Is it safe to store LastPass master password in the cloud (e.g. Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive)?

Is it safe to store LastPass master password in the cloud? I mainly use Google Drive and Microsoft's OneDrive. Two-factor authentication is used in both.

The master Password isn't saved locally on my computer and I have printed MP to several pages which I keep in a safe place. Cloud would be the optimal solution for "backup".

If you do then why not store all passwords in same place? Sure LastPass makes it tad easier but whats the point if you don't remember your passwords anyway? I remember (almost) all of my passwords and use lastpass to tell which ones go where and are with what usernames. Its better that you store it somewhere else. And just password, nothing else. So if someone steals it, they know its pw but don't know to what.

If your going to do that, zip em up, encrypt em with a really strong password preferably 60 or more characters including symbols and spaces. And do like a Cesar cypher to the passwords, I hope this helps :)

And if you want to store them on your computer check out avg safe thingy,

#Determine if advice was helpful
def was_helpful(advice):
  if advice >= 8:
    return True
  else:
    return False

helpfulness = input("Was I very helpful (1-10)?")
try:
  helpfulness = int(helpfulness)
  if helpfulness < 11 and helpfulness > 0:
    if was_helpful(helpfulness):
      print("Glad I was helpful")
    else:
      print("That's a shame")
  else:
    print("Provide a number between 1-10 next time...")
  except:
    "You did not provide a number"

I keep all my passwords in a password manager and never have main accounts in there though

NO, buy no MEANS Store a Master Password digitally your mind is the only save place!

And a cloud solution by a 3rd party is the worst!

Just copy it to a USB flash drive, then you'll always have it when you need it. Storing it on the cloud is like leaving your car running with the doors unlocked. You're just welcoming criminals access to what is yours.

Just memorize it.... If you need to write it out by hand on a piece of paper 30 times over a couple days a week to memorize it then just do that.

Just to ensure: can I save the master password to LastPass vault? I need it when I make changes to my account (enabling multi-factor authentication etc.) for example. Copying it from there would save me some effort.

Don't use LastPass. They have a nasty history of breaches.

No more vulnerable than any other service that uses security questions.

Make it a passphrase using xkpasswd.net and then memorize it.

Please, there haven't been a single breach. Even the staff can't see user's password vault.

Use 1Password. I assume you're using a Mac.

 

If you're not using a Mac I believe a similar effect can be achieved on Windows by

throwing your Windows PC out the window and getting a Mac.
