moderated What about Last Pass?


Gene Warner
 

For the longest time, since about 2003, I have used RoboForm and liked it. But starting with version 7 it started becoming inaccessible, and version 6, the last fully accessible version, is quite old and has no support for Edge or Chrome, so now I am looking looking for something to replace it.

The last time I looked at what was available Last Pass seemed to be the best option for what I wanted.

So I am asking for any comments from people who have used it.

Thanks!

I've had some success with nordpass as well, it is quite accessible,
but, having said that, I am not that satisfied, so maybe I will try
Keypass as well. Nordpass uses a web interface. It is free.
Unfortunately I never tried the ios part.

feel good about the crazy password I have for that database file and have
gotten over my general nervousness. I hope I'm not being naïve about
something.

What happens if you put something like your Apple ID in a password
manager? I was thinking of using something like BitWarden or similar but
was wondering if you'd have to leave some passwords out of a vault because
it might be hard to scrape a password from a vault during install.

Let me add a question about Last Pass.
Does it store its info in a file on my pc, or in the cloud?
Frankly, I don't trust cloud storage so I rather have the former as I did
in the Old RoboForm which I had used for years until they got to version
7.


Gene Warner
 

That's a very good question because I am like you in that I do not trust cloud storage as much as I trust local storage. Thanks for bringing that up!

I am currently using the password manager that is built into Edge (it might actually be part of the Chromium engine Edge uses), it works but JAWS' support for it is often iffy at best.

I think it is stored in the cloud, but they encrypt all your data with a master password that you set when you set it up, so they can't read the passwords you store there without it.

I would say the cloud since you can access your information from multiple devices.

It is kind of a hybrid so to speak. The actual database is a physical file that is fully encrypted, but you would store the file in iCloud, One Drive, Drop Box et cetera so that you can access it across multiple devices and platforms.

This is not true, no physical file for you to store, just use the app
or the browser. I must say they had a breech, but acted very
responsibly about it, so its worth getting. One thing, if you want
to use lastpass on more than one kind of device, such as your computer
and phone, its not free anymore.

Hi there, How accessible is LastPass on Windows? Has anyone tried using it across different operating systems in conjuction with windows?
Thanks Ron.

I apologize, I miss spoke. I like the physical file as you can often merge from a backup. I have mistakenly deleted an entry, and was able to restore from a backup. With cloud only you might have to pay for that option.

I have now used Keypass for several years and I can absolutely assure you that it does have the physical database on your computer and is not in the cloud unless you choose to place it or a copy in the Drop Box or One Drive, etc. This gives you total control of where your data is stored.
