    Well readme.txt was just an example you could give it any random name and file extension so adversary would have to test every file on the PC to find it.

    I don't use one. A couple times a week for less than 5 minutes I sit & consciously remember them all one by one.

    I don't trust the managers as in one key reveals them all.

    You can have as many password databases as you want in KeePass and several other managers.

    That would be a PITA for me looking up every password because I have hundreds of passwords.

    In first database (file) you can put passwords for *work related accounts. In second you can put accounts related to personal things. In third something else. Every database can by encrypted by separate password/key.
    *It's just an example. You can partition you password storage differently.

    one of my tests for a password manager would be, remove the file extension from the database file and see if the manager can still open it.
    The only technical purpose for a file extension is, to click on the database and windows knows which application should open it.
    But who does that with a password manager database file ? Most people just open the main application first and let it open the database.

    The covert purpose for a file extension would be, an adversary can easily find your password database on your PC by searching for the known file extension.
    People who work in security and create such applications know this. They live and breath security features. So if any even slightly weakened feature is apparent, it is likely they are working against your security, not for it.

    I've been using Firefox's built-in password manager lately. One less extension to use.

    I'm using Lastpass (premium licence). Never had any problems with this service: based on my personal experience i would recommend Lastpass.

    Today have ditched the bulky erroneous LastPass for bitwarden.

    Was it a good move?

    Only time can tell

    Yes it is probably best if only you know which application is managing and storing your passwords.
    I would say this though, IMO the best password manager scheme is the one that doesn't store passwords at all.
    Title: www.website.com
    User: memememe
    Key: my_master_password

    Sha256 hash pass = title+user+key

    This means you can use the same easy to remember key, but every password is generated differently.
    Secondly, changing that key changes the password so easy to change all passwords at once.
    Thirdly, password is generated when you need it and never stored so more secure and it is not possible to lose access to them.

    How do you handle sites that require a regular password update?

    One key won't do then?

    Some of those types of password generator have a version number too, so you could keep the same master password for all of them and just change the version number on that one, changing a single digit, from 1 to 2 drastically changes a hash.

    Currently went back to 1Password from Lastpass. So far so good.

    Technically their price doubled. However, I still believe that $24/year is still an excellent price and certainly not to much to ask for a stellar program like LastPass. Most people who use paid antivirus, pay much more than that for their antivirus. I certainly want to support the continued development and improvement of LastPass because I think it's such a great product.

    I will probably use Lockbox by Mozilla when it's officially released.

    Yeah, $24 isnt much (I pay way more than that every year on software that I end up not using ;) so money is not the issue really) and I have been a premium customer for 7 years event though I didnt use many of their premium content. Just happy with a good product I wanted to support. $13 I feel was fair.
    I chose to change manager coz I didnt feel it was motivated with such high raise - and on top of that not communicating about why.. I found out the price raise when the yearly renewal was about. Then I red more about Logmein (who bought Lastpass) and their history of doing exactly the same thing before. Just because they feel they can.
    I feel I dont want to pay for such behavior. I also didnt find it worth for me to pay more for more "bloat" that I never use. And since there are other managers that do basically the same thing and easy to change so it was a nobrainer for me.

    I use Lastpass. It is easy to use, free and backed up in the cloud in case I lose my devices.
