How are browser saved passwords vulnerable?
How secure are the password managers that are built into modern web browsers?
Currently I use lastpass plugin as I believed the browser based password managers were not secure. It is also the solution that I promote when friends and clients ask me about password security. However, I recently noticed that Firefox and Opera have the ability to set a master password on their stored passwords. I also notice that Chrome does not have such a feature (or am I missing something somewhere.)
Are these browser based password managers, with master passwords turned on, any good?
Should I continue to advocate lastpass and similar to my friends?
Should I advise them to simply enable the master password option on their browser of choice?
