If you live not close to a rock, you would know that passwords are a very big problem for users. We all have tens of websites and apps that need our passwords. Many end up replicating passwords accross websites since they find it hard to get complex passwords that cannot be easily guessed and also have one for each.
Thus the reason many use password managers. But are they safe? Sometime mid last year, the most prominent password manager Lastpass got hacked, and of course this meant getting compromised. The same service now faces a phishing attack that this time tricks users into giving up access by way of email and 2 factor authentication.
Knowing well that it doesn’t end there. is it time we took a pause with them password managers and waited for these services to implement password-less access in the large scale?
