How to manage your passwords with Bitwarden, a LastPass alternative

Many people turn to popular services like LastPass and 1Password to help them wrangle their passwords. While solid, those services are also proprietary and closed source. So where can an open source enthusiast turn to find an alternative?

Enter Bitwarden, an application that's aiming to become the go-to open source password manager on the web.
