Hello @BIgD1 . I've seen the Change Password for Sites, but haven't used it. Is it easy and simple to use? How does it work for the sites you've used it on?
I ask myself, what would be if someone would have identical number of sites stored in the Vault, with the same average password length.
Yes,i think so the one with more sites stored in LastPass If all are equal,may be the one who has the oldest LP Account would come firstI ask myself, what would be if someone would have identical number of sites stored in the Vault, with the same average password length.
Who would be the first? That one with more sites stored? It's not that impossible with so many of LastPass users...
Hacker tournaments start by testing hackers ability to compromise from remote, then progress into more direct hacking with access to the machine physically. Personally I do not have sharing of any kind activated on any password managers. But again my 'decoration' mode would defeat that because you are sharing a password without the decorations, hence useless.
You share Skype PW with Joe-Bob, which is; 4oAecs0:K1%PT"6@~~'O Knowing that is useless, as my cipher/decoration for that 'type' and 'link' is; 4oAecs0:K1%PT"6@~~'O!kype92JoT
The MANUAL salt is !kype92JoT which is based off of an undocumented, personal algorithmic method. Which is why we used this method at a defense contractor I worked for, and I believe it's a method to ensure ultimate security against all known NON-Keylogger/NON-MTM types of assaults. If someone has keyloggered you, not much you can do anyway. Atkinson was hacked with state sponsored malware, and it achieved access to her system through her clicking a file sent through email. Ultimately there isn't much you can do if you 'click' stuff randomly. Ultimately it will be revealed that Atkinson wasn't very intelligent in her use of security, passwords, and encryption.
So use a password manager, then develop your own salting/decoration method, and give yourself 'quantitative' security improvements for no cost, and little hassle. I could post my entire Lastpass database as a text file here, and it's going to do you no good unless you can brute force a 10 mixed character decoration appended to each one.
So let's all use this method, and not fuss with arguing if this or that is secure, make them all secure
Having to type those passwords is leaving them open for keyloggers to steal.I have never used a password manager nor do I see the need for it.
Like OneDay I too do not trust a password manager.
How I remember / store my passwords is for me alone to know, I am not telling
I keep my car keys & my house keys on my person. I do not have some one to hold them for me.
Why will I want a password manager to hold my passwords for me ?
I too have quite a few logins with different password for all logins.
I too have complicated passwords & I too can not possibly remember them in my mind.
I will never ever write my passwords on paper.
But there are also other digital ways of remembering & storing passwords.
I like bare minimum programs installed on my computer which is why I do not want a password manager.
