    LastPass Alternatives

    When you're looking for a new password manager, there is a lot to consider. The most important thing is, of course, that your passwords are safe and secure. But it's also important to know how much help you want to keep them safe and secure. You also have to decide who you trust, if you don't trust anyone, you should look for a self-hosted alternative. LastPass is not a self-hosted solution, so all your passwords will be in the cloud. For some, that is probably the main reason to look for an alternative.

      1Password was Mac only for a long time, but for quite some time now, it has been multi-platform with support for most majors OSs like Windows, Linux and Chrome OS. The major drawback of 1Password is probably that there is no free version, so you have to pay for it. It may be worth it though, especially if you are a Mac / iOS person. It's a beautiful app and you won't miss any features from LastPass.

      You also have more flexibility when it comes to how you want to store your passwords. You can use 1passwords own servers or you can store the database on your computer or an online storage of your own choice. With LastPass, you have to store the passwords in their cloud.
      Almost everyone thinks 1Password is a great alternative to LastPass.

      Most people would say that Bitwarden is the best alternative to LastPass. It's fully open source and free for most people. You can even share passwords between two people, a feature that is usually not in the free plan in these types of apps. Bitwarden does offer some premium features especially geared towards business, such as setting up teams of more than two users and sharing passwords.

      Obviously, Bitwarden supports all basic features that LastPass has, like auto-fill passwords in browsers and apps, end-to-end encryption, tools to check for weak or compromised passwords, etc.

      But the main benefit of Bitwarden is that it's open source and that you have the option to either self-host the server on-premise or using their cloud.

      madmonk The best open source alternative to LastPass. Also, the UI is much clearer and the apps very snappy. It makes LastPass feel bloated and old.

    2. KeePass has been around forever and feels a bit old-school in its design. It's still in active development though, and if you are into classic UIs and love to fiddle around with plugins and settings, then KeePass may be for you. It might not be the password manager you would install on your mom's machine, though.

      Compared to LastPass, the main difference is that KeePass is open source and not a "cloud" solution. You can sync KeePass via a network, but you would have to store your password database in some file storage somewhere (for example, Dropbox or Nextcloud).

      You also need to keep in mind that for it to work on an iPhone for example, you might need to install a KeePass-compatible app. Again, it's a bit messy and not a simple plug-n-play system like LastPass, Bitwarden or 1Password.

      Open Source and saves password locally not in the cloud.

      JohnFastman KeePass is better than LastPass because: 1) it's open source, 2) it stores your passwords (and notes and other info) in a local database, rather than in the cloud. So it's up to you if you want to sync it using the service of your choice. Together with the KeeFox plugin for Firefox, KeePass is a superb LastPass replacement. Works great on Win and Linux; for Mac try MacPass, which is compatible with KeePass.

    3. KeePassXC is a fork of KeePassX (which itself is a fork of KeePass) and is compatible with the KeePass database (KDBX). It was originally built because KeePass was for Windows only, so KeePassXC was built for Linux (and Unix), Mac and Windows natively and uses Qt instead of WPF (a Windows only framework) and C# . The UI feels more modern than KeePass; otherwise, they are kind of similar. One major difference between KeePass and KeePassXC is that it does not have support for plugins, so keep that in mind.

      For a novice, all these KeePass clones can appear a bit messy and, honestly, if you do not care about trying to figure out what is best for you, you should probably just go with Bitwarden or 1Password if you want to replace LastPass.
      KeePassXC vs LastPass opinions
      Almost everyone thinks KeePassXC is a great alternative to LastPass.
      JohnFastman Unlike Lastpass, KeepassXC is open-source (more trustworthy) and stores your password database locally. It's also based on a broadly supported format, is compatible with 2FA (e.g. a keyfile) and has good browser plugin integration. Lastpass doesn't encrypt your URLs and is based in the US.

      Lastpass's centralized cloud is a target for hackers looking to gain access to a large number of passwords at once (there have been security breaches before, and its only a matter of time until someone gains access). With KeePassXC, you get to choose whether your passwords are stored on the cloud or not. The entire database is encrypted instead of specific fields. Plus KeePassXC is open source.

    4. Authy is a simple way to manage two-factor authentication accounts. Authy supports Gmail, Dropbox, LastPass and thousands of other sites.
    5. As you can tell by the name of this app it's Android only. So if you are looking for a cross-platform solution you can stop looking here. But remember as with all "KeePass" apps they share the same database format. So you can use KeePassXC for example on your computer and then use Keepass2Android on your phone.

      Not much else to say about these apps. If you go the KeePass route, this is one of the best clients for Android.
      Almost everyone thinks Keepass2Android is a great alternative to LastPass.

      Dashlane is probably most similar to LastPass in terms of being proprietary software that keeps your password in the cloud. The pricing is also very similar. What differences it is mainly UI and UX. Dashlane is a bit more accessible and clean and probably a bit less daunting for new users.

      In terms of number of features, LastPass probably wins, but in general, they are very similar.

      So many more functionalities. And a MUCH better record of security history.

    6. Another KeePass based app, but this time on the web. Same pros and cons as the other KeePass based solutions. You can use the same database for a myriad of apps and choose what suits you best.

    7. Enpass is similar to Keepass, but it's not open source and it's not free (though it has a free plan, it is very limited). And, depending on if you see it as a pro or a con, Enpass does not provide the service to store your password database in the cloud. If you want to sync your passwords between devices, you have to use an online storage service of your choice.

      The main reasons to choose Enpass over KeePass if you want an offline password manager are that it looks good and is less complicated to set up.
      Enpass vs LastPass opinions
      Almost everyone thinks Enpass is a great alternative to LastPass.
      JohnFastman Enpass is better than Lastpass because they don't store your data in the cloud (choice is yours how to sync/store it). But they use a proprietary format, they're not open sourced and they don't allow using keyfiles for added security. Using KeepassXC + PassIFox or PassIChrome gives you all of this, and is a better, free, open source choice.

      Good cross platform support, browser extensions, not forced to store your password vault data 'in the cloud' if you don't want to, support for self-hosted vault sharing options such as owncloud.
