I am concerned about something. I would like to install a Password manager called KeepassXC, it's a free and open source community maintained version of KeepassX. I am debating whether to use the
.AppImage or the
.snap package for the installation process found on their downloads page.
I've successfully downloaded and verified the
.AppImage package. I thought I remember seeing an article that said that
.snap packages are automatically verified when downloaded and installed on your system. Is this true? I understand that
.AppImage packages do not require root access to run. Snap packages however do. I also heard that
.snap packages are dying and are not very popular since Unity 8 died. Which one is more secure? Does Canonical maintain and review
.snap packages? Which one is better in your opinion? I have barely used both of these. I've only downloaded and used a
.snap package once so I'm not too familiar or an expert when it comes to these types of packages. I would like to know the difference and pros and cons of these two types of packages security wise. Thanks!
