I have been using LastPass for a while, but I just want to give a warning about the password to Lastpass: Make sure you remember it. I remember mine because I type it to log in every day. But I set one up for my wife where she just left it logged in on her laptop browser. It was fine until the laptop dies... I put in a hint that was so cryptic that I can't even figured out what it was. And you cannot recover the password unless you have a browser that was used to connected to Lastpass, and her computer died. It doesn't matter if you have control of the email that registered with the account, you won't be able to recover the password. We were lucky because I finally able to find the password that I have stored on my computer.. took lots of digging. I think if you have a paid account, you could set up a recovery method or something, but you have to do it ahead of the time.

Can't you just store the wife's password as one of your passwords in your lastpass data?

I have been happy with Bitwarden, plus it's free.

I have a Keepass file that I manage on my computer, store on two different cloud services, and download to my phone. I get all the benefits of password security without being tied to a service/fees.

The main downsides are that there is some manual uploading/downloading of the file, and that passwords don't get automatically entered in my browser.

I do something similar. I use KeePass and sync my encrypted file to my Google Drive. I feel pretty confident about the security of my Drive (very strong password, and 2FA is set up with a YubiKey). Even in the unlikely event of a breach, the KeePass file itself is encrypted (with another, and very different) strong password.

Same here. Plus, it's open source.

1Password for me too. Customer service/support is very responsive and first class, I've been a user for several years now mainly with Imac, MacBook Pro, iPhone and Android tablet.

I have an envelope sealed in a safe with the necessary details stored in case I croak it, and my executor who will need it has the safe details.
