Rubenking covers a number of updates, large and small, to the product since he last reviewed it. He notes that, “LastPass 2.0 manages your passwords thoroughly and flexibly, with features that go way, way beyond the competition. Yes, it stores your encrypted data in the cloud, but it’s a very, very secure cloud.”
Rubenking cites several highlights, including:
- Thorough and flexible password management,
- Effective form filling,
- Captures Wi-Fi passwords,
- Secure notes now have templates, attachments,
- Checks for weak passwords, generates strong ones,
- Multifactor authentication, and
- Free credit monitoring.
We think his overall assessment says it best:
“Make no mistake, when it comes to smooth and flexible password management and a wealth of features far beyond the competition, LastPass still rules and it’s our Editors’ Choice for free password managers.”
With 2.0 we’ve expanded the types of sensitive information you can store and manage in your LastPass account, and increased the ways that LastPass can play a more proactive role in protecting a user’s identity. We’re proud to again receive PCMag’s Editors’ Choice with five stars for our latest update, and we’ll continue to work hard to provide a quality product, with valuable features, for free.
