    So I've got everything in Intel Truekey. One of my logins is Dropbox (which has a history of leaking tens of thousands of passwords). Now inevitably my dropbox account gets hacked, but because I don't know the password I can't login to change it. So how's a master key help? Alternatively I forget the master password, because I put on two method identification on every email account and my phone got destroyed, how do I get in? Doesn't sound like a way to simplify my life.

    Google's offering actually does have a password generating feature, and I've used it two times. I now use LastPass, but it's nice to know that people who aren't as tech savvy can have some better form of password management, even if it's significantly less secure than a proper password manager.

    So much ignorance in the comments… You do realize that all good PW managers, cloud-based or otherwise, use strong encryption, right? Backdoors are a concern, but there are offline options like Keepass if you need that level of security from the authorities.

    Keep your passwords offline. Don't use any service. Make passwords by yourself and use two step/factor on everything and print out the back up barcodes while also using Code Generator app from Google/Microsoft.
