RememBear, the password manager, throws in the towel

0 0

Not everyone can find a place in the market, according to its creators…

In a new blog post published yesterday, the developers of TunnelBear, the famous VPN, have just announced that they are abandoning their other flagship software: RememBear. This password manager was available on most platforms: Mac and iPhone on the Apple side, but also Android and Windows. According to the publisher, its program would not have succeeded in facing the competition dominated by 1Password or Dashlane.

Launched in 2018, RememBear explains that at the time many users had already chosen their identifier management solution so that it was difficult to make them switch to an alternative. As a final point, the project team therefore prefers to stop it rather than continuing to work on its improvement at the risk of not providing enough effort to guarantee its security .

What changes if you use RememBear

TunnelBear adds that RememBear will still be available for download for its current users for almost a year, until July 18, 2023 more precisely. However, new customers are no longer accepted. In addition, in the case of a paid subscription expiring, it will not be possible to renew it either.

A consolation gift, the Premium plan is also offered to all users , even if they only had a free offer until then. As for accounts already subscribed, they will simply be refunded on a pro rata basis. Finally, be aware that no additional functionality or design improvements will be released in the next twelve months, unlike support and security patches, in case of concern.

The 1Password Alternative

If you like RememBear but now need to find another password manager for your Mac or iPhone, 1Password is a paid alternative that has more or less the same assets. Among the other similar and cross-platform software , we also find Enpass, which appealed to us the most during our test, or even Secrets (excellent quality/price ratio) and Bitwarden. Firefox Lockwise has also closed its doors , but Safari also offers its own password management system developed by Apple. A tool that is improving with iOS 16.
