KeePass is a good local-file solution under Windows and possibly Mac’s.

Linux, not so much. KeePass under Linux uses a library that (stupidly!) logs the contents of the clipboard on auto-clear. If you copy your password to the clipboard, it gets logged _en clair_. Ewww.

I use KeePass to store passwords on Windows and Mac. I would never trust storing passwords on a third party server.

That’s useful to know.

I’ve used 1Password since 2014 or 2014, works seamlessly on MacOS/iOS.

In recent years they added support for Windows, Android, Linux, by building core client Electron app. (As most password apps like BitWarden also do.) It also has access in Web Browser, as well as Command Line tools.

It builds in support for the new Passkey standard, and has integrated masked email creation/management with Fastmail.


I save encrypted pdf scans of important documents in 1Password (1Gb cloud storage per person) too. Very convenient for travel, saving copies of insurance docs, drivers license, passport, etc…

If I didn’t need all the features and was willing to live with a somewhat clunkier interface, I’d choose Bitwarden, which is less expensive.

One of the things that’s kept me on LastPass for Windows is the auto-type function, which is reasonably flexible. I use it for filling out some standard web access forms that go beyond username and password - for instance, I have one autotype entry set up to prompt for a hostname and then fill out a web form that asks for connection method, username, password, hostname, and reason for connection. One click, type the host name when prompted, everything’s filled out in one shot.
