Dear TP regulars ...
I have been MIA for quite sometime , and only during this vacation have enough juice left to come and troll the place
Here goes ...
How many of you have found maintaining bunch of passwords across different IADs difficult ? ( I A D = Internet Access Devices , >> My acronym , don't know if anyone will use it hahaha ) ...
LastPass really solves it for me.
Using LastPass Premium , any password for a Site which I save in machine A , is still accessible for me in a Machine B , just as long as I put in my Master Passcode...
Imagine this scenario for me ...
I have 2 Laptops one running windows Xp and the other WIndows 7 . Both having IE , FF, Chrome and Opera .... I have a habit of frequently clearing cache / history / password to get rid of junk ( read extreme use of ccleaner ) .
I use an Android Smart Phone too ....
I have a PC ( a Dinosaur from 2004 - remember the good days of Athlon Xp ? :D ) ...
Using Last Pass I can sync passwords across all these devices ... ( except android support, thats available in premium only, which i have subscribed to ).
So whether I am at work, home, out partying, anytime I need to access any of the sites I want , I simply need to make sure the browser has LastPass Plugin/addon installed and I only need to remember the master pass.... thats it .
*LastPass allows generation of Random difficult to crack passwords - I dont use this one. I still prefer to create my own innovative passwords. Its much more fun that way.
Imagine a Password like "TheSteakSmellsG00d" << :D
*LastPass allows AutoLogin - I love this one! If you save a site and enable Auto Login for the site , as soon as you land on the home page , if you are not logged in , it will log you in automatically. Gmail, fb autologin anyone ?
*LastPass allows you to configure the timeout session duration. For eg. Everytime you close the browser, next tiime you open it , it will ask for Master Pass. ( Note : This can also be disabled, and one time password input will be enough , but then thats not secure at all )
and so on and so forth ...
With LP Premium , its really easy for me to go sign up at a site I like anyplace I want , and then use the same creds to login from another place ! Always in sync!
Also LastPass and XMarks ( the bookmarking marvelous addon ! ) are also available together!
I am sure , those of you who has their online activity spread all over the map will find this really really useful!
Let me know how is the xp for you ?

I keep a password book. Lucky enough though, I can never find it when I need it, so there's no bloody chance a burglar will.

I keep most of passwords in my brain but also have 1 paper with all passwords written on it, and its in the small box with set for opening wine bottles...so if burglar comes in, I just hope he doest drink on work
@OP - I have heard for LastPass but I am not very confident in such apps (not open-source), devs usually keep mainmasterkey/backdoor for themselfs (even if they say there isn't such key) and by that I don't feel safe.

I have been using LastPass, since I heard about it in PC Magazine (1-2 years ago). I also keep a copy of all my accounts and password in a personal notebook. I don't store my credit card or personal information with them.
