If you are using the Free LastPass read below

Wow, that is a huge change on their side. Although it will not effect me as much as other people, I only use it on my Desktop computer. But no matter how it effects me it sucks that they have chosen to go that way, my guess is that they will lose quit a few users because of this, despite the low prices they have ... for now. Guess those people might change to something like Bitwarden. ( It looks good, although probably not as good as Lastpass. )

Switched from Lastpass to Bitwarden password manager. It is nice that the desktop version from Bitwarden can be locked and unlocked with Windows Hello. :)

Then again I have no idea if the Lastpass Desktop version has that option as well.

After checking out the software I replaced Safehouse Explorer with VeraCrypt. From what I saw and read about VeraCrypt it is so much better then Safehouse Explorer for protecting my Documents.
Why not Bitlocker?

You can use Bitlocker in Home too, but only over command line which isn't a big deal as this is only needed once.
So should I want to try Bitlocker on Home in the future, I can simply download install it and then use it over command line like you mentioned? If so then I hope it is explained how to do that.

You don't need download nor install anything. It's already installed by default.
Yes, in internet a lot of instructions exists.

Okay, thank you should I not like VeraCrypt after a while for some reason, then I will give Bitlocker a chance.

I see you are using One Drive. If it’s the paid version, then why not use its ransomware protection and ditch Neushield.

Well Neushield Data Sentinel does more then just protect against ransomware. ( Even the free version. )

Yes I have seen the features, but I do not see anything special about it. You are using Kaspersky and it is great. I would just use One Drive and make regular backups.
