    I found Notepad2 and SciTE to be great minimal open source text editors. EDIT: And while I havent used it, Ive heard good things about Programmer's Notepad, also open source.

    Just taking a quick look at the source code shows they prevent you from using passwords already exposed in existing breaches, passwords must be 8 characters at a minimum, passwords dont contain the username, and that they are using argon2 for password hashing. So at least proper care has been taken to secure users' passwords.

    There is also a merge request open for implementing two factor auth.

    I havnt dived into the actual services, but it looks like Tildes is using Redis, Postgres and Rabbitmq. I would hope that the connections to these services are secured.
