1st password manager YOU HIT IT OUTTA THE PARK! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I really don't know why I decided to install lastpass. I guess it was the security aspects but for whatever reason I decided to try it.

I was BLOWN AWAY by how many passwords you FOUND on my system, I had no idea that all theses passwords were being stored. I use "Delete all private data", CCLeaner, BCwipe, NOD32, SAS and MalwareBytes almost every week yet these "cached" password were readily available to your scan... that scared the snot out of me.

If you can get it..well than others can too!

SO I took the leap of faith and installed LASTPASS.. so far so good. I've installed the plug-in on every computer.. eliminated locally stored passwords on every computer and reviewed EVERY site you found and updated passwords to allow for more entropy accordingly.

I have to say if you guys are TRUSTWORTHY.. I'm a firm believer in your product. So for now I'll give you FIVE STARS. Please don't let us down! Trust is everything.

For those on the fence... I completely understand your fear. Decide for yourselves. I see it as a coin flip. Either LASTPASS is trustworthy in which case my internet security went up by 1000% or they are crooks and my security went down 1000%... but at least there is no middelground with all the completly random maximum passwords I generated for all my sites and everyone different there is NO WAY anyone but lastpass can steal my data. BRAVO! Keep up the good work!

I have a question for the developers... How in the world did you find all those password on MY COMPUTER! I thought I was taking appropriate precautions... wiping, deleting not saving etc. What gives? Is erase ALL PRIVATE DATA not so? Please explain!

Thanks.

Thanks for the kind words -- and not to worry -- we use host proof hosting to ensure that no employee at LastPass could get access to your data: https://lastpass.com/technology.php

To answer your question, when you install with the full LastPass installer (from https://lastpass.com/) we search your Protected Storage for passwords. This is a windows feature which encrypts your data and generally makes it difficult to get access to it (which is why the cleaners you've tried won't clean it up), but it's not impossible, and we'd rather make sure you've cleaned up this area before anyone else can get access to it.
