Quick question: What's the best / your preferred / most trustworthy password manager?

I'm running Firefox/Ubuntu(/GNU/Linux) (look at my stack, my stack is amazing (not)).

@zatnosk password store! it’s basically just a wrapper around git + gpg so it’s very portable. passwordstore.org/

@tao does this expect me to copy paste passwords from my terminal to the browser? Because that's not going to happen.

@zatnosk there’s a firefox extension (though it requires running a service on your machine with a bit of initial setup) github.com/passff/passff/blob/

@zatnosk though you can also pass the -c flag to automatically add the password to your clipboard.

@zatnosk I use keepassx, it is the easiest cross-platform one I have found, it also works on phones.

But I haven't really looked at password managers in a few years, there may be better ones around now.

@zatnosk At the moment I use LastPass. But I am seriously thinking about moving to LessPass. I am just stopped by my laziness for now...

I also use a GPG encrypted file (but with Emacs). That involves using the clipboard to paste passwords into the browser.

I am working on my pass phrase management this whole week.

Months back, I used to have Firefox default password manager then when moving profiles.

All these months, Password store is my primary pass phrase manager along time based OTP.

Password store is CLI but always use QT Pass for GUI.

Pass FF is browser extension for auto filling. Very handy.

I love Pass word store for simplity. Just pass phrase, username, optionally, URL and other names.

Password store can be tricky initially. It took some time to get going properly with Password store, PassFF, QT pass & setting Timed OTP.

But it is best what I think. Clean and simple. Not much metadata like created/modified/tag

There is Android client for Password store but buggy.

I don't use git but just rsync.

Since Password store built on GPG, you can count on high security.

I love GPG

The 2nd pass phrase manager which I test, recommend and set up for others is Keepass DX.

KeepassDX is packed with features. You can better UI/UX. Database can be sync to various clients.

KeepassDX has browser extension for auto filling.

Android client for Keepass DX is cool too. It can auto fill login credential for other apps.

I recently discovered KeeWeb.info it is simple HTML app to manage your Keepass data base.

@zatnosk
KeePass 2 - because it's FOSS and available for almost any platform...

@jellypotato eh, kinda. It doesn't generate passwords, but I didn't mention that either.

@zatnosk keepassxc on desktop, keepass2android on the phone. You can also use firefox's password manager with a master password.
