LastPass Premium review - gHacks Tech News

LastPass Premium review

The password manager LastPass is without doubt one of the most popular online password management solutions. A core reason for that is that it is available as a free version that offers functionality that some competing password managers don't offer in this form.

The free version of Last Pass supports all the features that you would come to expect from a password manager; this includes browser extensions for all popular browsers, an online database of account information that get synchronized across browsers if you want, automatic form filling, one-click login to websites, mobile application support, and the ability to store secure notes in your vault which can be an excellent way of storing important documents and data in the cloud.

The vault can be accessed from any web browser, even if an extension or plugin is not installed. This is great if you often work on public computer systems.

LastPass is compatible with major browsers and there are app versions available for mobile devices to use it on these as well. The service does not restrict free users in terms of the number of passwords that they can store or the number of devices they may install the password manager on.


A universal installer is available on the LastPass website that you can download and run to install the password manager in all web browsers running on your system at once. Well, not in all, but the major browsers are all supported: Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera. You can select the browsers that you want it installed in as well, or download individual extensions if you prefer that.

LastPass supports an universal installer which you can download from the official project website to install the extension in all supported browsers at once. There are two exceptions though: LastPass for Microsoft Edge is only available on the Microsoft Store and the standalone Mac version of LastPass is only available on the App Store.

If you do not have an account yet you need to create one during installation which is a seamless operation that should not take longer than a minute to complete. The password that you set up for the account is the master password. You should make sure that it is very secure meaning that it needs to be unique, as long as possible, and that it is comprised of letters, numbers, and special characters.

Also, it is a good idea to set up two-factor authentication to improve security further.

LastPass' master password rules are not what I'd call rules that ensure that users pick secure passwords. The master password needs to be 12 characters or longer, include at least one number, uppercase and lowercase letter, and can't be your email.

lastpass password creation

Considering that the master password grants access to your entire password and notes storage, it is better if you make it longer and add special characters to it as well.

What I like is the option to scan the browsers for stored items which means that you can basically import all of the passwords and login related information into the password manager. That's great if you have been using a browser's built-in password manager.

Note that LastPass used to prompt for the import of passwords stored by the browser it was installed in but that this is no longer the case in new versions. You can still import passwords but it is no longer part of the installation.

It is also necessary to install LastPass in any browser that you use to import passwords stored by that browser. It is not possible to import Chrome passwords using LastPass for Firefox and vice versa.

LastPass supports imports from a good two dozen password managers as well as imports of passwords from generic CSV files. Supported password managers include Dashlane, 1Password, KeePass, Roboform, or Sticky Passwords.

If the import does not work automatically, open the LastPass Vault in your browser and select More Options > Advanced > Import to start the process.

You can check out this support guide on running imports after installation of LastPass.

LastPass displays explanations on using the password manager on first run and displays "getting started" instructions.

The password manager picks up new logins automatically and displays prompts to add them to its database. You may also add logins manually or use the import options if you prefer that.

There used to be an edit option but it is not available anymore. You can edit passwords in the Vault at any time though.

It is probably a good idea to use the built-in password manager when you create new accounts. Just select Last Pass > Generate Secure Password to generate a new unique password.

generate password

You can change the rules for the password right in the prompt. It is possible to change the character length, add special characters to it, and set the minimum number of numbers there as well.

The password rules are not as sophisticated as those provided by KeePass but they cover the most important parameters.

Once you have installed LastPass in your web browsers you will notice the new icon that is placed in the main toolbar of the browser.

A click on the icon provides you with options to open your vault on the Last Pass website to manage all of your passwords, access recently used sites, generate secure passwords, or manage other data right from the menu.

lastpass password manager menu vault

Login related information for the site you are on is directly displayed in the menu. Here you see if auto-login is configured and get options to copy your username, password or saved url which may be useful if you need to enter the data into another program or prefer to paste it manually instead of relying on LastPass' automatic filling of login fields (or if that does not work properly).

LastPass attempts to fill login information automatically when you visit a matching site and it may even log you in automatically on some.

LastPass Vault

While you can run some operations directly from the menu, it is the Vault that provides you with access to most options.

lastpass vault

You manage sites, secure notes, and form fills in the Vault. LastPass sorts logins into folders automatically. If you sign-up for Reddit or Facebook, the login is moved to the Social folder. You can create custom folders and move passwords to it if you prefer to use a different structure for your logins.

Sites can be added manually in the vault. You need to fill out core information, the site URL, username, password, and name, and may add other information such as notes, the folder you want the login information saved to as well here.

lastpass password edit

Advanced Setting provide you with options to enable auto-login, disable auto-fill, and to enable the password reprompt requirement.

When you open an existing password, you get the "auto change password" option which, when activated, triggers LastPass' one-click change option for stored passwords.

The service tries to change the stored password automatically on the site and will load the site in a new tab to perform the operation. The procedure works on many sites, especially those that do not use custom login prompts.

The operation may fail, however, and if that is the case requires that you change the password manually instead.

The listing of passwords uses big icons by default. While that is great visually, it means that you don't see a lot of passwords on a single page without scrolling. You may want to switch to compact mode in the interface to display more logins on a single page.

LastPass displays options to launch, edit, share, or delete account information when you hover over a site in the listing. The actions menu lists clone as another option when you use checkmarks to select one or multiple sites.

The sidebar menu lists the main entry points sites, secure notes, form fills, sharing center, security challenge, emergency access, account settings, and more options.

Sites, Secure Notes, and Form Fills work pretty much identical. You get a listing of data that is stored already, may add new sets of data to the account, and edit or delete existing entries.

Notes support plain text and attachments. You could use them to save important documents, bank statements, transactions, or important files using LastPass.

Emergency Access

Emergency Access is only available for premium customers. It is designed to give trusted contacts access to the vault after a wait period.

Say you have an accident and have to stay in bed or in hospital for a period of time or, god beware, you die. Without Emergency Access or written access instructions, no one is able to access the LastPass Vault.

With the feature enabled, trusted contacts may access it by requesting it at any time after the initial setup. The wait period is designed to give you options to decline the request if trusted contacts try to access the vault even though that is not wanted.

You can set the wait time between "immediately" and 30 days, and contacts that you invite need to install LastPass and create their own account using the email address you specify.

LastPass supports password sharing which works similarly but for individual passwords. To share a password select it in the vault, activate the sharing option, and enter the recipients email address. The recipient needs to have a LastPass account or create one for it to work, though.

Form filling

LastPass supports form filling to fill out web forms automatically. LastPass supports multiple data sets that you can store and select between when it comes to filling forms on the web.

Each set supports personal, address, contact, credit card, bank account, and custom fields, and you may fill them out in the Vault to get started.

The password manager adds little icons to fields to fill them out automatically using saved data.

Security Challenge

The Security Challenge scans the entire password database and computes an overall score. It highlights weak, reused, old, and even compromised passwords to you so that you may react immediately and modify those to protect the accounts.

The challenge redirects you to the LastPass website and requires that you enter the account master password to get started.

The service displays password strength ratings for each password in the account and may even change passwords automatically to speed things up.

