LastPass awarded PCMag.com's Editors Choice for Password Management

Neil J. Rubenking from PCMag.com just published a comprehensive review of LastPass giving it 5 out of 5 stars.  His article pits LastPass against all existing password management offerings and awards LastPass with its "Editors Choice for Password Management".

From the article:

LastPass's catchphrase is "The last password you'll ever need," and I think the app does a pretty good job of living up to that claim. It has just about every software feature offered by any other password manager, as well as some the others don't have. Its multiple mobility options ensure that you can use it anywhere. And it's free! I'm switching to LastPass, our new Editors' Choice for password management.

First Release Version of LastPass!

The LastPass staff is proud to announce our first official release today! It has been almost 1 year to the day since we began to work on this product and we have come a long way. But rather than look back, we have our sights on the future. We have a lot of exciting products in our pipeline, some of which are nearing completion.

We have also released our premium offering this week. Among the added benefits of signing up are guaranteed support, a native blackberry application, and no ads. The entire list of features can be found here. It is only a $1 a month, which we will put towards our hosting costs and will be used to build new features.

LastPass for BlackBerry BETA, and LastPass Premium

We are pleased to announce the beta release of LastPass for BlackBerry! LastPass for BlackBerry is an application that allows you to access and edit your LastPass data from a BlackBerry smartphone. It can also cache your data in an encrypted file that gets stored on your BlackBerry, so it's available when you have no network coverage as well.

To install, simply point your BlackBerry browser to https://lastpass.com/, and then select the large green "Get LastPass" icon. You can also browse directly to https://lastpass.com/LastPassBB.jad.

LastPass for BlackBerry is still in an early beta stage, and as such, we'd love to hear comments from our users on how we might be able to improve and extend it.

This application is the first in a new line of features we're calling LastPass Premium. You will be able to try LastPass for BlackBerry for free for 14 days, but you must become a LastPass Premium subscriber to continue using it after that.

Along with LastPass for BlackBerry, LastPass Premium also gives you an ad-free experience and priority phone and email support. It's available for only $1 per month! You can read more and subscribe to LastPass Premium at https://lastpass.com/premium.php.

We plan on augmenting our LastPass Premium feature set even more in the near future, with features including YubiKey support, an iPhone application, and Windows Application support. Stay posted for further details on these features.
