Not all password managers are equal or one common price of usability

I think a password manager is a minimum requirement these days for staying safe online. I would recommend the one I use except that it does not prioritize usability. Good to see the maintainers reacting quickly, it would be even better if they offered options that were more secure in the 1st place like owning my own keys and owning that any sync they provide is always an untrusted transport, full stop.

Developers are scrambling to fix flaw that allows theft, malicious code execution.

  1. I suspect I have a similar solution. I use an open source, cross platform utility, and regular off-the-shelf file synchronisation, although I;’m thinking of replacing the latter with my own hosted solution too. I’m happy with it, but I appreciate that the minor inconvenience it adds on occasion would be “too much” for some less tech-immersed people.
