Nextcloud Passwords

Nextcloud Passwords Features

I have tried Nextcloud Passwords a couple of times in the past, but I didn’t really feel that it offered the same polish as the LastPass apps that I have been using for the last 4 – 5 years.

I have used the pro version of LastPass in the past but didn’t feel that I was benefiting that much from it. So I decided to go back to the free version and have been happy with it ever since.

I got an email last month from LastPass. informing me of upcoming changes to their pricing structure. This meant, if I wanted to continue using LastPass, I would have to upgrade my account and pay. I used LastPass on multiple devices as many people do.

I have a Nextcloud instance running on my home server, so I had another look at the Passwords app and accompanying Android and Chrome apps. I was pleasantly surprised this time around.

I quickly exported my passwords from LastPass, deleted the passwords and closed the account. I then easily imported the passwords into my Nextcloud instance, chose the apps that I would use to connect to my account and use them for my self hosted. encrypted password system.

It’s all working just as well as LastPass, with the added benefit of my passwords not being on someone else’s server. My Data on My Server that I Control. Couldn’t be happier. 🙂

Nextcloud Passwords – Android

The Android app, I went with was the Nextcloud Passwords app by Jonas Blatt, available on the Google Play Store. It has everything that I needed. It supports end-to-end encryption, Dark mode and works flawlessly. At the time of writing this article, the app had 1000+ installs and a footprint of 26MB

There is another app called NextCloud Passwords by daper, also available on the Google Playstore. The app has more installs, 5000+ it also has a smaller footprint, 10MB, but seems to be having problems with end-to-end encryption at the time I was trying the apps.
