It does what it's supposed to do, retain dozens of different passwords for different sites, fill in forms with ease, but one must always double check if all fields are correct. And it is so easy to create complex passwords.
I couldn't work without it anymore.
During the install of this on Win7 you'll come to a point where it will ask you if you want to proceed AND ERASE ALL LOCAL PASSWORDS ON YOUR SYSTEM. Figuring, ok, I have BACKUPS, why not then allow my pws to exist on their encrypted server instead? I guess that might be ok, but then after ok'ing it, the installer's next step was to Import my passwords. OK, seems logical, but then the usual green progess bar would just burp at the seeming end and restart itself, over and over, for half an hour.
I finally used the Task Manager to break out of the process. Then, logging into the LP site, I can see that my passwords are in their Vault. Good, ok, but because I broke the installer process it never got to the point of installing a Firefox or IE add-on, nor did it erase my non-secured passwords. Without LP running, my Fox still will auto-fill my credentials. I'm not sure how bad that is, but whatever functions the add-ons ADD are not there. I looked around the LP site for add-ons installers but no go. I emailed the LP folks but they're busy with supporting paying users, no reply.
Obviously this works well for most, but I just got fed up and uninstalled it.
This has to be the best and easiest PW Manager ever. You will only need to remember 1 password and that's it. LastPass has many features and options and all are simple to set-up. You'll love it's Auto Login feature and Auto Fill Forms as well. It's a very well thought out software. I've been using it for over 3 yrs and yet to have any issues. Give it a try... enjoy
This has to be one of the best PW managers out there. Been using it for over 10 years and never had a problem.
This password manager is an excellent choice. It's quite easy to use, will take you a few minutes to run through it and get to understand but that's not a problem. You will need to remember only 1 password to access ALL your stored passwords and LastPass will automatically run your stored passwords. It's cloud based so you can access you passwords from any computer. I see that a few have commented that they don't want to use cloud service or share their passwords and have given LastPass an inferior RATING. If you don't want to share your passwords then you will need to use another password manager but PLEASE don't base your rating on that issue. Cloud technology is not bad and it's only a commercial name for marketing what really are servers which we have been using for decades. If your looking for an easy to use password manager then i would suggest LastPass FREE version .... enjoy
I agree with GG,there should be no need to register,period
I don't get why other people seem not to like this great little app, it's dead simple and works a treat.
Takes about two minutes to gain an understanding and start using it.
Even installs in SeaMonkey (my favorite and default browser) and just works.
I hope I've dispelled some of the FUD that's been posted here, there's not much, but there shouldn't be any.
Do I have to create an account?? I don't want my passwords sent anywhere, encrypted or not, trusted or not, I want to store my stuff LOCALLY. Plus I get a pop up saying my passwords will be less secure if I use LastPass to store my passwords. Seriously, what the....?
No thanks. While the interface and setup looked so promising, I don't care for the funky way this is run. I did try to store them locally but found absolutely no way to do so.
I'll use something else.
The entire design of this web-based application is just weird. I would not recommend this application for those looking to manage passwords whether web based or non web based.
Also, if you do decide to install this make sure you keep a copy of your stored logins from Firefox and IE because during the install process you are asked to remove them.
Absolutely awesome. Like Keepass, you can choose to use a portable, secure, and zero-installation app on a thumb drive...but why bother?
The real strength of LastPass is its impressive combination of seamless convenience and rugged security. Simply install the extension/add-on/doodad to whichever browser you`re using, and the LastPass feature train starts flying along. Auto-Login? OK. Autofill, but don`t auto-login? Cool with that. Fill in arcane, specific,and different data types into an array of unusual field types, all of which I`d rather LastPass auto-detected? LP has got your back, bro.
