astPass keeps all your passwords gathered into a single, secure place on your computer, preventing unauthorized users from accessing sensitive information. It offers support for Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Safari.
During the installation procedure you can specify the web browsers to integrate it in. Keep it mind the plugin automatically replaces existing password manager plugins for some of these platforms.
LastPass requires account registration, and you can opt for keeping a history of logins and form fills. The tool is also capable of importing insecure data items (automatically or manually).
Once installed, LastPass offers to remember passwords every time you log in with an account. You can edit the URL, name, group, user name and password, add an account to a favorite list, enable automatic login, as well as write notes.
The LastPass vault contains all saved items, and you can explore its contents in the web browser. It is possible to set up new fill profiles by writing personal, address, contact, credit card and bank account information, along with custom fields and notes.
Additionally, you can create and manage identities for different data types, such as personal and business-oriented accounts, so you can seamlessly switch between them. The application also provides a utility for sharing access to websites with other people, as long as they have a LastPass account as well.
A web browser shell extension enables users to quickly autofill data, copy usernames, passwords and URLs, recheck the current page, generate a secure password, and fill forms.
As far as settings are concerned, you can change the master password, time zone, language or website auto-logoff timeout, only allow login from selected countries, as well as disallow logins from the Tor network. Plus, you can remove duplicate websites from your account, adjust the security level, and manage URL rules.
The program does not burden the web browser loading speed or cause any stability issues. It smoothly integrates into the online platform and has an excellent reaction speed. No error dialogs were shown in our tests, and the app did not hang or crash. All in all, LastPass is an excellent browser plugin for securely managing accounts, catering to all types of users.
