Great to see competition in this area.

@tomflemming Very true!

Does this now or will it support sharing groups of passwords?

@nathanpalmer You can share (and sync) the whole account. But not just some of your passwords.

@nathanpalmer I am working on a project called Tillid, tillid.io, based on this specific use case.

@maxence_dalmais @nathanpalmer 1Password allows for the creation of shared "vaults" that can contain specific passwords (and permissions) on those passwords. Just FYI.
Maxence Dalmais@maxence_dalmais
@ryanminnick @nathanpalmer thanks for the tips. The problem with sharing password, is that you need to change it when your trainee or any body leave your company.
Ryan Minnick@ryanminnick · Platform and other things @ taxadmin.org
I would recommend detailing security/encryption implemented on your product site. Anyone that realizes they should be using a password manager should also be looking for an understanding on how that information is secured.

How does this compare to apps like Enpass or 1Password in terms of usability, price, privacy and security?

@tomflemming Avast Passwords is free for all of your devices (including iOS, Android and PC). Privacy and security is in Avast DNA ;)
@tomflemming Do you plan on monetising it in some way?

@hellishpm @tomflemming Awesome, please kick 1Passwords butt!!

@praneethrv I'm curious why 1Password has rubbed you the wrong way?
Praneeth Reddy@praneethrv · Founder
@chadwhitaker Way too pricey - competition always brings down prices, always!
Martin Bratteng@martinbratteng · CEO @ Nordic Light Media AS
@praneethrv 1Password is pricey? $2.99/month, and they give you 6 months free. That's far from pricey. Just buy 1 or 2 sodas/ coffee's less each month.

@hellishpm - Great product, tried it and now removed it. I'm very certain that I'll use it again soon. The reason for my removal is the lack of "Import" options from other password managers. I'm using "Dashlane" -- it's my favorite. If you could add a better option to import passwords (at least as CSV files).It will be great for many of the users. Keep up your great work.
Arun Pattnaik@arunpattnaik · UX'er for web startups, maker of things.
@ramkumarhq @hellishpm +1 for Dashlane. Their password changer works like magic!
Pietz Prove@gopietz · Media Computer Science Student
@arunpattnaik @ramkumarhq @hellishpm i like Dashlane as well but i also really hate subscriptions. im at a point were i accept subscriptions for "services" but Dashlane is an off the shelf software im not willing to subscribe to. im still in the 1password boat and i have no reason to switch as of right now. i do like competition. go avast.
Ram@ramkumarhq · Startups Lover, Business Consultant
@gopietz @arunpattnaik @hellishpm -- Yeah true, they have a dashlane premium to earn money...but even their free dashlane service is much better than others..:) I love how it pops out and fills the password.. I noticed avast is also similar to dashlane atleast in filling up, I'm definitely moving to avast password manager once they include a better import options... NOTE TO AVAST: PLEASE ADD "IMPORT PASSWORD" FROM OTHER PASSWORD MANAGER, as most of them will be happy to move to avast now...good luck

@ramkumarhq @hellishpm I'm a Dashlane user also. Its pretty great but the $40/year always felt a little extortionary. Switching costs are so high in this category I bet they see very little churn.
Pietz Prove@gopietz · Media Computer Science Student
@ramkumarhq @hellishpm any specific features you get with Dashlane but not with 1Password? just curious, filling out passwords is essentially at 1passwords core.
Ram@ramkumarhq · Startups Lover, Business Consultant
@gopietz @hellishpm -- hmm i don't think 1password have a free version ($3/month is what i see), so I didn't try it in the first place..:) Dashlane Free version works great, so I've been using it for a very long time...didn't like other password managers because of their boring User interface, poor fluidity (logging in/ creating new account) and didn't have a free version to use..:) Avast password looked good (on par with the dashlane), so I might try it in future..
