(1/3) I'll be completely honest about #LastPass's recent announcement. I started using it 2 years ago, and I was willing to pay for it. However, after using it for a while I saw no reason to upgrade given that the Free plan already covered all my necessities.
(3/3) So I'm moving to LessPass; something that is open source, doesn't rely on any servers and it's been recommended to me multiple times. If any of you is not using a password manager, I strongly recommend you to do so!
@hector Looking briefly on their site it looks like there is actually a database with your passwords, somewhere. The beauty of LessPass is that it is stateless, so my passwords aren't stored anywhere :) They are generated each time using a combination of multiple things (the site I'm trying to log in, my "master password", etc.)
@hector Yeah, it has some advantages for sure, but also some trade-offs. I've been using LastPass for a while which is using this paradigm of storing the passwords somewhere, so I'll try LessPass to see how it goes. In the end, if I ever forget any of the seed data I can always reset the password. I don't keep really important passwords (the ones that cannot be reset by email) on these services.
@noeldemartin uses no server, you mean decentralised or only local use?
