Mitro, the open source password manager for individuals and teams, is shutting down on Aug 31, 2015. If you are a Mitro user, you might feel sad to see it go. But you don’t have a choice to keep it alive. Mitro will soon be gone and it’s time for you to move on.
If you are wondering where to move on to, try Zoho Vault:
Zoho Vault, is an online password manager that comes with an extremely easy-to-use interface, advanced team sharing features, cross-platform support, rock-solid security and complete data privacy.
Mitro got off to a flying start but …
Here is the backstory of this poignant moment. Though the shutdown announcement came only a couple of days ago, Mitro had been showing signs of trouble for quite some time. Launched in 2013, Mitro had the backing of institutional investors including Google ventures and Angel investors. Exactly a year ago, Twitter acquired Mitro. Despite the strong backing, there were no major updates or changes to the product during the past year.
We respect Mitro for what they have delivered so far. Mitro enjoyed a great start and delivered a nice product – a little password manager. In the process, got acquired by Twitter and lost steam thereafter. A victim of cloud consolidation? Or yet another case of acquisition failure?
On the other hand, Zoho Vault, which was launched during the same time as Mitro, has been going strong with great feature additions and product upgrades. Today, Zoho Vault, an integral part of the Zoho suite of deeply integrated products, is trusted by thousands of customers – individuals and organizations – across the globe. Zoho suite has been in the market for the past ten years and commands the trust of more than 13 million users.
Whatever be the cause for Mitro’s shutting down, we can assure you one thing: With us, you will not face acquisition fall outs. Private and bootstrapped since our founding – we don’t answer to anyone but you. We never will. We’re here for you, for the long haul.
