We are currently deploying LastPass to a group of beta testers, with the hope of potentially making it available enterprise-wide. I'm one of less than 10 who is currently using the product to solve the problem of maintaining multiple user IDs and passwords. I probably have more than 75 active passwords that I was keeping in a local OneNote file. However, you still have to type your credentials into the websites or copy and paste. With LastPass, these are automatically completed through the software.
  • Keeps multiple passwords and user IDs for both computer and mobile applications.
  • Allows user to remember just one master password to access all accounts.
  • Recommends secure, unique passwords so you don't have to try to come up with them and risk repeating / forgetting any.
  • At times it can overwrite your user name with another piece of data. For instance, if you have multiple sign in points on the same site or if you have an additional level of authentication - like a token key - it may overwrite a part of your credentials.
  • Sometimes if you move the credentials into folders - for instance, Business, Banking, Personal - it may not pull up the credential the next time you access the website. It would seem that it matters where it is stored in LastPass when you save your data.
  • It won't always auto-populate your credentials when accessing them from a website.
  • They have a sharing feature - so you can provide passwords to other individuals. But we've have difficulty getting this to work.
I recommend this to any business professional who has to handle multiple accounts or has accounts that time out very quickly. It's no surprise that you spend a GREAT DEAL of time finding and typing passwords. And worse, even once you get all the information stored somewhere, you may have to create a new password again after 60 days. That old way of doing things needs to go by the wayside. When I see someone with a paper book full of passwords, I spread the news.

We use LastPass to store web, system and application passwords, encryption keys, and service account information for our development and IT departments. It's great to have a comprehensive, easy-to-use product where we can centrally store our important information and share it with the appropriate users within our organization.
  • The convenience of having all of you passwords secured and stored in one central location
  • Saves time by automatically logging in to websites
  • Not having to remember an endless list of long, convoluted passwords
  • Thankfully, support is rarely needed - because LogMeIn support is abysmal
  • Sometimes the web plugins for Chrome/Firefox stop working, but this is as much a Mozilla/Google problem as it is a LogMeIn/LastPass problem
If you have a lot of passwords or keys that need to be secured, centrally located, shareable, and manageable, LastPass for Business is a great solution. Not as feature-rich as a SecretServer type offering, but it is also much more affordable. It is also a great solution for the less tech-savvy.

We use LastPass to securely share passwords to databases and servers. This allows us to keep secure track of where passwords are, without having to worry about sensitive information being exposed on each developers computer in plaintext files. Since LastPass can be used anywhere online it allows us to move faster, and to use more secure passwords.
  • Admin management is nice to have at a higher level.
  • Secure storage of passwords in the LastPass system is much more secure than slack or email.
  • I have been using LastPass personally for eight years, and never had an issue.
  • Sometimes LastPass will miss login fields for unknown reasons
  • The chrome plugin sometimes wants to fill in non-password fields, or security question fields with your password
  • The popups whenever LastPass thinks you changed a password can be annoying on certain sites, not many.
When a database admin creates a new database and needs to share credentials, LastPass offers the most secure way, depending on the developers master password, to share them out. I have seen passwords shared over email in zip files with a different password shared over Slack, but that still leaves the file on the developer's machine, and in plaintext after unzipping.

We decided to evaluate a couple of the industry password vaults for some of our multi-media folks that have to share passwords off-site. We haven't actually bit the bullet and bought the business edition, but several folks have converted to LastPass for their personal password management.
  • LastPass's mobility is a key strength. It has great mobile device integration and can be updated from anywhere.
  • The ease of organizing the password vault and it's overall simplicity of use make it an easy product to implement.
  • Helpful tools such as browser extensions and easy to use password generator elevate the product.
  • Parts of the mobile phone integration isn't as easy to figure out as I'd like.
  • Sometimes context menus vary slightly across devices which can complicate the use of LastPass slightly.
  • The 'launch' feature in the vault is sporadic. I would expect it to automatically log you in, but it only does about 40% of the time.
LastPass is a cloud solution, so you have all of your traditional security heartburn associated with that. That being said, it is very easy to use, and its ability to sync across platforms has undeniable benefits. We have a different solution for in-house, on-premise admin credentials, but folks that have to be in the field and use multiple devices regularly appreciate it.

