Ever since LastPass has hobbled its own free service, Bitwarden with its low prices, attractive design and a generously featured free tier became one of the most popular password managers. For the reasons mentioned, Bitwarden is currently the best option for anyone who wants to sync all their logins across all their devices without having to pay for the basic service. 

Bitwarden also offers a very affordable $10-per-year paid version that comes with most of the features you’d find with LastPass, Keeper or 1Password, though it can be a bit counter-intuitive to use.

Other key features include an innovative secure information-sharing service called Send, a “portable” Windows version you can install on a flash drive and extensions for eight different browsers. It also lets you set up your own servers to sync passwords if you so choose, something that privacy geeks will surely appreciate.

The only major downsides are a somewhat limited desktop app and the fact that the mobile apps can’t auto-fill credit-card numbers and other non-login information (functionality limited to browser extensions). It is also less intuitive than some other premium paid options, so if you value comfort and ease of use over value/savings, then LastPass, Keeper or 1Password are the way to go.

If you decide to go with BitWarden, we believe the paid version is affordable enough ($10) to be worth getting for the 2FA (Yubikey) support alone.
