What does this give you over keychain?

What does this give you over keychain?


Exactly the same thing i wonder it has a few nifty things but keychain or the free last pass browser chore plugin does the trick?
lastpass.com/mis…php


Considering that lastpass appears to do everything that most people could want at the free tier that 1Password offers for a fee I fail to see any real benefits of this? I'd say it has a UI that ties in to the Mac style but otherwise not much else.
I used to have this, but now use Safe in the Cloud instead. The Pro Version is only £4.99 for life. I have it installed on my iPhone, iPad, android phone, Mac and PC (though the none iOS are the free version.
Personal opinion having used both 1pass and lastpass. Use 1pass. It is a far superior experience, a more active support team and isn't owned by logmein!

It's got built in support for Troy Hunt's pwnedpasswords which will check your hashes against the list and notify you to change the compromised ones. It also has a travel mode so the pesky authorities don't ask you to surrender your encryption keys.

Just do it!

Things like 2 factor generator support instead of a separate app and you only need to set it up once and follows you with your account if you get a new device.
If you're an iOS user it provides automatic filling via the keyboard in iOS 12, like keychain but not other apps.
You can add attachments.
It works with most browsers, unlike keychain...

It's a great app / service.

Opposite story from me. I dropped 1pass for lastpass because it actually has more features, the premium version even trumps the business version of 1pass.

Support for Troy Hunts stuff (WatchTower) has actually been in lastpass for a long time already under the LastPass Security Challenge.

Lastpass supports multifactor in a variety of methods. From apps to physical keys.

While 1pass is certainly pretty I found lastpass to be less annoying when using the browser extensions.

Anyway what's more important to know here is that these password managers are functionally very different and a person should focus more on that on deciding what to go with. Like how lastpass is cloud based while 1pass can store your database locally.

I'm almost 100% confident that lastpass does not have pwnedpasswords support. They are free to add it though if they integrate with the API.

The Security Challenge feature goes through your password vault checking any problems ranging from known/weak passwords to websites that have been breached. Lastpass also notify users whenever a security problem has occurred with a website the user has in their vault.

It's basically the same thing except it just doesn't have Troy Hunts name written all over it for fancy advertising

For 1, Troy is a well respected security researcher.
2, that isn't anywhere near the same as Troy's service. They may have rolled their own service rather than using his very secure API. Now there is nothing wrong with that, but it missed lots of passwords that Toys API picked up on when I moved. I'd also want to know how that service from LastPass actually works going forward as Troy's does partial hash matching over the API.

This is an incredible application. Had it since the early days of its existence. I managed to get it when you could buy it outright and not have to pay a subscription. Wouldn’t be without it

From a security point of view, it's the most secure thing you can do other than memorise all of your unique and long passwords/phrases.

They are encrypted in these services you know
Why would anyone trust anything like this? No one owns a bit of paper and a pen anymore? By far the safest method..
Also used both LastPass and 1Password and much prefer to use LastPass, mainly as the javascript login script on Chrome on 1Password is buggy as hell.

I said nothing about the integrity of Troy. Stop getting weirdly defensive about him. Watchtower literally connects to his servers and checks for breaches. Also using his "very secure API" is actually just a peace of mind for the consumer, it isn't a plus since lastpass has the vault in its own servers as well as it's security challenge software.
If lastpass missed your password issues vs 1pass then good news for you. Hard for me to care about that lastpass uses Troys breach data anyway so to me it's no difference.

At the end of the day Watchtower is a small convenience. Anyone can use the official site from Troy and Lastpass has it's own version too. The question is do people prefer lastpass where the feature is available for free or 1pass where they have to fork over $2.99 a month (minus this deal).

Well I guess that's the end of that conversation then.

I was merely replying with the other side of this coin but I'm sensing we've gone as far as we can go.

So I'll agree on the point that a consumer should pick a service like this and should pick it based on their needs and the services merits.

I may be a lastpass fan but I still voted hot on this deal because it's good
As long as people are actually using a password manager compared to pen and paper then the world will be a better place.

Why? Pen and paper much more secure, people don't break in to your house to steal paper with your passwords on... There is NO safer method..
I’ve been an active user for about 6 years. Best thing I’ve ever paid for. Syncs across platforms and devices in a much more customisable version of Keychain. You can save way more types of data too

Alot of which you have used once or twice and not used for years and unlikely to be used again.. Dormant passwords on a cloud, good luck... Strange how most security experts agree with me...

Well 1 big benefit of these managers is to make your life easier. I have 95 website logins saved and over 20 secure notes containing various details (basically digital pen and paper, encrypted).
Writing all that **** down isn't easy or convenient.

But we can still do a safety comparison. Lets say someone is trying break into our email accounts;

If someone breaks into your house they will eventually find your little booklet of secrets with an email and password written down.

In my case breaking into my house gives them nothing. They wont even be able to access my PC since it will be locked down. No lastpass access for them.
Lets say In a bizarre twist of luck they somehow guessed my password for lastpass. They are still locked out because it requires multi-factor authentication where they also need to approve the access from my phone, which they also wont be able to access without me authorising it. Or even using a physical key (eg Yubikey).

I think that someone could only ever access my details if i hand over my credentials for my password manager, my authenticator and my physical key.

Password managers encourage difficult randomly generated passwords. Stuff you would never bother write down on paper. And every single one of them should be different too so dormant passwords in the cloud means nothing.

Security experts definitely do not agree with you. Any security researcher, secure businesses and even the NCSC all say you should use managers and 2FA.

Life easier is poor excuse and approach to security.. 99.999% of burglars are too thick to use the passwords if they found them, which would mean ignoring your car keys, money and jewellery and hunting out a tiny booklet no one knows about.. Talk sense mate.. It doesn't have written on the front of said booklet my secret passwords, it's written in a Manor no one would understand but me anyway..

How about this then. Lets accept that "you" are superior to a password manager. Congrats! then a manager may not be for you.

However to the majority of the world a manager is useful for them. People can be lazy and make poor decisions on handling their online activities. A manager provides incredible security compared to what the "typical" person would do, along with convenience and speed.

People can't be bothered to remember loads of complicated passwords thats why they duplicate them across loads of websites or use terrible ones like password123.
People also can't be bothered to write all that stuff down in a booklet, and refer to it every time they want to log into something.
People also can't be bothered to use complex passwords.

A manager solves all of these problems with a few button clicks, no memory of your own required.
