Is Bitwarden a credible password manager?

So as of right now, I don’t really use password managers, i’ve tried lasspass a bit, but I was skeptical especially after what I read about them in terms of using them to store everything.

Then I did some more research, heard about Dashlane, 1password, etc. Both seem alright, but I haven’t heard many recommendations actually looking around for Dashlane, and i’ve heard some people don’t really like 1password, so idk.

I look into Keepass a bit too, and it sounds good, but frankly, it’s a bit of an eyesore for sure, and the setup process does seem a bit intimidating to be honest, but I have heard from those who use it that it’s secure atleast.

Then I heard about Bitwarden, which i’ve heard high praise about, atleast initially.

After doing some extra research, I discovered there was an issue that lead to a lot of issues awhile ago, it was apparently patched, but I still am unsure if it is a safe manager or not? I’ve heard some people who still deeply support it, and some who believe the devs are incompetent at this point, so i’m unsure what to think, especially without any 3rd party audits I could find.

But I do really like pretty much everything else about Bitwarden besides my worries about it, which I guess are amplified as someone who, again, doesn’t really use password managers.

So Tl;dr, how good is Bitwarden, and how safe is it? At the very least, is it more safe than not using a password manager? I have been trying to educate myself on the password manager field, but there is quite a lot to take in i’ll admit.

thanks in advance.

Is GeoTag on phone photos a secure thing?

I recently changed my phone, and I imported all my old photos (the oldest one is 10 years old). I discover that ALL my photos shooted with a phone are geotagged. It’s incredible the precision of the GeoTag, if I zoom on the map I could see the exact point where the photo was shooted, also the “ten years old” one. But if I send a photo to someone, also in his “Photo details” there’s my GeoTag?

Dualboot windows + linux. Drive question.

Hi. I want to dualboot windows and linux. And I want to use the linux distro as a “private” and “anonymous” drive.

Will it be sufficient enough to partition the drive or will I use a new SSD to remain private?

Thanks

android storage – apps having full access

Hey guys

There have been a few questions here about android storage and apps having full access but we aren’t really there yet with a solution..

Basically a LOT of apps require access to storage which gives them full access to your filesystem, is there a place in the filesystem that is safe?

If not, whats the solution for hiding nudes? I dont trust one of those “private gallery” apps
