As an SRE Engineer Background, I was shopping around for the best password managers. Finding some potentially good candidates for holding passwords / 2FA and sharing them easily with my Family or Teams.

I. Goals

This document just gives a quick overview of some of the password managers out there, here’s my list of my personal requirements:

  • Team / Family management: Adding and sharing made easy.
  • Pricing: Not excessive for a small group of people
  • Expose Public API: Useful for CI/CD Pipelines / system users
  • 2FA integration: Handy when you can share 2FA with your Team / Family directly.
  • Audit Logs usage: Who did what
  • “Cloud” solution without files management (KeePassX for instance).
  • Mobile App
  • Browser Extension
  • Reddit Community Feeling reviews (Very subjective to my personal review)