LastPass Tips

lastpass vault

LastPass offers lots of options to improve the password manager's usability and security. I'd like to mention some of them which I consider to be important for the majority of users:

  • Hotkeys are available in the preferences. You can for instance open the password generator with Alt-G or configure a hotkey to log off.
  • You can configure the password manager to warn you if you are filling out insecure forms under Advanced in the options.
  • You can limit log ins to your Last Pass account to select countries, and prevent logins from the TOR network.
  • An automatic log off can be configured so that you are automatically logged off after a set period of time (from 5 minutes to 2 weeks).
  • Last Pass supports Google Authenticator and Yubikey for two-factor authentications. This improves the security by requiring you to enter a second code that is generated in real-time during log in to your vault.
  • You can attach files to your secure notes which is great for adding documents, scanned passports and the like to the vault so that you can access them wherever you are (provide you have Internet and your LastPass login at hand).
  • Since it is cloud based, all data syncs across all browsers that support LastPass.
  • You can make use of one-time passwords to access you vault, which is excellent if you need to log in on a public computer or a computer that you do not have full control over.
  • LastPass can check all of your passwords to assess their security so that you know exactly where to change passwords to improve login security.
  • Disable the sending of anonymous error reports under LastPass Vault > Settings > Advanced Settings > Privacy.
  • Options to define equivalent domains so that passwords for a site like works on other company sites such as automatically.

LastPass Premium

How is LastPass generating revenue you may ask, and one of the answers is premium accounts (another is Enterprise). LastPass Premium is available for $24 a year, and if you subscribe, you get the following additional features on top of all the features that the regular version of LastPass offers:

  • Mobile device support. You get access to LastPass on Android, iPhone, Windows Phone, Blackberry and other mobile devices.
  • Yubikey support to enable multi-factor authentication.
  • LastPass Sesame for multi-factor authentication using an USB Flash drive.
  • IE Anywhere to use LastPass without installing a plugin in the browser.
  • No advertisement.
  • 1 Gigabyte of online storage for data.
  • Password sharing.
  • Emergency access.
  • Email and phone priority support.

Upgrading your account to premium makes sense if you often use mobile devices and want direct access to your LastPass vault on those devices, or if you want to use another feature that is only available for premium users.

Back when I was using LastPass as my main password manager I subscribed to premium just to give the company something back for their awesome product. I switched to KeePass in the meantime as I prefer local storage over cloud-based storage.

What is not so good?

LastPass was involved in two security incidents in the past. The first happened in 2011 and LastPass was unable to determine at that time whether an attacker managed to breach the network of the service.

I switched to the local password manager KeePass as a consequence and never looked back.

The company revealed in 2015 that it "detected and blocked suspicious activity on the company network" and confirmed that "account email addresses, password reminders, sever per user salts and authentication hashes" were compromised.

Functionality-wise, LastPass has some issues as well. The tool to change passwords automatically for the user can do so one site at a time only which may take a considerable amount of time. Dashlane, another password manager that offers the functionality, may change multiple passwords at a time which speeds up the process significantly.


Recent versions of LastPass added new functionality to the core password manager.

Here is a video of LastPass that gives you a good overview of its functionality


LastPass is not just a password manager. What sets it apart is the functionality that the developers have build around it. You get much needed extra security in the form of multi-factor authentication, options to store documents securely in your vault, and protection against attacks coming from countries that you never went to, if you want.

    I am currently using KeePassX because it works on Linux.

    1. Gory J said on December 1, 2012 at 3:20 pm

      I have been using Last Pass for over a year now and free or not it’s the best app I have found to date for storing all my sensitive username\password information & nicely bundled up in a lot of encryption to boot.
      I am one of those users who will try a dozen programmes that all do the same job before i settle for just one, lucky for me that Last Pass now works hand in hand with X-Marks so no matter where I am my Favorite Web sites and login information is always wherever I am, fantastic duo and I have only used the free version’s, I reccommend these programmes to all of my family and friends and have a habit of installing both Chrome and Firefox browsers on every computer I build so there will always be Last Pass & X-Marks on every PC I build.

      Fantastic software and if you have never tried either Last-Pass or X-Marks then give the free version’s a go and after a week you will be addicted ;o)

  2. Nikhil Tom said on December 1, 2012 at 11:36 am

    I’m currently using Lastpass free for google chrome and it works really well
    For other browsers and other username,password scenarios I’m using Keepass,
    Though its not convenient as Lastpass, using shortkey Ctrl+V is a good thing (which will fill in Username and password automatically)
    Thanks for the giveaway Martin

  3. Julia said on December 1, 2012 at 11:37 am

    I’m using LastPass Free Edition and am very content with it.
    Thanx for the detailed review, Martin!

  4. Patrick said on December 1, 2012 at 11:44 am

    I am currently using LastPass, but not in the premium version.

  5. Manu said on December 1, 2012 at 11:47 am

    Thanks for this giveaway.. Currently using Steganos Privacy Suite..

  6. Dan said on December 1, 2012 at 11:52 am

    I use both Lastpass Free and KeePass 2.x for password management. LP is very convenient for cross-browser/platform management but since it’s cloud-based, I am still wary of its reliability, security, and privacy. Which is why I always save backups via KP just in case I may need to delete my LP account (like another security breach).

  7. Justblair said on December 1, 2012 at 11:55 am

    I have been using lastpass free version for a few years now. Some of its functionality is now available in the browsers themselves now, especially chrome. I would be interested in the ability to use a thumb stick to authenticate.

  8. nero said on December 1, 2012 at 11:59 am

    I have more than 1000 passwords in LastPass right now and it works great for me as a developer on my desktop.

    It’s really annoying that I have to pay for premium to get it to work on my droid and in the last couple of weeks I have been testing DashLane but it seems far more oriented towards consumers rather developers.

    It would really be great if I could win this give away :) Would make work a lot easier.

  9. pkghosh said on December 1, 2012 at 12:00 pm

    I am not using any password manager but will very much like to start.

    I read your Rules page where you mention ‘Winners will be announced after 48 hours on the Google Plus page’. Please clarify if it is 48 hours after each giveaway or at the end of this festival.

    Thank you for your effort and may this festival be very successful.

  10. Tom said on December 1, 2012 at 12:09 pm

    I use Lastpass (free) and also have Lastpass Pocket as a backup on a USB stick.

  11. Tomer said on December 1, 2012 at 12:11 pm

    I currently don’t use any password manager, but I really think I should start organizing my passwords and this giveaway can be a good reason to start :)

  12. Amal said on December 1, 2012 at 12:12 pm

    I’ve been a lastpass user for over an year and it just give a lot of flexibility for managing site logins. I use it with firefox and chrome. I’d love to have it on my iphone too. Thanks for organizing the giveaway.

  13. Sudip Kumar Das said on December 1, 2012 at 12:13 pm

    No password manager for me right now unfortunately. Will love to win one license.

  14. Arturo said on December 1, 2012 at 12:13 pm

    For a long time user of Lastpass free, just got a Galaxy Nexus I could use premium with. I’ve also been checking Keepass, I like it’s open source.

