LastPass One Million User Giveaway: An Apple iPad and Two $100 Amazon Gift Cards

Want to enter? "LIKE" our Facebook page:


You can also retweet our #LoveLastPass hashtag, or send us a postcard using registered mail.

The giveaway starts now and ends at 5:00pm EST, Monday, February 28th, 2011. For more information, see our Giveaway Terms and Conditions.

To the one million LastPass-ers and counting: We "LIKE" you, too!

The LastPass Team


UPDATE

We've now received the iPad 2 we'll be giving away to the winner of our LastPass 1 million user giveaway, an upgrade from the iPad!

The reason this hasn't be delivered yet is that LastPass users were able to submit an entry to the giveaway by liking us on Facebook, sending us a post card or tweeting some LastPass love. All 3 winners fell under Facebook's random range, but unfortunately, we ran into a bug in Facebook that has prevented us from identifying the giveaway winners chosen at random from the total pool of submissions.

We filed a bug report with Facebook in February and have been attempting to convince them to resolve it for over a month. Sadly, this Facebook bug still hasn't been fixed. Perhaps if more people submit that they can't go past page 100 on fan listing pages at this bug report page:

http://www.facebook.com/help/contact.php?show_form=pages_bug

we might convince Facebook to fix it sooner. We didn't see this before the contest started because we had less than 10,000 fans at that time.

We're very sorry that this delay has occurred, and we have tried our best to avoid disappointing our users. We hope that with your continued support, we can more quickly win over Facebook and send our lucky winners their treats!

The LastPass Team

  3. If we already "liked" lastpass before the contest started, are we considered to be signed up? Do we need to unlike and then relike?

    ReplyDelete
  4. LIKE lastpass but hate facebook...

    ReplyDelete
  5. @Anonymous - if you already "Like" LastPass, you're in, no need to re-like!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Is there a way to enter for those of us who choose not to have a Facebook account?

    Due to the various security issues that Facebook represents, I feel that you should have an alternative way to be added to the contest.

    ReplyDelete
  7. My Fingers are crossed..........

    ReplyDelete
  8. I agree with Edward P that there shold be an alternative way of entering. I, too, do not Facebook.

    ReplyDelete
  9. @Edward P
    May be they will add twitter (not better on a security point of view though)

  10. Cool! None of the Terms & Conditions say that winners need to be US residents! If I win, can I collect my iPad the next time I'm in the US?

    ReplyDelete
  11. This is a wonderful gift to give away!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Those who use LastPass at work can't access facebook from the work network can't participate. There must be some other way to enter.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Well, really useful service with my huge amount of passwords

    ReplyDelete

  15. Love LastPass, but don't Facebook. Disappointed you shut out all non-Facebook users.

    ReplyDelete
  16. LastPass is the best! I ♥ it! I have been using it for a few years now...wish I could remember how long, LOL! Hmmm

    ReplyDelete
  17. Well being a Canadian I can't enter anyway, but I would also be shut out because of the Facebook thing. For a service (that I pay for - I'm a premium user) I use for privacy/security issues, I find it very strange to require the use of one of the worst privacy infringers for their contest.

    But companies do this all the time (I'm looking at you, Boingo!) and I'm sure they do it without even thinking. At least Boingo tells me to email them and they'll give me their giveaway too every time I jokingly get mad at them for all their Facebook-ism.

  18. Thanks to LastPass I'm able to access my secured web pages from any location in the world :))

  19. This giveaway got me off the fence about which password manager I want. Thanks for the shove LastPass!

  20. I only trust Lastpass for my passwords! I don't any of my passwords!

    ReplyDelete

  22. Is there someone else who must drilled e-mail from spam filters twice :-)
    First at ISP and at "home" filter as second...
    So much for Facebook crap... Good luck :-)

    ReplyDelete
  23. LastPass is the greatest! Easy to use and always available. Even at work where "cloud" storage sites like Dropbox are blocked, I can still get to LastPass.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Lets get this thing WON!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Love Last Pass! Love IPAD and love this contest!

