God damn it lastpass, how the hell do you get a memory leak and an infinite loop in a fucking browser extension?! Using 7GB of RAM and all 8 cores @ 3,4GHz!!

    Same shit happened to me a few days ago.

    LastPass is the worst

    Really gives you the confidence to give them all your passwords, don't it

    @groxx Do you have an alternative that works just as well? For "critical" passwords I already use KeePassXC, but that is neither portable nor convenient.

    @PrivateGER Share the Database through your favorite cloud storage (for portability) and combine it with an offline keyfile (for enhanced security) then.

    @PrivateGER did you try Bitwarden? It has an extension as well.

    @PrivateGER Was going to recommend Bitwarden as well!

    @linuxxx Wait, I can self-host that? Awesome.
    Time to set that up then.

    Pure genius. Ram is cheap. And who can find a password hidden in 7G of garbage?
    No need for cpu intensive cryptography.
    My laptop has 32G of ram, I will be even more safe.

    @PrivateGER 1Password is my go-to recommendation because they seem to know what they're doing. It's a bit pricey but they're the only manager that's even remotely user-friendly IMO.

    I'm not fond of their "put it all in the browser" push the last two years though, so lately I've been looking at Bitwarden fairly seriously. It's missing some rather significant features still, but seems alright so far, and the fact that you can run your own server is rather important to me - it means the client and the server don't trust each other, as it should be.
    Unfortunately it doesn't have a serverless mode, so I can't just toss it in Dropbox or whatever. I've been meaning to look into forking it and running a server in the app(s).

    @groxx Already set up BitWarden now. :)

    I switched to Bitwarden too a few months ago. Mine's not self-hosted yet but I plan to move to that soon.

    I think that my only problem with it is that it doesn't detect new sites very well yet. I've had to manually add sites that weren't detected by the browser extension.

    @bytecode use Bitwarden. LastPass is absolutely untrustworthy. I deleted my account and kept getting emails for it. Turns out it was never actually deleted. I had to contact support and demand they remove it.
