Editors' Review

by   / February 11, 2015

LastPass for Mac gives you a safe place to keep all of your sensitive account log-ins and other info, so you don't have to remember it all. Once you've entered all of your data into this app, you only need to remember your master password, and you'll have access to all of your accounts and more.

Pros

Auto-fill: When you enable the browser extensions that come with LastPass, you can take advantage of the Auto-fill feature. That means you won't even need to type in your log-ins or copy and paste them. And you can enter other types of information that you commonly use online, including your address, credit card information, and bank account numbers, so you can quickly auto-fill forms that require those details as well.

Password generation: When you add accounts to this app, you can use your current passwords, or you can have the software generate new ones for you. These are often more secure than the passwords you'd come up with on your own, and for each different account, you can specify the types of characters you'd like used, the number of characters you'd like the password to be, and whether or not you want it to be pronounceable, among other things.

Security Challenge: The Security Challenge section is a tool that lets you test the strength of all of the passwords you have stored in the app, and it also checks for duplicate passwords. Taking action on any of the Security Challenge recommendations helps to improve your score, which is an easy but effective motivator to make all of your log-ins more secure.

Cons

Password Recovery: While the app does prompt you to set up a Security Question to enable recovery of your Master Password, the function was not actually enabled when we tested the app. That means that if you forget your Master Password, you'll have no access to the information stored there and no way to get back in.

Bottom Line

LastPass is a convenient and versatile tool for storing your sensitive information and improving security for your online accounts. It's easy to use, offers a nice range of features, and it's free to use without limits.
