LastPass is a password safe that simplifies password management and storage. A 2017 Consumer Reports article on password managers listed LastPass as one of four recommended by a panel of security experts. In addition to passwords, users may also store secure notes, all of which are encrypted using industry standard AES-256 encryption. Encryption is performed on the user's device before any data is sent to LastPass's servers. LastPass includes a web interface, plugins for all the popular browsers, smartphone apps, and even bookmarklets. Two-factor authentication can be configured using a LastPass Authenticator phone app, UbiKeys, or other methods. Somewhat unique among password managers, LastPass allows users to set a password hint, which allows access to their passwords even if their master password is forgotten. In addition to the free service tier, premium and enterprise tiers are available that provide additional features like priority tech support or sharing of passwords among groups of users. When your premium trial ends, you'll still have access to LastPass free features. Users can upgrade to premium at any time for $2 per month.
