Overall Satisfaction with LastPass

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 trusted player in the industry, and its ease of use helps us get the sticky note/flat text file password keepers on board with a more secure solution.
  • Seeing how easy password management can be helps bring a willingness to think more about security to our team.
  • It's ease of use can make users veer from other solutions the company may choose.
When we vetted LastPass, users just liked its interface more than Dashlane. The products have similar offerings, but LastPass just seems to do them simpler. KeePass is actually our vault of choice in the IT department, but it can't stack up to LastPass in ease of use, cloud sync, and mobile device integration.
We had a minimum deployment, but as a cloud solution, I don't foresee any issues with LastPass scaling.
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.
