Take the lastpass security challenge, accessed through the lastpass vault, then select security challenge on the left hand side. 

 

 

 

My score is ...

 


Your Security Score - 80%

Your LastPass Standing - Top 7%

 

Master Password Score - 83%

 

 

 

It would be higher if it did not include some junk one-off passwords. Quite a few of my passwords are on sites that have been hacked too -- eg, sony passwords were hacked, yahoo too it seems.

What is it?

 

 

If you use LastPass to store all your online credentials, you can run the Security Challenge as a form of audit. It tells you what (if any) email addresses have been compromised in known hacks, what email/password combos have been dumped, how secure each password is, how long since you changed each password, etc.

 

Makes managing several hundred random passwords a bit easier.

Master Password Score

 

 

 

It's always annoyed me that I lose some security score because I only have 37 sites saved. I just don't have an extensive online presence as I'm not a social media user (this place doesn't count), but I use it with Yubikey and it works a treat with NFC on my phone so I'll keep using it.

Nice scores. 

 

 

Almost every site has a unique email address @ one of my domains.

 

Every site has a unique password, I used to aim for a minimum of 33 characters, now I go for 64, but if a site is crap and only supports less then it will be max supported. 

 

Almost every password is pure random gibberish from the generator.

I'm too embarrassed to post mine except the master one which is 96% :)

 

I do need to sit down and redo all my passwords...

76% Overall Security Score

 

Top 12%

 

99% Master Password Score

 

I've been progressively working through my passwords, upgrading them to properly unique, complex passwords, so hoping to push that 76% up to the high 90s.  My Master Password Score is also probably inflated - while it is complex and unique, it is probably hackable.  I'm trying to come up with a good passphrase that I will remember, and it's not that easy...

Oh ok, never heard of it.

 

I use One Password.

 

It threw up this as a random suggestion

Oh dear!  Glad you asked that question - something else to work on over the weekend.
