    Yes, I found the cancel after the fact. My gripe is that I did not know that I had been forced to be enrolled in it without my knowledge.

    This is common everywhere. I was disappointed with MalwareBytes recently over this, as they do not have the option in the account and blamed the organisation that handles payment in their forum. You have to send an email to them and wait for a response. Luckily a card was expiring soon, so I updated payment with that.

    PayPal is better as you can just remove them from auto payments, I did this to an organisation that wouldn't allow me to stop a charge in the site. ********, all of them.

    Thanks for the heads up on LastPass.

    Rant completed.

    Out of curiousity, do password managers track a user? They must be able to access sites you visit in order to fill forms, but is there any monitoring beyond this?

    I don't peruse any dodgy sites, Wilders is about as dodgy as it gets! (jk), but I wonder what else that helpful little add-on/extension is doing. I'm just musing.

    Has anyone tried safe in cloud?
    https://www.safe-in-cloud.com/en/
    Seems to work very well on Android and Windows, some nice features as well for checking weak and passwords that are the same.

    Yo. I use it on my android phone. I know on the PC you can use it for free and it will store the files locally or in your cloud. I put my encrypted file on Dropbox. I can sit at my desk PC and edit it and then press sync and my phone gets synced as well. It gives you several choices of companies on where you want to save it if you choose to. Google drive, Dropbox, and a few others I forget.

    Here is the cool thing about it on android. I used it for all my android passes even bank apps. I tap in the login area of the app and it ask me would you like to open SIC(safe-in-cloud.) Yes. Then it ask for your SIC pass. I have it set so it only ask me the first 4 digits and remembers the rest. Now you might think that's a security risk but not so fast because you can set it to self erase itself after 5 or more attempts. That's right.. If someone gets your phone and tries to guess the 4 digit code wrong its gonna self fry the password file. i turned off the fingerprint option to open SIC just for security as well. There is no 3rd party holding your password as hostage. It's just your cloud. Safe In Cloud doesn't store anything of yours.

    It's really nice and works well. Since I use a few different bowers it doesn't play nice with all of them but most its fine.

    Now for my PC or Linux at home I still use Keepass2 and Bitwarden. But for phone I do like SIC. And its cheap. You pay one time and your done. The author updates it often too.

    Thanks :)
    Yes I like it and it is very fast compared to Bitwarden which also freezes quite often as well on all android phones and tablets that we use.
    I think I will buy the family license as it is currently on offer for another 6 days.

    Guys, is there a way to print passwords from only certain folders in KeePass? It seems to generate an HTML file with a list of all folders when you choose the Print command. It will automatically open in the browser which is a bit weird if you ask me.

    PayPal tried to stick it to me on an eBay purchase years ago. I paid for a laptop and the user was deactivated from eBay right after. They obviously never shipped it. Out of nearly $2,000 they refunded about $400 (if I remember correctly) and told me they would refund the rest if/when they could collect it from the seller. Fortunately I was able to do a charge back with the credit card that was used. This is why they want you to register a checking account instead of a credit card. I will never use PayPal again.

    I NEVER give out my Checking Account Number to anyone. With that number anyone can play hell with all your accounts associated with that Bank / Credit Union. Too much trouble changing a Checking Account Number. I had a PayPal account connected to my credit card. I got tired of PayPal sending me notices to complete my account by registering my Checking Account with them. I closed my PayPal account several years ago never to return.

    PayPal are scammers and thieves, they make money by stealing yours.

    Roboform seems to have changed their terms for using the "free" desktop only version. You cannot use the backup/restore function anymore to move your password file to other computers. In talking to Roboform support I was told that to use this function you need to purchase a Roboform license as the program now needs to call home before allowing a backup/restore operation. Must have changed in the last version as I have been using the backup/restore function since 2017. Just an FYI.

    Lastpass is the most looked at... glad it is the case. More bugs are discovered better it is for the end user.
    Do you see the same for other password solutions? I don't. Can't believe that beyond lastpass is all bug free.

    But why do they need others to find these high risk bugs. It's almost like they don't do any testing themselves, and this is what bothers me. And yes, I'm sure that other big name password managers have holes too.

    Ideally bug bounty and 3rd party audit should be used as the last check - but in reality many companies use them wrongly, as seen in Netgear case.

    Do you remember when Tavis examined various PWMs first time? He found many serious vuln in LP (and some other PWMs) w/in few minutes and harshly criticized their state of insecurity. He examined 1Password and found only a non-severe problem, while didn't find any issue in KeePass. Now 1Password gives much higher payout for bugs (max $100,000, ave. $512) than LP (max $5,000, ave. $177). KeePass doesn't have such bounty as it's a personal project but fortunately it was chosen for EU-FOSSA2 project which gives up to 25,000 Euro (+ 20% bonus) for a bug (I couldn't find ave. payout).

    But I'd say LP is okay because it's still better than what most ppl are doing, and whatever PWM you use, a single supply chain attack ruins all your credentials unless you've taken measure (i.e. storing only a part of credentials, aka append method).

    I agree with:

    Seems way too expensive compared to several other Password managers like Bitwarden and others. My main experience is Bitwarden and it works on all relevant platforms, Windows, Linux, MacOS, Android and IOS for a way more decent price ($10 a year if you want some extra features, for now at least)
    But competition is always good, all they have to do is to implement features that people "must" have and that no other PW manager has if they want to be expensive.

    Except for every time you write a check.
