Hackers break into centralized password manager OneLogin

NEW YORK — Hackers have gained access to OneLogin, an online password manager that offers a single sign-on to multiple websites and services.

OneLogin says in a blog post that it couldn't rule out the possibility that hackers got keys to reading encrypted data, such as stored passwords.

Published reports, however, say OneLogin informed customers that the hackers indeed got that capability. OneLogin didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

Password managers help people keep track of passwords for a growing array of websites and services that require one. Instead of having to remember complex passwords for each one, people can just remember a master password. The password service then unlocks other accounts as needed.

In 2015, rival LastPass said hackers obtained some user information — although not actual passwords.
