    BTW, is it true that extensions that password managers offer do not communicate directly with their desktop apps? And are there any password managers that don't store the password database in the cloud? I'm still trying to find a good password manager, but some things are bugging me.

    You probably mean Enpass, but does this mean that the browser extension uses this local database? Because it seems that with all other extension based password managers you first have to sign in, and then they will retrieve your passwords from the cloud, it just feels weird. I still don't understand why on earth none of the big browsers have implemented a robust password manager, it's quite weird.

    Yes, I meant Enpass. Yes it is local but you can sync it, although I never have.

    Just found out RoboForm version 8.5.5.5. doesn't work with Windows XP. Would have been nice knowing that before I updated RoboForm. Be that as it may, are any Windows XP users currently using a Password Manager? If so, I would appreciate knowing which one. I know I should ditch the Windows XP computer; I primarily use my Laptop, it has Windows 10, and I would if it wasn't for the old programs on it. As always I appreciate all replies and would thank you in advance.

    I use Roboform on W10 and W7. The major changes in v8 which secure your login passcards from casual observation is probably where they excluded XP. You could still use v7 on XP and update your logins manually on that system, it's a PITA but it would work. I don't use any cloud storage for my logins, so I have to update each of my systems via USB anyway so doing the manual update for an XP system on v7 would just be another task. I've seen many systems in corporations and government that have legacy systems to run older programs, they require more effort to maintain but it's cheaper than buying (or writing) new programs.
