    I am in the process of managing all my many passwords to different sites. I've been using DashLane but it doesn't sync across multiple devices without paying for a subscription. I also don't like how the program seems to have a different interface for both windows and mac :(

    Anyone got any suggestions for good free ones?

    I personally like pass and use QtPass as gui on my KDE installation... but I guess that's not an option for you.

    I guess not! I feel like setting up my own syncing system and just reuploading/downloading the spreadsheet file each time I need the latest version. Problem is storing it online on a server is just going to be a security risk.

    that's why I like pass... it gpg encrypts by default... you get access through ssh/cli or gui client... integrated git to sync among several devices...

    Hmm interesting. I'll definitely consider it then.

    I use KeepassX on Ubuntu 16.04 and macOS, they use the same interface.
    They sync with DropBox and the work really well.

    I've been pondering, Win 10 supports now a Linux Subsystem (still has to be enabled though)... but with that linux subsystem one should gain easy access to pass and stuff. So pass (Password Store) shuld now also be easy to use on Windows.

    The sticky password manager is the best, which helps in syncs data automatically.

    Are these password managers reliable? I just don't feel safe having all my passwords in one place. Nothing is 100% secure when something is on the internet.

    define reliable? Pass is a "simple" bash scripts that creates gpg encrypted files in an easy and convenient manner. Git can be used to sync passwords among different devices.... the only drawback is, that the filenames are not encrypted but cleartext.... so you might not want to track them with public git.
