Recently, it was reported that LastPass users were reporting strange behavior with the service. For some reason, they were getting notifications that their master passwords were being used to attempt to log into their accounts. This led to some panic as some users had thought the worst had happened, and that their passwords were breached.

The good news is that if you’re a LastPass user, you will be happy to hear that your passwords have not been compromised. In a statement to The Verge, LogMeIn’s Global PR’s senior director, Nikolett Bacso-Albaum told the publication that these notifications came from “fairly common bot-related activity”.

According to Bacso-Albaum, “It’s important to note that we do not have any indication that accounts were successfully accessed or that the LastPass service was otherwise compromised by an unauthorized party. We regularly monitor for this type of activity and will continue to take steps designed to ensure that LastPass, its users, and their data remain protected and secure.”

That being said, we imagine that some users are probably a bit freaked out by this and if this concerns you, then you should probably make sure that you’ve enabled two-factor authentication. This means that even if your master password has been leaked, it’ll need an additional security code before you can get in.
