In this video Michael Tunnell and I discuss Bitwarden and why you should be using it as your password manager. We compare it to competitors like LastPass and detail why Bitwarden reigns supreme. Part 2 is available here: https://youtu.be/5t22YIeUTKE
If you forget to create a login after using the password generator and loose your password in your clipboard, you have three options.
- Use Plasma and find it in your clipboard history (which you
shouldclear regularly if your copying passwords)
- Go into the Bitwarden password generator and choose Password History to see a list of previously generated passwords.
- Do a password recovery on your account.
Also, if you go into Settings → Options there is a setting to clear the clipboard for a set amount of time. I find that useful on the mobile app.
Keep up the great work!!!
I started using Bitwarden about 3/4 weeks ago and I love it. I used to use 1Password but Bitwarden does everything 1Password did for free.
Saying that I did sign up for the Premium service ($10 per year? Seriously? I paid 4 times that for 1Password) to support the project and hopefully see it’s continued operation for years to come.
Only thing I haven’t found yet is the ability to use it as an OTP provider for accounts that can use 2FA, but I always have Authy for that.
Moved to Bitwarden a year back form LastPass. On the premium plan and loving it so far.
The one feature I am hoping to have in the future is to enable password protestion for secure notes as an added layer of protection.
Hey @Sar actually it does support 2FA. You will need to use the android app for this. After adding a new login, go to the edit section for that login and you will be presented with the 2FA column.
My Authy now only holds my 2FA key for bitwarden
Ooh, happy days, I’ll have to take a closer look at the android app then, which I have installed, but haven’t had a great dig around in as yet
Not quite as straightforward or as obvious as 1Password, but once you know how it can be done for other logins without issue
I can now dump 1Password completely, as that’s the only thing I was using it for, was a 2FA login for one of my frequent logins
Could this be tagged to show up in the Tutorials section? This is one of my steps to de-Googling my life. Thanks for taking the time to make and post the videos!
Okay, you guys got me. I’m switching over. I’ve heard the name here and there and now I’m hooked.
Aside from the reasons so eloquently mentioned by you guys, I have my own bone to pick with LastPass – Recently I got a Paypal notification telling me that my automatic payment to LastPass had just gone through. That’s odd, thought me, I don’t remember setting up any automatic payments with them as I generally shy away from such things. I did, however, throw them some bones about 5 years ago. Yup, turns out I’ve been automatically paying them for their “premium” service for 5 years. I don’t remember consenting to anything like that, and oddly, I don’t know why I didn’t catch a Paypal mention earlier on. Needless to say I’m less than pleased. I stopped the recurring payments and am still fuming a bit about it. So…adios LastPass, hola Bit Warden!
Thanks for the in depth heads up. Super useful.
I just want to add to this thread that I recently switched from Dashlane to Bitwarden after hearing about it through the community and watching Part 1 and 2 that you guy collaborated. Bitwarden has been such a treat to use! What a fantastic open source password manager with such a robust feature set.
Thank you guys!
