    Pros: 

    Easy to use, like the fact that it is open source, very quick and responsive design

    Cons: 

    None that I have found yet

    I really like how quick and easy the application is to use. Its simplistic design made it easy to figure out how to input information and start using it. I would recommend it to my friends and am excited to use it.

  • Pros: 

    open source, clean interface, straight development, great sync

    Cons: 

    I don’t know.

    Padlock is one of the first apps I install on my devices, because it makes my life so much easier. I can’t imagine a day without Padlock the same way I can’t imagine a day without my address book.

  • Pros: 

    Very intuitive, easy to use, and flexible.

    Cons: 

    Can't disable some notification popping up.

    Padlock is a great alternative to 1Password without any bloated functionality. It's simple to use and it does its job very well - saves passwords and other secret credentials in one place.

  • Pros: 

    Truly a gem - cross-platform, open-source, minimalistic, great security, cloud sync, free

    Cons: 

    Lack of Touch-ID support on iPhone

    Veteran user, since first version of software. Its the ultimate password/key management tool and last you'll need. On top of all, this fabulous ultimate software is free for use and cloud sync is super cheap.

    I still think author should allow users to be able to opt to trade some of security for comfort by implementing support for Touch ID and option for users to enable it.

    Pros: 

    It's open source. You can host it yourself.

    Cons: 

    None that I'm aware of. It works even without Google Play Services.

    I packaged it in a Docker image and hosted in LightSail in AWS, but now I started using their SaaS, since it's cheaper. I value their vision of open-source.

    Pros: 

    I like that it is open source and cross platform (I use Windows, OSX, and Android apps)

    Cons: 

    With the release of v2, it lost a little bit of the hotkey navigation that the Chrome app had. I liked not having to leave my keyboard

    I started using this on my phone back when it was free, I enjoyed it and thought that $4/m wasn't bad at all for cloud storage. I moved to native apps when it was announced that Chrome apps were being deprecated and I really like them. It's been a great experience so far. The app is fast and my accounts are more secure (or at least have much more complex passwords) because of it.

    Pros: 

    Minimalist and cross platform

    Cons: 

    Free unless you need to sync across devices...

    Too bad it is not clear before logging in that the Padlock cloud is not free.

  • Pros: 

    Open source, data stored on server & client, backup/restore is easy, good syncing across many clients making changes, runs on ALL platforms

    Cons: 

    Sorry, I really can't think of any

    I love how easy it is to run my own server, and there is an official Linux release!

  • Pros: 

    Easy to use! Not just for security specialists who already know everything.

    Cons: 

    On Win7 the "recently used" entries don't also show up in the alphabetical list. I would rather just have an alphabetical list.

    First password manager I could get me spouse to use after years of trying.
