New LastPass website and LastPass version 1.62.0 released

As you’ve hopefully noticed,¬†LastPass has revamped its website, but this wasn’t just a cosmetic improvement. We’ve revamped our help section, our FAQs, and downloads page to make them more intuitive and easier to find information. It also gives us a chance to feature the awards and great comments we keep receiving.

LastPass version 1.62.0 has also been released. We’ve focused on improving Chrome and Safari support mostly, and making using a multi-factor device easier by allowing you to remember the computer you’re on to avoid being prompted for it going forward. This makes it easier to do things like require multi-factor on your laptop, but make things quicker and easier on your desktop. Remember, computer support works with LastPass Sesame, YubiKey and our newest feature: LastPass Grid.

LastPass Grid is a free multi-factor authentication solution available to any user — no hardware required, no premium LastPass membership required. LastPass Grid video

Using LastPass Grid is easy, print it off, fold it in half and put it in your wallet. Used with the “remember this computer feature”, you might only need to enter Grid coordinates a few times, but you can rest easy knowing that even if someone determined your LastPass master password, they’d still also need to have your Grid to get in. This is a big road block for anyone attempting to access your account, and really enhances the security of LastPass.

You may want to login to your mobile devices before enabling Grid (or any multi-factor) so you can take advantage of restricting mobile access too.

LastPass encourages everyone to take advantage of multi-factor authentication. With our new “remembered computer” support and now with LastPass Grid, we’re removing a lot of hassles out of using multi-factor.

    What’s up with lastpass today? I can’t login, the page just remains the same, it was working fine after the last update, now all of a sudden it isn’t. Then if i click on “sign into lastpass” again, it says “loading my sites” and then refreshes back to the login page & the form boxes are blank.

    What’s happened to Chrome Last Pass – Won’t autofill! having to copy username and copy password to paste in login info!!!!!!!!!!!!
    only since last interface change!!!!!!!!

  • The unique identifier is stored in an external file and is sent over an HTTPS connection, so they would likely need complete control over your PC.

    The Grid is a neat idea. One questions though: if I have “trusted” some computers and they no longer require two-factor authentication, how difficult is it for an attacker to lift the computer identity (a cookie?) from my trusted machine and use it on his own?

    Ok, my bad. I had some more sites saved with the same url and it made this mess. I deleted all sites but this proper one and it started working.

    Thx. I’m afraid that it didn’t help. I cleared all browser data and Lastpass menu appeared. I did what you wrote and for the first time it filled data but I logged out and next try failed. I think that lastpass is still not completely compatible with google chrome browser.
