Which Password Manager do you use? (2019)

I’ve updated the poll from 2017 to form two new polls because of the 20 option limitation in the polls.

  • There is an option for “None, I don’t use a password manager”.
  • The web browser password managers for Firefox, Chrome, Edge, etc. are grouped together.
  • The password managers that are only used on Apple macOS and Unix are excluded.
  • Following the two polls there is a wiki table listing all the password managers I found.
  • For the 2020 poll I’ll reduce the list to the 19 most popular
  • None, I don’t use a password manager
  • Web browser e.g. Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Opera
  • 1Password
  • 1U Password Manager
  • Bitwarden
  • Buttercup
  • DashLane

Might have been best to wait one more month and post this as a 2020 poll.

I did think of that but this way I get to improve it in a month or two.

Right now, I don’t have the time to organise the polls by market share or type of product e.g. standalone or multiuser (of various types).

That’s a very good point!

I use more than 1 password manager, not only use the browsers password manager, I use Keepass. I like having full control over my passwords, Keepass allows me to store the database on my NAS and all my systems can access my NAS so 1 database controlled by ME!

Stickypassword (For now). Check their twitter handle. They seem to take privacy seriously, just like Glasswire, Mozilla. And they offer lifetime license too. That’s convenient. Since subscription based apps are becoming extremely costly and every software I use has a subscription. Antivirus, PDF, VPN, Office, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Spotify and other extra softwares. Phew.