    Thanks for the review and giveaway.

  15. Tom Purser said on December 1, 2012 at 12:14 pm

    I am currently using the free version of LastPass, and am quite happy with it. I have previously used the paid version of RoboForm, which is also good. However, I have found that LastPass is easier to manage, particularly as I grow older and do not want to get into too much detail.

    Thank you for your review and giveaway program.

  16. Nikos said on December 1, 2012 at 12:16 pm

    I’m currently using LastPass… It’s very usefull, not to mention is avaliable everywhere… I’d like to have the chance to win the premium version…


  17. Craig Nicolson said on December 1, 2012 at 12:16 pm

    Using Last Pass at the minute and it is fantastic. Having Premium would be very useful though as I could access my passwords on the go!

  18. dziadek said on December 1, 2012 at 12:16 pm

    I’m using free version of LastPass on Chrome and Firefox. But i miss LP on my Android phone.

  19. Daniel said on December 1, 2012 at 12:18 pm

    i have been using lastpass since steve gibson recommended it on security now (podcast). that was way before the premium version was introduced. why didnt i get the premium one yet? because i was (and am) not sure if i really need it on my mobile phone as well. this giveaway would be a nice way to test that out.

  20. Avi said on December 1, 2012 at 12:21 pm

    Lastpass is my favorite password management tool. i’m using it more than a year, and i can’t complain! it save me not only once when i lost some passwords, and for sure this is first tool i’m install on a new computer.
    well done to the guys at lastpass!

  21. Rafael Perrone said on December 1, 2012 at 12:25 pm

    I used to be a KeePassX user, but moved to Lastpass about two years ago and never got back. It’s online sync power really made my password keeping easier. It’s Premium features would be great for adding my phones to the lineup.

  22. Chris Wuestefeld said on December 1, 2012 at 12:25 pm

    Using Roboform, but looking to get away from it because of their sleazy move in changing their support and killing my “lifetime” license.

  23. Ross said on December 1, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    I installed the free version of LastPass about a month ago. I have yet to figure out how to use it properly. Some sites that I thought I had saved passwords for still seem to not ‘auto login’. Will study in more detail if I win.

  24. Centris said on December 1, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    Firefox Sync on firefox. Xmarks for everything else :D LassPass would be nice.

  25. Andy said on December 1, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    Love lastpass, would love to win a premium account!

  26. Matthew C. Evans said on December 1, 2012 at 12:36 pm

    I have been using Roboform. Since Roboform is a standalone application rather than in a Web browser it can also fill out passwords in other applications (Windows Explorer and RDP client are two places that I use frequently). Also, I because it is a standalone application the passwords are available offline too which can be handy when you are looking for the WiFi password to get you back online! Is LastPass moving toward that model at all?

  27. Joseph S said on December 1, 2012 at 12:38 pm

    I have been using Lastpass for a few years now, it is the best solution for me since I can use it on my devices, and even on other people’s computers through the browser interface, I would love a premium subscription to it.

  28. [email protected] said on December 1, 2012 at 12:51 pm

    I love LastPass. & i think life is much easier with last pass ….. thats why i love it… & I hope I’ll win this time…

  29. leo said on December 1, 2012 at 12:53 pm

    Im a long time user of Lastpass free… I was once persuaded to move to dashlane but it was bloated and the workflow is slower. Hope to win this one, although Im not so sure if I ever need premium yet..

  30. woomera said on December 1, 2012 at 12:53 pm

    wow ive been looking for this for so long. i use the free version on my pc but i recently bought an android smartphone and wanted this but couldnt afford. i want it :)

  31. Zlip said on December 1, 2012 at 12:54 pm

    I was using LastPass previously but now I am not using any and sync my passwords using Google Chrome or Firefox Sync feature across multiple devices. It will be really nice to have Premium version of it. I also translated its few strings in my native language, so If I could get Premium, I might complete its translation more willingly.

  32. torsk said on December 1, 2012 at 12:55 pm

    i have been using kaspersky password manager.Now i ‘d like to try lastpass premium.

  33. Jason Y said on December 1, 2012 at 12:59 pm

    I’ve been using KeePass 2 for a long time, but would consider switching to the premium version of LastPass for use on my new Android phone.

  34. pwned135 said on December 1, 2012 at 1:05 pm

    I’m currently using the LastPass extension for chrome and it’s really a must-have extension for me, I have around 90 username+password groups so I absolutely have no chance of remembering them without LastPass. Would love a chance for LastPass Premium ^^

  35. Tomas said on December 1, 2012 at 1:05 pm

    Curently using LastPass free, very helpfull. Now while i have Android based phone, Premium would be great upgrade.

    Count me in!

  41. James said on December 1, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    I am currently using Lastpass free version and I really like it. It’s very convenient to use and this is the only password manager that I am familiar with except for Norton Identity Safe. Thanks for this amazing giveaway.

  42. WCS.Tony said on December 1, 2012 at 1:33 pm

    I have been using LastPass for years and it is a Godsend as I have hundreds of websites that I have registered with. LastPass allows me to have different and unique passwords for each site without worry – IT REMEMBERS, even years latter.

    It is also far safer than writing passwords in a little book or a file. I have seen so many people who had one password for everything, can you imagine their panic when I tell them that their HOTMAIL (other emails are available) account has been hacked?

    Running a small PC Support company, in Surrey, I also have a lot of elderly customers and LastPass has now solved all those frustrating “I’ve lost my password” phone calls. In fact, come to think of it, LastPass is probably LOOSING me money?

  43. Mike M said on December 1, 2012 at 1:36 pm

    I am currently using LastPass premium and would like to add another year to my account being it is about to run out. Thanks for the giveaway and good luck to all.

  44. Sharon said on December 1, 2012 at 1:44 pm

    I am using the free version but I wouldn’t mind an upgrade.

    Thank you.

    I’ve been using LastPass daily for years and love it, I would absolutely love a premium account so I can easily log into sites from my tablet.

  46. SCBright said on December 1, 2012 at 1:47 pm

    I’m using LastPass free for many years. It’s one of the first thing that I install in a new computer.
    LastPass made me able to access all my passwords and sites even at the company computer at my work. I can’t live without it.
    I hope to have the chance to win this premium.

    I have been using LastPass Premium for over a year on both my laptop and my Android phone. It allows me to have different, complex passwords on each site, making me feel more secure. $12/year is a bargin!

    Lastpass is a very usefull service, using it a few years now, I’m in :)

  54. Jan Wroblewski said on December 1, 2012 at 2:34 pm

    I’ve just downloaded LastPass(free version) as the need for a password manager became very clear – having lost the OS(Hard Drive crunch) and had to go through the lengthy process of accessing web sites and restoring password access. The Premium version would be a bonus, to use.

