LastPass 3.0: Saving and Filling Logins

evernotesignup

With LastPass 3.0, we’ve made some big improvements to how LastPass integrates with your browser experience. LastPass 3.0 is designed to be accessible, and simpler overall – offering what you need, where and when you need it.

Here are some tips on saving and filling your logins with LastPass 3.0:

Let’s say I’m signing up for a new Evernote account. I launch Evernote.com, and open the signup page.

On this form, LastPass has offered a “profile” icon. If I click this, I will see my form fill profiles. If I have an email address and username stored in a profile that I prefer, I can easily select that profile to fill in those details.

Or, I can manually enter an email address and username.

Now I can click the generate password icon, to generate a strong password. I click the “use password” button to enter it into the field.

Next I select “save password to vault”. The dialog expands to show me the data I’m about to save.

I can assign it to a group, then click “save site”. A moment later, a confirmation dialog will pop up on the top right of the browser.

I’m done! When I return to Evernote.com, the LastPass icon will have a “1”, meaning I have 1 entry stored for Evernote.com.

Now when I go to a site where I have an account, or multiple accounts, I’ll see the asterisk in the username and password fields.

Clicking the asterisk, I’ll see the list of my accounts, and I can easily select the one I need, then submit the login.

You can access all of the LastPass tools by selecting the red asterisk to expand the menu.

The “+” icon on the top left will let me expand the “save site” dialog.

If I go to a site, and the icons do not appear for any reason, I can click the LastPass icon, select the “show matching sites” menu, and select the login I need to autofill.

In this way, the new interface gives me quicker access to the tools I need, as I’m going about my daily online life.

If you’ve tried out LastPass 3.0 and still prefer the previous notification bars for the time being, please use our tool here: https://lastpass.com/change_ver.php to switch your settings back to “2.0 mode”.

    New Question. I noticed lately (within the past few days) there is a red “show/hide” password next to where i type in my passwords. Is this new or did i click something to bring up that option?

    How do I add Evernote to LastPass if the Evernote account already exists? (Alas, I didn’t find this article until after I’d set up my Evernote account.)

    LastPass: Free Password Manager 3.1.1; NPLastPass – Version: 2.5.5; Win8, Chrome (32.0.1700.107 (Official Build 248368) m); just downloaded LastPass within the last week from the LastPass site, plugin for Chrome from the Chrome Web Store . Still seeing the problem of not being able to select a login from the list of multiple logins for a site. As stated on https://helpdesk.lastpass.com/password-manager-basics/field-icons/ “Clicking the desired login will then autofill the username and password selected.” is NOT TRUE.

    Like many others, I am reverting back to 2.0. There are too many broken links in 3.0 and it is a nightmare to try and login to most sites. This should not have been released without some kind of beta testing by customer to ensure its usability.
