Agreed. LastPass and other services like it would make the internet and devices much more secure if only an exponentially higher number of people would use them. Sure, 2FA and account-specific random passwords aren't going to stop all attacks (such as phishing and taking advantage of user's ignorance), but it does make attacks much more time consuming and targeted, meaning in many cases, it just won't be worth the attacker's time.

Also makes surveillance/hacking that much easier, access to one key place and wham access to all. Kinda like the store everything on the cloud approach, collect all eggs in one basket and once that drops everything is lost...

Except everything on LastPass' servers is end-to-end encrypted, so even if someone did hack their servers, they wouldn't get any useful data out of it.