  55. britgeek said on December 1, 2012 at 2:44 pm

    I’m currently a lastpass free user, and have gotten several people to use the service

  56. Zahed said on December 1, 2012 at 2:47 pm

    Been a Lastpass user for long….premium would be nice

  57. Paul B. said on December 1, 2012 at 2:50 pm

    I’ve been using LP for a few years now and give it a 4.5 star rating. There still are several interface problems that I’d like to see cleaned up, and little bugs like lost generated passwords. But the workarounds are pretty simple, such as manually copying the generated password if LP fails to enter it automatically.

    I’m also glad that the LP addon for opera is coming of age. And with Opera beginning to expand its extension API, that should hopefully improve.

    The was a security breach on the remote servers a year and a half ago or so, but I trust that has been dealt with. I’m pretty confident that the LP system of local encryption is secure. I do need to get up to speed on how to use it from a USB stick on other machines though.

  58. vsilvar said on December 1, 2012 at 2:59 pm

    I’m currently using LastPass, and I think it only lacks the ability of saving program password like steam, an RDP client, skype …
    Nonetheless it’s a great service that I can’t live without.

    Thanks for the giveaway Martin

  59. Domdom said on December 1, 2012 at 3:00 pm

    LP just changes your life on the Internet and makes almost all passwords “dissappear”! Same as Martin, I decided to support LP by going premium, it even gives you access to you password on all mobile devices … :-)

  60. chad tunis said on December 1, 2012 at 3:05 pm

    I use Last Pass (free) and it is excellent software!

  61. Scott said on December 1, 2012 at 3:05 pm

    I’ve been a LastPass Premium user for a few years. I tried a couple others, but LastPass did everything I wanted & more. Well worth the $1/month.

    I am a loyal user of Last-pass for more than 3 years now. It’s first add-on I install on any browser. Indispensable. Would love a premium acc.

  63. techspy said on December 1, 2012 at 3:13 pm

    I have been using Roboform for quite some time now. Looking forward to use Lastpass now.

  64. Jim Hager said on December 1, 2012 at 3:24 pm

    Long addicted to PW managers, I am always on the lookout for any improvement in features and benefits. Last Pass fits this criteria

  65. Harvey Bernstein said on December 1, 2012 at 3:24 pm

    I currently use Last Pass in my daily activity. I don’t know what I would do without it.

  66. Gustav P said on December 1, 2012 at 3:33 pm

    Just starting to do the whole Android thing with phone and tablet. Would be nice to have a chance to use LastPass on it, show it to friends and bring them over to a safer way of experiencing the WEB, where a password leak only affects the one site. And not all of their sites ;-)

  67. Joseph Potter said on December 1, 2012 at 3:37 pm

    Love LastPass and would like to be counted In :-)

  68. kwiat said on December 1, 2012 at 3:38 pm

    I use LastPass about 2 years and it’s awesom. I simply know one password and nothig more bothering me :)

  69. Michael said on December 1, 2012 at 3:38 pm

    I’m currently using KeePass and keep my database in my Dropbox so it syncs across my PCs. Must admit the Android support with Lastpass looks really useful

  70. iarno said on December 1, 2012 at 3:41 pm

    Oh I’d love to win a LastPass premium account.

    I use it free on my work laptop, but I can’t get rid of 1password for now on my Mac.

    The LastPass UI is just horrible at the moment, I want a redesign so much…

  71. Pankaj Patil said on December 1, 2012 at 3:43 pm

    I’m using keepass because it’s free and open source. I’ve read somewhere that open source software’s are more safer. I must try lastpass though especially after reading your review.

  72. Rhino said on December 1, 2012 at 3:43 pm

    Been using Lastpass for a couple years now and it’s amazing. If you’re an Android user you need to check out the lastpass plugin for Dolphin Browser. Makes it as easy as on your PC.

  73. Chris said on December 1, 2012 at 3:46 pm

    I’m using Lastpass on my PCs already, but I would be so happy to have a premium account so that I could use Lastpass on my Galaxy S3.

  74. Sachin said on December 1, 2012 at 3:48 pm

    Lastpass of course!

  75. Vivek said on December 1, 2012 at 3:52 pm

    Hope so i win – need to use lastpass on my phone !

  76. DonR said on December 1, 2012 at 3:53 pm

    This is the BEST password manager going. It does everything that I need it to do including form fill and auto fill. Been using it for a long time and now use it on my Android. All my devices are using it and one of the great features is that it syncs all.

  77. BPNelson said on December 1, 2012 at 3:54 pm

    Love the free version of Lastpass. Getting the premium version of this great software would make a great X-Mas gift.

  78. Anthony said on December 1, 2012 at 3:57 pm

    LastPass is a great tool. I love the premium version since it lets you get your passwords online through many browsers as well as it lets you put your passwords on a flash drive for portability. For $12/yr for the premium version… it’s comfortably priced and convienent insurance.

    I would love to be awarded this premium version!

    Thanks in advance… I’m sure it’s on it’s way to me. Well, maybe :)

  79. Mark said on December 1, 2012 at 4:01 pm

    I’ve been using the free version of LastPass for years, and it’s great. I did try out the premium version, and it’s great, particularly on your mobile device.

  80. Anthony said on December 1, 2012 at 4:02 pm

    PS: I am currently using PasswordsPlus and it will not merge into LastPass. Even after exporting it to a csv the mapping will not work. That’s one problem that I see. The mapping method needs to be made a little more customizable. Then LastPass would really be the real cream of the crop!!!
    I would still love to win this contest


  81. www said on December 1, 2012 at 4:02 pm

    I was looking for a good long password manager. I found LastPass and it is great!

  82. Kunal said on December 1, 2012 at 4:10 pm

    I would love a premium account and access LP on my phone!

  83. Cool said on December 1, 2012 at 4:11 pm

    Thank for this awesome giveaway! Currently I does not use any password manager since all of my password are identical and same for every website except for my Paypal and bank login. Previously I am a beta user for Dashlane which is rather great password manager too but did not use it since it was officially launched.

  84. Linu George said on December 1, 2012 at 4:13 pm

    Thanks 4 the giveaway…..using the free version of lastpass… regards.

  85. Awais Imran said on December 1, 2012 at 4:14 pm

    I wish Apple would allow plugins for Mobile Safari. LastPass for iOS isn’t as useful as it is on the desktop because of this.

  86. ~mattz said on December 1, 2012 at 4:20 pm

    KeePass as it is not cloud based. I’ve downloaded and am testing LP for non-financial use.

  87. SDK said on December 1, 2012 at 4:21 pm

    Been using Lastpass for almost 3 years now, love it

  88. glitch00 said on December 1, 2012 at 4:26 pm

    I use SafeWallet for my password management. Nice app but interested in lastpass

  89. Guillermo said on December 1, 2012 at 4:27 pm

    I use my own memory to store my passwords, so probably in 48h I will memorize my last pass.


  90. The_Flames said on December 1, 2012 at 4:43 pm

    I use Lastpass at the moment, but upgrading to Mobile premium will allow me mobile device support, that’s probably the only addition I would use after upgrading.

  91. thewooster said on December 1, 2012 at 4:48 pm

    I’ve always stuck with my own system, but I might be willing to give lastpass a try.

