    @shacksta01: Not exactly. 1Password can help you avoid these sorts of attacks happening in the first place, and recovering from such an attack in a few different ways:

    Using a long, strong, unique password for each site ensures that no one can guess your password. And one account being compromised will not affect others due to password reuse. 1Password makes this easy by generating, storing, and filling ridiculous passwords you'd never be able to create, remember, or quickly type on your own. Finally, 1Password makes it easier for you to find and update a password for a login that may have been compromised. Since your data is encrypted, someone can't access your vault without your Master Password.

    I hope this helps. Be sure to let us know if you have any other questions! :)
