Here's how the new personal plans work:
If you're already using LastPass Free, no action is required to start enjoying LastPass on all your devices. You can simply download LastPass to any of your browsers or grab the mobile app for your smartphone or tablet, and login with your LastPass account.

If you're already a LastPass Premium subscriber, you'll still enjoy the additional value that Premium offers, including priority customer support, family password sharing with up to 5 others, and additional two-factor authentication options like YubiKey. You can also safeguard important documents with 1GB of encrypted file storage. We're hard at work developing even more useful features for power users like you, so stay tuned! Thank you for investing in LastPass and helping us build a better product, for you.

Free version $0

All the passwords are stored with extremely strong encryption (stronger than is typical for consumer applications). The main breach threat is if YOU (the user) choose a weak master password.


LastPass doesn't even have your passwords, per se. They have encrypted versions of your passwords that cannot be decrypted without your master password. They don't even have your master password, they just have a salted hash of it. (If you don't know what hashing and salting are in this context, google it.) If you forget your master password, LastPass cannot recover it or your account contents (i.e. your passwords) for you. (Any password manager that could recover your master password if you forget it would be inherently insecure.)


Of course a password manager needs a way of converting your encrypted saved passwords into plaintext, but with LastPass, the decryption key never leaves your local computer or other device. If your master password is sufficiently strong, hacking the passwords in your account will be computationally infeasible. Your idea of a base password that you modify for every site is no less of a single point of failure, i.e. if a hacker get hold of your base password, it won't take him long to figure out what you're doing on other sites.

LastPass also keeps an encrypted version of your password vault on your local machine. Even if LastPass went out of business and shut down its service, you could still recover all your passwords, as long as you don't forget your master password.

In case it's not clear yet, a strong master password is the most important aspect of using a password manager like LastPass.

And LastPass can be set up to require two-factor authentication, such as a Yubikey or similar device needed to access the account from a PC. (In the case of a mobile phone, the phone itself can serve that purpose, i.e. you can only log in from a mobile device that you have whitelisted.) In such a scenario, even if a hacker was somehow able to find out your master password, they couldn't use it to log in to your account unless they also got physical possession of your second factor.

In short, your method is likely less secure than LastPass with a strong master password and two-factor authentication.

For most people, a password manager is far better then their current system or lack of system. LastPass is one of the best and has been proven to be one of the most responsible services. If any doubt, give a listen to Steve Gibson and his Security Now podcast. Make your life easier and step up your security by using a password manager. LastPass is a great choice.

I don't put in full passwords for critical accounts myself. Just clues that will point me to the actual password using a standard scheme that I use. Yeah, it's enrypted, two-factor, etc., but I still don't completely trust anything. Can't use auto-fill type entry in that case but don't really care. It's more just for back up for my own memory.

Awesome, actually had an alert setup for this. Was waiting for a deal on a yearly pass, but this is Much better since I only wanted it for the mobile client which wasn't free. Thank you! This password manager works great and interfaces with top browsers, the mobile client worked great when I've used their trial.

It was always free. Previously you couldn't sync between multiple devices without a premium membership. Now you can sync without paying-- though there are limitations.

Excellent. Thank you for the heads up. The app access from iOS will come in handy.

Me too. Just last week. It's only $12 but a little annoying if I just bought premium to be able to use on my android phone, and that is now free.

Its one of the few apps that's a "must have" for a cellphone. One of the best apps ever. Love it so much.
