LastPass - any users here?

Longtime user of 1Password, and always their (hidden) one-time payment client, instead of their monthly subscription model.

Been thinking of switching to LastPast, which still has a free version but it won't sync with ones iPhone (or other devices). I may be able to live with that.

Any MacResourcers use it?

Interface is a little clunkier than 1PW which is not the smoothest to begin with.

If you're using the perpetual license version of 1PW then you don't have any of the cloud services to compare to LastPass which is entirely a cloud service.

Users were *probably* not harmed to any great extent, but LastPass had an embarrassing data breach and browser-exploit exposed.

With my perpetual license, I'm able to place the vault to either my iCloud or Dropbox account, which allows me to use 1Password on both my second Mac (an Air) and my iPhone. That may be different from what you're referring to, though.

EDIT: thanks for the note on LastPass's interface, Sarcany. Good to know.

Tuqqer,

Long time 1Password user. Stayed at v6 with perpetual license. Syncs across my macs and idevices via dropbox. For me, 1Password6 just works. No need to upgrade to different version fir now and definitely no need switch to anything else. Makes me wonder which version you’re using and what about it doesn’t work for you or makes you want to switch to a different password manager,

Robert

1PW actually works well for me (I'm running 7.8.6). I just hired an IT guy and to get him up to speed, I was making sure he had a good password manager, and it got me thinking about which one is currently the best. I think you're right, just leave well enough alone.

I have used LastPass for the last 10 years or so. At the time 1PW didn't have a windows client and I use Mac at home but Windows at work exclusively so I needed something that could do both. I currently have the Family plan for LP and it works well for our needs. As the saying goes, it really doesn't matter what you use, as long as you are using some kind of password manager instead of using the same password for all sites.
