"The last password you'll have to remember"

Winner Best software in 2014 - Password Managers.

Overview

LastPass Password Manager is one of the most renowned password management software available. With this robust utility, your master password will be the last password you'll ever have to remember, and you'll no longer have to worry about filling out forms with the same old information.

Installation

As is the case with other password managers, LastPass installation process is fast and carefree. After choosing your language, a window appears reminding you that LastPass is trusted, secure, easy to use, and free of charge. In the next window you'll be prompted with a few check boxes that ask you whether you want to install a LastPass plug-in for Internet Explorer and Firefox. Next, you can choose to create a LastPass account, sign in to an existing one, or skip importing passwords and other data altogether. On the last step of the installation two check boxes appear, one asking you which action should be performed when you close your browser (stay logged into LastPass or automatically log out), and whether you'd like to set LastPass vault as your homepage. Once the installation has finished a convenient “yes or no” pop-up box will appear asking you if you'd like to view a video tutorial on how to use LastPass Password Manager.

Interface

The LastPass Password Manager user-interface consists of a combination of browser toolbars, taskbar options, and context menu (right click menu) options. The main component of the software is the LastPass control panel, which lets you adjust account settings, view notifications, and set general security settings such as automatic logoff preferences.
