A reliable and secure password manager combining both web service and software
Pros & Cons:
LastPass is a one of a kind product. Most password managers are either online or software only. It is the combination of both web service and software. With the web service, you can access your data anywhere. The software which runs on your computer allows you to view your data even when you're not connected to the Internet.
When you install the software, the plugins for IE and Firefox are automatically installed. There is now a plugin for Google Chrome as well. The plugin allows you to automatically fill forms. You will be logged in without even a click. You can always disable it if you don’t like it.
If you’re worried about security or reliability, then let me tell you LastPass is as safe as it can possibly get. It uses the same encryption algorithm that the US Government uses for top secret data. The key to decrypt the data is only known to you, so the database is meaningless to hackers. All encryption/decryption occurs on your computer, not on the servers. This means that it does not travel over the Internet and it never touches the servers. The entire site is encrypted and verified by Comodo.