  92. Neo #R said on December 1, 2012 at 4:53 pm

    I usually use the firefox built in password manager with the firefox sync option. I’d like to use lastpass in my WP7.5

  93. Robert in SF said on December 1, 2012 at 4:59 pm

    I use LastPass, but didn’t really research the premium features. The iPhone option has really sparked my interest. Now I am wondering if there other other options I haven’t explored yet, like easy searching for duplicate entries or unused entries over a certain amount of time.

    Thanks for the contest! Here’s hoping!

  94. slomem said on December 1, 2012 at 4:59 pm

    After reading your review I think I will give Last Pass a closer look. I’m currently using Password Depot 6. PD 6 share some qualities with Last Pass like password generator and with that it also gives you an estimate as to how long it will take a brute force attack to crack your password. It is free also. But I have not looked into the pricing of the premium services. It does not have the country blocking service that LP has. Overall it is not bad but I think since this is my first venture into this type of software I should look around more. Thanks for the informative review.

  95. Javo said on December 1, 2012 at 5:01 pm

    I’ve been using Last Pass for a couple months. I’ve changed all my passwords to completely random chars so I use Last Pass even to login to each site ( The password generator is very useful).
    I’d like to try the Premium service now, mostly so I can use it on android.

  96. Richard Pedersen said on December 1, 2012 at 5:01 pm

    I’ve been using LastPass for several years now and would have a difficult time without it.

    Thanks for the chance to win a premium version!

  97. Jim Ward said on December 1, 2012 at 5:08 pm

    My password file is getting out of hand…if LastPass can organize it, that would be awesome!

  98. Thomas Patrone said on December 1, 2012 at 5:08 pm

    I used to use lastpass but had to stop because I dont have premium. Therefor, It does not sync with my Android phone. I now use Chromes regular password sync that syncs but it is not nearly secure. I miss using Lastpass.

  99. Glenn Gordon said on December 1, 2012 at 5:20 pm

    LastPass certainly is one of the best, if not the best password manager. However, I feel LastPass under sells itself, as it is not just a `Password’ Manager. Among its many other features for free users, It is also an excellent form filler too. However, this has an awkward learning curve and in focusing more on its ability to manage your passwords, the creators may have overlooked and neglected making its other features more user friendly. I look forward to discovering more on how it can save me much more time, as I fill in lots of online job applications.

  100. Austen said on December 1, 2012 at 5:21 pm

    I am currently using a spreadsheet that is passworded on my Mac. This review made me switch over. Doing so right now.


  101. codeta said on December 1, 2012 at 5:30 pm

    I am using free lastpass. And will not use any browser that do not support lastpass plugin. I hope to win the premium one. Thank you

  102. paulo oliveira said on December 1, 2012 at 5:39 pm

    wow!, what a nice way to begin the Giveway! thanks!

    currently I use notepad++ » a text file as password manager. Last Pass would be a wonderful addition :)

  103. David Galloway said on December 1, 2012 at 5:44 pm

    I’ve been using the free version of Last Pass for the past six months or so. I’ve meant to get a premium subscription and a Yubikey but I haven’t gotten around to it yet.

  104. mage said on December 1, 2012 at 5:45 pm

    Happy Lastpass user here. Would be nice to get a premium account.

  105. Teiji said on December 1, 2012 at 5:51 pm

    I’ve been using LastPass free for awhile now. I love the generate password feature. Ever since I learned of it, almost all of my online accounts have gibberish passwords that even I don’t know.

    So even if any of those site get hack (ie. like the recently TechPowerUp site), I’m still fine since the hacker won’t be able to access my other online accounts, and I’ll just generate another random gibberish passwords. :)

  106. professional user said on December 1, 2012 at 6:04 pm

    good giveaway, thanks!

  107. Robert said on December 1, 2012 at 6:11 pm

    not using any password manager yet but planning to use one on the near future. thanks for the opportunity.

  108. Parikshit said on December 1, 2012 at 6:11 pm

    I am currently using LastPass and it’s the best ( Ihave used both roboform and lastpass and can confidently say that lastpass is quite superior). My LastPass premium expired last Month. Would be glad if i receive this giveaway…

  109. David said on December 1, 2012 at 6:11 pm

    A long-time LastPass user eager to try the premium version!

  110. Shane said on December 1, 2012 at 6:14 pm

    I use lastpass and love it. Premium would be great so that I could use it from my phone.

  111. Seban said on December 1, 2012 at 6:16 pm

    I use KeePass, but nonetheless would be happy to win LastPass Premium because I’m planning on getting a smartphone soon.

  112. Christina said on December 1, 2012 at 6:17 pm

    Ive tried several and found last pass to be the best password manager.

  113. Paul(us) said on December 1, 2012 at 6:18 pm

    I am using Last pass free for many years and I always looked or there where better programs for me and there where a few who came close. I would really like the the payed one because of the extra’s it brings.
    Thanks for the change to win.

  114. bruno said on December 1, 2012 at 6:28 pm

    Using the free version of lastpass.

  115. Brendon said on December 1, 2012 at 6:28 pm

    Lastpass is one of the best things out there. I have been using it for years now and have been paying for premium as well. I can’t live without it.

    I never win anything, to win this would be awesome! I think my subscription is running out as well, so it would be good timing.

  116. vhick said on December 1, 2012 at 6:46 pm

    Thank you so much for the giveaway, I currently using LastPass as free user.

  117. Russ said on December 1, 2012 at 6:47 pm

    I have quite a few co-workers that swear by LastPass. I would be very interested in trying it out.

  118. kool said on December 1, 2012 at 6:49 pm

    Sounds like a great program. I’m currently using KeePass. I like the mobile phone support and no advertisement features.

  119. Graham Rusk said on December 1, 2012 at 6:53 pm

    I’m using LassPass but could really make use of the Premium version for the mobile side of it. I love it. I also prefer the fact it’s closed source over the open sourced KeyPass. For me letting a hacker see all the code for a security program just seems….. dodgy somehow.

  120. dwarf_t0ss said on December 1, 2012 at 6:54 pm

    I am using KeepassX since the last big lastpass debacle/paranoia bit, but would love to have lastpass again since it will work with android as well.

  121. RW said on December 1, 2012 at 6:55 pm

    I have used Last Pass for three years. Last year I purchased the Premium version which takes the mobile version to a much higher level.
    Whoever wins one of the twenty LP Premium versions can be assured they own the best password manager.

  122. Dood said on December 1, 2012 at 6:55 pm

    Last Pass is great! Been using it ever since it first was released.
    Hope I can win a extra free year!

  123. Sparx said on December 1, 2012 at 7:05 pm

    One of the ways that LastPass is better than other competitors is its support for two-factor authentication. Even better is the fact, that it supports the Open Source protocol that the Google Authenticator Android app uses and another proprietary app needn’t be used.

  124. Tom Hartke said on December 1, 2012 at 7:09 pm


  125. Th3Jimp said on December 1, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    I’ve been using LastPass for about three years, and I’m a very satisfied customer. I haven’t used Premium because the last time I tried it out it required I install a browser on my device to be able to use the service. Since I use Chrome on Android, I’d like to see an extension developed for Chrome Mobile that would allow for LP integration, instead of an out of band browser.