Our organization uses a multitude of websites and services to run our operations and LastPass for Business has enabled us to cut down on time required to login to these sites and greatly increased our security. Our team is made up of both technical and non-technical resources, before Lastpass for Business, logins and passwords were stored on a shared Google Sheet with very poor access control and very lax security. As our business matured and our clients demanded more rigorous security controls, the need became apparent for a password management solution that was both user-friendly to accommodate all levels of technical expertise on the time, robust and scalable. Several solutions were looked at, both in-house and external vendors and our business settled on Lastpass for Business. One of the key selling points was that most of our team were already using Lastpass for their own personal use so their familiarity with software played a key role in adopting it. Our BU leaders and IT Staff now easily control access to the tool and we've integrated it in the onboarding and exiting of employees. We now meet and exceed many security requirements and have been able to adopt very complex passwords that aren't easy to guess or remember. The browser extension for Chrome is also very easy to use, intuitive and requires little to no effort.
  • Ability to have LastPass for Business create very complex passwords beyond the minimum requirements, we typically aim for 24-character passwords where supported and shy away from words which could be used in a brute force or dictionary attack.
  • Integration with major OS and Browsers make LastPass for Business a clear winner for being user-friendly, intuitive and adaptable.
  • Access controls are greatly improved over the previous in-house worksheet method of keeping track of logins and passwords.
  • Small learning curve with how to use the tool and how to have it auto-populate login fields automatically or force it to when it doesn't happen on its own.
  • Difficult to integrate or use both LastPass for Personal use and LastPass for Business use together at the same time.
We use many SaaS in our BU, I can count about 20 off the top of my head and they all have separate and distinct logins. Some sites are used more often than others and we forbid employees from saving login information locally on their browser. When needing to access one of these sites or know what resources are available to our team, employees can open the LastPass for Business Vault and all our sites, including the most frequently accessed ones are right there. The speed at which our team can now view and access sites had definitely cut down on downtime and chatter within the channels for people looking for logins and passwords.

LastPass is being used by my organization as a means to securely share login credentials for certain third-party services as well as store login information for individual user accounts with certain other systems. The entire organization is using LastPass and as such has enabled us to monitor usage, password strength, and better control access to our accounts.
  • Encourage good passwords: with the ability to easily generate a good, secure password that doesn't need to be typed in moving forward, it encourages users to have good passwords since they don't need to think of them and then remember them later on.
  • Credential sharing: with the team solution it is very easy to share credentials when needed and revoke access when complete without ever revealing the password.
  • Browser integration: the browser plugin makes it easy to use as it is always available whenever a password/login is required.
  • Sharing outside the organization could be improved by not being limited to 5 users per shared folder as sometimes it is necessary to share credentials to more people.
  • I haven't had much luck with the automatic password change feature for some services, but that's really not a big deal.
LastPass is well suited when operating within an organization that has a lot of people coming and going who need to have access to restricted resources. We make use of a lot of interns and it is nice to be able to grant access to various services through LastPass when they arrive (never sharing the actual passwords) and then easily remove access when their internship ends. LastPass is also well suited in enforcing good security practices with strong passwords.

We implemented LastPass a few years ago as we had a massive gap with passwords. We use a lot of shared accounts for various vendors and suppliers and the accounts were constantly being locked out. We now use shared vaults, backed by AD sync and groups to automatically provision the correct access to the right teams.

