heads-up to non-paying LastPass customers:

"LastPass Free Accounts Will Now Work on Either Your Phone or Computer, Not Both"

If you don't want to pay, maybe consider switching to BitWarden?

here's a pretty considered birdsite thread from the EIC of Motherboard (Vice's tech site):

> I generally believe if something is good you should simply pay for it, but LastPass has changed its business model and pricing so much that I think I am just going to switch to a company that is clear about its model and why it charges what it does... This is a product design and user experience designed for no one, and suggests LastPass has no idea what it's doing

Though imho this article should link to KeePassXC (keepassxc.org/) rather than KeePass

@schlink @anna

funnily enough I just got on here to mention I’m currently evaluating a switch to #bitwarden.

I can only assume there will be a lot of that in the coming weeks.

@schlink well that sounds perfectly useless. My keepass in Dropbox can only sync three devices, but that's still a step up

@schlink Two guides I have written to tackle this problem that could potentially help you:

https://peterbabic.dev/blog/install-syncthing-archlinux-arm

I was using Keepass2Android but started using KeepassDX because of @piggo ‘s recommendation. The setup partly described in the guides works really well for me.

@schlink Oof, glad I switched to Bitwarden. I was getting sketchy vibes every time I used Lastpass.

@schlink every couple of months i consider running my own BitWarden but the task of actually taking care of my passwords seems… daunting.

aaaaand it probably costs me a little more to run my own thing than to pay LastPass

(which i used to do… when i had a regular income and needed to share passwords)

@schlink KeePass is nowhere near an alternative to LastPass. I've tried, moved to BitWarden instead