  126. Broudka said on December 1, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    Count me in :D
    I’m using last-pass free.

  127. Wolf Revels said on December 1, 2012 at 7:33 pm

    This looks to be just what my wife and I need. Thanks. Your richly detailed review has convinced me that this is the product we want, and need

  128. Edorf said on December 1, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    Switched to LastPass when the Opera extension came. Used Kepass before that.

  129. irkregent said on December 1, 2012 at 7:45 pm

    I’ve been using LastPass (free edition) for quite some time and just love it. I’ll have to check into the Premium version.

  130. wjbinokc said on December 1, 2012 at 7:46 pm

    Previously, I had used Roboform. This is an excellent password manager and recommend it highly. Their form filler is better than last pass in terms of filling all of the fields correctly on a wider variety of forms. Now, I do use Lastpass because it is more secure in its implementation. I want to use the two fact authentication feature. I use the one Google has and the way it works is awesome. Don’t have to worry about hacking unless the hacker uses my mobile number at the same time I use it. Darn near impossible. Anyway, I recommend LastPass highly and would love to win the premium version!

  131. bob said on December 1, 2012 at 7:50 pm

    I tried to use Roboform, couldn’t figure it out. Would like to try Lastpass.
    Good luck, merry christmass to all.

  132. Jeremy said on December 1, 2012 at 8:02 pm

    I’ve been using LastPass for a couple years. Hands-down it is the best manager I’ve used. Easy to use, easy to update, and I trust it. Great great product.

  133. mavourneen s. said on December 1, 2012 at 7:03 pm

    I’ve been using Sticky Password for over a year now. I’ve tried LastPass in the past, as well as roboform and sticky just seems to work for me.

  134. Ivan said on December 1, 2012 at 8:07 pm

    I use keepass for licence keys and such and LastPass for emails etc. I have been using Roboform for years but their pricing policy (discounts only to new customers) prompted me to change.

  135. snelson said on December 1, 2012 at 8:08 pm

    I currently use Lastpass on all my computers, but would love a premium license so I can start using it on my mobile devices too!

    We currently use RoboForm Everywhere and have been quite satisfied with it on all of our computers.

  139. JohnC said on December 1, 2012 at 8:41 pm

    I am currently using “Password Safe” but I want to replace it as there are some issues with browser integration so mostly when I have issues I copy/paste from notepad++. Have not tried other freeware lately though. Would really want to win one as a replacement.

  140. Position said on December 1, 2012 at 8:59 pm

    have been using Norton Identity Safe for now…. also have Steganos Privacy Suite 14…. have read good reviews of LastPass so would love to get a chance to use it…..

    I do not use any password manager, I use the old method: my memory :(

  147. TheRube said on December 1, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    I have been hesitant over the years to use any kind of Password Manager even though I have found through research that LastPass consistently is voted Top three of all such managers available out there – – and so I would like to give it a try to see if it is all Cracked Up to be.
    Then . . . I can safely recommend it to my friends; associates and co-workers!

    Thanking You in advance,

  148. Have said on December 1, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    Currently I use Sticky Password 6 PRO, before the release of version 6, enjoyed a 5 version. The program arranges, but does not mind to try something new.
    Since I will be glad to participate in the raffle LastPass Premium.
    Count me in please.
    Best regards!

  149. Will_N_kcmo_usa said on December 1, 2012 at 10:46 pm

    My primary password manager is a guy called William 12.7.1

    William 12.7.1 is an old school password management system. It uses a 80 sheet 3×6` memo style paper book made in Mexico. All the main sites and company information is written down in pen and all passwords are written down in pencil. This allows for easy modification of the password information as needed, when needed. The information is stored in a non-secured location. Right next to our computers. This also allows quick access to said passwords.

    Future upgrades are to transfer all data to an 11×8-7/8 college ruled 80 sheet system with the image of a local University on the front cover. Thank you from Kansas City Missouri. USA


  150. Al said on December 1, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    So far I have been using a piece of software I wrote myself, but it doesn’t allow the integration with mobile devices, so i would be very keen to try LastPass. Thanks for the December giveaways and the interesting site.

    I hope you get all what you wish for this year and more…

    Thanks again for so many great finds that make our lives easier everyday.

  154. Shea Bunge said on December 1, 2012 at 11:50 pm

    I’ve used LastPass ever since I discovered it early this year. All I originally wanted was a way to sync Google Chrome and Firefox passwords, but it’s become much more than that.

    Almost all of my passwords are random strings of numbers, letters, and special characters. There’s no way I could memorize those passwords, and so LastPass is invaluable for both storing and generating those secure passwords.

    I have LastPass installed on Google Chrome on my home computer and my laptop, and on Google Chrome Portable on my USB. However, I can’t always use Google Chrome Portable from my USB (takes a while to start-up); the IE Anywhere and LastPass Sesame features of LastPass Premium would be invaluable for me. It would also be great to use the Android app to easily access my passwords on the go.

  155. Leland said on December 1, 2012 at 11:59 pm

    I have been using Sticky Password for the last 3 years. I have been aware of LastPass and had considered it but for security reasons had staid with Sticky. However the development of Sticky Password has not headed in a direction I care for of late. Count me in for this nice giveaway.

  156. Zeus said on December 2, 2012 at 12:02 am

    I’ve used LastPass free version, next was keepass, and now is my mind. I try to remember passwords but sometimes i write on my notebook.

  159. Jordan Humberto de Souza said on December 2, 2012 at 12:37 am

    Oh man… I can’t express myself how much i LOVE this software. I’m using lastpass for more than 2 years now and i never had any kind of problem remembering any passwords at all as after the first run/login it will work EVEN if you are offline. How good that can be? I never had access to the premium version of it but i’d gladly enjoy it for sure, hopefully i’m one of the 20 lucky guys.

    Ty as always for premium quality IT related content on the web Martin!

  160. AaronY said on December 2, 2012 at 12:38 am

    I’ve been using the free version for years…irreplaceable for me! I can’t surf the net without it. it’s one of the reasons i vastly under-use the web on my Android phone, but the premium version would provide that as well, in addition to being able to use any computer in the world and always have access to my passwords. Would love this! Please sign me up for the giveaway…i appreciate the opportunity.

  161. Craig said on December 2, 2012 at 12:39 am

    Currently using Keepass.

  162. Martin said on December 2, 2012 at 12:51 am

    I’ve been using Roboform. I am impressed with Lastpass paid version that includes the option to use a security usb key – a significant improvement in ease of use and added security over Roboform. I do not yet own Lastpass paid version and would like to win a license.

    Please count me in!

    I have been using Last Pass free for 4years now and as far as I concerned personally I find it the best pass word manager of them all i tried Robo form but it did not do the job for me.

  167. sut said on December 2, 2012 at 2:12 am

    Have used the free version for a number of years but the additional features that come with the premium version make the upgrade from the free version an attractive one. Thanks for making this giveaway available.

