Chose Bitwarden
Other solutions felt more clunky or were significantly higher priced. Bitwarden seems to straddle the consumer/prosumer/SMB fence more than adequately by designing their user experience to feel welcoming but also trustworthy and reliable. The other tools seem to assume that …

1Password (AgileBits, Inc)
I've described how I use it to manage confidential client logins for the websites I develop for them. Every site has a myriad of things that need logins - from setting up their domain name and hosting, to building the WordPress site, to getting them set up with email and maintaining their sites. When I need to provide IT support to our staff, I have my phone right there to log in to their computers to address the issues. When I want to order cookies from Amazon or check my home's security camera settings, it's there for personal needs as well. There are sharing features that I haven't explored enough to be comfortable with setting up for staff. They may be just great, but it is a place where I personally don't make use of the program.

Bitwarden supports various forms of two-factor authentication, including time-based one-time passwords (TOTP), Duo, YubiKey, and other hardware-based tokens. This integration enhances the security of the Bitwarden account and allows to store and manage their 2FA credentials for other applications within Bitwarden itself.

Pros
1Password (AgileBits, Inc)
  • 1Password's Watchtower service is a real value add - 1Password monitors the security news for evidence of security breaches containing your credentials and alerts you if you have been impacted. That is a huge value as it enables you to get out in front of a security breach and be proactive in protecting yourself.
  • 1Password's core strength is that it makes it easy to practice good security hygiene by using strong, unique passwords for each site you interact with. This is something that all password managers do now, but offering an easy experience is key.
  • 1Password's password sharing features makes it easy to share team credentials with other team members, and to decide who amongst the team gets access to the designated credentials.

Cons
1Password (AgileBits, Inc)
  • 1Password is so secure, that it lacks a self-managed "forget your password" functionality which means that as a manager, I have to approve password resets which may slow down some users.
  • On Chrome, the extension sometimes stops working when the browser is updated.

  • Bitwarden has great functionality all around, however, I would in the future like to see this product as an SSO/IDM distributor.

Its simplicity and vast functionality provide a solution to a former pain point for our organization. As long as 1P exists, we'll be customers.

Usability
1Password (AgileBits, Inc)
The 1Password app design is top notch, much better than a couple other password managers I've looked at. The app and service are very flexible, allowing for many different types of data storage. The browser extensions generally work very well, allowing for easy access to login information while using pretty much any modern web browser.

I have never had any issues with 1Password and they have always been able to answer my questions adequately resolve my issues. Furthermore, they have a robust peer forum that can be accessed. They have helpful "Get to know Apps", videos and many articles to assist in the process of using the product.

I don't know any of the software in the list, but normally, I used to save logins in Chrome - whether work or private, in separate accounts of course. Chrome stores information, even credit card info in plain text, that is easy to crack. 1Password is a step up, or even, several steps up from there. The Master key is stored in a Google service though, that 1Password gave me in a pdf format, but I consider that safe

Return on Investment
1Password (AgileBits, Inc)
  • 1Password has empowered me to meet the stringent security demands of my organization without having to resort to complex, time-intensive encryption setups to store all of my various credentials. Instead of wasting time on building, configuring, and maintaining such infrastructure, 1Password manages it for me.
  • 1Password's annual subscription pricing model is reasonable, given a great deal of value, it has provided me, both personally and in my business operations. I don't need to invest capital into secure storage infrastructure to ensure that I always have my credentials at my fingertips, and I prefer to have a dedicated, focused security company own the hardware behind this great service.
  • The fact that I control my 1Password account means that I can get double the use out of it: personal and professional account credentials sit side-by-side in my secure vault. Because I do not need to rely on my internal IT department to provide access, I am confident in storing whatever I need to store.

It also integrates with email alias services for additional security. Using the strong generator tool keeps personal info like anniversaries and pet names out of your passwords, out of the dark web, and out of hackers’ hands.Screenshot of Bitwarden Send, a feature that lets users quickly share encrypted files and text with another individual via a private link. It can also be used to automatically share vault items using collections in a Bitwarden organization.Screenshot of Bitwarden's sync feature, that syncs passwords and other sensitive data (like identities, addresses, and credit cards) across devices, including mobile devices.Screenshot of where Bitwarden can auto-fill login information into websites. Autofill can be used across browsers, mobile apps (Android and iOS), and other places using associated URIs.
