Best password manager for freelancer

I work for a few different organisations from home on a Mac desktop.  I am looking for a safe way to store the multiple passwords I use for each different organisation.
Any suggestions?

  • Agree, Bitwarden has been a game changer for me.
    Things that are differerent: draw & drawer, brought & bought, loose & lose, dose & does, payed & paid


  • That's great - will take a look at Bitwarden

    KeePass


    Why KeePass?
    Today, you have to remember many passwords. You need a password for a lot of websites, your e-mail account, your webserver, network logins, etc. The list is endless. Also, you should use a different password for each account, because if you would use only one password everywhere and someone gets this password, you would have a problem: the thief would have access to all of your accounts.

    KeePass is a free open source password manager, which helps you to manage your passwords in a secure way. You can store all your passwords in one database, which is locked with a master key. So you only have to remember one single master key to unlock the whole database. Database files are encrypted using the best and most secure encryption algorithms currently known (AES-256, ChaCha20 and Twofish). For more information, see the features page.

    Is it really free?
    Yes, KeePass is really free, and more than that: it is open source (OSI certified). You can have a look at its full source code and check whether the security features are implemented correctly.

    There has been a thread the other week about that, have a look there:

    I second the KeePass suggestion... using this for almost 20 years, first under Windows and now Linux and Android. The Linux app I am using is called KeePassXC and it's available for MacOS as well (though there are also other offers, see https://keepass.info/download.html for all "official" downloads). KeePassXC is Open Source and freeware.

    Any reason not to use the Apple iCloud Keychain given you are a Mac user?
