If you’ve been living under a rock, then you may not have heard that Yahoo had another billion passwords hacked. I don’t know how many passwords Yahoo has in total, but I think it’s safe to assume that if you’ve ever had a Yahoo email account, it’s been hacked. I know a few people who got their Amazon accounts hacked and people had bought stuff with the account. My wife said Amazon emailed her to let her know her email address and password was publicly posted on a web site. The point is – GO CHANGE YOUR PASSWORDS!
I’ve been using Lastpass now for months and have been happy with it. Sure there are some sites that it has issues with, but for the most part, it’s fine. While I haven’t changed all of my passwords, I’ve changed most of my bank passwords and have no idea what the passwords are unless I view it in Lastpass (which is a good thing.) So take some time during the holidays to change your passwords.
