Microsoft tells me not to trust it with my passwords
Microsoft researchers say using password managers is bad.
I store my Keepass database on OneDrive. So hackers would have to hack into Microsoft and hack into my database. I just think this is extremely unlikely but what do I know?
They also say you should use the same password for multiple sites. This is also going against current popular opinion. My Adobe account was hacked, but didn't bother me because I used a separate e-mail address and a separate password. I'd have been worried otherwise.
I know password management has been discussed to death on here and Spiceworks, but don't you think it's odd that Microsoft is apparently telling people not to use the likes of Keepass and Lastpass. Unless they're being misquoted by the article. The full research paper is here It's not an easy read! If anyone wants to read it and provide a synopsis on ML that would be great.
The research seems to be around.... don't worry about crazy security for sites that don't matter, focus on sites that do matter (banking) and having a single point of failure is a big risk. That mostly makes sense but has to be taken in context carefully.
They aren't focusing on what makes you more secure, but are focusing on changing the goal that you are working towards.
