In recent days there has been a lot of reporting regarding a Data Breach at LastPass, and some of it has been quite sensational. The original incident occurred in August 2022 and LastPass has used their blog at to provide public updates.

For some time now we have been using LastPass, and certainly the news has caused us to look at other options, but without the knee-jerk reaction that some articles suggest. However, if you use LastPass then you need to consider these things and make your own decision.

The most balanced analysis I have read so far comes from Steve Gibson, of Security Now! fame and you can read the transcript at (look for the show notes link that will download and open a PDF) where you can also see video and audio of the podcast.

I also recommend you subscribe to the podcast or check back to see developments which should be mentioned in the weekly show notes – we will use the insight newsletters to help you be aware of things that we think are important.
