Overall Satisfaction with LastPass for Business

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.
  • Less admin time required when an employee leaves, as passwords can be rotated and updated directly in LastPass
  • Developers use better passwords (hopefully autogenerated) instead of the same one over and over again
  • Developers can work faster without having to search for and be granted access to passwords to different systems when they are shared.
I have used LastPass for the last 8 years and have no complaints. Currently, my company uses Dashlane, but I haven't gotten enough experience with it yet to review it. I love the ability to share passwords and secure notes with my coworkers, and then I can disable access whenever something changes, or someone leaves. I spend most of my time outside an IDE in Chrome, and the plugin has never let me down.
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.
