I know quite a few people who keep all their passwords as well as their bank and credit card info in password manager programs on their computers and smart phones and they seem to have no qualms whatsoever about the security of their information. Yet I’ve read online that password hacking software is now to the point where it can run through over a million possible passwords per second and that even a fourteen character randomized password can be brute forced in 24 hours or so.
So what I’m wondering is why a user’s password manager’s password itself can’t be hacked. This would give access to all the user’s information in one place, including their name and home and office addresses and phone numbers, all their pertinent credit card info, plus bank account access. It seems to me this would make password manager accounts prime ground for hacking activity, but no one I know seems concerned in the least about it and at least a couple of them are quite computer literate.
