Time to Drop LastPass? The Most Irresponsible, Idiotic Post Ever!

<rant>

I have not blogged for a while, but I feel my blood is boiling at such an irresponsible call by MakeUseOf, a site I used to respect:

It’s Time to Drop LastPass: How to Migrate to a Better Password Manager

As a long-time LastPass user, my first reaction was panic: yet another breach?  But no such thing.  This article simply goes on providing step-by-step instructions  on how to switch from LastPass to  1PasswordDashlane, or KeePass, should you so wish.  But why?  Who knows.  I can’t find any reference to a new LastPass breach, bug, or any issue not already known/remedied a long time ago.

But why?  Who knows.  I can’t find any reference to a new LastPass breach, bug, or any issue not already known/remedied a long time ago.   What I do know is that the safety, integrity of the central password manager is critical for all of us, and moving to another provider is …well, kind of a Big Deal.

Which is why such crap calls are utterly irresponsible.  I lost all respect for MakeUseOf.
