more security compared to local pw storage Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Everyone who critisizes the fact that the passwords are not stored locally, does not understand how LastPass works. I am an IT professional and was very delighted to discover that LastPass makes my online experience much more secure than ever. All passwords are encrypted locally before uploaded to the server. That means that also LastPass staff cannot read them. Using LastPass' auto-login function renders any keylogger harmless, because one does not type in passwords anymore. It also can autofill forms with your credit card or bank account data. Most websites mask those entries. Thus - as you don't type it and as the data is not displayed - it makes online banking and credit card payment much safer. And on top of that it also makes credit card payments and online banking safe when you are in an internet cafe. Thanks to the brilliant idea of one-time passwords and detailed double-safety for selected items, noone can ever get control of your LastPass account or the data in it. Study closely how LastPass works and you'll find out it makes your sensitive data much safer. Of course, you should still regularly create a backup. No problem with the import and export function of LastPass. Kudos to the developers.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.51.2).
