After having trialled several password managers (1Password, Locko, Dashlane, KeepassX and Lastpass), Lastpass provides by far the best experience and the most features across multiple OSes (I use OS X, iOS, Android and occasionally Windows and Linux) and devices in my opinion.

Dashlane got excluded early on for its poor browser support. Nicely designed website though!

Keepass(X) was incredibly clunky across different OSes. Not for me.

Locko was still too new to have a robust featureset and cross-device support, but had a great UI for OS X and good pricing.

1Password (1P) is obviously popular among OS X users, and I think Agilebits seem responsive and helpful developers. The problems for 1P for me were the very poor authentication options compared to Lastpass (which has extensive multifactor, one-time use, grid and other authenication options), very basic browser integration and an IMO really excessive pricing scheme (across devices and updates).

Lastpass is obviously less polished UI-wise than the native mamagers like Locko and 1P on OS X. but its browser integration is far superior and that is really where I use 98% of my passwords (as I suspect many others). I love options like grid authentication, one-time passwords and other great lastpass features. And the pricing is *much* more reasonable than most of the other options (especially 1P) considering the better functionality for my needs. As a premium user, I've always had prompt responses to my service requests.

Lastpass are starting to build (in beta) a cloud storage option outside the US to alleviate some of the US cloud-based concerns, although do remember that all data is a heavily encrypted blob, and data privacy is a global not local issue.

I don't really like that it says "Free everywhere with no catches," but then it says you have to upgrade to the paid service if you want to use it with mobile devices.

It does say free "on all your COMPUTERS," so it's not false advertising. My point is just that syncing with mobile devices is the only type of syncing most users want.

Although I appreciate their decision to be honest and upfront about it, saying "Free for everything (except the one thing you want)" means this has no obvious advantages over Dashlane.

My first thought was that storing all my passwords online was a security risk. After thinking about it, though, most of my passwords are already stored online - though not in one location. But some of them are also in one location in my web browser. The question then is whether cloud storage is more or less secure than local storage. If you use a laptop anywhere but in your home the answer is probably that it's a crap shoot either way. The real difference is that if a thief gets access to your computer he will be able to steal personal information for one person. If a their gets access to an online service - as recently happened to Adobe - they can scoop up personal information on thousands and even millions of people.

My biggest concern about FastPass for Safari is how can they offer the service for free? If you accept the premise that you get what you pay for, how much can LastPass really be worth? If the service is free, how long will the company be around? If they have a way to make money and thus stay in business, they should disclose that up front.

Lastpass is a very well established company, they offer a paid premium service which is $12 per year which is how they pay their staff.

Regarding the lastpass cloud, I'd rather trust Lastpass which uses best-in-class encryption on the whole binary blob than a shared password for lots of websites who often don't even store passwords and other data encrypted in their own servers... See https://www.grc.com/sn/sn-256.htm for a more in-depth security evaluation from Steve gibson.

Well, after the 3.0 release, its time to say goodbye to lastpass. Lastpass thinks the pop out from the userid or password field is a good thing. It's totally intrusive and there is no way to turn that off! How crazy of them to think that everyone would want that feature and provide no way of turning that off.

This is a really awesome password manager for Safari. It remembers every single password I enter, and then automatically fills them in when needed. What a great program, especially as it's free!

After migrating from 1Password, I have to say thanks for this great password product. 1Password is always late supporting beta browsers and made BIG changes with the software to be listed on the Apple App Store.

1Password actually had to remove some long time features to get the listing so, I decided it was time to move on after 2 plus years of using 1Password. One feature I have been requesting for over 12 months is for 1Password to auto-fill the form but not submit it. @Fail even today on that request whereas LastPass has it now.

Where LastPass shines is it works with every version of every browser I have tested. Since we develop websites, we're always testing the new releases to see what might break. 1Password in my experience is late to the beta game and it's inconsistent across browsers.

Where LastPass needs to improve is with the browser and online interfaces. It needs more polish like 1Password. Once they get that licked, I think 1Password will need to continue to look over their shoulders.

As far as the security questions some have with LastPass being a cloud app? Please, you already store you passwords on way less websites so your no more likely to have your passwords compromised than with LastPass.

