LastPass is completely FREE! It saves as many website logins as you like, has the 1-click login feature, even exports your logins from RoboForm and many others. It has all the features of RoboForm like secure notes, password generator.

It works with Firefox, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome (version 4 only), many others. LastPass adds a small 'compact toolbar' to Firefox like Adblock Plus, once it is clicked it has many options, it's better than RoboForm which adds a huge toolbar which takes up screen space.

The other main difference between RoboForm and LastPass is that the former saves your logins on your computer and encrypts them. However, LastPass saves your logins on the LastPass servers, but don't worry. All your logins are encrypted by AES 256 method, which means only YOU can have access to them by a master password. They are only decrypted on your computer so always remain encrypted on the servers. Even RoboForm developers are going to use this method in the future, they are currently testing it.

My own experience tells me this:

*Quicker than RoboForm because it doesn't have to keep accessing the hard drive to access your logins so RoboForm slows Firefox, once you install LastPass, you will notice a speed increase compared to RoboForm (make sure you uninstall RoboForm after you have exported your logins to LastPass)
*More reliable, sometimes RoboForm failed to fill in logins for some reason, I tried everything, re-installs like there's no tomorrow but it just seems this is just the way it is.
*You can choose the look of the toolbar in LastPass, you can have a small icon or make it look like RoboForm's toolbar.
*You can access your logins from any computer which has LastPass installed!, plus you can put your logins on your USB flash drive. Many more...

5 star reviews from pretty much every reviewer, here are some:

so someone who steals your computer only has to crack one password to have access to ALL your passwords. Storing ALL of your passwords in one place is never a good idea.
#2
Ofcourse what you mentioned is the tradeoff..

But considering you will use all memorable passwords (which are easy to guess for a hacker )and possibly.. share passwords across sites.. is even worse..
#3
I'd prefer to remember one hard-to-crack password than 20 easy ones that have to be memorable. Considering the number of people who use the same password everywhere, this could be a good way of encouraging them to use multiple passwords and one "hard" one, which wouldn't be a bad thing.

PC Magazine gave it a good writeup: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2343565,00.asp

As far as I can see, it's free and it offers a service which some will find useful, so with suitable warnings I don't see why it should be voted cold.

I've been using lastpass for over an year now (switched from Roboform).. and have no issues on security.
Hot from me..

1. How is someone going to guess your password if it's very secure? like: jutJst'[9\dime?>

2. Plus this program protects against keyloggers.

3. When you shut your browser, you automatically get logged out. If you want, you can choose to logout automatically after 15 mins or whatever time you want...

This can be done for most passwords anyway, if somebody gets the password for your email account then they just need to click on forgotten password and then check your email account. So make sure that your email password is secure!

I've been a very happy user of Lastpass for a while now with absolutely no complaints. Not only does it allow me to use more obscure passwords but it makes logging on so much easier.

Sounds good, but am I missing something when I worry about what happens if they go under?

However, LastPass saves your logins on the LastPass servers, but don't worry. All your logins are encrypted by AES 256 method, which means only YOU can have access to them by a master password. They are only decrypted on your computer so always remain encrypted on the servers.


What if their servers have gone with them? :?

You can always print out your passwords and keep them in a safe place. Apart from that yes it would be a big inconvenience, but most websites make it quite easy to reset your password, and those that don't (banks for example) you'd just have to telephone. Justr make sure that you don't forget your email password!

Thanks - this could be the answer to my prayers! I am getting a macbook pro for Christmas but have only just realised that I won't be able to use it with Roboform (I use the mobile version roboform2go) and I know I am going to miss it terribly. Am I right in believing this will work with a macbook?
