LastPass?
« on: October 24, 2016, 02:21:30 PM »
Does anyone else use LastPass?

I recently setup all my accounts using LastPass within the last couple months. I have to say it has been great not trying to remember all the individual passwords, and it is so much more secure. Unfortunately, the wife and I had a handful of shared passwords that we used for most of our accounts before, so I'm glad we were able to ditch that.

We use KeePass, and I have the encrypted password file synced across computers using owncloud. And I can access it via the KyPass 3 app on my phone through owncloud's webdev interface. Convoluted? Maybe. :p

That was the issue I had before, too many access points: my laptop, my wife's laptop, my work computer, my wife's work computer, my phone, my wife's phone. Was it password 1? Was it password 2? Wait, this website requires such and such, so it must be the one-time only password 3.

With Lastpass, I have the toolbar downloaded in google chrome so it remembers all of the passwords for me, and all I have to do is paste the password. It requires a bit more work on the iPhone, but most stuff stays logged in on my phone, and the master password on my wife seems sufficient.

I should look into something better. For some frequently accessed things we still use a "common" password.

Wife: What was the password for that site again?
Me: The usual.

That's exactly what we were doing.

One neat feature about Last Pass is that it has a security challenge that will analyze all the passwords you are using to make sure they are secure. That helped me find a few duplicate passwords I had forgot about.

I use Dashlane. Similar to Lastpass I think. I signed up when there was a deal for a 5 year subscription for 99$. It has been incredibly helpful, but my wife hates it.

Another vote for LastPass 👍.

It better be secure, since a lot of Financier's passwords are stored in there.  ;)

I also recommend using Correct Horse Battery Staple to generate a very secure, easy-to-remember password for your Master Password in LastPass. It's basically DiceWare.

I've been a lastpass premium user for years, it just makes it so easy across all your devices to have very strong passwords. The lastpass multi-factor authenticator is great too, install on your mobile and it just displays a message a approve / deny button instead of having to type MFA codes into the website.

Well I use LP on my 3 home computers, my work computer, my mobile phone (this comes with the premium only from memory). I really like the mobile app, It will fill your passwords into other mobile apps not just web pages, so you can use strong passwords for your mobile apps that require authentication as well.


The multi-factor authentication can be enabled in the settings and you can download the Lastpass MFA application to your mobile, or use one of the other supported ones like Google authenticator to add an additional level of protection.

I also have the premium service, but I don't think I have it configured properly on my mobile phone though. As I always have to open the LastPass app, copy password, and then past it into the apps or website I'm trying to use.

Ahh.. It looks like only certain apps on the iPhone allow for that:

I've used LastPass for years as a Premium user. Wouldn't operate without it.