Um, under LOGIN SETTINGS in 1Password, you can turn off the auto-submit of entries, so all it does it fill in the info and you need to manually submit the entry.

Web-Jive you're an idiot comparing 1Password with any password manager out there let alone this one.

A feature you've been requesting for twelve months? "For 1Password to auto-fill the form but not submit it"??? That feature has been there since day one my friend.

Nothing out there comes close to 1Password, especially if you have multiple devices.

MacUpdate should impose an intelligence test before people are allowed to comment here.

Wanderer, I think you misplaced that explicative. You should save that for you! 1Password has NOT had that since day one because we had been using 1Password since the software started. We tried to put up with the move from a Safari plugin to their JS version they have now. The client embedded in Safari had much richer features but, they wanted to move to a JS based client to keep parity across browsers. That hurt their ability to have a rich Mac experience as a tradeoff for multi-browser compatibility. So, please get your facts straight before calling people idiots. Doesn't make you look good.

I hate the new 1password as well. 1password has been going downhill since they removed support from Camino (good have kept it going passively) and Fluid. I have to run all kinds of weird versions just to keep it running.

LastPass has been less of a pain in the backside.

Why would I ever want to store my password information with an online service?

I have a safety deposit box, multiple computers, not all of which are online and many offsite options to store them.

If we have not learned already how porous web security models can be, I don't know that we ever will.

In short, even the idea of storing any of my data "in the cloud" is one this luddite finds incredibly naive.

I don't feel at all comfortable storing any of my privileged data "in the cloud" either.
However, I don't think that you can accurately characterize yourself as a Luddite since you ARE using computers and the internet.
A true Luddite would give computers and the internet a wide berth, no?

I'm tired of people saying how unsafe the cloud is. I bet you I can break into your house much easier than hacking the cloud. Even if I did manage to crack the cloud, what are the chances of me finding your specific details among the millions out there? And even if I did stumble upon it, what are my chances of cracking the encryption?

Nonsense.

LastPass is an American company and therefore after the latest Snowden revelations one has to conclude that the data is vulnerable and the NSA at least has a backdoor into your account (or that the keys are vulnerable to brute force in a clean room environment). LastPass can claim reasonable doubt if they only pass on encrypted data to the NSA which the NSA has to crack themselves without the constraints of limited tries per minute.

@Whitebuck - Well your statement is NOT really TRUE.

LastPass is as safe as your Master Password.
The LastPass database of passwords is encrypted on your Mac / PC BEFORE it is sent to LastPass. Not even LastPass can read your passwords. But of course, if LastPass gets hacked and someone steals this encrypted database, the hackers could get decrypt it and steal your passwords if you used a WEAK Master Password.

LastPass is constantly trying to improve its product from hackers.

But if you only want to log on to websites etc using Macs or PCs that you own and control (ie NOT using Macs / PCs in public libraries etc), then I would recommend KeePassX or 1Password. Both KeePassX and 1Password store your database of passwords in an encrypted form on your Mac or PC. (No need to worry about your database of passwords being stolen from a central website (unless your use Dropbox for syncing).

If you want to be able to log into websites using ANY Mac / PC (even the Macs/PCs in public places like public libraries), LastPass is a great solution but I prefer SuperGenPass. Nothing is EVER sent to a central website. SuperGenPass is easy to use and is free. See http://supergenpass.com/

A couple months ago LastPass reported suspected data exfiltration. Never heard what came of it but they acted very quickly. I used LastPass to store non critical passwords (e.g. everything except financial, billing, banking, investing, etc.) but have since moved to 1Password which stores everything locally.

LastPass's response to the potential data breach was exceptional though online data is never as safe as offline data.

Why would you store your important passwords anywhere but your brain? Storing them anywhere else has at least some amount of risk.

I use LastPass (with Firefox) for forums passwords or dumb websites that require you to login to download updates, etc. I don't care what happens to those sites or that password.

LastPass was a pretty cool thing until a few days ago when it started to act very sketchy. It constantly was asking for my password saying that it encountered an error logging in.

I think my database may have gotten corrupted.

I will continue to use it on iPad/iPhone, but 1Password on my Macs!

"I will continue to use LastPass on iPad/iPhone, but 1Password on my Macs! "

The beauty of 1Password is that it can sync among all of your devices, why use two utilities? That defeats the purpose.
