    I don't write checks. In fact I shredded all my checks many years ago. It's been so long since I wrote a check I forgot how to fill one out. :argh:

    Well that certainly explains why you never give out your checking account number to anyone.

    I picked up Sticky Password Manager for the lifetime deal of $30.

    It has a nice two factor authorization. It can use google authenticator app on your phone. If you for some reason cannot use your phone you can have a code sent to the email address on file.

    The desktop program works great. One click and it opens the link and logs in all for you. No more clicking is needed after the initial click. When in the app you need to pick one of your browsers and add the add on so it can work with the browser. Otherwise you have to copy and paste info.

    I normally use Bitwarden. But I am perfectly happy with Sticky for desktop. You can tell it to only save your info locally, share only via wifi to sync up with maybe your cell phone, or tell it to save to the cloud.

    When you have it unlocked and minimized it shows an icon in the lower right toolbar. You can right click it and see logins. Click one and it opens up perfectly.

    I do not really like the phone app though. But for WIndows Desktop it's perfect. No linux support at this time.

    I had no outage issues. I wonder who did and why.

    This incident and multiple security problems in the past (search here for Lastpass) confirm that my decision to switch to KeePass some years ago was the right one.

    Since then I had been using KeePassXC for a long time (which is definitely a great choice and improving more and more). However, recently I went back to KeePass as it's more flexible after all because of the many plug-ins available and its trigger system which, e.g., makes it easy to synchronize the database with other devices.

    Yes exactly, it's crazy to rely solely on the cloud. I would always store passwords locally.

    Crazy. Glad I moved over to Bitwarden awhile ago.
