      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.

    1. 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.

      it's opensource, it runs locally and it has one of the strongest encryption database for the password file

    2. 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.

      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.

    3. 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.
    4. 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.
      KeeWeb vs LastPass opinions
      Almost everyone thinks KeeWeb is a great alternative to LastPass.
      Cross platform and self contained (no external APIs or server dependencies)

      One of the main competitors to Keepass2Android. It feels a bit outdated, but looking at their GitHub repository, it's still in development. And if you like the "old school Android look and feel," please give it a shot.
      Almost everyone thinks KeePassDroid is a great alternative to LastPass.
    5. Master Password is a bit different from other password managers. It actually doesn't store your passwords anywhere; instead, it uses an algorithm based on the site you are viewing. Master Password may suit some people that really don't want their passwords stored ANYWHERE. It can be a bit messy, but it's a fun idea and it's worth a shot.
      Spectre vs LastPass opinions
      Most users think Spectre is a great alternative to LastPass.
      ChuckDee68 It is a different app, as it is a password generator, not a password manager.

      InsaneFromEarth Passwords can never be lost because of unique password generation algorithm, just remember that one master password.

      JohnFastman Genius invention. Doesn't store your passwords anywhere; it generates them everytime you put in the same Master password and username/website domain. Therefore, your password database can't be hacked - it doesn't exist. However, it's harder to change passwords for accounts because you have to use the iteration feature. Test it to see if it suits your needs. Thumbs up for open source also. Otherwise, ditch LastPass and go for KeePass.

    6. Buttercup uses a delta-system to manage archive changes and save conflicts. The archive, upon saving, is encrypted with AES 256bit to ensure the security of your credentials.

      LessPass is an open source password manager. Instead of syncing a database of passwords, it generates them locally every time you put in a domain name, login and master password. There is no central database for hackers to break into.

      JohnFastman LessPass is an alternative to LastPass but is more similar to Master Password in its approach. It doesn't save or "remember" your passwords in any way. It's a browser plugin that you enter a domain, login and master password into. It then uses an algorithm to generate a long password you can use for a website of your choice. Every time you enter the same details, you get the same password. Read their website for an honest lowdown on the pros and cons of this approach. It might be right for you!

      ChuckDee68 One of the things that lastpass does is manage your passwords. This just generates passwords by making a hash of a provided phrase and the site. It's also not as secure as it purports to be.
