The cloud-based password management software may have been hacked and a lot of users' master passwords may have been stolen!

This is great information to know!   :happy:

Just logged onto my account for the first time in a long time and it sent me the 'hacking' email. Once I responded to the email everything was normal on my LassPass page.

I started to get LastPass but decided not to because it is cloud-based. If that server gets hacked then they can control my account.  So, I opted for Bitdefender Password Manager instead. It is only on my devices and everything is encrypted. If I lose my master password key I have to enter a series of 10 numbers to regain access! It also can remember the passwords across my devices for all sites, etc.

I use the paid version of that. Have for years. No email alerts yet. I did enable 2 part verification to add another level. Also reviewed and changed some passwords. Thanks for the heads up.
