LastPass: All Your Password In One Place

I hear often from our clients that they are frustrated by the array of passwords they are required to remember. There are a number of tools available online to manage your password database, but it seems LastPass has really shined above the rest. I’ve been using LastPass for a little while now, and I’m able to sync all my passwords to the cloud, and use one, difficult Master Password to access all the data in my account. With the premium version ($12/month), you also have access to a mobile app that allows you to view and manage passwords on-the-go.

Here’s the bar I get when I log into Facebook:


It basically gives me the option to auto-fill with the password in my database. The bar is powered by a plugin, which is available for Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome. If you have multiple passwords for one site (maybe a couple Gmail accounts, for example) – it will offer a dropdown menu on the AutoFill button, allowing you to select the account you want to sign in with.

It might seem similar to the built-in password management tools in each respective browser, but I think LastPass keeps everything more organized, and allows a 3rd party source to manage and maintain – one focused solely on that task.

    I swear by LastPass. I would also recommend their sister company-Xmarks-for all you virtual bookmarking. The service works in tandem with LastPass across all browsers.

    X-Marks is a great product. I’ve used it since it was called FoxMarks. But yes, both play very well together, and are quite seamless.
