    And now you will be able to receive a free backdoor version of LogMeIn with very new LastPass installation or update.

    That was actually the first option I was going to investigate. I assume you use it? Windows and Android? That would be my plans for it.

    Yes sir. Use it on Android, iOS, and Windows. No issues.

    I think when LastPass was acquired by LogMeIn was more of an issue, but would like to look at BitWarden.

    Played with Bitwarden for a bit tonight, find Lastpass is way more user friendly.

    OK, interesting to know. I find they all take a bit of getting used to.

    I actually use Roboform, habit, since way back, with LastPass as a backup ( :rolleyes: yes, I know that doubles my security exposure :eek::isay:).

    Migrated from LastPass to Bitwarden last month without any issues. It's just as effective (and cheaper) but, a bit like a new car, you need to find the controls!
