Good piece about browser password managers; they’re convenient but not as secure, feature-rich, or ubiquitous as dedicated ones.

Quoting Michael Crandell, Bitwarden CEO, from PC Mag writer Neil J. Rubenking:

“The limitation of browser-based password managers is that they work only within a walled garden. If you ever need to operate in another browser, or some environment where that browser doesn’t reach, you’re out of luck.”

Be careful about locking yourself into any single big company’s walled garden,” warned Crandell.

Avoiding platform lock-in is tricky but necessary.
