I've tried a lot of password managers and this is by far the best one and now the app is free to use.

I've been using LastPass for over a year now and has been great! Before this it was free to use on a PC or laptop, but charged a fee for your mobile device. There was a promo here on FW a while back where I got it free for mobile for 2+ years.

Good to hear that it is free now as I think my original subscription will run out sometime next year.

Now I wonder how they are going to generate revenue.......

Damn. I just paid the $12 on Monday.....Grrrrr.

They are still doing the $1 a month Premium option. I suspect they realized hardly anyone was paying for the mobile version.

The mobile app probably has adds since the paid version say's add free

They have all your passwords.

Does Lastpass make you forget your password?

One good feature is it allows you to designate someone to have access to you passwords if you die after a certain amount of time passes.

Yes, i use it when i see it , i thought it doesn't work , but when i use it , it was awesome.

Been using LastPass for *years*. It's just great software. All you need to do is create one bombproof password and then no need to remember any others, as they're all totally random. I am a premium user; I do not recall seeing any ads when using it on my phone.

Another thing I like about it is that I can store all sorts of information in it and everything is totally encrypted.

Sweet software. Simple to the point of elegance, easy to work with.

rated:
Sweet! Now I can get rid of all the darn sticky notes pasted on my monitors!

For me the time saved with lastpass has made the $12/year easily worth it. I have several hundred unique passwords saved and I don't remember any of them. When I need my account and routing number when setting up a new payment I know exactly where to find it. Need my kids passport numbers and expiry dates? They are in an encrypted folder in lastpass. If I need to share a login I can do it with out sharing the password (the other person needs to setup a lastpass account of their own). Highly recommended at $12/year, now there are no excuses!

I stopped using it early this year when they sent a note stating some of their customer accounts were compromised!

the benefits of premium over free are:

Additional multifactor authentication options
Desktop Application Passwords
Shared Folders with customized permissions

The shared folder is great for small business or family applications where you want to share some but not all of your passwords with family or co-workers. But if you have a premium account you can share with non premium members. So for example I can share a folder of passwords with my wife, a different one with my wife and kids and a 3rd one with my secretary and only I have to have the premium account they can all have free accounts and they can create and share passwords within the folders they have free access to. This alone makes it worthwile to pay for 1 $12 per year membership.

Lastpass has been endorsed (unpaid) by a leading security expert. Read transcript here: https://www.grc.com/sn/sn-256.htm and here: https://www.grc.com/sn/sn-529.htm. The breach involved data that was salted and hashed which means the hacker only obtained garbled data that would take hundreds of years to unencrypt! Lastpass was also acquired by Logmein. I pay them $1 a month because I use it so much and can't stand ads! Taught my wife how to use it and although there were some pains, she got the hang of it. Try it out!

The only negative that I have about LastPass is it's like they designed the auto-insert password function on the phone app to do the exact opposite of what you want. Do you need it to insert a password? It will be sleeping. Come across an field that you don't want anything inserted...LastPass will be on the job annoying you every step.

They have all your passwords.

True, but the alternative is you have your passwords written down somewhere (insecure and subject to getting lost or damaged) and the strength of the passwords isn't as a good since you don't want to type in a long password by hand. You are likely to have a lot more duplicate passwords without a solution like LastPass since it is harder to track different passwords for everything, whereas in LastPass that is easy. There are pros and cons to both.

I've always used Password Safe, which is free. However I don't think it's for use on mobile devices. I'll give LastPass a shot.

No, it makes sure you don't remember your passwords.

I've noticed that too, which requires me to have to use the Show Matching Sites -> Autofill to get it to work.

Also if you have all your passwords as randomized by Lastpass, seems you're stuck with LP, unless you want to change passwords for all those sites if you decide not to use LP. None of my passwords are random.

Is it similar to Sticky Password? I've never used LastPass.

I'm not sure how sticky password works.

LastPass installs an extension on your browser. If the extension is logged in, then when you visit any pages that it recognizes, it auto fills (And even can progress to the next screen on occasion).
If the page isn't recognized (such as a domain change) then it tries to remember what you typed in and prompts you if you want to save.
You can also search it's Vault for any passwords. Wifi Passwords or even secure notes you make.

I don't use the app much so I can't tell you about it.
