Meet Bitwarden, the best alternative to LastPass

As you might know, LastPass, one of the best password managers on the market for many people around the world, has decided it won't be like that anymore Because it will limit access to multi-device sync for its Free plan users' to only one type of device starting from March 16th, and also limit the email technical support to the premium users only starting from March 17th, which means that after this date, Free plan users can view and manage their passwords on only one category of devices: mobile or computer. Mobile device users can only use their passwords on their iPhones, Android phones, tablets, and smartwatches, while computer users will only be able to do so on desktop and laptop computers (Windows, macOS, and Linux) in addition to the LastPass browser extensions.

As a free user, this change does not suit me, as I don't want to pay to manage and secure my passwords, and at the same time, I need to use and access them on both my laptop and my Android phone, so I need a replacement for it.

There are a lot of password manager options on the market, but most of them are either fully paid, offer a limited number of passwords that you can save in their free plan, or it's not cross-platform, so I can't use it when I'm using Linux.

 After a bit of searching, I found what I'm looking for, a password manager with a generous free plan that gives me unlimited encrypted vault items that enables me to sync all my passwords across all my devices, it's cross-platform, supports importing passwords from other password managers, it has a secure password generator, it's open-source which makes it more secure than most other password managers, I can also adjust my vault timeout to set how long it will remain open from the last time I accessed it, and I can even set up a two-step authentication To add an extra layer of protection to my account.

Bitwarden is the only password manager you'll ever need, providing you with almost everything to manage and protect your passwords, notes, cards, and identities for free, and if you want some extra features like 1 GB encrypted storage for file attachments, account health, and data breach reports to keep your vault safe and more, you can upgrade to their premium plans for less than $1 per month ($10 per year) for your personal use or $3.33 per month ($40 per year) for your entire family (up to 6 persons).
