Designers! Tell me about your password manager!

over 4 years ago from , Creative Director

Hey DN!

I'm Design lead at SpiderOak, and we're researching users and password managers. We've got a short survey together and I'd be grateful if you could take a few minutes to answer a handful of questions. It's simple and anonymous and most questions can be skipped if you'd rather not answer them.

The survey is live here!

With your help, we'll be able to design and develop privacy-focused software that's actually useable. And that's a good thing.

Thank you! ✨

    No time for survey. 1password FTW. Makes my life so much easier.

      Hell yes. Best thing I've ever used for password management and I've used a lot of services over the years.

      I gave you a point for the "No time for surveys", but I'm #teamLastpass forever

      Yep. Just got an alert from Google that someone had tried to log in to my gmail with my password (!). Immediately switched to 1password, different password for everything and made them look somewhat like this: qfAUDrpteK)otnUjiqMt9Fy7LE+LpRop.

      Me too, 1password is good, but not good at all.

      i think there might be another password manager will come out in the future that better than best.

    Agreed with all comments, 1Password all the way, it syncs across every device I use and is fantastic.

    Dashlane! There's free option but upgrading allows you to sync across all devices and browsers...great features with a slick look.

      I use both. It depends on the context though. If I am on my PC, I either use my phone and open 1Password, or use Lastpass on my browser. If I am on my mac I use 1Password without thinking about it.

      I use Dashlane between all my devices. It's a little more expensive than the other options but it has the best experience out of all of them.

      I agree. I switched to Dashlane from 1Password on a whim, and I haven't switched back. It works really well on my phone for sites and apps and the 1-click password change feature is really handy for when sites get compromised.

      My favorite feature is sharing credentials with others. I'm able to set secure passwords for utilities or netflix and easily share them to my wife. She gets one-click access to the stuff she wants and I get a decent 12+ character password on everything that allows it.

        Does it still look like a pixel turd? I was in the alpha program and haven't tried it for over a year, if not more… hoping something's changed. It felt really out of place last I tried.

    If I could do it all again, I'd probably use 1password instead of LastPass.

    Lastpass

      Lastpass is awesome. Browser plugin and mobile app plus 2FA makes it super secure and handy. Shared passwords between your team is also super handy for those apps where you only have one user account and don't want to pay for more!

    So where do we sign up to hear more about this password manager SpiderOak is building?

    I recently switched from LastPass to 1password. Really happy with the ease of syncing between iOS and Mac.

    I'm not sure if that's a jab at 1password or not. But, I've been using 1password for years now and haven't looked back. We also have a shared vault for office passwords that admins and devs use instead of trying to share passwords in person, OTR IM, or having to walk over and type it in.

      Not so! 1Password is great but for the most part privacy-concious apps have difficult UX or awful visual design.

        Imo 1password looks awesome on ios and osx. I've stored 600 passwords in it and I couldn't imagine it bein better. It needs lots of polishing on windows though.

        Want to try to remember one of my SSH passwords? (Obviously not the real thing but generated with the same algorithm.) :smile:

          I'll pass thanks!

          But my passwords are generally along the lines of "3)#Ddwd11" too, so whilst they're not as strong as yours, they're not terrible.

          Brute force will brute force though, I guess.

    If only I could get the nice interface & design of 1Password with the speed, automatic-logins, and less intrusive authentication of LastPass, I would be so happy. For now I tolerate the worse interface in favor of the better UX.

    Wait, there are other password managers besides 1Password?

    Hope their new Windows app will be better, though. Speed of the Win7 version is horrible.

    I use SafeInCloud, but that's cause I'm a broke college student who didn't want to drop $50 on 1Password. Also cause the dev is awesome and responds quickly

    I just write down all my passwords on a crumpled piece of paper on my desk. That way people think its trash and not a list of my passwords.

    I use 1password at home, and I'd use it at work too, but there we use Lastpass for the shared credential capabilities in addition to the standard password features.

    I use the same prefix and suffix for all of my passwords, with the website's name in it. From a security standpoint, is this a bad idea?

      Depends whether one password is decrypted and a human sees it or if the machine doing it is intelligent enough to see the pattern. I would have access to all your accounts with only one password decrypted, that's for sure.

    I've been using my1login for a long time and love it. They allow passwords to shared with other users, have a browser plugin and the option of using 2FA.

    I highly recommend my1login!

    If you're on a mac, keychain manager is the best thing for passwords. 1. Its free 2. It integrates into safari autofill 3. Its got all the same functionality as 1password or any other password manager.

    1Password, there's no discussion about that. Great Design, strong security as long as you choose a powerful password.
