The free version of LastPass covers the basic needs. You can store an unlimited number of items and share passwords. Using the browser extension (available for most major browsers) will allow you to generate strong new passwords when you're signing up for a new website, store account details, and fill-in username and password fields automatically. The notable omissions are cross-platform sync and multi-factor authentication, which require a $1 per month premium plan. See More
The interface for managing your saved passwords is somewhat noisy and unintuitive. For example, clicking on an entry will not open it, it will only select it. You'll need to find the proper icon for each action. Many actions take more clicks than necessary. See More
All passwords are encrypted and decrypted locally so they're protected while in transit between LastPass servers and your device. It also means that LastPass never knows what your passwords are. Passwords are encrypted with the 256-bit AES encryption. 256-bit AES encryption is secure enough to be used by governments, militaries and intelligence agencies. LastPass was vetted by Steve Gibson. He is a well established security researcher best known for his work with Apple and Atari systems as well as founding Gibson Research Corporation. He was given access to LastPass' source code and confirmed that it's safe to trust its security. See More
LastPass is relatively straightforward. It comes with extensions for all major browsers that will take care of: generating strong new passwords when you're signing up for a new website, storing account details automatically, as well as filling in username and password fields automatically, etc. See More
All common browsers, including Opera, have plugins that allow automatically filling in forms and generating passwords. All form fill information syncs across all platforms, devices and browsers. Password generator can be adjusted to use or exclude certain characters and patterns. See More
There are large differences between iOS and Android; as well as from the base desktop and cloud interfaces. Option A doesn’t correspond to the same thing across platforms. Functions have different names on different platforms, and under different settings. See More
LastPass can dump the whole database as a .csv file or an encrypted file that can then be decrypted using LastPass Pocket as well as separately export Wi-Fi passwords and autofill information. Additional export options are available on a per-browser basis. See More
No native app is available specifically for BlackBerry or Windows Phone devices. There is a feature called 1PasswordAnywhere that's built-in to the 1Password vault, which provides read-only access of the database. However, you can use the web app from your phone. Though this may not be optimal for everyone, especially when considering the service is paid. See More
The 1Password Edge extension doesn't work as well as in other browsers, as it can't auto-fill and generate passwords. Only LastPass seems to have a fully-functional browser plugin for the Edge browser at this time. See More
When logging in a website for the first time, RoboForm will offer to save the login credentials via a pop-up. The pop-up allows creating a new entry or replacing an existing one with the information supplied. And if a password has been changed without updating the entry in RoboForm, the application will offer to update the password next time it's used. See More
RoboForm's toolbar allows accessing all logins and associated websites. Clicking a website will navigate the browser to the appropriate place and peform the login sequence. It even takes care of multiple identities allowing multiple people to quickly switch between, for example, webmail accounts. See More