It has also reduced our password resets on individual accounts dramatically and increased our security on enforcing stronger passwords, pushing new accounts into vaults as opposed to emailing them around the place and stopping people writing passwords down in books and on sticky notes.
  • Password Autofill - Since our users no longer need to know what their password actually is now, we can enforce strong, long passwords.
  • AD Sync - Makes life as an admin so much easier. We have set up a process when provisioning users into AD that once they have their departmental group it will automatically provision them the required vaults for their job roles.
  • Push Sites to Users - This feature is invaluable. When we create new user accounts, we simply use a CSV file to push the account details into the user's vaults. No need to email or print welcome emails full of passwords.
  • Roles - The roles are relatively new and the idea behind them is good. The only thing that I want to be able to do is give the admins of other systems access to use the push sites to users feature. That way when non-IT people are creating accounts for other systems they can push the accounts in without sending to IT to do.
  • Pricing - We have had massive pricing increases each year since we brought it in. They say it is because they have implemented so many new features, which is fair enough except we don't use many if any of the new features. If they could bring in a modular pricing model so we can pay for the base system and then purchase any required add-ons we use, that would be much more beneficial for us. We nearly had to scrap the system this renewal simply because the price had quite literally tripled since the first invoice.
  • Update Username - I came across an issue with our environment as we have multiple email domains that when a user moved departments and their domain changed in AD, it would break the LastPass connection between them. It must identify on an email level as opposed to some kind of GUID. When we wanted to update the usernames of everyone to a generic domain to mitigate this problem. We had to do it manually with each user as there was no way to do it from the console.
LastPass is essential in every company and in everyday life. I have it set up with our 235 users across 2 companies, as well as personally at home. I no longer use generic passwords across all my systems, I now have long complex passwords, secured with LastPass & MFA. I have no situations in which LastPass is not suitable, other than the affordability of the Enterprise version. There is a free version with basic functionality which could be suitable in small companies but is not sustainable in larger companies that need global administration and AD syncing.

Weak passwords present a real threat to sensitive information and each day we need to login in a number of online services. Security experts tell us that passwords must be long, not based on real words and, ideally, mix letters, numbers, and symbols. They also tell us to use a specific password for each service. This makes difficult to remember correctly an increasing number of passwords. In a professional environment, this can lead to all sort of problems. LastPass provides an easy and safe way to access different services without having to rely on one's memory, or even on text notes.
  • It is easy to set up. It works as a browser add-on, allowing to enter passwords manually or in bulk.
  • It works seamlessly, offering to save passwords as you log in to apps and websites.
  • It has a nice "Security Challenge" feature, which tests the strength of your passwords.
  • It stores and automatically fills web forms.
  • LastPass's autofill function can be confusing for newbies.
  • The Vault, LastPass's main interface screen, could benefit from a better interface design.
  • LastPass is accessed through entering a master password. Despite the fact that this master password is not stored in LastPass servers, the hint for it can be stored, harming a bit of the security aspect.
LastPass is recommended both for professional and home users. It shines as an easy way to access websites and apps without having to enter a single password. It allows for the creation of strong passwords, and even suggests them, enhancing the security of the work environment, particularly in businesses that deal with very sensitive data. It also warns when you enter a password already used in another site, actively helping to develop safer internet habits.

We use LastPass only in certain areas of the company. It's not a company-wide deployment. It helps us keep a central location for shared system passwords and other relevant information. Each LastPass entry can have notes, URLs, and a lot of other information that is useful to other users and admins. The biggest benefit is that the LastPass vault has to be kept up to date as part of its functionality--meaning that the information kept for a system or a site is always up to date if it's used or accessed at all.
  • I like that you can keep personal credentials in it as well as corporate ones without switching accounts. Only the credentials you share can be seen by anyone else.
  • LastPass is cross-platform meaning that I can use it on my phone, on a Mac, on a PC, on a Chromebook, and even on a Kiosk system at a hotel.
  • LastPass can be protected by two-factor authentication, which I strongly suggest that you use because passwords alone are not good protection.
  • Sometimes when you update your password, LastPass adds a new entry rather than just updating the old one.
  • I wish sharing credentials was a little easier to do. It's kind of a multi-step, non-intuitive process to share and I'm never really sure that the credentials are shared.
  • After someone shares a credential, you have to run a refresh in LastPass, which is kind of annoying. Sharing should refresh automatically so that the newly shared credential is automatically available to all parties.
Whether you need to easily keep track of multiple site credentials as an individual or as a group, it is very useful and really essential. It is a secure vault in which to store your information. I can't think of any scenario where it wouldn't work or would be inappropriate. LastPass will generate very strong passwords for you and then not reveal them unless you explicitly want them revealed, which is a great feature. I see LastPass being useful for groups of people who share access to systems or to sites and any updates made are automatically available to all group members. It's very handy and I think it's an essential tool.

