Very happy to pay for services that are essential and I suspect I will be paying for bitwarden soon.


from Twitter https://twitter.com/danbrewer

After a long long time with lastpass I've decided to give bitwarden ago. So far so good. I was a premium subscriber to lastpass for a while but lastpass is starting to feel neglated. The change in the free service gave me a nudge to look at alternatives.
