I use it currently, but I’ve seen a few people say it’s bad for privacy or something? Is this true? If so, what alternatives do you suggest?
Privacy has become a very important issue in modern society, with companies and governments constantly abusing their power, more and more people are waking up to the importance of digital privacy.
In this community everyone is welcome to post links and discuss topics related to privacy.
much thanks to @gary_host_laptop for the logo design :)
Bitwarden uses MicroSoft SQL Server as the only DB server option.
It is also the one they run on their main service, so it is not fully FLOSS and I would not consider that DB server reliable at all given its nature.
As Helix pointed before, there is a fully FLOSS replacement compatible with API and clients called Vaultwarden, which is also written in Rust and allow MySQL/MariaDB and PostgreSQL DB servers AFAIR.
Bitwarden is fine from a privacy standpoint so keep using it if you like it.
I use and recommend KeePassXC.
