    Re: LastPass Free is a changing

    Seems like a good offer, and the mobile app is well reviewed. Price is very competitive for the premium offering.

    Re: LastPass Free is a changing

    I recently tried and gave up on last pass as it performed really really slowly on my old mobile - Used to take ages to popup. Was going to try it again since I got my new phone. Guess they've torpedo'd that now. Guess its time to find an alternative. Thanks for all the suggestions guys (bitwarden looks good). Its frustrating as I was quite happy to pay a little bit for a decent product but stupid decisions like this really make it easy to decide to look elsewhere.

    Re: LastPass Free is a changing

    I've been paying for Lastpass and will continue to do so.

    It's barely a coffee a month, works consistently across all my devices (Android, Apple, Windows), and has never given me a single problem.
    Not only that, but I find the features useful: item sharing with family, encrypted storage (very easy to use across browsers and devices), breach alerts due to leaks (haveibeenpwned is similar and good), push based 2factor app, and actual support if I need it.

    Worth it for me, but I do use a lot of devices across different operating systems.

    It's been a few years since I've looked at alternatives, and they seem to have vastly improved. I might take a look once my sub expires, but I'm in no rush.

    He definitely puts it into perspective by avoiding paying too much for what is and should be a basic service. For my financial stuff I still use my old method of keeping only clues that I understand in an encrypted excel spreadsheet. So even if someone in the future broke through the encryption it still doesn't actually have the information they need.

    Exported and imported in Bitwarden, painless Just installed the browser plugin and will see how that goes before hitting up the mobile app.

    Re: LastPass Free is a changing

    Mobile app seems pretty smooth. Firefox add-on is a bit less seamless from a UX pov as you've got to head up to the top rather than having a button in the form. Autofill is experimental.

    LastPass mobile app uninstalled, browser plugin disabled. Will let the dust settle before doing anything drastic.

    Re: LastPass Free is a changing

    I did have an issue where I edited the output CSV file in Excel and it converted a long number to scientific notation

    All I can say is that if you want to clean up your details (I removed a row as the account had been deleted) then do it either before the export or after the import!

    Re: LastPass Free is a changing

    Seems Lastpass also has trackers in their app. https://www.theregister.com/2021/02/...rackers_found/

    Definitely sticking with KeePass.

    Well, that seriously sucks, big-time, for a password manager of all things.

    Even though I was only testing, and had little in there and what was was dummy data and a couple of fake documents in the vault (not that I believe they could be accessed, and I wish them good luck with what they find if they can and do ), that is an utter betrayal of trust and says to me in no uncertain terms that they are a company I cannot and never again will trust.

    If I actually said in here what I really think of this bunch of ..... individuals, I have no doubt I'd get it deleted and probably get banned.

    Needless to say :-

    - testing aborted
    - data deleted
    - sacrificial goat email address removed
    - Lastpass uninstalled
    - my local gypsy fortune teller's palm crossed with silver to put the worst curse they can on them.


    Okay, I may have made up the last one.

    The fortune teller was closed.

    I think mine meant actual silver, not coins. Y'know, bullion.

    Re: LastPass Free is a changing

    I have been looking at alternatives and have now imported everything to BitWarden. I did enjoy using LastPass but I hope the jump is worth it, if not I guess I can move to KeePass if BitWarden does not fair well.

    I've always been wary of Lastpass (and cloud-hosted password storage in general, although it could be extended towards cloud hosting in general too), which seemed reinforced with previous news reports of hacks/hack attempts a few times.

    Lastpass and similar just scream out as a juicy target to hackers, with its very idea meaning that there are lots of people's passwords stored there and ripe for the taking, as in theory there is a much higher likelihood of gaining results in sheer numbers than targeting random people on an individual basis to acquire their credentials.

    Reading that line, a certain scene immediately sprang to mind... although I certainly didn't remember the casual racism/xenophobia in it.

    Re: LastPass Free is a changing

    I think all password managers have some type of cloud storage as they would need to for the apps on different devices to work?

    Casual target, maybe. I'm certainly wary as hell, especially of online file storage. To the point that I don't do it.

    As for password managers, I agree .... up to a point. If, and I stress if you trust that the password file is properly encrypted locally, and especially if there's some kind of TFA or token required, then a single password file ought to be pretty safe but still, it also depends just how important the passwords in it, or the things they give access to, are.

    For instance, most of my forum access passwords don't really matter if compromised. If someone really wants to try to decrypt my password file to get access to my RC Modelling forum account, go at it. Now I no longer have admin access here, it doesn't matter much if they get access to this account. It can't do any damage, and a 2-min phone call would see them booted out and the PW changed.

    But I certainly don't (yet) trust ANY password manager enough to give it, for example, bank account details. Or at least, not real ones.
