Our digital presence in 2023 necessitates the holding of dozens of passwords. We’re told to make them long and complex, all different from each other, and to change them regularly. But we’re also advised not to write them down for security reasons. If you don’t have a photographic memory, the only way to square all of those requirements is to use a password manager. We’ve compared two of the top options on the market: Bitwarden vs LastPass.

There’s no completely right answer here — both password managers are premium options with great features that are likely to be more than sufficient for any user. But there are big differences between them, and you might find that one better suits your needs and budget.
