    So nice to verify that my 15 year old Hotmail never got pawned! :p

    EDIT: Ah, I seemed to recall changing the Hive associated e-mail to the gmail account. And it seems I did.

    I had my password reset but the password I was using was much older that 2016. I probably set it around 2008 odd or even before. Never really bothered to update it since I cannot imagine THW passwords having any real value or use to them as it is a gaming site with as good as 0 interlinking. Of course all my other accounts use completely different passwords, especially ones with monetary value attached to them.
     
  4. LastPass seems to be a browser extension. Seems inconvenient compared to KeePass. KeePass supports multiple databases, so you can have an additional one to share for reading, which is a 'premium' feature for LastPass. KeePass also supports auto-fill (highlight entry > Ctrl+V), another 'premium' feature for LastPass ('LastPass for Applications'). Also a 'premium' feature is '1GB encrypted file storage', have they not heard of Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, etc.

    I just changed mine after a little complication with old email, oh and it was the same password I set from 2007. Milestone, I guess?

    I haven't looked into it but how do you sync your Keepass to your phone then? I have Lastpass wherever I go and can even sign in on random computers by going to lastpass.com.
     
  7. I have my .kdbx file in my Dropbox and use KeePass2Android to access it on my phone. For web, I've used KeeWeb to access the file in my Dropbox.

    I'm doing the best I can, but it's not bullet proof. I am relying on the fact that Hive isn't a stock exchange.:mwahaha:

    Good thing that after redwing.asingaurd got banned, he took out his vengeance on me by taking the Retera account password and email and changing them to something new for himself. This milestone meant that my password and email on this site both changed last year. Otherwise, I might still be using an old one from 2008

    Hehe, mine was from 2006 - actually thought I had changed it since, but well this made me notice I hadn't. Quite fun to discover one place where I didn't have like a 25+ digit pass.

    There's no Hiveworkshop on recently pwned websites.
    The only password they pwned from my email is the 2nd weakest one, leetspeak password.
