LastPass, Security best practice, Two-factor authentication, Yubikey
Better, but I’m not there yet. Truth is, I haven’t been working on the existing passwords and there are now many, many sites that I no longer even log into. I did my first LastPass Security Challenge on July 11, 2010 and reported on it in this article: I Just Scored 55.7% on the LastPass Security Challenge. Here are my key results this time:
Top strength rating for passwords is 100% – my average is 63.9% Yikes!
24 unique passwords are used on more than one site – a definite no-no.
101 sites are using duplicate passwords – some of these are OK, but poor practice.
29 of my passwords score below 50% strength rating.
Average password length is 9.1 characters – 10 characters would be better.
One key factor that has greatly improved: Multifactor Authentication Score is 7/10. That’s probably due to my using the Yubikey.
