The maker of LastPass, a popular password manager, is being acquired by LogMeIn in a sale worth at least $110 million.

I have had bad experiences with LogMeIn. Might be time to find a new PW manager.

Pen and paper is the worst way to keep passwords. I constantly have to tell my users at work to STOP writing their passwords and leaving them lying around or putting them in unencrypted files on their computers. LastPass is/was a damn good services. Too bad LMI will probably ruin it.

PEOPLE Stop writing down passwords. It's equivalent to hiding a house key under the mat.

Or you know, the single best way to store your passwords is to memorize your darn passwords. By having it ANYWHERE other than just your memory, you are putting it at risk.

nonononono! You *cannot* possibly remember a 30+ character randomized password for *each* site you have an account at.

You people are all fools. Anyone who kicks in your door is not going to be doing so just to steal your handwritten facebook password. Unless you're actively pissing off 4chan, even a weak password is fine. Your account will be compromised due to a database leak or site exploit long before someone brute-forces it.

My Overclock.net password is a dictionary word with one number at the end of it. And even then, it would take weeks for any of you to brute force it.

Or I can snoop it because overclock.net doesn't use SSL.

Good thing I use KeePass. You can never know what will happen to your data when you store it remotely.

Why do people not like logmein? As an IT pro and someone who's familiar with remote desktop software, I have an adequate sense but I'm curious what the objective reasons are listed out for my learning pleasure of why I'm going to ditch last pass smile.gif Le sigh frown.gif
