Password managers

Other Apple Chat

Hello all,
The FBI case here with Apple has given me pause to do some thinking about security. Right now I use lastpass to manage my passwords. What I like about it is I pay $12 yearly and I have access to my passwords on any platform. This is due to the way lastpass stores your vault. They use a very stongly encrypted server so that when you update a password it is updated on all your devices at once. I have been thinking of switching over to One Password because they let you store your vault where you want it. Whether that be on Dropbox or keeping it on your computer and syncing it via WIFI. This gives one more control over the security of their vault. I am currently a Windows user and I noticed that One Password is not quite as accessible on Windows as it is on iOS. What are others thoughts on this? I am curious because I don't think most people realize just how much we keep on our phones. This is especially true for those of us who are blind or visually impaired. These devices have really made it possible for us to keep track of everything from our banking to our health in a very accessible way.

Hi. One password is very accessible on IOs a Mac if you ever go for one, Windows I can't say for sure. Anyway the only tricky thing is one password has somany vaults, extentions, mini browser, I get confused as to how things are stored. I really need to be taught by someone who can help. sorry I'm not more help, I'm not discrediting 1password at all, I think you can generate passwords that are from the app itself.
