Bitwarden is the only password manager I would trust, because it is open source.

It is used in the workplace with no major problems.

I swapped from lastpass due to them reducing functionality to force payment.

Bitwarden works better for me, plus I can share passwords with Mrs TC.

And - as pointed out by Afasoas - open source.

It’s not the only open source password manager. For example KeePass

I've found Keepass good. Not used Bit Warden.

I’m using bitwarden on my personal pc, in a browser on Linux. It does the job, and 2fa is a reassuring touch, though not as slick as 1password on my Mac, but work pay for that.

I trust both bitwarden and keepass. I like the integration between Firefox and Keepass but it doesn't look like it'll stay free for long.

KeePass is great and it is what I use because whenever I need my password database, I crack out a laptop, VPN into home and mount my NFS shares. Because of what I do, it's security over convenience.
There are other solutions that work with KeePass, like KeeWeb - but last time I checked it offered read only access to the Keepass database via the browser.

If you want passwords on the go - convenience over security, BitWarden is a better choice.
