plan at $18/year is everything I need.
