Seems that for version 8, 1p won't have a stand alone application anymore. They have published a white paper, enumarating some of the design guidelines they used.

Though it seems solid, still prefer a stand alone app, with the stored data locally

I don't know anything about that product. But, I would not want a password manager that can't be used offline at all. Of course, I guess, if the internet is down, you could argue whether you NEED a password manager very much. But, I keep some things in LastPass that are not internet website passwords.

May your bits be stable and your interfaces be fast. :cool: Ron

1Password can still be used offline. Offline vaults referred to vaults that where the syncing is not handled by the 1password service but by a third party (eg Dropbox) or not at all. The vault was basically a file on your local filesystem and it was up to you to sync it across your devices. The main benefit was that this meant you could use 1password with a perpetual licence.

The new version does away with local vaults, and instead requires you to use their subscription service. However a local (encrypted) copy of your data is stored on your computer (in a similar fashion to what LastPass does).

I moved to BitWarden (online) and had an internet outage in the office. So I go to log into the gateway for WAN interface status... drat - I can't get to the BitWarden database as I have no internet access for the network. My first exposure to the situation.

Fortunately my mind went to plan-b and accessed BitWarden via the cell phone's cellular connection and I could access the gateway login.

I presume they must have an option to export your password database? I know LastPass does, and they're supposed to be close to feature parity, I recommend making a secured backup. (You could use a 7-zip file with a strong password, or maybe a VeraCrypt file based filesystem.) Set a reminder in your smartphone to remind you to update that backup periodically.
