Bitwarden is intended to be the easiest and safest way of storing your logins and passwords and keeping them synced between your devices.
With LastPass free password manager imposing restrictions on usage and Dropbox moving in the opposite direction, some serious changes in the password manager industry could be witnessed. What does this mean for the users? Is it LastPass’s way to convert free users into premium?
If you are looking to replace the password manager called LastPass, since they are shying away from a full free tiered option; then, look no further. I can recommend going with the open source replacement called Bitwarden. Since I have been using it, there has been no turning back. Works flawlessly from my computer and all devices… You can export your LastPass data and import it into Bitwarden. Easy Peasy!
Secure Your Passwords From Any Location or Device… Bitwarden gives you power to create and manage unique passwords, so you can strengthen privacy and boost productivity online from any device or location.
1Password reaches for the crown as LastPass loses its free-tier footing.

I encourage you to take a moment, click on the source link below, and read the article from c|net that talks about password management. After reading this article myself, I strongly endorse all the points that are made; especially the use of a password manager, but there were two points that jump out to me that I see people at home doing all the time:
1 – People use weak passwords (and never change them)
2 – People will use those same weak passwords on multiple accounts.
Longer passwords are better: 8 characters is a starting point
8 characters are a great place to start when creating a strong password, but longer logins are better. The Electronic Frontier Foundation and security expert Brian Kerbs, among many others, advise using a passphrase made up of three or four random words for added security. A longer passphrase composed of unconnected words can be difficult to remember, however, which is why you should consider using a password manager.
Don’t recycle your passwords
It’s worth repeating that reusing passwords across different accounts is a terrible idea. If someone uncovers your reused password for one account, they have the key to every other account you use that password for.
The same goes for modifying a root password that changes with the addition of a prefix or suffix. For example, PasswordOne, PasswordTwo (these are both bad for multiple reasons).

RememBear looks interesting and may be a good solution in managing your passwords and storing other private information… I intend on giving this app a try.
Secure and remember all your passwords with RememBear. A simple app that stores your passwords securely, and types them in right when you need them.
The majority of home based computer users use the same passwords (or easy to remember passwords) for nearly every account that they are subscribed to. Hacker’s (or criminals) know this and take advantage of these facts. If your password is easy to remember, then it is easy to hack.
To make your accounts secure, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you use a password manager to manage your accounts and the passwords associated with them. The “go to” password manager that I use (on all my computers and devices); and, have used since its’ inception is the “S10 Password Vault”. It has never let me down… The main feature I like about this software is that I have total control over my password information at the local level.
There are so many features to the S10 Password Vault that I encourage you to visit the developer’s site by clicking the source link below.S10 Password Vault is available for Windows as a standard installer and as a portable version that allows you to run directly from a USB drive (which then also contains your data file). There is also an “S10 Vault” mobile companion app for iPhone/iPad (in the App Store) and for Android devices (in the Google Play Store and Amazon App Store).
