The more you sign-up for services on the internet, the more unique passwords you should usually use. The greatest risk factor is to use the same password over and over again or to store all your passwords in a simple text app.

The solution is simple. Use a highly-secured password manager. A good password manager will create safe passwords, it will manage them throughout different devices, and it will keep all your data in a safe place.

What I did, to find the best one, is to ask some users on Reddit about their opinion. What is the best password manager according to Reddit?

Reddits Opinion

Trying to find some sort of pattern, I’ve checked tons of subreddits. I didn’t even know that there is a subreddit, especially for passwords, called r/passwords. But that’s not the only one I’ve checked.

I’ve also been to r/Lifehacks, r/PrivacyTools and some other subreddits. Here are the top comments that really stood out.

BitWarden

There are lots of password managers to choose from, but BitWarden seems very popular on Reddit. That’s why I think it’s safe to say, according to Reddit, BitWarden is the best password manager.

The reason for it’s popularity is that BitWarden comes with a lot of advantages and it’s basically a free software. It’s the perfect starting point for someone who wants to take online security more serious. So, let’s check out what BitWarden has to offer.

Advantages BitWarden

Pricing

Depending whether you need a personal plan or a business plan, BitWarden offers different pricing options. The basic personal account is free, which is awesome, and in case you want to share your data with your colleagues, you can get the business plan for $3 per team member and per month. Which is pretty fair.

However, there is also a premium personal account. For $10 per year, you’ll get pretty awesome premium features. You’ll be able to share files with family & friends, generate 2FA keys directly from the vault, or get a hardware security token like Yubikey. Here’s a redditor talking about BitWardens premium features and if they are worth it.

And also, let’s not forget, by getting the premium account you’ll support the developers. They do an awesome job by making BitWarden accessible for everyone for free. Actually a lot of users choose the premium account only for that reason.

Like most password managers, BitWarden offers a browser extension, a desktop app and a phone app.

If you choose BitWarden, don’t forget to enable 2-step verification and safe your master password. You should write it down somewhere safe. This is extremely important, because without your master password, you won’t be able to access Bitwarden. That’s also the reason why BitWarden is so safe, because without the master password, not even Bitwarden itself could access any of your date.

Alternatives to BitWarden

If there is something about BitWarden that you don’t like, two other names that are being mentioned a lot are 1Password and Keepass. Let’s check out 1Password first.

1Password

1Password password manager according to Reddit

From what I see 1Password is more popular than Keepass, but the functionality is very similar. Your passwords are safe and they offer additional features such as 128-bit security, backups and synchs. Although 1Passwords user interface is much cleaner.

1password Reddit opinion

1password is not free, even for a personal plan, it’s $2,99 per month. However, some Redditors really like the cool user interface and some additional features like the watchtower function. What this feature does is to “watch out” (hence the name) if your password was part of a breach somewhere on the internet. If so, you’ll get notified and this way you’re able to change it up quickly and prevent further damage.

Also 1passwords family plan is very popular on Redit as you can see here:

1Password offers a free trial. So that is something you should consider if you’re not entirely sure about which password manager to use.

Keepass

Keepass is another free password manager. It doesn’t offer premium features like the other password managers, but it was still a popular pick on Reddit. Keepass has a rather simple user interface.

Keepass user interface

There were some Redditors that had problems with the Keepass browser extension but other than that, users still love it. One Redditor mentioned that he was able to secure all his passwords with a key file instead of using a master password, that is why he preferred Keepass. So, the best password manager really depends on what you want.

If you don’t want to store your passwords in a cloud, Keepass is the way to go. But I should mention that there is absolutely no reason, in terms of security, to not choose a password manager which uses a master password.

No matter which of these three password managers you’re going to use, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed. Overall all these three were recommended a lot on Reddit.
