For those of you that use the qutebrowser, what do you do for password management? I like the browser, but I don't like memorizing 250+ different passwords or shooting myself in the foot by having all my accounts have the same password.
@mike This issue has some relevant info on what people are doing https://github.com/qutebrowser/qutebrowser/issues/180
@mike I use Firefox, but I use the standard Unix pass manager and a dmenu script to copy the password into my clipboard.
I don't use a browser plugin for password management. I use the dmenu extension to pass, so accessing a password means pressing <A-p> + the first letter or two of the username and then <C-v> to paste into the password box. I guess that's *slightly* more work than a working autofill, but it's fast enough that it never bothers me.
@mike Not specific to qutebrowser, but I don't use a password manager software since I don't want any unnecessary attack surface (and I don't use the same password everywhere either, obviously).
I just copy-paste the password for any login manually, that's convenient enough for me.
A few passwords and passphrases (that I need often) I have memorized, so I rarely need the file anyway.
@mike on a related note, do all logins need the same level of password strength?
Since different systems enforce different rules, password strengths would need to vary by default.
@mike not exactly that but kinda. from a user use case point of view
@mike keepassxc, which I use with Firefox also anyway. And Syncthing to get between devices.
@mike Some people use pass, the CLI password tool
@mike I just don't have many accounts. Also use full PGP everywhere for passwords I can't remeber. I put it in a .txt file.
I use pass. It has a -c switch that puts the decrypted password into your clipboard for 45 seconds.
Integrated? No, but good enough for me!
@mike you can use the autofill feature in keepassx/c. It's browser agnostic.
I don't use the browser for password management. KeepassXC in my tool of choice. Too old school? 😉
