Editors' review

With awareness of Internet security at an all-time high, keeping track of the unique passwords needed for logins can be difficult. LastPass for Safari for Mac allows a user to sign in with one password and save those multiple logins for use when needed.

Available as a free plugin for Safari, the program's basic features do not require any payment to use. The program installs quickly into Safari without any user interaction needed. The only indication that the plugin is running is a small icon next to the URL bar in the Web browser. Users can access its settings and disable it if needed by going into Safari's preferences section. Essentially, the plugin allows users to create one username and password combination that can be entered when beginning a browsing session. As a user browses through secure sites, the plugin enters previous stored login information, keeping the user from having to sift through multiple passwords to enter. Despite the lack of instructions, LastPass for Safari for Mac performs well. Additional features, including sending data and generating new random passwords, may be unlocked with a premium subscription for $1 per month. However, many of the program's premium features are available in other, free programs. Despite this, the automatic retrieval of passwords as a user browses is a welcome advantage over other programs.

While simple, LastPass for Safari for Mac works well and may help those users with multiple, unique passwords used during Web browsing.

    "HATE LASTPASS"

    January 18, 2013   |   By TMickey71

    Version: LastPass for Safari 2.0

    Pros

    ZILCH There are absolutely no Pros about LastPass, These people are Evil

    Cons

    CAN NOT PERMANENTLY DELETE!

    I have uninstalled, I have deleted my account, I have restarted my computer & browser & Lastpass is STILL on my toolbar and still shows up when I right click as one of the options.

    There has to be someone who knows how to PERMANENTLY delete this Annoying Lastpass.

    If not, can someone tell me if you can do a system restore to a previous point on a mac like you can in windows? I have only had this mac about a week.

    Thank You

    "Better than 1Password"

    January 25, 2012   |   By mn2ca2co

    Version: LastPass for Safari 1.80.4

    Pros

    Categorize passwords. Use across multiple machines. ALWAYS prompts for saving of passwords.

    Cons

    Can't think of any!

    Summary

    I just got an iMac for Christmas and wanted to continue using LastPass like I did with my PC. I couldn't get the download to work so I started using 1Password. Hated that program. It didn't prompt to save passwords at least half the time and you couldn't categorize passwords for easy recall. Finally I went to the LastPass website and was able to download the extension for the MAC. Ahhh, to have my trusty side-kick back!

    September 15, 2011   |   By sunier2

    Version: LastPass for Safari 1.75.0

    Pros

    Works great with Firefox

    Cons

    Lost it in Safari and no idea how to get it back. Have to enter every last password again.

    "Not secure and not easy to use"

    September 07, 2011   |   By ComputerPhil

    Version: LastPass for Safari 1.75.0

    Pros

    what pros?

    Cons

    Not secure and not very intuitive, especially considering that's what Macs are known for.

    Summary

    Too many security issues and not very well put together, I personally am sticking with RoboForm now that they have a version compatible with Mac computers. It runs seamlessly and you hardly notice the toolbar in Safari. Very easy to use and well supported.

    "Download problem"

    August 30, 2011   |   By jjheyerly

    Version: LastPass for Safari 1.75.0

    Pros

    I don't have anything to say because I can't use the program.

    Cons

    The download of LastPass for Mac is a huge document of code. I don't see any way to install it on my Mac Book.

    "Inconsistent and Tech Support Awful"

    March 23, 2011   |   By CALF--2008

    Version: LastPass for Safari 1.73.0

    Pros

    Hypothetically good features. Generates complex password.

    Cons

    Disables autofill feature in database
    Isn't consistent about offering autofill
    Doesn't work automatically to register usernames and passwords
    Tech support is pretty much nonexistent for free version

    Summary

    I put in several messages to tech support, but they tell you they put you in back of the premium version users, and they sure are right. They would send me a message back that since they have not heard from me they are closing the issue, but they never answered the question. And in response, I cannot see anything to do but send another message from scratch, which appears to be a new issue. Then the other one gets "resolved" without any feedback at all. It's awful--and worth exactly what I paid for it.
    I find the tutorial videos to be incomplete and to not match what I see on my computer. Sometimes the features work and sometimes they don't.
    And then there's the problem with the work database that I use. Apparently LastPass disables the autofill that is very convenient for me in that database and has nothing to do with usernames or passwords. This is one of the issues they were "investigating" and then marked "resolved" without giving me any answer whatsoever. Perhaps I'll try 1Password; it's $40 but has a good reputation. LastPass should not treat its free users so badly, or these users will never take the premium version. Maybe they are counting on people upgrading from the free version to get rid of the problems, but that doesn't work for me.

    "It is a good program but must be set up correctly."

    October 26, 2010   |   By colhills

    Version: LastPass for Safari 1.70.0

    Pros

    It is growing on me as I understand it better. It does allow you to control the way it works but worthwhile spending some time figuring it out so that it works the way you want it to function with different web sites.

    Cons

    When it generates a password for a new site it somehow doesn't remember it when i logon to the site again, of course that could me not understanding it fully!!!

    Summary



    Updated on Oct 26, 2010

    I do not understand why some of the features of the program are in German when my main language is English. I live in Germany but my Mac runs in English. I would like to change all features to English but don't know how!
