TOP password managers for Linux desktop

A password manager is a very useful tool for generating unique passwords and secure storage so you don't have to remember. See below for the best password managers available for Linux desktop.

Passwords are everywhere. The website, forums and web apps require you to create accounts and a password. The problem is with the password. Keeping the same password for different accounts puts your security at risk because in case of hacking a website, hacker try the same combination of email and password as others websites.

However, keeping unique passwords for all new accounts means that you have to remember them and this is not possible for normal people. This is the point assisted by password managers.

Password management applications suggest / create strong passwords for you and store them in an encrypted database. You just have to remember the master password for the password manager.

The main modern web browser programs like Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome have a built-in password manager. This helps, but you can only use it in their web browser.

But there are third-party developers, specialized password managers, and some of them also provide native desktop applications for Linux. In this article, we analyze the best password managers available for Linux.

Password Managers for Linux

  1. Bitwarden


  • Open Source
  • Free for personal use (upgradeable payable options available)
  • End-to-end encryption for Cloud servers
  • Cross-platform
  • Available Browser Extensions
  • Command line tools

Bitwarden is one of the most impressive password managers for Linux. I will be honest, I did not know about this until now - and I have already made the transition from LastPass. I was able to easily import data from LastPass without any problems and it had no problems.

The premium version costs just $ 10 / year - which is well worth it. This is an open source solution and you can host it on your own server and create a password solution for your organization.

Apart from that, you have all the necessary features like 2FA for login, import / export options for credentials you, fingerprint phrase (a unique key), password generator and more.

You can upgrade your account as an organization account for free so you can share them information with 2 users overall. However, if you want additional encrypted storage and the ability to exchange passwords with 5 users, high upgrades are available starting at $ 1 per month. I think it's worth it!

  1. Buttercup

password managers


  • Open Source
  • Free, no premium options
  • Cross-platform
  • Available Browser Extensions

Another open source password manager for Linux. Buttercup may not be a very popular solution - but if you are looking for a simpler alternative to storing your credentials, this would be a good start. Unlike some others, you do not need to be skeptical about cloud servers because this is for use only Offline and supports cloud sources such as dropbox, OwnCloud, Nextcloud and WebDAV. Therefore, you can select the cloud source if you need to synchronize the data. You have the choice for that.

3. KeePassXC

password managers


  • Open Source
  • Simple password manager
  • Cross-platform
  • There is no mobile support

KeePassXC belongs to the KeePassX family - which was originally a Linux port for KeePass in Windows. Unless you know that KeePassX has not been around for years - so KeePassXC is a good alternative if you are looking for a simple password manager. KeePassXC may not be the most beautiful or fantastic password manager, but it does work. It's safe and open source as well. I think doing it is worth it, what do you say?

  1. Enpass (not open source)

password managers


  • Civil use
  • Many features - including "Wearable" device support.
  • Completely free for Linux (with high quality features)

Enpass is a very popular password manager on many platforms. While not an open source solution, many people rely on it - so you can be sure it works, at least. It offers many features and if you have a mobile device, it also supports this.

  1. myki (not open source)

password managers


  • civil use
  • It avoids cloud servers for storing passwords
  • Focuses on local synchronization
  • Ability to replace passwords with Fingerprint IDs on mobile

This may not be a popular proposition - but I found it a lot interest. It is a private password manager that lets you avoid cloud servers and is based on peer-to-peer synchronization.

So, if you don't want to use any cloud server to store your information, this is for you. It is also interesting to note that the application available for Android and iOS helps you replace passwords with your fingerprint ID. If you want convenience on your mobile phone along with the basic features in a desktop password manager - this seems like a good choice. However, if you choose a premium upgrade, the plans invoicing we wouldn't say that too cheaply.
