Overall Satisfaction with LastPass

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.
  • LastPass gave us the ability to get rid of our Excel password spreadsheet and move to this century.
  • Allows you to give parent-child or special permissions. This was helpful to separate help desk and infrastructure passwords.
LastPass was tried side-by-side with KeePass and was chosen as the winner for the IT Team. We have used it at work, for personal use and even encouraged it for business execs.
I have not had an issue with this aspect thus far. You are able to carve out permissions to what group and can also carry a parent-child type buildout where one or a group can keep overall control and delegate as needed.
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.
