LastPass Editor's Review

Nearly every computer and internet users need to deal with a lot of passwords and this number only goes up with time! Remembering so many passwords becomes tedious with time and that can add to inconvenience. While you can assign the task of remembering passwords for various websites and online services to a web browser, that is not entirely safe. It makes sense to use a capable password manager app that can store all your passwords securely and simplifies web browsing simultaneously. LastPass is a nifty and feature rich password manager app that can serve needs of most computer users. The web browser integration and subsequent one click logging in experienced offered by it is amazingly convenient.

You will need to set up an account with LastPass to use the password manager service. It can be done when you install the app. While installation is not tedious itself, you need to be careful when setting the master password. This one should be a combination of different characters and numbers. The downer is you should not forget it at any cost. If you forget this, the account cannot be decrypted even by the company. This freeware app runs on Windows XP and subsequent versions.

During the setup, you can choose a preferred language, install LastPass plugin for third party browsers etc. The app will prompt you to import passwords deemed insecure from IE, Chrome or Firefox. It disables the browser’s feature for capturing passwords too. If you use more than one PC at home, LastPass can be installed on them. The data syncing is automatic. There is no mobile device support in free version though. LastPass desktop client installs a system tray icon to give you quick access to most features of the app.

Apart from fetching passwords from web browsers, LastPass can also import passwords from other password managers. When you type usernames and passwords in a newly visited website, these are captured by the app. If a website has some mechanism to thwart password capturing that can be bypassed by clicking on browser button and selecting the option ‘Save All Entered Data’. Like every top notch password manager app, LastPass helps generate a strong password.

As you get back to a previously visited website, LastPass fills in saved data fast. The LastPass browser button has a menu that pops up when you click on it. Within it, you can access all the saved websites. The sites can be segregated into categories. The menu’s search bar offers you access to a site fast.

Like most other password managers, LastPass does a nice job of form auto filling online. There are options to create several form-fill profiles. You can also generate credit card specific profiles. The form filling is very accurate. When you choose to fill a web form manually, it does not skip the app’s attention either. When you hit submit button, it prompts you to save the data under a new profile.

It is possible to link the LastPass account to Google Authenticator. This offers one extra level of security, as it is. It requires use of master password along with a onetime code that is sent to a phone of your choice. LastPass also offers Grid Multifactor, an additional low-tech authentication measure. While competing password managers offer some type of additional authentication options, you will be hard pressed to find another that offers so many options, for free.

 With LastPass Security Challenge changing a weak stored password is simple. If you want to share a specific login credential with your family members, LastPass has the option inbuilt. It can be set to warn you when you log into a non-HTTPS site. You can choose to set LastPass to log off when computer is locked or screensaver is activated.

Positive Points:
•    Browser Plug-in works well.
•    Multi level authentication possible.
•    Excellent web form auto fill up.
•    Options to change weak passwords.

Negative Points:
•    Lacks mobile device support.
•    Forgetting master password can be disastrous.

Conclusion:
LastPass is a feature rich password manager that comes with enough bells and whistles to satisfy security conscious web users. It is easy to install and configure. It supports most popular web browsers and browser plug-in integration is hassle free. The app helps you create hard to attack passwords for every site you visit and its desktop client offers easy access to the vault and most used features. It can also warn you about potentially insecure websites. The web form auto fill up feature also works very well. You need to remember the master password or else decrypting information can be near impossible. The only major glitch in the free edition of this app is lack of mobile device support. However, for a freeware password manager, it is hard to find a better alternative to LastPass.
