Not related to the topic but I'm too curious not to ask, why 56 days ?
Two cycles of the moon....?
Every 8 weeks...habit from military: 7, 14, 28, 56, 184, 336-day maintenance schedules...electronics/IT adopted from aircraft maintenance world since some of these systems deal with aircraft or are on aircraft.
8 weeks is when the dust has accumulated enough in the filters and case to need cleaning.
I knew some logic was behind that seemingly random number. Thanks, now I can sleep peacefully
I'm intrigued: why not every 2 month then? (E.g. 3-d Friday of every even month)
Sorry for off-topic.
The Mx schedule doesn't use the Gregorian calendar; it uses Julian dates (YYDDD) YY=00-99, DDD=1-366
Julian dates in fractions of 7*2^3!
My sleep is peaceful as well!
Been through the mill, tried Dashlane, tried Sticky Password, tried Passwordbox. Come back to LastPass as the only thing that works (for me).
One more for 1password here, having moved from lastpass. 1password is perhaps not as slick and functional as Lastpass, but it does what I need it to do on the workstation only and I can keep my own data locally. I havent tried any of the others, but have purchased 1password as they had a decent deal on at the time
Same here. And the big advantage is the Lastpass works on all my various devices without any problems. Syncing the database for various devices is certainly possible with, e.g., Keepass via , e.g., Dropbox - but this means that its alleged security advantage no longer exists as your data is also in the cloud.
Thus, I will keep using Lastpass as long as they don't change their business model for the worse.
Yeap, the only service with a wide coverage of different OS/devices and plenty of features and options. So, Lastpass is a keeper.
If it's strongly encrypted on your device, does it matter?
No, it doesn't. I just mentioned it as some people argue that using a cloud-based password manager is pure recklessness.
I see the same thing, which begs the question, why does it matter?
It only matters if you're using a lousy master password.

Thanks for this; definitely an improvement over email notification.
Flaws found in LastPass password manager by security researchers.
How can you trust anyone with this "feature"?
A password manager is a software application that helps a user store and organize passwords.
Trust is a concept, not an absolute.
Note that the post states LastPass has already fixed all of the listed flaws.

Anyone already analysed this claims?
Can you be more specific? The post states that LastPass has already fixed the flaws that were discovered. What needs to be analyzed?
There are a number of things which can be down to harden LastPass, such as never saving the master password in the plugin logon window, not saving a "one time user password" locally, making the master password sufficiently complex to prevent "guessing" (and not using that password anywhere else), increasing the number of "password iterations", using the LastPass security challenge to eliminate duplicate and weak passwords, enabling two factor authentication, etc.
