Pretty much 4 years ago today, I said the following on my blog:
“I personally moved over to Bitwarden around 6 months ago, following the price rises by LastPass, as well as the fact that they had been purchased by LogMeIn – who have a proven track record of not treating their users very well.”
Kev in 2017 was a very, very wise man.
