Should you keep using LastPass?

Gosh, I’ve been busier than a centipede on a tightwire and now this. The big news last week is that LastPass was purchased by LogMeIn. LastPass is the #1 rated password manager that I have used for years. This caused quite a stir with many of its users, given LogMeIn’s not-favorable reputation after removing free account support from products in 2014 and starting to cross-sell products to increase revenue.

Thanks to an interview with LastPass’s CEO and Founder, Joe Siegrist, by Steve Gibson and Leo LaPorte of Security Now,  some of the misgivings may have been allayed. You can watch the 20-minute interview below.

I, for one, plan to continue to use LastPass as a premium subscriber. I trust them for their security and transparency and it will take a pretty substantial change in the way they do things to make me consider changing. Should you keep using LastPass? You be the judge.
