LogMeIn acquires LastPass for $125m

I have nothing against this acquisition in particular and I use (and pay for) LastPass for non-essential passwords, but this is why it’s better to have something local on your own machine (like KeePassX) because companies get sold and your data is going right along with the staplers and tape and whatever else was acquired.

Again—this isn’t about LogMeIn or LastPass. It’s about controlling valuable data. I like controlling my own.
