LastPass changed its pricing on March 16, 2021, making its free tier a much less attractive option. But thankfully, there are many alternatives that basically replicate LastPass's features 1:1, so if you're not ready to pay a fee for a service that used to be free, you can simply switch to the competition. Here are a few password managers that should be the most familiar if you've used LastPass before, complete with instructions on how to switch.
Bitwarden is something of a rising star in the app world, quickly gaining users and favor after LastPass crippled its non-paying tier. The free, encrypted password protector has emerged as the most feature-rich option for free users. The Android app and the platform at large are getting a new option: Send, an ability to send text info with the same encryption tools as the password keeper.
Everybody should use a password manager. Whether you only have five online accounts or 500, it's important to use unique, hard-to-guess credentials for every single one. If you reuse passwords, a breach from one of your accounts could help hackers get access to your whole online life. Password managers simplify and safeguard that process. There are tons of great options to choose from, and we've curated a list of eleven of our favorite solutions.
Your online accounts are much safer when you rely on more than only a password, and that's where two-factor authentication (2FA) apps come in. You can use them to create an extra layer of security for your accounts, requiring you to enter a one-time password (OTP) in addition to your regular credentials when you log in. That prevents hackers from accessing your account with a stolen password only.
Open-source password manager Bitwarden has gained a feature that might give you some peace of mind in case of an emergency. If you're a premium subscriber (at $10/year), you can now specify designated contacts that can request access to your Vault to help out if you can't get ahold of your passwords yourself.

Google’s newest pair of flagships did away with a rear-facing fingerprint reader in favor of a more sophisticated face unlock. Password manager apps fall under the category that can benefit the most from its added security (arguable), and they’re indeed leading the way. Taking a cue from Lastpass, Enpass and Bitwarden have now joined the small list of password managers that support Pixel 4’s biometric authentication.
