Re: When will they learn...

True, but I had a list of user names and passwords that I kept before, locally. When Sony was hacked and my account was potentially compromised, the email and password combination used at Sony was also being used at 8 other sites, including Paypal.

Rather than try and manage over 60 different very secure, unique passwords for each site I accessed, I decided to try a password locker, and LastPass made the cut after reviewing a few.

The biggest factor for me with LastPass is the convenience it offers. I'm not protecting Fort Knox here, and any compromise would be an annoyance, but it would not be a life changing disaster for me. I'll never tell anyone what they should use, I'll only say what works for me.
