After some very valid criticism of the previous poll, I have decided to try again. I have just re-read every post in the old thread and noted all the password managers mentioned in the comments. As I can only have ten possible responses I don't want "Other" or "None of the above"
I have also checked a lot of reviews from the likes of Tech Radar, PC World, PC Magazine, Tom's Guide, CNET and many others.
Once posted, I can not edit the question or the possible responses!
I have opted to not show the poll until you have voted because I don't want you to be influenced before voting!

I use the chrome built in one. Probably shouldn’t, but who really cares? (Other than me, when all my passwords are compromised)

I have been using Keypass for over 2 years and have had no problems with it, Granted, it's from Source Forge but they do keep up with patches and the best thing about it is that it's free. There is one thing I don't like about it and I'm going to recommend that they fix it, unless you don't care how your folders are. The problem has to do with putting your folders in an alphabetized format, it can do that now, but it takes forever to get it the way you want. Other than that, it works fine.

Isn't Source Forge just a file-hosting website? I don't think they own or write any software.

I've purchased the family plans for both LastPass and Bitwarden. I'm torn between the two. I've been alternating back and forth between using them and I much prefer LastPass. Family sharing in Lastpass is vastly superior and easier to use. Bitwarden does family sharing in a clunky and disjointed fashion. Family sharing of some sites is especially important to us. My wife is not technical at all and has learned to effectively use Lastpass over the last 12 years. I've not even shown her how Bitwarden works yet, and I know what her response will be.

I'm extremely disappointed that Lastpass was breached and how they are handling it. I'm also disappointed to learn that not all my LastPass vault is encrypted. Only Logons, Passwords, and Secure Notes are encrypted. Bitwarden uses end to end encryption. LastPass needs to make encryption end to end and needs to implement employee security. A password manager must have my trust.

Anyway, I like that I can change my vote. I've changed my passwords on all my financial sites, and I have a secure Master Password, so the breach doesn't really affect me. After all, the whole reason for Zero Knowledge Architecture in all password managers is in case of a breach. I'm going back and forth using LastPass and Bitwarden. My vote for now is still LastPass.

I'm trying to remember why I abandoned Roboform, maybe when I had to pay, reviews say it is still the best at filling webforms.

I am using Bitdefender at present, but am sorely tempted to try Dashlane and 1Password. My vault data cannot be decrypted UNLESS someone discovers my Master Password. I now believe that all password managers are secure and it is our web browsers that might leak our master passwords.

LastPass is just as secure as any competitor, in that it uses open-source, AES-256 encryption.

I checked my password on Steve Gibson's site and it would take hackers billions of years to guess, so that is not the vulnerability that bothers me.


CONCLUSION stay with LastPass

We use KeePass. It's not perfect, and there are some enhancements I'd like to see. Administration requires at least a little technical proficiency to get the most from the app.
That said, it's also quite flexible, highly functional, extensible, and has powerful search capability.
We also like that it's open-source with useful extensions available, actively maintained, and locally installed (i.e., not cloud-based). Oh - and as mentioned above, it's free.

If you have a good, strong Master Password, you have nothing to worry about. All password managers use the same Zero Knowledge Architecture and AES 256-bit encryption. They're all designed to be safe if ever breached. Quite frankly I've looked around and I haven't found any others that I like as much as my LastPass.

I never paid attention to who made Keypass or if I did know I had forgotten. But I must say that he keeps his software up to date and the way I figure it, he must know something about security because if you don't have the master password you just can't get in it.

I use a spreadsheet that is password protected.
If that works for you, then good.

What you could do similar to that is put all your passwords in a text file and archive it in a password protected RAR, ZIP or 7z.
Text files are very small and fast and easy to find anything with Ctrl+F.

I use a spreadsheet that is password protected.
Be very careful here! We used to use a very sophisticated Excel workbook (e.g., with hidden worksheets, built-in automated procedures, multiple "tag" columns, password generator) until a friend showed me how easy it was to break the password - it took about 30 seconds. Now we use KeePass, which has superior functionality to what we'd built internally and is much more secure.

I'm using StickyPassword...truthfully, only because Ashampoo was offering a lifetime membership for $29USD (or so) and I figured I wasn't mortgaging the farm to try it out. I don't have any issues with it; it imported accounts from my previous password manager without issues; you can install it on multiple computers and smartphones. Their technical support is very responsive. I used RoboForm in the past; it was OK until they changed to their subscription model.

Let's face it, it really doesn't matter what you use for your passwords, even a piece of paper for that matter. What really matters is that the passwords that you are using cannot be compromised, that's the main point. I honestly believe in special characters no matter what they are and yet some sites still don't allow the use of special characters and if they are used, they limit you to specific characters. I believe ALL special characters should be used and as many times as you wish. At some point in time someone will compromise a password and the only choice you have is to change that password and to see if anyone has purchased anything from them using your password. This may be off topic but, I believe it's more relevant than what you use to store your passwords. The best method, I believe, would be to use a USB stick and put it only where you know it is.

Well, I think you are mistaken. Go to Steve Gibson's website to see which passwords are hardest to crack, you'd be surprised.
