LastPass Password Manager

Very Good password manager but a few faults Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I travel a lot on business, domestic and overseas, and LastPass is an efficient way to save passwords, as well as to log in with them without typing, thus avoiding key loggers (endemic in many overseas locations). Used with Xmarks to remember FFX bookmarks & history, it's a great tool for travelers.

A couple of carps, accounting for 4 vice 5 stars. Generated passwords only use letters and numbers, and ignore the many other available characters. Password length is only 8 characters, easily broken with modern tools, and inadequate for sensitive log-ins such as financial institutions. However, I manually add another 2, 4 or 6 characters to get better length and variety, and LastPass remembers the modified password.

Unfortunately, you have to type in the LastPass password itself, which is unprotected from key loggers.

Overall, this is a very good program and much better than using "password" as a password. It's exceptionally valuable when traveling, and using a different laptop.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.0).