LastPass is used across the entire organization for secure password management. It has a variety of applications and uses: it can generate secure passwords, store passwords, share passwords within an organization, and save one's personal passwords. Additionally, secure information can be stored within LastPass (for instance, login information or PINs) for reference. It provides a storage platform and integrates with 2FA (2-factor authentication) services for added security to private or sensitive information.
  • Integrates with web browsers.
  • Organizes stored password/access information for sharing and single-user access to passwords.
  • Integrates with 2-factor authentication services for an added layer of security.
  • Interface, setup, usability can be a little counterintuitive for new users.
  • No warnings prior to auto-populating insecure forms on websites.
LastPass is great for storing, organizing, and sharing secure information. Its primary purpose is to store passwords and logins for websites (like email, SaaS platforms, etc), but it can also be used to store secure information (in text format), too. It's amazing for sharing logins across an organization or group, and can easily segment personal and business login information. If you have multiple logins for business/personal (Gmail, for instance), you must be mindful about selecting the correct account when logging in/out.

LastPass is used personally/individually in our organization. It is a simple password and secure notes storage service that syncs across multiple users. We encourage our organization to use it because it helps enforce password security across our service and encourages generally better security practices across the board. Many of our services also enforce higher-than-average security standards, including long and complex passwords, and LastPass helps our users follow those standards.
  • LastPass has great extensions for most devices that sync up really simply. It's really simple to plug in passwords on iOS, macOS.
  • Good security support. LastPass comes with a lot of 2FA authentication support on their free plans, and Yubikey support on the more premium plans.
  • Security Challenge - This is an awesome feature that lets you audit the security of all of your passwords based on age, length/complexity, and compromised account emails. It's really useful to keep your accounts secure across the board.
  • Can be expensive - To be able to sync across more than just two devices and other security features, you need LastPass premium, which adds up quite a bit since it is billed annually.
  • Safari integration is poorly designed. Unlike Chrome, the LastPass extension for Safari requires a physical program to be opened up in macOS, which sometimes gets in the way of productivity. It doesn't make much sense since LastPass's Safari extension used to be part of the browser just like Chrome.
  • It's difficult to restore access to a LastPass account if it's last security method is lost (such as a recovery phone number) - I've heard that the process for account recovery can be quite difficult/long.
For simple and secure password storage in a central database, it's easy to do this on the free LastPass plans. If you need passwords to sync up across multiple devices and have more security options in-place, it is worth looking at alternatives, because they have similar options that are a bit more affordable than LastPass premium.

We have used LastPass to greatly simplify our password management across the board. Every employee with a workstation has it. We use dozens of logins on a daily basis, and were always forgetting passwords, passwords would expire, or otherwise require weird quirky things like special characters, when others did not. I don't know how we survived before a password manager like LastPass, but we'll never go back.
  • Password management
  • Collaboration
  • Centralized passwords
  • Password recovery
  • Deleting account
  • Support is TERRIBLE
  • Knowledge base is non-existent
  • Security answers and 2FA are confused with passwords
Great for small businesses and teams managing a few to hundreds of passwords. It has saved us TONS of hours in hunting down old passwords. LastPass never forgets.

We use LastPass for two reasons: we can make more secure passwords for services and we can limit access to who has what passwords. Because we are a startup that is still small in size, we use it through the whole organization. In some cases, it's only passwords for some departments (so not everyone has access to everything) but there are some passwords that are for the whole organization.
  • Lets you save and manage your "vault" with passwords.
  • The "launch" feature, which completes forms automatically, works very well.
  • Lets you complete on mobile by using it for fingerprint (very useful).
  • Shared passwords work extremely good and are easy to use.
  • Random password generation is easy to use.
  • On Chrome it will trash any design by inserting their logo on every form. Sometimes it makes it hard to work because of that.
  • Form completion works but still needs some help with more complex ones.
  • When trying to save some passwords automatically (with Chrome extension) it is very persistent and sometimes fails to recognize that what you are trying to save is not a password.
I can't think of any scenario where this might not be useful. Work: if you work in marketing, IT or any other department with a shared service where you need to access and can't make several passwords to access, then you need this. First, to avoid others in the organization accessing, then because you need to have strong passwords so others won't have access. Family/Personal: I have a common LastPass account with my wife so we can share bank, computer, and any other service where we want to share our passwords. I use it myself as well to save passwords from any accounts where I work. Mainly you are looking for cross-department (or cross-family) and cross-device password saving.

