Are automatic security updates available on TailsOS?
Would be better/safer?

For secure DNS have a look at this thread:

Why 2 password managers (Bitwarden and LastPass) ?
LastPass had its share of issues and I would not recommend it anymore:

LastPass had its share of issues and I would not recommend it anymore:
Yes it has Automatic updates. See here: Tails - News
it leaves no traces after removing USB stick from PC and other devices.
Yes its greatest safer than others. There is no 100% safety but Tails OS gives a magic privacy. It runs TOR

I just used LastPass but i am not user of it anymore. Yes it had issues and i left it.

Thanks for links.
