Which password manager would you recommend?
Corey Nachreiner says
Good questions, but one I can only give you a personal opinion on. Since my company doesn’t really play in that space, I haven’t done as much hands on comparison of password managers as I have, say, network security gear. However, I have used a few myself. My preference is 1password, but it could just be due to familiarity. One of my main requirements is that I’m a cross-platform kinda guy. I use OS X, Windows, Linux, iOS, and Android regularly. Other than Linux, 1password was one of the early ones that supported multiple platforms well, and wasn’t overly annoying in how it operates…. so that’s my personal preference… but again.. I haven’t really tried others or compared in quite awhile. (PS… it also does have a web interface that can allow Linux usage, but not very seamlessly)
Many thanks for the suggestions, I will try to take advantage of it.