  26. To: The LastPass Team,

    Is there any way to enter the contest other than Facebook? Do you plan to add another way to enter?

    Please give a "LastPass Team" response.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Is this giveaway available worldwide? I'm from Indonesia

    ReplyDelete
  28. A great way to not have to remember all my passwords. I must have about 25 of them. Thank you LastaPass, and thank you for the great giveaway opportunity.

  30. We've listened to your comments and concerns, and have added the following conditions to the giveaway:

    If you cannot participate via Facebook, you can retweet the #LoveLastPass hashtag from your Twitter account.

    If you cannot use either service, you can send us a postcard at:

    LastPass Corporate Headquarters
    226 Maple Ave W Suite 301
    Vienna, VA 22180, USA

    We will track participants via all three entry methods.

    For those outside the US - yes, you can still win, as long as we can ship the prize to you.

    Thank you for the feedback and support!

  31. @Amber, Thanks for being quick to respond to your communities concerns. Companies like this will definitely get the nod where I spend my dollar in moving towards your premium service.

    Is it possible for you to update the main header up top? Unless you read all the way down in the comments, it appears that you still have to 'like' the page on Facebook.

    Maybe it should include the alternate methods of entering

    Again, a sincere thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Love LastPass!

    Интересно, а из миллиона сколько русских пользователей?:)

  33. @Sarah

    I complained to B&N about their giveaway of a new Nookcolor that only available to Facebook users, and they just ignored my message (not reply at all). Very bad.

    At least Boingo replied to you and give you a chance, better than B&N.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Great experience with your product so far. Saved me tons on time over the year.

    Thanks for hearing and responding to our needs.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I was excited about entering until I saw you have to have an active Facebook account to be contacted upon winning. Love LASTPASS hate FACEBOOK.

    ReplyDelete
  49. LastPass is absolutely the best password manager I have ever used.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  51. LassPass great password manager, cool software to use, and a smart people who developed. LastPass.... I Like :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. I love LastPass, now with a giveaway like this I love it even more... if that is possible :)

    I'm not sure whether I get this entirely. Is it enough to Like the LastPAss Facebook page, and that's it?

    No need to post a proof, my Facebook profile URL or anything else?

    Thank You.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I'ts very very cool app ever!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Thanks for the opportunity!

    Like!

    ReplyDelete
  55. @Edward P: The thing is, companies use Facebook as a less expensive form of advertising. The contest prizes are practically paid for by that ROI.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Lastpass is really an excellent password manager! Many time I find better than roboform or other password managers. Thanks Lastpass! I wish though pro version available for free to all! Wish you best for million users and keep growing. You are doing phenomenal!

  62. Could use this as I am old and can't remember

    ReplyDelete
  63. What if our twitter and facebook accounts do not use the same email as our lastpass account. Is that an issue with the sweepstakes?

    ReplyDelete
  64. Outstanding tool. It encourages use of more secure and robust passwords by allowing you not to have to remember them, and as we all know, we tend to re-use passwords because we can only commit so much to memory.

    ReplyDelete
  65. There are a few billion people out there that aren't yet using lastpass what a pity

    ReplyDelete
  66. Is there a winner?

    ReplyDelete
  67. @Anonymous -- There are 3! We're in the process of confirming. The random gods favored Facebook, all 3 landed in their number range.

    ReplyDelete
  68. So who are the winners????

    ReplyDelete
  69. Are you still in the process of confirming ?

    ReplyDelete
  70. Well, I guess they're not announcing anything publicly because they're afraid of people massively "unliking" their Facebook page once the contest is officially over... but maybe I'm wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  71. hey Joe, any news? announcement? do the winners already know they won?

    i'm afraid the anonymous commenter is right, "I guess they're not announcing anything publicly because they're afraid of people massively "unliking" their Facebook page once the contest is officially over..."

    ReplyDelete
  72. Did last pass every give away the iPad ?

    ReplyDelete
  73. Do you have any human beings at your company that I could talk to about a question that I DON'T see on your Help Center pages?

    You have obviously gone out of your way not to receive phone calls.
