    After watching the segment on LastPass in the video above.
    Think I'll just stick with it

    To a security noob like me, and the way Gibson explains it (he is awesome at normal speak), it doesn't look like anyone who has access to my encrypted vault has a snowballs chance in hell of getting in.

    The only way, is to KNOW my master password.
    I see that as being the only weakness.

    Seriously, if you've got a bit of time, watch it.
    Takes about an hour to cover encryption and it's application to LP.

    Oh, and you can download the encrypted copy and the hash/key generation tools, to run it all locally if you wish.

    So, if you're on unfamiliar turf without access to the internet, and don't want to log in at an internet cafe or whatever, you can run it all locally on a device.

    EDIT: You can actually generate One Time Passwords, so the above doesn't even matter.
    Even if they have a keylogger, the password won't work anymore.

    I'm more than sold.

    So what makes LP so awesome? Serious q, because at the moment EW seem to do what I want, but i may be missing something.....

    In my opinion...

    Very easy - most important to me
    Platform agnostic
    Seamless cloud syncing of DB
    Autofill login
    Form fill
    TouchID
    VERY secure
    One Time Passwords
    2-Factor Auth
    Security audit
    Can automatically update passwords for sites that support it
    More aesthetically pleasing than eWallet (feels like Windows 95)
    Local execution (can disconnect from the cloud)
    And on and on...
    Just... easy(er).

    I find it super usable, and kinda lost without it.
    eWallet is fine, I just found that it never worked fit into my 'workflow' as easily as LP (or 1P from what I hear)

    I've got all that except 2 factor auth, one time passwords (wassat?) security audit and cloud sync is via drop box, which I why I don't do it.
    I'm definitely lost without it, I have lots of 10 digit random passwords stored.
    It's cheaper, though.
    I'll look into those other two but the thought of the hassle of transferring the info to a new system is putting me off.

    Sure.

    I guess it's like... a Windows or Mac laptop
    They both kinda do the same thing, but which one would you have and why?

    Migration isn't so bad.
    Give you an opportunity to strengthen and clean your entries as well.
    Do 10 a night and it won't take too long.

    One time password...
    Going travelling and worried about logging in with your master password on a public computer?
    Just pre-issue yourself with as many as you want.
    Each one expires after it is used once - so keyloggers are useless.

    Don't know if I'll ever use it, but it's there.

    Security audit is actually very good.
    Checks your accounts and lets you know if they've had any breaches, so you can update your creds.
    Warns you of weak or duplicate passwords
    Old passwords etc.

    EDIT: And again, this is just my opinion.
    I've used eWallet, we use KeePass at work.
    I prefer LastPass by a country mile.
    thro loves 1password.
    It seems to do what LP does, but he's more comfortable with where the data is kept.

    As does Magilla, and KeePass.

    I just had a look and it is slicker than eWallet.
    The only thing that makes me nervous is that with the convenience of the cloud comes the risk of hacking. Maybe 1password will solve that.

    But then I remember that I use keychain on mac, which stores my passwords on the cloud, so why would I worry about Lastpass....
    Infact, Lastpass sounds like it works a bit like keychain in terms of auto filling info as you move around the web.

    I guess the important thing is I have my passwords secure, anything else is just convenience improvements.

    Good luck hacking your LastPass vault. Check out the first video I posted (and the time stamp) to see what and how they've implemented their encryption.

    Timing seems odd.

    Pretty interesting though.

    I can't be bothered trawling through this whole thread, so can someone please recommend a person or business I can take my laptop and smartphone to, to update and improve security measures. South of river preferably but if you insist I can travel. TIA.
