Free "account" gives you "zero knowledge encryption" ?! What's that ? Premium "account" ($10/year)gives you "advanced 2FA encryption" ?! and what is that ? In any case, any "account" even free, is not acceptable.

After 4.5+ years, we continue to use the free edition of Bitwarden daily on Mac & iOS. I trust the security, as much as is prudent in these days. I used 1Password until the (steep) subscription model priced me out. Yet, in the case of the free use of Bitwarden – I strongly feel that you get more than you pay for.

Absolutely awesome. It would be even better, if it would import attachments from 1Password, too.

Bitwarden is currently not compatible with the latest version of Safari. Attempting to open a website from the extension either causes the extension to crash or log out. The developer is aware of this bug, but has been unable to resolve it for over 30 days. Until this has been resolved, I cannot recommend using this software. I was previously by go-to password manager.

This software is not currently working with the latest version of Safari. It has not worked for over a month. This is a bug known to the developer, but they say they are having trouble finding a solution. Before Safari was updated, the software worked flawlessly and was my go-to password manager. The current bug does not allow opening a website from the extension. If you do, the extension either crashes or it logs out. Until this bug has been resolved, I cannot recommend using Bitwarden.

This software doesn't allow you to create standalone vaults for offline editing, you have to agree to copy your password data to an unknown entity somewhere (the Bitwarden cloud). The described alternative to this is to host Bitwarden cloud on your own server. Despite being described as easy to set up your own cloud using 'docker' this software is not for people who have no desire to do anything but have a useable app from the get-go. It is unusable until this is addressed.

I've been a paying user of LastPass for many years. A series of UI glitches and long periods without updating the binary installers made me revisit my choice of password manager. The company that bought Lastpass out several years ago also has a terrible reputation, though personally that didn't impact me... Testing Bitwarden was a breeze. Import of all my data was effortless, and the better UI made me reorganise my passwords. The iOS version is just as feature rich as LastPass, and works more quickly. The sharing system (sharing with my partner), is more cleanly designed than the families interface of LastPass. The desktop app is not native (neither was Lastpass anymore), but most of my time is spent in the browser extension anyway, which is very cleanly designed, much nicer than LP. Only thing I miss is the hard-copy two-factor authentication method, but everything else more than makes up for it. Totally excellent and well worth paying for (though not necessary as most functions are free, paying is really to support such a great product, you do get a few extras).

"Don't want to use the Bitwarden cloud? You don't have to. With Docker you can easily host Bitwarden's entire infrastructure stack on the platform of your choice." This was a huge reason for me to dump 1Password.

The developer continually improve this free open-source solution to password management. The upgrade to the Premium version is extremely reasonable (currently, $10), unlike the “other 1passapple” product. Strongly recommended as an alternative.

This is my go-to app on my Mac, PC at work, and my iPhone. I love how it is integrated with the phone and how easily and it works on both laptops. It has been totally dependable, after I quit using One Pass. For all my uses, it is still free. Awesome software.

Moved to Bitwarden from 1Password due to 1Password subscription cost as well as appeal of open source. Very happy even though Bitwarden's dev team is far smaller than 1Password. Great so far!

This app has been totally reliable. The iOS version is such a delight now that I can access it in other apps. I'm very comfortable using their open source software that doesn't place any unencrypted data on any server. This app doesn't have the adversting of 1 Password and Last Pass, but it is utterly reliable and has all the essential functionality. It is also frequently updates, so i'm never worried I won't be able to use it following a system update. Great app.