I use LastPass personally to manage my passwords across my devices, for various sites and web applications. Before using LastPass, I had a difficult time remembering and keeping safe all my passwords. In addition, not all my passwords were secure, and often times were re-used across different sites, which meant if my credentials were compromised on one site, many other sites were at risk. After switching to LastPass, secure password management has become very easy.
  • Very user-friendly, intuitive interface (specifically iOS app and Chrome extension)
  • Used across various devices (Macbook, iPad, iPhone) seamlessly
  • Great security and features like 2-factor authentication, testing password strength, generate a random strong password
  • Great user sharing capabilities
  • To get more than basic features (i.e. more than a few devices), you have to pay for the premium service
  • Sometimes forms are pre-populated even when you don't want them to be (i.e. on less secure websites)
  • Chrome is great, but the Safari plugin isn't as good
LastPass is great for companies that need to share and manage passwords across users, which is basically almost any company. It allows you to create groups that can be shared and makes managing on/off-boarding employees a lot easier. The nice thing about LastPass is you can manage your personal passwords with your work-related passwords, and easily "un-link" them if/when you eventually leave your company.

At my organization, we use LastPass to share login information for some internal tools. I also use it personally for lots of other online tools/apps/sites/etc.
We prefer not to share some passwords through chat or email, and also we don't want to use weak passwords, so with LastPass, we just generate a new password when we need it and it is automatically updated for all the users who already got the info shared.
  • The chrome extension works well on being easy to access and find login info that was already saved.
  • The sharing feature works great, allowing you to share one key you created with another user, but not allowing the other part to read or change it! They can only use it to log in.
  • The iPhone app, which is integrated within the os keyboard, also works pretty well.
  • The mobile iOS app, although it works very well, does not have a good way of identifying passwords for apps, because it always tries first to find a "site" with the name you are trying to add.
  • The Chrome extension has some issues differentiating subdomains. I have different logins for XXXX.domain.com and YYYY.domain.com, but it always suggests both login info on both sites. It can improve the management of subdomains.
I think everybody should use a password manager. LastPass is great even on the free tier, allowing you to keep your passwords across multiple devices and share passwords with other users. Even though it is a single point of failure, I think it is better than repeating passwords across different applications or using some kind of rules (which don't work so easily because some apps force you, for example, to use one special character, while others don't allow it).
I don't suggest it for very important passwords which, in my opinion, I would only keep unwritten, or on a paper in a secure place.

LastPass is being used by all users across our organization. We use LastPass for really all its features starting with Saving usernames and passwords to sharing logins with other users. We really leverage the secure password generation feature so our users have strong passwords for accounts they make on other sites. LastPass's sharing feature is very nice to help users have access to team accounts and notes.
  • Username and password saving and auto-filling.
  • Chrome extension works super well.
  • Admin portal is very user-friendly.
  • Autoprovision of users through the SAML tools could be improved.
  • Reporting features aren't as intuitive as I'd like.
LastPass is well suited for any organization no matter the size (in my opinion). It has so many great features that make your employee's lives easier and more secure since LastPass can make secure passwords for you and remember them too! LastPass makes it super easy to save all your logins and even notes then use them very quickly through the extension search bar.

LastPass is used in our network as a credential manager in lieu of an Excel spreadsheet. They have freeware or you can pay for an enterprise or business account.
  • LastPass is an excellent credential manager and is keeping up with the times.
  • It integrates very well with the Chrome browser as an add-on. I have only had one issue with it, but I am not convinced it isn’t an actual issue with the GUI of the application and not LastPass.
  • Allows you to integrate your business account with your personal account without having to log in and out to view each one.
  • I have noticed very few times that LastPass will try to store a username\password for an application or WWW that has already been saved and cached in the system. This can be frustrating.
  • If the above happens, you will have many log-ins for the same application which can be frustrating for someone with OCD.
I use it daily for work and personal. It has an iOS app and I have found very few issues with the product, both freeware and paid enterprise version. I am not convinced the problems I had were actually with the product. I did not take the time to find the root cause. We actually moved to this and away from KeePass.

