I use 1 Password, and I use the browser extension.
But after the last version release a friend of mine wrote me an urgent message that I should not update because it forced him to install the browser integration (we later confirmed that this wasn’t the case…), but it got us talking, because I was already using the extension and he was not. So, this got me wondering are you guys using your password manager browser extension and why not if so?
His reasoning for not wanting it was the mainly the fear of getting you passwords stolen through websites
Because the extension would be a backdoor into my password vault.
My reasoning against it was that 1 PW for instance addresses this issue, and claims that because they keep the user “in the loop” this linking between the browser and the manager is fine
What are your thoughts?
- I use the PWM Browser extension
- I do not use it because I try to minimize the extensions, I install
- I do not use it because of other reasons
- I do not use it just because
