I know I shouldn’t use the same password for all of my sites… but I do. So I was a little alarmed when I saw the news that LinkedIn passwords may have been compromised. I think that a lot of people would probably fall into this category.
I found a tool that will check whether your password is one of the passwords that has been published at www.lastpass.com/linkedin. I seem to be safe but I thought that I should find a password solution that might be a little more secure than using a similar password across your digital footprint and/or storing as PostIt notes in Exchange.
The Last Pass product seems to be fairly good. I’m giving it a test drive. www.lastpass.com
Update: I’ve now been using KeePass for some time now. It has great support for Dropbox, iOS and Android. It seems to work really well. I’ve subsequently changed / update most of my passwords now.
