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.

"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!

 |  Version: LastPass Password Manager 3.1.0

Works great, my passwords are available from anywhere.

It was a little tricky for me to set up subdomain passwords but once I learned it wasn't an issue.

One of the best password managers out there.

"Works well...when it works"

July 07, 2014  |  By wkb4447

 |  Version: LastPass Password Manager 3.1.0

Pros

Lightening fast log ins; navigation and set up are highly intuitive; had no problem getting up and running quickly.

Cons

Doesn't always input correct information; sometime won't load information. One has to make sure that the app is actually working, even if asterisk icon is showing on the screen (which should indicate that it is up and running)

Summary

Toss up. I've spent as much time correcting the settings for individual websites as I have saved time using the app. When it works, it's great. When it doesn't, it's a pain having to reset the password when the app forgets or gets it wrong.

"Pretty sorry."

June 03, 2014  |  By slimm29

 |  Version: LastPass Password Manager 3.1.0

Pros

It will occasionally remember passwords and occasionally fill in the user name & password blanks.

Cons

Totally unreliable. The "save password" doesn't always appear. It won't track password changes. You cannot -- or I haven't found out how to -- open the vault, and get your password when Lastpass goes down the tube.

Summary

Piece of dung.

"Best there is"

June 02, 2014  |  By you dont say

 |  Version: LastPass Password Manager 3.1.0

Pros

I've tried them all but Last Pass is the best in my opinion. It does everything it says it will do and does it well

Cons

Sometimes it asks to save sites that are already saved which creates duplicates. A minor issue.

Summary

Easy to use and integrates into your browser -

"RoboRobbers[RoboForm]Goodbye; LastPass & $20.00, Hello!"

May 31, 2014  |  By joelinmn

 |  Version: LastPass Password Manager 3.1.0

Pros

Does everything RoboForm does for free, saving you $20.00 a year. Even if you buy RoboDeForm'd, it is useless after a year's time (disabled) unless you pay another $20.00 and on and on.
Relatively easy setup, data from RoboRobbers[AKA RoboForm] and other password storing/generating programs migrates with instructions provided in Help files.

Cons

There are a few more quirks and rough edges than RoboForm, for example, passwords may have to be cued instead of automatically appearing on some websites. Editing data is easy - after a time or two of using it to modify something. It does not seem quite as quick on some sites as RoboForm, but for free, it is definitely worth the minor hiccups. I'm sure the developers will continue to polish this little gem as time goes on and personally, I'd be willing to tip their cause, because freeware this good is worth supporting.

Summary

As a good friend of mine from the Carolina's would say, gopher it Bubba; you too Sis...You can keep any other password manager you have, migrate data into LastPass and if you don't like it, delete it and keep your old password manager and data unchanged. It is worth a try for the benefits of freedom from having to rent something you purchased - RoboForm or other programs, that require annual ante-ups to keep using something you have already purchased!

"Works good!"

May 21, 2014  |  By dnelsch

 |  Version: LastPass Password Manager 3.1.0

Pros

I use it slightly different in that I already have passwords for multi-many sites, but it remembers them all.

Cons

Perhaps the biggest issue I have is that it doesn't seem to work well on my iPad or iPhone.

Summary

Sure beats going to the PASS file and looking up the individual password for each site.
