I've been using Last pass for the better part of a year now across all my devices, and the complaints I do have are very few and far between.
If you're wanting a place to freely keep and autofill passwords without much thought, you want Last pass. They check every box from features to security, and were designed to get every-day computer users into the habit of relying on password generators, with extras like notifications when data in your vault is located in data breaches.
While I can't bring myself to make excuses for companies whose one and only job is storing sensitive data waking up to a pwned server, I have mad respect for the way they owned up to it, immediately notified their customers and completely overhauled their infrastructure before finding out that no user-facing data was actually leaked. All the attacker managed to grab was encrypted blobs that aren't going to do much good, a considerable feat in and of itself when you consider their routine security audits. I'd happily go for we've gotten hacked but it didn't matter any day of the week.
Defender is right, and this is why I'd advise against switching right now if you don't intend on making the commitment to premium.

In short they went from a free plan that did everything to almost requiring premium. I can't blame them, it's definitely affordable enough. When signing up last summer I literally went digging for reasons to upgrade and couldn't find anything worthwhile, and would wager that a significant chunk of their users did the same to the point that it's not all that profitable otherwise.
Bitwarden has always been a very close competitor, so I'm giving that a spin for a couple days until I decide whether I want to pay. Thankfully the migration process was straightforward enough.
Initial impressions? Lastpass is definitely more user friendly, and you can tell Bitwarden was designed for those who have a grip on what they're doing so I definitely wouldn't purchase a business membership.
Bitwarden is open-source and approved by the community, which is always a plus.
I like how Last pass is able to intelligently determine when you're entering new account info and ask if it should be saved without manual intervention. Last pass also has more features, granted you'll probably rarely find yourself ever using them but hey, they exist if you do.
Only time will tell what I end up choosing, both work and are good in their own right.
