Re: Still better than a password-protected MS Office document!

So, when deciding whether to use a web-based or local password manager you have to assess whether your machine or the web company is more likely to be compromised...

Unless you are *paying* the cloud provider to hold your data securely, under a contract with appropriate penalties should there be a security breach, there isn't really any security at all. What I am saying is, the free cloud providers have no interest in your security, and owe you nothing, because you are not paying for the service. Anyone in doubt of that can see the T&Cs.
