LastPass Goes Paid
LastPass has decided to start charging for something that was once free. We discuss your options in the free space. Browser based password management is fine, but a third party is better. Bitwarden is free and open source. Chaim has used it for a year, and likes it.

Good guys—they know what they are talking about.
Great rapport, informative and just thirty minutes. What more could you want? Highly recommended.
short and to the point
I love that this podcast is only 30mins, yet is still informative. most podcast are just to long. Security all beats out Security Now any day Sorry Leo
One of the most UNINFORMED tech podcasts online
I really love my tech podcasts and i’d love to say this is a great one but it seems like about 80% of the opinions presented here are utterly uninformed. Someone wrote a review here titled “Professional yet Personable” and I laughed out loud reading it. I appreciate the effort these guys put into this but listening to them bicker over things none of them seem to know loses its entertainment value very quickly. It feels like listening to a group of old high school friends who were once in touch with technology and have since fallen out… clinging to the idea that they might actually have relevant perspective today. I’m sorry guys, this just isn’t very good podcast.
