Overall Satisfaction with LastPass

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
  • Increased security by generating stronger passwords.
  • Save time by not streamlining how passwords and access are given to old/new employees.
  • Save time by making it very fast to log into sites, and not have to worry about tracking down and remembering passwords.
I've used Okta at work and it has been pretty easy to use, although I was not responsible for managing it. LastPass has definitely served its purpose in easily securing my passwords across all my devices, and is very easy to manage. More colleagues of mine use LastPass over its competitors, so along with my own positive experiences, I would recommend it over the alternatives.
Whether you have one or many users or are managing one or many passwords, LastPass works just as good. It is effective for both small and large organizations. The main thing to consider is that for enterprise/large-scale use, you will need to pay for premium service, but in my experience, it is well worth it.
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.
