Since all of your data is fully encrypted before it ever leaves your device, only you have access to it. Not even the team at bitwarden can read your data, even if they wanted to. Your data is sealed with end-to-end aes-256 bit encryption, salted hashing, and pbkdf2 sha-256.

When Agilebits adopted the new policy of milking their lifetime users, I gave them the finger and set to find a replacement.

Although not an exact match (1Password is genuinely a great app with lots of features and great usability), Bitwarden is a great piece of software that is constantly updated but, more importantly, is open-source.

Heck, you also can have your own self-hosted Bitwarden cloud vault up and running in no time by simply copy & pasting the instructions on their knowledge base -- a beautiful approach :)

There are some catches that bug me though that I hope they address in the future:
1. You can't add or edit new items in off-line mode (leaving the syncing when back online to the app)
2. You can't attach images to a new entry: you need first to go ahead and create the entry, then "edit" it and only then attach your files.

AFAIK these are design choices... stoopid as fack if you ask me. I'd give it 5 stars otherwise.

Excellent software. Developer is actively engaged. I am a premium member. I migrated from 1Password.

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.
