LogMeIn announced on Wednesday the arrival of LastPass dark web monitoring, as well as a security dashboard for the password manager.

The new LastPass dark web monitoring feature proactively checks email addresses against a 3rd party database of breached credentials. If that email address has been found in the database, the user will be immediately notified by email and with a message directly in their LastPass Security Dashboard. From there, users will be prompted to update the password for that compromised account.

Bitwarden Celebrates World Password Day With New Tools

· Andrew Orr · Cool Stuff Found

May 7 is World Password Day, and to celebrate the occasion password manager Bitwarden released new tools. One tool lets you enter passwords you use to see how long it would take hackers to crack it. The other tool is a password generator like the one in Bitwarden’s app, to help you create strong passwords for the apps and websites you use. Gary Orenstein, Bitwarden’s Chief Customer Officer, spoke of the tools: “Using strong, unique passwords for every internet site helps minimize the impact of data breaches. However, it can be hard – if not impossible – for people to do this without help. For passwords to be secure they must be unique and complex, but that makes them hard to remember. A password manager simplifies unique password use across different sites to keep users more secure.”

After you test the tools, give our podcast episode a listen where Kelly Guimont interviews Mr. Orenstein. You can also find Bitwarden on the App Store here (Not an ad but it’s my password manager of choice).

Firefox 76 Improves Built-In Password Manager

Mozilla released Firefox 76 today, bringing improvements to the browser’s Lockwise password manager. It also gives Mac users picture-in-picture functionality.

Firefox Lockwise will require a device’s account password before allowing a saved password to be copied, and it will let users know if a website breach has occurred that compromises a login and password.

It also provides an alert for vulnerable passwords, which are passwords used for more than one site. The password generating feature that creates random passwords has also been rolled out to more sites.

That’s great to know. I had no idea Firefox had a built-in PM.
