Long time happy user of 1Password. My concerns started when they took some initial large VC funding. Being what I thought was a profitable slow growing company, taking that funding seemed odd. I know what must come after VC, growth at all costs.

Next 1Password dropped it’s native macOS applications in favor of Electron based versions. Apparently it was too costly to make macOS focused apps now. The first peak at the coming growth/profit push.

Next they announce even more VC funding and then the final nail for me, deals with “crypto” companies. So I am looking for a new password manager.

Bitwarden is probably the closest alternative that is cross platform and supports shared vaults, but it’s UX is clunky and lacking compared to 1Password. Guess I get to spend time evaluating available alternatives.
