If you're looking for a new password manager, we compare two popular options, especially now that LastPass has changed its pricing structure.
Many current password managers allow you to share your passwords with family members or other individuals or groups. (You do use a password manager, don’t you?)

Now Bitwarden has upped the ante by adding a feature it calls Send, which allows you to send files or text (including, if you wish, passwords) securely via end-to-end AES-256 bit encryption, using a link on its site. Bitwarden Send generates a link and includes a number of security options Here’s how it works: If you wish to send a file (it can be up to 100 MB), you... Continue reading…

It’s certainly an easy solution, and a reasonable one, depending on your point of view. Until recently, third-party password managers were known to be more secure, but Apple and Google have been working to make their built-in password managers more secure, while Microsoft is adding one to its authenticator app. So it could be a viable choice. One way, however, that these built-in password managers don’t stand up to their independent competitors is how tricky it can be to get preexisting passwords into their systems. If you tend to hang out in... Continue reading…
