Re: When will they learn... »threatpost.com/en_us/blogs/lastp···h-050511
I was interested in LastPass till I read this, and after that one article it was enough to convince me not to store any such data online period. It's a inconvenience but better than changing over 50 logins.
You should do some more research on LastPass and how it works. There is a single login that is encrypted and your account can be locked only to specific devices that you use. It manages over 50 logins, each completely different and even I couldn't tell you what any of them are off the top of my head.
Changes have been made since the suspected activity that may have resulted in a breach back in 2011.
All of your passwords are stored online at the site where you use it. Hopefully they are all encrypted. After Sony had their Playstation accounts hacked, I decided to use a service that would make it simple to generate very secure passwords that were all unique to each individual site I accessed, while making it an effortless process to log in.
Nothing is completely secure as long as humans are part of the design, implementation, and maintenance.
I do not, have not, and will not work for AT&T/Comcast/Verizon/Charter or similar sized company.
True, but I had a list of user names and passwords that I kept before, locally. When Sony was hacked and my account was potentially compromised, the email and password combination used at Sony was also being used at 8 other sites, including Paypal.
Rather than try and manage over 60 different very secure, unique passwords for each site I accessed, I decided to try a password locker, and LastPass made the cut after reviewing a few.
The biggest factor for me with LastPass is the convenience it offers. I'm not protecting Fort Knox here, and any compromise would be an annoyance, but it would not be a life changing disaster for me. I'll never tell anyone what they should use, I'll only say what works for me.

I am just going to stick to Keepass.
I tried that, but it didn't work for me nearly as well as LastPass. I love the online, cross-platform ease of use.
Even Steve Gibson gives LastPass his endorsement.
I'm sticking with what I feel is the far superior solution for me.
