My Opinion

I started using LastPass in March 2021. I loved it. I have been trying to keep track of so many passwords on my own, that it was awesome to have this. When my free month was up, I upgraded to Premium for a year. There has been a couple of times the password wouldn’t work. However, it could be my own fault as a couple of places I had two accounts and I could have possibly used the wrong password for the account and had to go in and do the, “forgot my password”, routine. After that, I have not had any other issues. Before I started this review, I was going to give them a 9 out of 10. So, I plan to give them the benefit of the doubt and continue on with my plan.

UPDATE: 06-30-2021

You may know that not even a week after I made this post that I had a major issue.  I no longer can recommend LastPass.  When I choose a password manager again, I will make sure there is contact information for support.  So I do recommend that you search out what is best for you.


Who is LastPass for?

LastPass is for individuals, families, and businesses.  Anyone who doesn’t want to have to remember a password needs a password manager. I had so many to remember, I was trying to write myself notes giving me a hint as to what it was. When you have to use the “forgot my password” routine too many times to count, it’s time to use a password manager.

  1. Hey Connie,
    This is perfect for a person like me who always keeps forgetting her passwords haha! Currently I use Google Sheets to store all my passwords and it is working just fine but I may want to look into LastPass. I like that they are also free. Although their membership plans aren’t too pricey either.

    Does the platform itself has a password to keep all your passwords safe lol?

    Cheers,
    Sasha

    • Hi Sasha,
      Thanks for leaving a comment. Yes, there is a main password for LastPass that you have to remember as the master password. It’s suggested not to store the master password. It is a big help to me.
      Thanks again,
      Connie
