Until LastPass stops being forthright in disclosing vulnerabilities or intrusions, I'll stick with them. The way I look at is that every piece of software has vulnerabilities, so I'll stick to a proven honest company.

Additionally, passwords are too important to go without a password manager, IMO.

Steve Gibson has a neat utility called the Haystack calculator (needle in a haystack). Adding a few characters to any password can increase the time to defeat a brute force password attack from a few minutes to a few centuries:
