It's inevitable most likely. Time to get the old dusty book out and start writing our passwords in it again like loan sharks keeping track of clients

I'm pretty sure there was a story about a password manager being hacked. Couldn't find a source on it... Definitely something to be concerned about.

It is like anything though you are going to fall into one of two camps.

 

1.) Use one weak password on every site or a slight variation of that password between sites. That is easy to get access to and once its leaked in one site people can login to your whole world.

2.) Set a master password with Lastpass, i dont use my normal email address as the account login i use a different email address i use no where to help for additional security when login plus 2FA.

 

But i guess you have to look at it this way a company like a Forum that you use your password which could be a variation of your normal password gets hacked.

Well its a forum no offence to LTT but Forums usually don't have the best security and encryption.

 

I am assuming a company like lastpass who's business is 100% about securing passwords its going to have one hell of a system in security that encrypted vault of passwords per user.

Let's face it if they fail to keep that security up to date their business is gone overnight, they have an incentive to make sure encryption and security is #1 on the list.

If a Forum gets hacked you get a little notice to say you should change your password, is the Forum gone.. of course not.

 

I have all my passwords unique on all my sites with them all very long random letters, numbers and symbols so cracking those passwords will likely take a lifetime.

 

Links to the security, as a consumer you get this all for free as well, there is no reason to not look after your security :)
