Any Good LastPass Alternatives
 
LastPass was purchased by Logmein. Any ideas or suggestions for a replacement?

I'm currently using an encrypted text file but it can't fill forms for me. I have to copy and paste the data in the forms myself.

Perhaps this link?

I use keepassx.

I know pass is a cli option (with a plugin for firefox I believe)

Hi...

Welcome to the forum :)

It looks like Linux versions are still available or is this a philosophical disagreement with Logmein?

Regards...

Why do you feel you need a replacement for Lastpass?

Logmein has a bad reputation of customer support and price hikes of their products. I also read they ruined the hamachi vpn service which was free for up to a certain amount of devices and if you didn't pay, they'll disable your account. They might do the same to LastPass down the road.

I have no objections for companies to make money but if you offer a free service ( which has some limitations ) and then force buyers to upgrade isn't good business practice.

Keepass2 with Firefox extension Keefox. Password safe is then synced via my Owncloud server to other PC's and android phone.

Over the years I've had two password managers fail me - one on a change of database format, and one because I refused to use their cloud backup (refused to work after Android 6 install).

If I didn't have a (encrypted) txt file as a backup I would be stuffed. Lesson: the txt is all I really need.
I'll handle web forms myself ...

There are sites I login myself without using third party services. For example, I wouldn't use LastPass to put my login credentials for my bank accounts, paypal, amazon and other sites that had my sensitive information.

LastPass was good for filling in forms for trivial sites and some junk email accounts.
