Bitwarden vs Apple Keychain vault behavior

I am oscilating between the 2 password managers at this stage. Now I know that Bitwarden is Open Source and this is one of the reasons that is considered more secure but, as far as I know, Apple is also pretty invested in keeping things secure.

The issue that I noticed with Bitwarden is that I have a tendancy to keep the Vault open because, well, if it’s locked then Autofill is out the window. On the other hand with Keychain it’s always there and all I have to do is used Touch ID/Face ID to use it (and it’s faster too).

I know that Bitwarden has some biometrics settings (which for now I have yet to be able to enable), but at least from my PoV / experience, the vault stays open longer than the Keychain and this kind of mitigates the security aspect.

What are your thoughts on this?
