No wonder it's tempting to turn to apps and services that promise to keep track of your passwords.If your master password is compromised, all your accounts potentially go with it.One such service, LastPass, says it has detected "suspicious activity". Although it says it found no evidence that individual passwords or user accounts were breached, it's advising users to change their LastPass master password. I advise users instead to rely less on just passwords. Don't name that file "password".Web browsers from Apple and Google have built-in mechanisms for storing frequently used passwords.Many services also let you sign in with your Facebook or other ID instead of generating new passwords each time. After you enter your regular password, you type in the code you receive on your phone to verify that it's really you.It's much easier to hack into an email account to reset passwords.Also be careful when creating security questions to reset passwords.
