By September 29, 2010 Product Updates 26 Comments

We’ve just released a new version (1.70.0), and we’re excited to announce the addition of several new features:

Secure Note Templates

 
LastPass Secure Notes has been radically improved to help you store and easily organize all of your confidential information. Templates for Bank Accounts, Credit Cards, Passports, Software Licenses, and many more have been added. Check out our latest screencast to see it in action:

Form Fill Support for More Languages (Beta)
 
We’ve added the ability to use our Form Fill feature with Spanish, Japanese, French, German, Italian and Portuguese. It’s still in beta which means we’re continuing to make it more robust, but we hope it will enhance the browsing experience for our users.
 

Camino Browser Support on Mac (Beta)
 
Although still in beta, Mac enthusiasts who use the Camino Browser can now have access to their vault! You can install it via the Safari link on our download page.

Extension for Dolphin Browser HD on Android
 
This one’s a bit of old news already, but Premium LastPass-ers can now use the extension on the Dolphin Browser on their Droid!
 

Internet Explorer 9 Support
 
If you have already upgraded to the latest version of IE, or are planning to upgrade soon, LastPass now fully supports Microsoft’s latest browser version.
 

Firefox 4 Support on All Platforms
 
If you’re a technophile and love running the latest and greatest beta builds, you’ll be happy to hear that LastPass now fully supports Firefox 4.
 

Track Sharee Changes (Beta)
 
Using LastPass to share sites and secure notes with friends, family, and coworkers just got easier. If you’re a Premium user, you can now use our new beta Share feature to track, view, and accept changes made by sharees.
 

YubiKey Dvorak Keyboard Support
 
Use your YubiKey with LastPass Premium without having to switch back and forth between QWERTY and Dvorak keyboard layouts.
 
Generate Secure Password on iPad
 
In our efforts to continue improving our tabbed browser on the iPad, we’ve added the Generate Secure Password feature! The latest update is still pending approval by Apple, but we’re hoping it will appear in the iTunes store within the next week or so.
 

Other Fixes, Improvements, and Features
 
We add dozens of fixes, improvements, and minor features on a daily basis. If you’ve emailed us in the recent past about an issue, be sure to upgrade as it’s very likely we’ve fixed it! You can also view further changes in our release notes.

    Thanks for the comment. It’s meant as a good way to securely organize your data categorically. For the record, my family of 3 has 5 passport numbers, 5 SSN numbers, and 2 drivers license numbers. As for credit card numbers: what if you lose, misplace or have your wallet stolen? What if you are on vacation and someone steals your luggage?

    But your point is well taken. This is the first incarnation. In future we’ll try to add the ability to enter arbitrary name/value pairs.

    The new secure note templates sound like a great idea… but some of these templates really make me wonder what practical use they might have. E.g. what for do I need passport or drivers license? I have exactly one passport and one driver license, not plenty. I also have exactly one social security number. I could use it to put in the values of my family, but each of them has an own LP account. Software licenses, Server, Instant Messenger and E-mail are certainly useful templates. Regarding credit card and bank account, I’m not sure if I should really put this info into LP. After all wherever I go I carry my credit/debit cards with me, containing all that information of your template directly on the card.

    Love the product folks. As a software professional, though, I have to take a bit of offense at the demo video show you sharing a software license key!

    Lastpass is unusable with the latest update, 1.70.0 for Firefox on Windows. It constantly freezes Firefox (3.6.10) on my Windows XP 32bit and Windows 7 34bit machines and on my wife’s Windows XP 32bit machine. Freezes are even worse when Facebook is loaded, not to mention having different Facebook pages in several tabs, the plugin does the same.
