But just a few among them are capable of providing a good experience. One is the LastPass. Since it is freely available to everyone. But unfortunately, it appears like LastPass has become a target of cybercriminals.

LastPass mentioned that a third party has gained access to its cloud-based storage service. This site was utilized by LastPass to manage the customer vault data. In simpler words, the LastPass vault that stores information like website logins, credit card numbers, and others is under threat. It is prone to backups by cybercriminals.

LastPass stated that if the customers previously used a strong master password, then their data is safe. Since the master password is not easier to interpret. Because it is based on 256-bit encryption. Besides this, the company is requesting that users modify their passwords in order to ensure safety and security.
