I have been using LastPass Web browser Free Password manager for saving most of my online accounts for social networking, e-mail, forums, and blog login user name and password for a few months. I Tried LastPass on Mozilla FireFox, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer.
All of your passwords, user names, and information you saved with LastPass is encrypted on your computer which only YOU can unlock with your user name and password.
You also do not have to be afraid that your computer or web browser break making you lose all your user names and passwords since all your passwords, user names, links, etc you tell LastPass to save online are all stored securely online, and you can access them from any computer, or cell phone web browser which has LastPass installed on it.
All web browsers work great with LastPass. I no longer have to remember a huge list of passwords since LastPass save all my passwords for me, and encrypts my password locally on my computer.
I also set LastPass’s preferences to automatically log me off of LastPass when I close my web browsers, so if someone use my browser or computer they can’t access my passwords without my login e-mail and password which only I know.
Using a master e-mail and password to protect all your passwords, and user names is a lot more secure then the default password auto-login in Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox and other Web browsers. LastPass Auto-login also might protect you from keyloggers since you are not typing in your password for key loggers to steal.
If someone steals your computer, you can always delete your account by going to the LastPass account deletion page with another computer, so the thief can not hack your LastPass account if you set LastPass to remember your master login e-mail or password since your account was deleted by you already with another computer.
Also, there is almost no learning curve on learning how to use LastPass since once it is installed on your web browser, it will ask you if you want to save your passwords from your existing web browsers to LastPass.
LastPass will also ask you if you want to save new user name, passwords, and login page website addresses for your accounts when you login to an account which you have not saved yet, so whenever you click on your bookmarks, LastPass will go to the login website you bookmarked, and LastPass will automatically login to your account.
For example, if you clicked on your Twitter LastPass Bookmark, LastPass will make your Web browser to go to Twitter.com and log you into Twitter automatically.
If you rather not LastPass save your password and user name for a particular website account like your online banking website account, you can click the never button, so LastPass will never ask you to save your password and user name for a particular website.
LastPass works for Windows, Linux, Mac, and mobile phones and devices like WebOS, iPhone, Android, Windows Phone, Blackberry, and Symbian.
I have been using LastPass with both Windows and Ubuntu Linux for a few weeks which makes surfing online with different operating systems, web browsers and computers a lot more convenient for me since I can access my saved bookmarks for login pages, usernames, and passwords on all computers by just installing LastPass.
You can also manage, import, export and organized your passwords, usernames, links, autofills, and secure notes from https://lastpass.com/index.php?ac=1 by logging into your LastPass account.
LastPass also has an autofill features which make filling out forms which ask for your name, address, country, and other info.
LastPass also has a secure notes feature which password protect your notes related to software serial keys, banking, etc.
Once LastPass is installed all I need to do is log in with my master e-mail and password for my LastPass account to have access to all my user names, passwords, and account login links which I told LastPass to save for me.