    With XMas just around the corner, I finally had the chance to build my new pc. Just waiting on the video card, and a password manager. Right now I’m testing numerous options, but LastPass is the cream of the crop. A premium license for use on my Galaxy 5 and HTC Raider would be nice as well, to go with my Ubuntu Network server, which serves a cloud-like network for internal app sharing among my pcs. Top all this off fellas and make this the best XMas yet, lol!!! You have a KILLER app!!

  169. Rodalpho said on December 2, 2012 at 2:59 am

    I’m currently using Lastpass, actually, but not premium. Great program, I got all my friends using it also.

  170. Glib said on December 2, 2012 at 3:17 am

    Lastpass free is the only password manager I have ever used till now. I think is one of the must-have free programs on your PC. I would love to try the premium version if ever I win. THanks for this amazing giveaway.

  171. Packetron said on December 2, 2012 at 3:46 am

    It would be terrific to try LastPass! It sounds like it will work on my ipad.

  172. Chris said on December 2, 2012 at 4:06 am

    This looks good for persons that like me who often forget passwords and are über paranoid.

  173. Johan Gustavsson said on December 2, 2012 at 4:07 am

    I am a long-time user of this sofyware, but I’ve never had a premium subscription (yet…), but Now, after reading your great rewiew, I may subscribe to premium, if I don’t win a subscription, that is…

  174. mike t said on December 2, 2012 at 4:19 am

    currently i use lastpass free.. I would love a shot at the premium version :)

    Count me in.

  176. John Bean said on December 2, 2012 at 5:04 am

    Would love to have the premium version of this program,Thank for the opportunity.

  177. aaronillen said on December 2, 2012 at 5:11 am

    I’ve used last pass for 2 years already and definitely love how it works. I also just bought a surface and the last pass app works quite well. With a little more browser integration, it’ll be perfect. I would definitely be interested in a premium account.

  178. Robert Patterson said on December 2, 2012 at 5:19 am

    Well, I use one of two strong passwords that I can remember on every site. Having only two passwords to remember sure makes it easier to remember. I Know I shouldn’t, but keeping up with lots of different passwords is hard. I’m going to give LastPass a try, and make all those passwords different.

  179. Lynn Rosebur said on December 2, 2012 at 5:26 am

    I use lastpass and I like it much better than roboform. I would love to have the premium version. It is an awesome program.

  180. Jimy said on December 2, 2012 at 5:27 am

    I use Lastpass and really like it. I used to use Roboform but definitely think LastPass is the best password manger out there.

  181. Ka Lam said on December 2, 2012 at 6:51 am

    I would like to try the mobile version. would be nice if I win some free access for 1 yr. :)

  182. Rehan said on December 2, 2012 at 7:25 am

    I just recently started using Last Pass(free) and loved it’s service, count me in for this. Thanks for the really nice giveaway Martin and best of luck to all.

  183. mohsen said on December 2, 2012 at 7:58 am

    I have been using LastPass for a number of years now, and I just love it! Actually, I don’t know what I’d do without it. LOL So many websites to log in to, so many usernames and passwords to forget! There have been just a few sites that it didn’t work on, but I think that was because it used a different way of signing in. I like that if I’m using someone else’s computer, I can go to the LastPass website and see my passwords, without having to install the app on that person’s browser. :-)

  184. ron said on December 2, 2012 at 7:58 am

    Hi, i used LastPass for several years now and i’m ready for the next (premium) step

  185. Vinod said on December 2, 2012 at 8:35 am

    Am not using any as of now. Thanks for this giveaway.

  186. Johnson said on December 2, 2012 at 9:30 am

    I use Firefox’s built-in password manager at present. Some security, huh? I have been reading positive reviews about LastPass for quite sometime, but I hesitate to give it a try (even the free version) because I am afraid that it will automatically change my existing passwords during installation. So far, I have not found any information about my concern on their web page.

  187. B. Moore said on December 2, 2012 at 9:48 am

    I use the Free version of LastPass.

    Been using it for over a year now and can’t believe I wasn’t using it sooner.

  188. florinflorin said on December 2, 2012 at 11:12 am

    I am using lastpass on a daily baisis and i dont know what i will do whithout it, it helped me many times, for example when some website changed domaind and you are required to use the same username and password to loggin, but as you wont remeber the password especially when you use so many websites daily like me, its just impossible to remeber all your passwords, than when the username and password search comes in help as an option, by helping you to recover your passwords, i recomand this to everybody and with xmarks its just magic ;))

  189. Shai said on December 2, 2012 at 11:26 am

    I’m using KeePass (Portable) with the PassIFox plugin for browser integration and DataBaseBackup for automatic database backup. I’m also using a trigger to auto-save any change that I made to the database (one caveat that I had with Keepass out-of-the-box was the need to manually save every change).
    This configuration works very well for me locally. I might be too conservative, but as of yet I’m still not convinced that short of local physical disaster storing sensitive data in the cloud is at least as secure as storing it locally in a (relatively) secure system. My main concern is that even if one uses strong password and takes all reasonable safety precautions, the data could still be vulnerable due to server hack. I don’t mind backuping the encrypted KeePass database file to the cloud as an off-site backup solution, because even if the online account is hacked, the hacker still needs to crack into the encrypted file, and this will probably take (much) longer than the hack being identified and alerted to allow the affected users to take preventive measures (in this case, changing the passwords so even if the database is eventually cracked, its content is longer valid).

    Overall, KeePass is a great password manager, but it is lacking when it comes to browser integration. In this department LastPass is probably much more convenient, certainly out-of-the-box. KeePass’ plugins are very nice addition, but one should exercise caution when using them (I recommend using just the bare minimum that is really needed to achieve certain functionality) because each one of them increases the possibility of introducing safety vulnerability (although the risk level is low to very low).
    Storing the KeePass database in the cloud (I think that currently only in DropBox due to software side limitations) enables one to use it with their Android based device. This is nice, but not perfect. The credentials need to be entered manually on the device, and on small screen this is not very convenient.

  190. Ruben said on December 2, 2012 at 11:43 am

    I’ve been using Keepass for years now. It was perfect for me since it worked on windows as well as linux. I recently opened a lastpass account which was easy since it has a feature for importing from keepass.
    I’d like to point out that it does allow importing from keepass. You need to export your account info from keepass into a suitable file format(xml I think) and then import into lastpass.
    Other than that, great review……. as usual :)

  191. Josh said on December 2, 2012 at 11:54 am

    I’m using LastPass. The interface is a little clunky and the whole thing is not beginner friendly IMO, but it’s reliable and reputable.

  192. HaTaIIIa said on December 2, 2012 at 1:03 pm

    …Using LP and would love to get premium :-)

  193. Rusira Dulanga said on December 2, 2012 at 1:11 pm

    Would love to try LastPass premium. have been using it for years now and it is absolutely invaluable

  196. Jack said on December 2, 2012 at 2:10 pm

    I have been using LastPass for a few months now and like it a lot. I am thinking of upgrading to the Premium version so I can use my passwords on my other devices – phone and IPad.