I use LastPass daily for management of company administrator passwords. We have a few in the department that use it as well, as well as some people in other departments.
  • Keeps up with emerging security and technology.
  • It is easy to use and very adaptable.
  • Management of other users is simple and effective.
  • Multiple accounts are a bit cumbersome to connect.
LastPass is more secure than keeping passwords on paper or in unencrypted files.

I utilize LastPass both professionally for my company and personally for myself. For the company, we utilize LastPass for the entire organization, giving users access to our critical business systems as well as a wide variety of websites & web applications that we use for business purposes. Many legacy vendors and product suppliers don't have multi-level user management and as a result, we have one set of credentials that multiple people in our organization have to use for different purposes. With LastPass, we've largely eliminated the problem of people changing passwords (locking other folks out of systems) as well as having to remember who is the one who originally set up the credentials and make sure they communicate them. Everyone knows passwords shouldn't be written down on sticky notes and shared around, but unfortunately, in business environments, this is often what happens. LastPass has helped us clean this up and provided a much greater level of security and password management.
  • Password maintenance.
  • Sharing access while maintaining password confidentiality.
  • Connecting personal account to business account so I don't have to keep logging in and logging out of accounts depending on what I have to log into.
  • The Chrome plugin is super helpful!
  • Integration with IOS apps is clunky and doesn't always work. Depending on the app, I have to open the LastPass app, copy a password and then open the IOS app and paste it in.
  • The LastPass Authenticator is just downright annoying.
  • Troubleshooting user issues in the LastPass Teams version (a step down from the Enterprise version in terms of functionality) can be a little tedious, but for us, that's an acceptable tradeoff for the cost.
My experience is using it personally and in a small business context and I am very pleased with it. I do not use the enterprise functionality, so I can't speak to a large company instance.

LastPass has allowed me as a business owner to allow my employees to log into business related websites without them having to know the passwords I have set up. I share the website credentials via their LastPass account and it allows them to sign in using the service. It also helps keep me more secure as I don't have to reuse the same (memorable i.e. that's easy to hack) passwords across sites.
  • Keep login credentials available to me no matter what computer I am accessing.
  • Maintains a secure portal that I can access but with 2-factor security I can rest assure that no one can view my passwords unless I give them access.
  • Keeps notes that I can access using my phone or a PC. This allows me to keep software registration information and license keys secure but easily retrievable when I need them.
  • Sometimes the auto-fill becomes problematic. When I open a form on a website I may want the login form to auto-fill one form but not other forms used elsewhere on the site. It then fills in fields that I may not realize with storied information
  • Possibly a more robust note-taking section that allows for a template for similar notes. Like the credit card storing tool but where we could create a custom template designed for the notes we want to take.
Allowing others access to sites you need them to log into without sharing the actual password (like employees/staff). Keeping your passwords safe and easily accessible via your phone, tablet, or computer makes using Lastpass very simple and intuitive. You don't want to use the same password over and over, and you definitely would prefer non-dictionary style words as your password (along with longer passwords) and LastPass allows for all of that.

LastPass provides secure centralized storage of login information (usernames and passwords), payment information, form-fill details, and generally any confidential text data can be saved into it. This can then be accessed via each device you own, auto-filled into login and other forms, and shared with others securely. It gives a secure way to store and share this type of information, and also can improve efficiency by auto-filling it for you.
  • Security
  • User Interface
  • Multi-platform support
  • Large Scale Storage - the applications get very slow as you store more data
  • Support - has often been slow and not always very helpful
  • Addressing issues quickly - both via development and support
  • Iterating and Innovating - developing new features
For smaller scale use - personal and small teams with not much data, it can be a very good solution. As you scale up the team using it, and the data involved, be prepared for some performance issues. Also be prepared to research workarounds as they have had bugs come up that do not get resolved quickly. For personal use, I have enjoyed the free plan with almost no issues, but I would probably recommend other options for business use.

