    Phoronix: Keeper Password Manager Launches New Linux Version

    I can't imagine many Linux desktop users are interested in a closed-source, commercial-driven password manager for their systems, but for those that are, Keeper launched a new version of its Keeper Password Program Manager for Linux...

    Yup. Something as sensitive as that has to be local and opensource.

        KeepassX for the win. Seriously tho I generally don't understand why people use any closed-source PM. Worst are things like LastPass with centralized access for some reason pushed by corporations.

            I like pass (http://passwordstore.org/) even more. It uses gpg for encryption (works best with a smartcard), uses git for synchronization, and there is a passff Firefox plugin.

              My passwords will be locked inside a vault that is air gaped, secure and only accessible to my self, i.e. my head, thank you very much.

                presumably you're likely to use this if you are looking to use their cross-device synchronization across platforms or required by your internal IT infrastructure
                IT requirements are exactly why I'd end up using this. We use a product from a different company, but our IT staff actively scans for other installed password managers on our sysresy and has us remove them if found.

                  You would be surprise how many corporates will use something like this precisely BECAUSE it's closed source and remote. Outside of technology companies, the old mentality of open-source-is-for-hippies-we-need-"business-grade"-"solutions" still very much prevails. They don't want to have to use something that in their view means cost, not bottom line; they much prefer subscribing to an external service because at least it's predictable in budget terms. Plus in 99.99999% of the cases, those people don't want to actually solve a problem, all they want is to make it someone else's problem.

                    And I use the regular one using mono, works also like a charm, even auto type and hot keys