  197. zul said on December 2, 2012 at 2:19 pm

    Lastpass is the best, ghacks is the best!!!! i have us lastpass for many years and it put my mind at ease because i just need to remember one password.

  198. Thom said on December 2, 2012 at 2:29 pm

    Lastpass free…handy autofill shortcut and chrome extension makes it ideal to use

  199. Chuck said on December 2, 2012 at 2:39 pm

    I use Dashlane and although it is a good password manager, it does have some teething problems. I would like to get a license of lastpass premium to get me through this year while Dashlane is smoothing out its problems.

  200. Ashik said on December 2, 2012 at 3:08 pm

    I have been using the free version for quite a while so would love to have the premium version. This is a must program

  201. amberine said on December 2, 2012 at 3:13 pm

    Hello everybody,

    First, I want to thank you for this giveaway because I already have used lastpass non premium.

    I hope I can be chosen because i think it’s a good sofware, easy and useful.

    Thank you very much.

  202. Chris said on December 2, 2012 at 4:03 pm

    I’d like to use a password manager, but I don’t really know which to use. Perhaps I can start using LastPass.

  203. mecho said on December 2, 2012 at 4:04 pm

    nice share.. hope I get one.. thanks

  204. thebluejay said on December 2, 2012 at 4:07 pm

    I have been using LP for years now. I have paid for the Premium version not because I need the added features but because I so appreciated the work done to provde a free version of the BEST app on my computer (and I have TONS of apps!)

    Get it! Can’t be beat.

  205. barryzee said on December 2, 2012 at 4:15 pm

    I have been using LastPass free for a couple of years

  207. Tim Walters said on December 2, 2012 at 4:37 pm

    I’m currently using Keepass but am unhappy with the lack of Google Authenticator. Lastpass is definitely next!

  208. Yonatan said on December 2, 2012 at 6:08 pm

    I use LastPass on my PC, and though I tried other android password safes, I couldn’t find one that was as simple as LastPass on a PC. I hope their android app is as simple.

  209. April J said on December 2, 2012 at 6:29 pm

    I am not using a psd manager but I would like to

  210. ksavai said on December 2, 2012 at 7:12 pm

    Best password manager as of now. using free version since 3+ years I think

  211. Michael said on December 2, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    Had only been using built-in password saving features in my browser until recently, then tried LastPass and loved it. Fantastic service.

  212. Robert Oliver said on December 2, 2012 at 8:07 pm

    I am a longtime Roboform user, but primarily because of positive comments on this website, I have decided to give Lastpass a try. Thank you for coverage of favorite programs!

    I have used Roboform Password Manager in a previous promotion but I can’t afford its cost
    So I wanna try the premium LastPass
    Please count me in

  216. doug said on December 3, 2012 at 12:37 am

    I’m copying this over from your contest post where I first placed it. I’ve noticed that other people also did that! Oh well.

    I currently use a LastPass free acount. I prev. used Roboform (paid acct, but they disappointed me by first doing an upgrade with a required additional payment, which I did not choose, then Firefox broke the old Roboform pugin when they did an upgrade, and Roboform chose not to put out a maintenance update for paid users of the old version. I found that very aggravating. So I went to LastPass, and have been very pleased. Roboform’s parting shot was that its export function turned out to be an awfully clunky thing.

    Lastpass is overall great, w/ the exception that they seem to be determined that you will only get the most current updates to their program from them, vs. the browsers wanting you only to get same from them! Chrome has particularly been a pain with this, and half the time LastPass login functionality in Chrome or Comodo Dragon does not seem to be functional. If I restart Chrome or Comodo three or four times I can usually sort of get LastPass to work. I finally just set LastPass (in Firefox) to autologin if it sees that another browser is open, then start FF first, then open Chrome, to bypass the disfunctionality of the LP login in Chrome.

    LP’s support forums do not seem to recognise that any such difficulty wih Chrome or its drivative browsers exists. I found that surprising and disappointing.

  217. browngeek said on December 3, 2012 at 1:22 am


    Been a fan of Laspass for quite a while. I get the yearly subscription, because their mobile app is very useful.

    I however wish they would do a “family” subscription, so I could get other members of my family using it.

  218. Fifas said on December 3, 2012 at 1:28 am

    I use lastpass free for a while. The only thing that sucks is that I need a premium account for accessing the Windows Phone app….Not cool :P

  219. asoiku said on December 3, 2012 at 1:47 am

    I hope my entry isn’t to late.

    Lastpass is my first password manager i tried and it’s work for me. So i have no reason to try other manager yet.

  220. David said on December 3, 2012 at 3:02 am

    I want a premium account I use 1password and norton id safe.

    Thanks for the review and giveaway.

  229. Mike Paterson said on December 3, 2012 at 12:52 pm

    I have used this before but found it not quite as good as Roboform.

    I do however use LastPass Tab on my ipad and was able to import my roboform passwords to that so I can access all my passwords on my ipad without needing to buy any software!

  230. Aaunel said on December 3, 2012 at 1:30 pm

    I’ve been using Keepass here and there, but am mostly proud of my homebrew password encryption engine. Not sure what it would stand up to, though. Been considering moving to a decentralised solution like LastPass for a while; this could make or break me. :)

  231. Don said on December 3, 2012 at 5:28 pm

    I use LastPass free and Keepass but I’d LOVE an upgrade to the premium version! Thanks!

  232. CoinCoin said on December 3, 2012 at 6:11 pm

    I’m also a long time user of lastpass free. I tried other paswword managers but none fits my needs as lastpass did. Would really like to test the premium version on my iphone

  233. Ed Manning said on December 3, 2012 at 6:13 pm

    I’ve used LastPass for years and its the first plugin that I install in my browsers. I love the autofill feature and it helps me with some sites that assign random passwords that in no way I could remember.

    I’ve seen the Lastpass plugin in the market and have thought how much easier it would make for me to use my phone since I have to always go to a browser and look up my passwords on the last pass site.

    I must have over 100 sites’ passwords stored on last pass at the moment so I hope that don’t go anywhere soon :) (at least there is an option to export the passwords to a file which I do regularly). I use LastPass on at least 3 browsers at the moment and even login to the site when I’m at a friends computer to look up my stuff.

    What a nice early Christmas present it would be if I had a LastPass Premium :)

  234. Cecil Britton said on December 3, 2012 at 6:34 pm

    I have been a long time user of Roboform and stil have it installed. About a year ago I added Lastpass (free) and have become a big fan of the program and the way it integrates with Firefox. I particularly like the two factor security approaches that they are offering.

    I would love to have a free copy of the premium version. Thanks for the free raffle.

  235. yui said on December 3, 2012 at 7:13 pm

  240. Scott D said on December 4, 2012 at 6:36 am

    I’ve used LastPass for the past 2 or 3 years and couldn’t imagine not using it. I’ve used other ones like Roboform and KeePass, along with the built-in browser ones. I really love being able to find my login info at any time online, not having it in a file on one computer that I would have to copy to all my others, not to mention that I wouldn’t be able to check it out on my tablet or phone.
