    Question What password manager for Ubuntu would you recommend?

    What password manager for Ubuntu would you recommend? Ideally it should work well with Firefox. Thank you in advance!

    I've been using KeePass on Windows and KeePass2Android on Android.

    KeePassXC should run on Linux.

    I'm sure there are others out there, but that's the one I've been using for years.

    Keepassxc.

    I do not integrate into any browser. I want browser bugs and browser addons not having direct access to my passwords. For me, that is common sense - sorta like not putting any passwords on the internet. A common sense "smell" test.

    Keepass has many password managers that are compatible due to the DB format being widely shared. That means we can find 20+ programs across Linux, Windows, Android platforms that will work with KeePass-V2 DB. The trick is to only make changes/updates on 1 system, then have that replicated to all the others. I do it daily, automatically, a little after midnight. I'm a little afraid to have write access setup on storage that automatically syncs multiple platforms if any are my "write" system. For read-only (in my mind only) versions/devices, it doesn't matter.

    Honestly Id run my own bitwarden_rs server -- I think its called vaultwarden know if you want browser integration. There are plus and minuses with every password manager.
