    I don’t want a subscription to a password manager, which is why I’m dumping 1Password once they complete their transition to subscription-only. I can’t afford to lose my access to my passwords if the company decides they no long want to offer the product — or if they want to keep raising the subscription price, using my passwords as hostages.

    I’m tired of companies trying to bleed me dry with subscriptions rather than selling me a software license. I don’t want to subscribe to Microsoft Office 365, Adobe Creative Cloud, 1Password, or any other subscription-based software. As Lifehacker’s article said “Subscription Software Is Death By A Thousand Cuts.”

      Hi, not connected with Dashlane at all, just a user.
      There is a free option available (with limited features – ie no synching across devices) that you can try. Also, you can export a list of your passwords to a CSV or excel file (which reminds me I should run a new one) which lists all your passwords and user names (obviously I would recommend encrypting that).

        Thanks Alison. Unfortunately, the syncing is a major issue for me as I have an iPhone, iPad, two Mac Pros, two MacBooks, and three Windows computers (and that’s not counting servers).