LastPass is being used in our organization by our IT Department. Also, we recommend it to our users for personal use during our annual IT security training. We use it in our department to store passwords for our different services and servers that have admin accounts that we need to log into and manage. It helps solve the problem of having to make simple passwords or use the same easy to remember one over and over again.
  • Stores passwords very well in their "vault."
  • Creates very complex passwords for you with some customization options like length, special characters, alphanumeric, etc.
  • Autofills forms very well and are very intuitive.
  • Sharing passwords across user profiles is incredibly convenient.
  • The mobile version sometimes doesn't work. It works most of the time, but I found it's not as dependable as the browser plugin.
  • The most recent update I don't like. The look and feel just doesn't feel right, in my opinion.
  • I also feel like they don't update enough. I change my master password regularly. I feel like they should FORCE you more often to do so.
There are other options out there that are more complicated to use. If you want your family members to use a security feature like this, then LastPass is the one to recommend. If you have friends who aren't very tech-savvy, this is as straightforward as it gets. Works well and is very easy to get used to. A professional scenario is the one we use it for. You can share passwords, and only the ones you want to share, across users. Say an employee leaves-- it's very easy to have LastPass create a very long, complicated new one for you, that you can then reshare.

LastPass has helped solve a massive issue we had with the re-use of passwords and simple iterations of the same password constantly cropping up. It's being currently used by just key personnel (IT, Finance, HR) and recommended to all users for personal use to hopefully mitigate the risk of password reuse for personal and business accounts.
  • Automatically recommending new passwords and allowing you to tweak that recommendation for whatever the server decides it wants to ensure that it's permissible is amazingly simple.
  • The cross-platform app plugins make it seamless to work on a PC, Android or iPhone device.
  • The web application is great to show current vulnerable saved passwords and recommendations to improve your security through a simple wizard.
  • Automated password changes are a great feature too.
  • The generated passwords are total gibberish text (i.e. a mixture of letters, numbers, characters, etc.) which when managed by LastPass are fantastic. There are competitors that allow you to create long and technical passwords that are more readable for a human (strings of text with characters, etc.) that reportedly is better to do than random text.
  • If you lock yourself out of your account, which one director did and had deleted the extension on his PC. It totally locked him out of his password vault and it was lost.
  • There are different versions available, paid and free and its a little hard to fully appreciate what you are missing/gaining because the website doesn't totally make it clear.
I can't imagine a scenario where this isn't appropriate. Its been great at getting users with multiple accounts scattered around lots of websites, to resolve their constant reuse of passwords and improve security. We still need to review if there is a teams option as the next issue to resolve is our shared accounts (where a team of users accesses the same site) and how LastPass manages that. We'd ideally want to share a few items between specific people and allow them to have their other passwords personally stored but I'm not sure this does that.

LastPass is currently being used across almost our entire organization. Throughout our company, we have hundreds of systems and tools that are used by many employees. LastPass allows everyone to keep their login information secure and organized. This has significantly reduced the stress on our IT department by allowing them to focus on more pressing IT matters instead of resetting users passwords on a daily basis.
  • LastPass provides complicated and secure passwords in just a few clicks.
  • LastPass remembers your user ID as well as your password. This speeds up login time and relieves stress on our IT support staff.
  • LastPass also lets you manage your stored passwords and login information. If you need to know the password for a specific site, you can quickly pull that info.
  • One minor complaint is that the LastPass icon that shows in the login field can be distracting. It is not always formatted correctly for every field and can cover up important information from time to time.
  • We really have not had any issues with LastPass' functionality. It is a straightforward tool that does exactly what it promises.
LastPass is a great tool for anyone or any company that requires users to manage multiple logins across sites and tools. Not only does LastPass store login information securely, but it can also generate strong and secure passwords in a few clicks. This has greatly reduced IT support tickets for us.

LastPass is being used across our entire organization. Our IT Admin set it up & rolled it out to our team and it's been a lifesaver in terms of remembering passwords, transferring passwords when an employee leaves the company & it's vital from a security standpoint (no more post-it notes with passwords or less secure online options for saving passwords).
  • Organization into folders
  • Combining work & personal passwords in one tool
  • Sharing passwords with team members
  • Auto-sign in
  • Password Ownership
LastPass business version is great for teams of any size that need to share passwords & works best when the entire team adopts the tool as their source of truth for login information. The free version is also great for families who want to share passwords & have one source of truth for all login information. It's less appropriate for teams or families who do not intend to fully adopt it (ie, add some passwords to LastPass and storing others elsewhere).
