LastPass is a unique Password manager which is more specific to online websites where logons are required or even fill forms. As the name implies, there is only master password that you have to remember and the whole lot of your online passwords goes into the online database accessible securely from anywhere in the world or from any PC.

LastPass works very well with Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome (beta version only where extensions are supported) and safari internet browsers and on Windows, Linux, Solaris and Mac OS operating Systems as well. Also, supports Windows Mobile, Apple iPhone, Blackberries, Google Android mobile platforms on the premium subscription which costs one $1 a month. To me that’s worth an investment.

LastPass addresses concerns about the integrity and the safety of the very secure information online on the internet wherein for a start the information sent across to save at LastPass is encrypted locally using AES-256. One Time Passwords & Screen Keyboard help protect your master password. Also, available is the Grid Mutifactor authentication which creates a unique grid for your account and prompts 4 values of the grid at logon time along with the username and password. This advanced level of security is impressive. For the more security consicious, it’s worth reading the FAQ on their website which goes distance to explain the operational security efficiencies.

LastPass allows you to import from most major password managers like RoboForm, 1Password, KeePass, Password Safe, MyPasswordSafe, Sxipper, TurboPasswords, Passpack, Firefox and Internet Explorer’s built-in password manager and export too. LastPass captures passwords that other managers won’t including many AJAX forms, and allows you to make strong passwords easily.

Also, includes features like setting equivalent domains where a single username and password would apply (an example would be multiple websites of a single provider) and never save password info website list and setting trusted computers.

LastPass is a great security tool and I would recommend it to anyone. Click here to download LastPass and setup your free online account.

  1. IMHO, lastpass is very instrusive and some time a litle bit confusing, under firefox I rather use others password manager, even the builtin one.
    There is also the firewebsso addon, also acting as a remote password manager , auto form-submitter and using in-browser strong encryption.
