Good bye LastPass

I’ve been using LastPass for 7 years or more and I have converted various business and people to use LastPass but that ended today. I’m a security minded person so I’m not abandoning passwords managers, just LastPass.

A few days ago I woke up and my LastPass vault looked like this:

That looks bad… I contacted support which took about a day to tell me “Oh, yeah, your Vault is corrupted, don’t worry about it, we logged you out and fixed it. Just log back in.”

Pfiuuuu! I thought. That was a nerve wracking unproductive day, but at least LastPass support eventually showed up and fixed it…. NOPE!!!! It was still corrupt. I sent about 30 more emails to LastPass over a period of 4 days after that and I got no response.

I did manage to revert my vault back to the last master password I used, which thankfully wasn’t changed so long ago so I didn’t lose that many passwords and also thankfully I still remember that master password. But this is completely unacceptable behavior from LastPass to a paying user, so that’s it, I’m done with LastPass.

Any recommendations on password managers?

    You were given the reason why that happened?

      They said it was a sync corruption.

    I personally suggest a variant of KeePass. You can be creative about sync but at least it’s software libre and you can be sure nobody, except yourself, can access the passwords.

    Own brain is the right place! For random sites i used random password generators and let my browser remember for a while until i hit the reset password button.
