Editors' Review

LastPass Password Manager is a convenient program to help you keep all of your log-in information secure without having to memorize all of it. You can use LastPass to automatically log in to any site once you've entered the information once, so you'll never have to worry about forgetting your password again.

Pros

Browser integration: LastPass integrates with Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, and more, so you can continue to use your favorite browser and still get all of the benefits from this app. You can choose to install only plug-ins for specific browsers, or you can use the universal installer, which will work on most major browsers and is the easiest option for novice users.

Nice interface: This app has a streamlined interface that makes the process of storing, accessing, and managing your log-ins a snap. Once you're logged in to the app, a button will pop up each time you enter log-in information for another site. Just click this button to add that log-in to the Vault, and you'll be able to manage it from there going forward.

Cons

Complicated installation: The installation process was a little convoluted, but instructions were clear enough. If you need help using the program, there are video tutorials, but that's the only option. So if you prefer reading instructions and not sitting through videos, you're out of luck.

Bottom Line

This is an excellent password manager with a host of great features including browser integration and a random password generator. Once you get past the installation, using this app is straightforward, and the inclusion of the master password feature ensures that your data will be safe, even if other people use your computer. For mobile access to this app, you can upgrade to the Premium version for $12.

"You get what you pay for. A completely useless program."

March 04, 2015  |  By ti28

 |  Version: LastPass Password Manager 3.1.50

Pros

Kept 1 out of 10 website passwords correct.
It's also free. Just not of frustration.

Cons

Failed on remembering 9 out of 10 site passwords. Your browser's password program is so much easier and more intuitive.

Summary

Program would remember old, outdated, passwords for each site saved so I would have to look up my password anyhow to see which was current. Completely useless and completely frustrating.

"HUGE frustration"

February 24, 2015  |  By NoB.S.

 |  Version: LastPass Password Manager 3.1.50

Pros

Makes using unique strong passwords relatively easy
Accessible from multiple computers, browsers and platforms

Cons

Changing passwords using the Lastpass drop-down menu frequently fails, especially if several passwords need to be generated before the required number and type of characters is met. In my experience, the new password gets either saved by Lastpass but not the website or vice versa. In either case, now you are locked out of the website and have to wait for an administrator to help. Usually, it doesn't take more than a few minutes so no big harm done but sometimes it may take hours or longer. That can be really frustrating if time is an issue (e.g. accessing your bank account online).

Summary

I've had it with Lastpass and am currently looking for an alternative solution.

"Buggy and annoying"

February 11, 2015

 |  Version: LastPass Password Manager 3.1.50

Pros

Remembers some passwords

Cons

? Interferes with creating new passwords for existing sites
? Stores multiple passwords for a site and then often enters the wrong onw
? Reduces the hassle of endless password dramas by maybe 5%

Summary

Just as annoying and time-wasting as trying to remember multiple passwords.

"Recomend. Good syncing different devices & platforms"

February 01, 2015  |  By jkirk1626

 |  Version: LastPass Password Manager 3.1.50

Pros

Syncs your passwords and secure notes across platforms, browsers and devices.

Integration with iOS is workable. LastPass's shortcomings on iOS are more due to Apple's walled garden and philosophy of treating its overcharged customers like children than LastPass oversights.

Cons

To work with your smartphone and sync data from your desktop platform to your cell, you have to pay a yearly subscription of $12 as of 2015.

There are a number of websites where the LastPass browser extension will not recognize the fields it needs to fill in.

Summary

Good and affordable. It's integration with iOS is good enough for me to fork over the yearly $12.

"It's ok but it has a few flaws"

December 21, 2014  |  By whitsey

 |  Version: LastPass Password Manager 3.1.50

Pros

great integration with browser
easy to use
apps for iphone and android

Cons

autofill only works sometimes
cross domain autofill works sometimes and not others
the browser extension is too small making it difficult to know which entry is the correct one
it

Summary

I don't mind it and will keep using it but their support isn't interested in hearing from customers with suggested improvements to make it better.

"Worst user experience with a piece of software?EVER!"

December 15, 2014  |  By MichaelGrossman

 |  Version: LastPass Password Manager 3.1.50

Pros

It would serve an important purpose--if it worked--but it doesn't.

Cons

Where do I begin? Frustrating to download, requires more extensions to function, requires resetting privacy and cookies settings, still doesn't function. It must have been created by a PC coder because as a Mac user, I expect my software to mix seamlessly with the OS and be inviting and intuitive to use. LastPass is none of these. These problems aren't browser specific either. If you use Safari or Firefox, you'll likely encounter the same frustrations.

Summary

Save yourself the trouble. If you need a stronger security system to prevent breeches of confidential data, look at other products on the market unless you enjoy the experience of pulling out your own hair.

"Great when it works (but site auto-save needs fixing)"

October 19, 2014  |  By d_j_stormer

 |  Version: LastPass Password Manager 3.1.0

Pros

Incredibly convenient. I always kept different, complex passwords for different sites, and managing them was a nightmare. LastPass has made browsing life a breeze in that regard. It's especially good, too, for sites where I have multiple accounts.
Secure. I read up a lot about LastPass's security before using it, and am convinced that it is secure. I have never had any security-related issues in the year or so I've been using it.

Cons

LastPass's automatic save function sucks. When first registering with a site, I always get LastPass to automatically generate a random password for me. It will do this and I will register/log in, only to then find that LastPass, for some unknown reason, didn't save the site login info. I then have to go through the "Forgot my password" procedure with a site I've only ever logged into once. So I've learned to save the generated password to a note, log in, and then go back and create the site entry manually in LastPass.

Summary

In spite of the Con I just mentioned, I would never consider quitting LastPass unless its security got to be compromised. It generally works well, and has made site log-in using super-secure passwords a breeze. Recommended.

"LastPass is amazing."

September 24, 2014  |  By HomeUser

 |  Version: LastPass Password Manager 3.1.0

Pros

Every issue I was worried about is covered with the application--can I copy the password from LP to my Quicken Vault (YES), will it work on different browsers and phones (YES), can I share with my spouse so that if she changes something I am not screwed (YES-can limit change authority or not since the application will keep shared passwords in sync), I don't want any of my readable information stored on my computer or in the "cloud" (it's not),, can I set app to to close after idle use or browser close (YES), can I print a text version of my info just in case (YES). In addition to security of my passwords it is now easy to access web sites (Just click on the site from LP. Folders help to make my crazy long list of passwords easy to find and use now (e.g. finance, social, taxes, shopping....).

Cons

The installation does require patience. Took me a while to realize that I had to go to my browsers' "managing add-on" or extensions to enable LP and, in one case, to set options within the extension. Some sites, like Verizon, are difficult to set up but most are a snap.

Summary

I can't believe it's free. I bought the "premium" version to access my LP from my phone and it made me feel better giving the creators of this product some funding!
