Likelihood to Recommend

Google Authenticator

Google is well-suited for the residential or home office user. The app is free and easy to use immediately after downloading onto the mobile device. In limited cases, it would also be well-suited for the small business with a tight budget. I would not recommend Google Authenticator in larger organizations that need central management and in-depth monitoring of security.

LastPass for Business

LastPass's best feature is the ability to auto generate random secure passwords that are much more secure than passwords users generate themselves. It also allows organizations to stop reusing admin passwords, and assign unique passwords to every device and account. The auto fill feature works well on most websites but it does have issues with some applications, so that would not be a reason to purchase

Pros

Google Authenticator

  • One strength is in how it checks identity to stop unwanted people from getting access.
  • Another strength is in cutting down on the frustration of users for the authentication process.
  • With the pandemic and needing to work away from the office it also provided additional security in keeping our network/infrastructure safe.

LastPass for Business

  • Share passwords: One of the key features for the business was being able to securely share our password or provide access into particular business accounts for our team members.
  • Autofill: Something I didn't personally feel I needed till you're online purchasing multiple times a week. This feature allows you to auto-fill those details with a click of a button and saves you time.
  • Generate Passwords: We are ultimately overwhelmed with the number of passwords we have, and it's made even worse when that 90-day comes, and you have to think of a new password that you have to remember. This feature allows you to create unique and strong passwords and generate ones when you're all out of new password suggestions.

Cons

Google Authenticator

  • I once performed a factory reset of my smartphone which had Google Authenticator. I didn't have a backup for the device. When I restored my phone with the same google account, I was not able to restore the authenticator app settings. I had to add all the keys back into the app to use it. This is cumbersome, but I understand it is set up this way for security reasons.
  • I don't like the ease with which it lets you delete a key. If I accidentally delete a key, I am doomed to get my 2FA key reset, unless I still have the QR code saved somewhere.

LastPass for Business

  • It doesn't allow people to copy and save passwords from shared folders into a personal vault
  • There should be a feature that allows more users to be admins with access to the console
  • LastPass should only save work-related passwords when logged into G suite
  • Too many folks use LP for Business for personal password protection

LastPass has been a game changer for me. I keep more than 100 passwords for financial sites for my company and many of those sites will automatically log you out if you've been idle for 10 or 15 minutes. Typing and re-typing credentials is not only extremely inefficient, but it also adds the risk that you could type them incorrectly and have your account locked. LastPass fills in all my credentials automatically and helps me to generate secure passwords for new sites. I will always want this software on my machine because it makes my life so much easier.

I login to LastPass when I turn on my computer in the morning and I use it throughout the day. I cannot express how much easier, quicker, smoother (running out of adjectives) this is than our old Excel spreadsheet. I don't bookmark pages anymore, I put them in last pass as all I have to do is search for the site name, press launch and because I have auto signin for most of the sites, I'm in and doing my business in seconds. Truly a blessing!

I have found Google’s support to be hit or miss. There are times when they are very responsive, and I get my issue resolved quickly, and there are times where a response from them takes weeks. There is no in-between. But my support experience with this particular product is nonexistent because I have not had a problem with it yet. Hopefully, we do not have any problems with it either.

Overall we've been happy with LastPass support. They are quick to respond and answer any questions that we may have. More than that, the documentation that is available is fairly thorough and helps reduce the number of times that we need to reach out to support in the first place.
On top of that, there is a growing community of LastPass users who are willing to share their experiences and help answer questions as well.

Educating users on password management and the basics of the solution is key to then have them successfully start using it themselves. Many have taken it further and now use it for personal passwords as well.

Alternatives Considered

Google Authenticator

Google Authenticator is only really competing against SMS two-factor. Instead of getting a text from random phone numbers all the time, you go to one app/ website to get access to any account. In addition, we can allow our members to share the same Google account (with a master password changed frequently) and allow them access to any account login they need.
Matt Hoffman | TrustRadius Reviewer

LastPass for Business

I can save my own passwords for me to use on my phone or computer but it doesn't allow me to share to others. I much prefer LastPass and find it useful for not only business but for personal reasons as well. No more having to remember every last sign in or password. It all just gets to be so much, LastPass makes it easier.

Accurate and comprehensive reporting for IT managers of the situations used, as well as the possibility of creating user groups and defining different access levels, and each user can have a separate folder for his work. Usability on all devices is easily possible, [with] great Single Sign One integration with Microsoft Azure Active Directory and [a] huge list of pre-integrated apps.

Return on Investment

Google Authenticator

  • More secure data = less worried about a data breach.
  • Takes longer to log in, and if I don't have my phone then I have to go looking for it, so it really makes it so that you can't be without your phone, which in certain instances is annoying or not possible and can hold up work time.
  • Everyone is willing to use the same program because everyone likes Google—makes it easier to manage.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

LastPass for Business

  • We've seen a marked decrease in the amount of chatter related to requesting logins and passwords for sites.
  • We've increased our security around access control and password management greatly with this tool, cutting down on the risk of identity theft and unauthorized account access.
