There are stories if you run google searches - I'm not going be able to prove any of them to you nor do I have the desire to do so.ERISA Stone wrote: ↑Mon Jan 08, 2018 12:57 pmShow me proof of a password manager getting hacked that allowed the hacker(s) to get access to a user's account.DaftInvestor wrote: ↑Mon Jan 08, 2018 12:46 pmJust google "Password Manager breach" and read about the breaches at OnePass, LastLogin, etc.
Some of the most secure banks have been hacked along with one of the big-three credit report agencies - google "breach", "hacked", etc and you can find lots of stories that provide proof that security practice is very different that stated theory.
All of these companies hire some of the smartest folks and use what they think are the most secure methods.
There are also cases whereby causality will never be proven - people have their accounts infiltrated and don't know whether it is due to them having used OnePass or some other reason. Similarly there are lots of Identities stolen every year and the exact trace-backs aren't always determined (in fact they are rarely determined) - for years people will be wondering if they were the victim of Equifax's breach or a piece of paper someone picked up at an old Doctor's office. Similarly a friend of mine's house was broken into while he was on vacation - he will never know if it was because his newspaper carrier told a friend that led to this (since he had his papers held for a week), due to a post he made on Facebook (showing he was on vacation), due to someone watching his house and seeing that his car was not coming/going in a longer pattern, etc. Personally - I have had my credit card numbers stolen a number of times and have yet to know why.
Personally I limit my exposure the best I can and storing my passwords with a third party service or in a third party software product will increase my exposure - not reduce it. I know this goes against what many security experts state.
