Overview

LogMeIn, Inc. is a US software company headquartered in Boston and an experienced specialist in remote maintenance services. The company employs more than 2,800 people and took over the provider of the well-known password manager LastPass at the end of 2005. More than 13 million people and 33,000 businesses already entrust the software with their passwords.

LastPass is a web-based password manager that has been on the market since 2008. The popular software works on all platforms using coding in the C++ programming language. The program creates strong passwords that optimally protect you against hackers and stores digital notes in an encrypted database. LastPass automatically fills in online forms and makes it possible to securely share sensitive data.

The LastPass support team can only be reached via a contact form on the official website. Paying customers are prioritized and receive an answer in just one hour on average.

Password generator

The encrypted database of LastPass can only be accessed with a master password. This password must be created directly after starting the software. Unlike other password managers, users can also set a Reminder in the event that they forget the master password. You can then use LastPass with all its functions. Users can create strong passwords in just a few clicks with the password generator. The length of the passwords can be set (from 4 to a maximum of 100 characters) and it can be configured whether the generated passwords should be pronounceable, which character types are to be used (lowercase and uppercase letters, special characters, and numbers), and whether the generator should avoid ambiguous characters.

In addition to creating passwords, LastPass takes a lot of the users’ work of their hands – if they want. There are free add-ons available for most browsers, with which the software takes over the laborious manual completion of online forms. Users can just sit back and let LastPass do the work. If a website for which LastPass has stored data is accessed, the software automatically fills in all fields. With the form wizard, users no longer have to remember or laboriously fill out any personal data. This makes online shopping much easier and safer.

The handy Security test function can be found in the LastPass menu. The software checks the strength of all passwords and then displays detailed statistics. Users can immediately see how secure their passwords are and when they last changed them. All weak existing passwords can be replaced by secure passwords using the Password generator. This only takes a short amount of time and makes using the computer and browsing online more secure.

Saving passwords

LastPass creates secure passwords and stores them in its database. Additionally, users can store other data – such as information about payment methods – in the data vault. It is protected by AES 256-bit encryption, PBKDF2 SHA-256, and salted hashes. The vault cannot be opened by a hacker without the master password. Users can easily access the vault via the main menu. Passwords and other data are imported into its vault from all common browsers, other password managers, or directly from a CSV file. The stored data can also be exported.

The software already automatically searches for all stored passwords on your computer during the installation of LastPass. Thereafter, the program will ask you which passwords you want to transfer to the data vault. LastPass will then delete passwords that are in unsafe locations and import all data into its secure vault. No competitors offer a similar functionality, which is very convenient and saves users a lot of time. LastPass can additionally be adapted to the needs of users in just a few clicks, and stands out through its numerous import and export options.

The password manager has another useful feature that most similar programs don’t have. Users often have one or more favorite passwords that they use for various accounts. This may be convenient, but it is also very unsafe. LastPass addresses this issue by automatically finding and listing all duplicate passwords. Users can then easily exchange old passwords for new passwords and remove duplicates.

Special additional features

LastPass has numerous security measures and is one of the safest programs of its kind. User data are encrypted exclusively on the device level and are never sent to the LastPass servers. If users wish to increase security even further, they can use two-factor authentication. Access to LastPass is secured through 2-factor authentication (2FA) using the free smartphone app. Users create a code with the app that is only valid for a few moments and then use it to log into the software.

 

In LastPass’ Share center, users can safely share their passwords and notes with various trusted persons and also add special contacts for emergencies. This allows trusted persons to access the stored data in emergencies if users themselves are unable to do so.

User-friendliness & compatibility

LastPass is one of the oldest password managers around and is used by over 13 million customers. The software runs on many different platforms and, unlike most other security programs, also supports Linux operating systems and Windows XP. LastPass has largely been translated into other languages, but sometimes still contains a few English terms. Nonetheless, thanks to the user-friendly and clear interface, the software is easy to use and configured hassle-free.

The free extension is compatible with almost all browsers and runs on Firefox, Opera, Chrome, Edge, Safari, and Internet Explorer. Users can find a lot of important information about the security software and the family and company versions on the LastPass website. They can access a comprehensive user manual and interact with other users on the English-language forums.

Help & support

The support staff generally only speak English but have a reputation for responding very promptly. On average, it only takes 1 hour for them to answer to a support ticket. Customer support can only be reached on the website via the online form. LastPass has already won numerous awards in the many years that it has been on the market, and has seen frequent praise from the trade press. At the end of 2017, the renowned Stiftung Warentest rated the Password Manager as “recommendable”. In an extensive comparative test between several password programs, LastPass took first place. The trade journal “Chip” crowned LastPass as the winner at the beginning of 2018.

Summary

At an attractive price of less than 2 euro per month, users get one of the best password managers out there, which is used by millions across the globe. LastPass convinces with its impressive compatibility and works on most platforms. Installation and operation are designed in a user-friendly way and the range of functions is impressive. LastPass generates strong passwords, stores all important data, and independently fills in online forms. With 256-bit encryption, a master password, and optional 2FA, data can be neither be accessed by experienced hackers nor by the developers themselves. Apart from the incomplete translation of the software, LastPass gets great notes across the board and is ideal for private users, large families, and companies.
