    Question LastPass

    Quote Originally Posted by Cristina View Post

It is a browser extension you can get to from any machine, and if you subscribe for about a dollar a month you can sync across a mobile version as well and have all your passwords on any device.

    The quote above, copied from another Bihn forum thread about clean-installing an operating system on my computer, seemed worth isolating and starting its own discussion thread.

    How many folks here have used LastPass, a kind of cloud-based personal repository for online passwords and the like? How many of you use another similar service?

    What do you think of the service, both in terms of what you get out of it and the quality and security of it?

    Thanks in advance!

    I think it's a great service! Myself, I use 1Password. It's very similar to LastPass. The only reason I went with 1Password over some of the other password managers out there is that our IT department was raving about it.

    I've been using it for a few years now and have not had to remember more than one, master password.

    Managers are so simple and user friendly that I don't think I can go back to not using one.

    I have used and still use both 1Password and Lastpass on a variety of platforms (Mac/IOS/Android/Windows/Chromebook) and they both work well. I started with 1Password long ago and prefer it (partially because it was my first I suspect) as I find it less intrusive than Lastpass (which shows up at every login automatically). I prefer to to make the decision to call up the manager as I need it - just my preference. BOth do what they are supposed to do and do it very well. Both are moving to a subscription service model (monthly or annually) though I think you can still use Lastpass for no cost.

    Another vote for 1password.
    I love it.
    My spouse uses it for both his work passwords and his personal passwords.
    It's worth the cost.

    Here's my arrangement:

    My iMac is currently running MacOS 10.10 "Yosemite". My plan to update it (clean install) to 10.12 "Sierra" is imminent. I also plan to install and run Windows 10 via Boot Camp so I have access to some Windows-only software.

    I have a nice Moto G4 Play smartphone, running Android 6 OS. I also use an iPad Mini running iOS 10.

    My parents are also involved; they have a MacBook Pro running MacOS 10.9, which I plan to update (clean-install) to Sierra. I want to use a setup that will cover all of these machines.

    I am by no means the computer expert in the house. My husband set me up to use Dashlane and I love it. I only need to remember one master password. We are also using Macs over here.

    Another vote for 1Password. I use it on both my MacBook Pro and my iPhone, and my wife uses it on her iPhone too. I have the Families plan which allows multiple users on one account with our own separate password vaults.

    I used KeePass (a free password manager, but the user interface was horrific) for many years before finally paying for 1Password. Haven't regretted it since and I've just renewed for another year.

    In the past I have used LastPass, Dashlane (all of last year), KeePass (a day of use), and 1Password (years ago and again currently). I prefer 1Password to the other three due to simplicity, security (my belief due to feel), and general responsiveness of the company.

    Having said that I like a lot of what Dashlane does (online receipts especially), but it got to be somewhat annoying and cumbersome as it would handle sites differently and seemed to try to do too much. 1Password, for me, sits in the background and does exactly what I want it to do. I do not like their push to go to a subscription model and the cloud, but will see how it goes. To date, both my wife and I are happy. She uses the MacOS version and I use the Windows version.

    Luckily all of these have a trial version you can try and see which one fits your personal use cases. Good luck!

    @MtnMan, @whitnorris has the best suggestion, they all have free trials.

    I use 1Password on my iPhone, iPad, MacBook Pro, iMac, and my Windows PC at work. I've had no problems. Like a few were saying already, I like that 1Password is not always in my face. It's a life-saver of an app but it stays out of the way until I need it.

    I moved to the subscription model and hopefully it works as well as it did before.

    Again, I second what @whitnorris says and go for the free trials

    LastPass

    Just by coincidence, this was posted tonight:
    How to switch from LastPass to 1password

    I may switch since I didn't realise until I read the article that LastPass had had multiple security breaches. I might not have read that article without this discussion, so thanks very much, @MtnMan!

    If I use LastPass or if I use 1Password, will it work with Windows 10 and with my Moto Android phone as well as with MacOS X?

    On my windows PC I use the Chrome extension and it works just fine. macOS not a problem. Android I don't have so I can't answer that from personal experience. However, the IT specialist I have access to at work (he praised 1Password) had an Android phone, a windows laptop for work, and a personal iPad. So I would assume it works with everything cross-platform.

    1Password works fine with Android. You don't get (yet) the nice browser integration you get with other platforms, though.

    Alright, either Sunday or some time this coming week, I would like to do my clean-install of MacOS Sierra on my iMac.

    One more question I need to ask about LastPass and 1Password:

    If I choose either of these services, what do I have to do? Do I download and activate something and then it just searches my computer for login information and instantly uploads all of it right then and there, or do I have to go through some long procedure to make sure it saves all of my login data? I need to know if my clean install will have to be delayed.

    Both LastPass and 1Password will save your passwords in the 'cloud' so you would not lose anything. Actually, LastPass operates in the cloud so you could move from system to system and be OK. 1Password has historically kept passwords secure on a person's system, but do allow cloud access.

    You should download the trial and just play around with both. Figure out which user interface you prefer, how you use the apps, and overall which you are more comfortable with. Either one you will be able to export data out of and import into another.
