LastPass is better than nothing, but is it the best password manager for you? We discuss pros, cons, and alternatives worth considering. LastPass has a lot going for it: Many features, good MFA support, handy password tools, emergency access, etc. However, LastPass has many issues to consider. LastPass has a terrible security track record - not something you want from a security service. Go to Wikipedia and read how many incidents they’ve had. In 2022, a hacker breached their corporate vault and stole their users’ vaults. We’ve since discovered that some users vaults are unnecessarily vulnerable to being cracked and LastPass wasn’t encrypting all vault contents (e.g. URLs). Most LastPass clients are closed-source, which hides poor privacy and security practices. We’ve discovered Google trackers in the LastPass iOS app and LastPass collects sensitive data (e.g. location) that other password managers do not. LastPass is also quite expensive relative to alternatives. For privacy, security, and financial reasons, we encourage users to consider KeePass and Bitwarden.

Who Killed JFK?

Who Killed JFK?

Who Killed JFK? For 60 years, we are still asking that question. In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's tragic assassination, legendary filmmaker Rob Reiner teams up with award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien to tell the history of America’s greatest murder mystery. They interview CIA officials, medical experts, Pulitzer-prize winning journalists, eyewitnesses and a former Secret Service agent who, in 2023, came forward with groundbreaking new evidence. They dig deep into the layers of the 60-year-old question ‘Who Killed JFK?’, how that question has shaped America, and why it matters that we’re still asking it today.
