    I use a PIN to login to windows cant recommend any password manages although I think Lastpass has been hacked as it stores in the cloud and is always going to be a target. BTW in Win 8 you could only use 4 digits for PIN now in 10 you can use 5 or more.

    Neither LastPass or Dashlane can be "hacked" in the way you're talking about. The reason is that the data is encrypted, and the keys are stored only on your computer. Even if a hacker hacks LastPass, and gets the data, it's useless because they don't have the keys. Even LastPass themselves can't access your data.

    It's like a safe deposit box in a bank. It needs two keys, and one of them you have on you. Although, they can always drill the lock so it's not a perfect example, but assume they couldn't...
