I love it but..
Can you please fix the Apple Watch app? I got my first Apple Watch back in December and not once have I been able to approve a login from my watch. I get the notification and I can happily click dismiss or not allow but approve does absolutely nothing like it isn’t even a button
LastPass: The Last Password You Will Ever Need!
LastPass is either a Web site or an app designed for Apple (Web site for MacMini or MacBooks; app for iPad, iPod and/or iPhone. It used to be free, but at $23.99 per annum, it is a steal. LastPass holds as many passwords as you need for as many Web sites, apps, pages, programs, etc., as you need. It also offers many other sections for information about those many places for which you need passwords.
You cannot go wrong with LastPass. This I know. While you can, if you wish, create your own passwords within LastPass, as I sometimes but infrequently do, you may also let LastPass create the password you wish for you, an excellent service. You set up the length of the passwords you prefer, then, when you enter a new card for, say, Twitter, you enter first the Web site’s company name, the folder (you can set up folders, such as business, social media, shopping, to name a few), username (login), then password. Rather than filling in a passcode, however, underneath that space for the passcode, there is “generate password” - press that, and LastPass will create (for instance) an eighteen-character password comprised of alphabetical, numerical and symbolic characters, such as xK95eY&1Q/myg*70zs - quite secure, I assure you. (I made that up, so don’t bother trying to use it.) It also shows you the password in varying colours, so that when you need to enter the password on a device that is not the same as what LastPass is on, it is less difficult to read.
Each vault card also includes a NOTES section, allowing you to enter all the information. So, if you use, as a standard, EZPASS (for crossing into New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, or Delaware), you can enter the multiple tag numbers for each device, plus the license tag on your car, and other tidbits of information, such as the minimum amount acceptable to put on the EZPASS account.
There are other options to explore within LastPass, and the programme itself looks out for you reminding you to change the Master identification periodically as well, always a wise decision.
I am a Human Resources Manager, which means that I almost never give the lowest possible rating; nor the highest. But LastPass rates very, very highly with me and with Luis Gómez, who has much more exacting standards than I when it comes to computer security (he’s the CIO of the company he partially owns). If anything should come up that might cause me to rethink this highly unusual rating, I will first give the LastPass team the first chance to rebut, refute, or address whatever could potentially result in a lower rating first. Knowing their commitment to excellence, they deserve that much.
Thank you, LastPass, and continue to keep our passcodes safe.
Works well but has annoying unwanted banners
I’ve been using this for about 6 months. It works well on my laptop. It also works reasonably well on my phone, but there are some annoying issues.
One is that it’s difficult to go back and forth between LastPass and the site I am trying to access. If I launch the site I then have to go back to LastPass, copy my username, go back to the site, paste it, go back to Lastpass, copy the password, go back to the site, and paste it. And every time I go back to Lastpass I have to log in again. That’s perhaps a good security feature. But still there must be a quicker way overall.
Also, recently a LastPass banner that says “Good morning” has started appearing at the bottom of my phone every time I do anything on the phone. Every few minutes. . This is completely unwanted and incredibly annoying. Notifications are off, I’m not even logged in..... I will get rid of Lastpass and get another Password Manager if I can’t figure out how to stop this.
Used it for years .. solid
This is a must
Buyer beware… Freebie users use at your own peril…
By Sean E Laugh
I used last pass for the last year or so, first the free version and then later as a premium user. My main reason for choosing them was the ability to give access on delayed time to somebody in case I became incapacitated in an emergency. I had problems with two factor authentication one day, and turned it off only to realize that the Microsoft two factor authentication was still turned on. No problem, just turn it off from the prompt that they give you and get an email link to be able to get back in your account. Nope. That would not of been as big of a deal because I could easily just reset the passwords for the sites that I had to get into at that moment, but their customer support is nonexistent. I sent in a ticket and expected a response within 24 hours since that’s what they claim on their website, but no deal. I finally received a reply to one of the multitude of tickets I put in in an attempt to try and get their attention, only to realize that all of the information they wanted I would have to get from the vault first. Catch 22 right?
Do yourself a favor, use Google’s inactivity manager to provide a single password with instructions to whoever you need to gain access to your information, and then create a password-protected PDF file with all of your information and store it somewhere on your computer -or better yet just use another app with better customer support but don’t use these guys...
Is the LastPass people even bother to read this review, I hope you turned off any recurring charges for my Premium Access that I paid for - what a joke is “Premium Access” gets me a response after 72 hours... that’s pretty crappy…
Life is Easier Now
Excellent app and No 1 password manager. Keep it up guys. God bless you
By Calvin's Pal
Been a loyal/ardent paying LP user since 2011. Up until the most recent update it’s been relatively rock solid. However, it’s become anything else but… It has progressed to the point of not being able to login, incorrect pw’s applied to login’s, vault pw’s not being updated when changed, mobile app not updating in real-time, ad nauseum. The last straw was when, following support’s instructions, I found myself w/an empty vault. No response from support, and a few tense hr’s later, the app began to start looking a bit more normal. While I had access, I exported the vault contents, uninstalled the app plugin and kissed LP goodbye. LogMeIn has taken M$’s lead by buying a rock solid product and trashing it…
This has helped make life easier - while Safari has their built-in password manager - this opens it up for others to be given access and store information like drivers license, passport, etc — amazing! Even the free version is really well done and fair.
Older version please
