I changed my Lastpass password as a precaution, the email they sent me said I didn't need to change my password unless they contacted me and told me to.

You can also print out a grid that you can use in place of a phone app.

Not good enough, unfortunately, as your completed return is transmitted when you eFile.

It was expected, will happen again.

The really dangerous thing, is they truly cannot tell everything that happened, so they tell folks the happy story, that your data is safe.

I'll keep using a local encrypted password manager that I can copy and carry on a thumb drive within an encrypted file.

And I'll still be worried

To hear Steve Gibson's take on the LastPass hack go to this site, scroll down and find episode 512. He spends over 1/2 hour discussing it, so it's geek heaven!
