    I use it over a year, and it is the best password manager I have use it so far.
    After my site being hacked, I decide to make random password for all sites I have login, so I ended with 130 custom generated passwords for each site, and lastpass remember all of it.

    I have premium licence (I think it is 12 dollars per year).

    Glad to see this!

    I've been considering switching to 1Password, though. Do any Centminmod users have experience with both?

    yeah they did get hacked unfortunately though it was fixed quickly LastPass Bug Lets Hackers Steal All Your Passwords


    though any password manager is still safer than reusuing a simple easy to guess password for all your web site and account logins

    still wise to disable autofill in any password manager apps/extensions though

    though there were other hacks LastPass Hacked, Change Your Master Password Now

    this one was June 15, 2015 posted
    2 factor authentication and regularly changing the master password would probably be common sense

    Is LastPass Secure? What Happens if It Gets Hacked?

    An update from me: I switched from LastPass to 1Password over the weekend, and so far, I really like it. I signed up with the family plan, so that I can securely share login info with other family members (something that we need to do quite often).

    Overall, I find their software much easier to use and nicer to look at than LastPass. I also prefer 1Password's form auto-fill system over LastPass', which kind of interferes with the layout and design of forms and could cause more headaches than it solved.

    Yeah, one of my favorite features is the "Secure Notes". LastPass had these too, but they didn't feel as easy to use.

    They are great to store things like private SSL keys, private SSH keys, and two-factor authentication backup codes. I really don't know where else it would be acceptable to keep things like that.

    Not sure why 1password's guide mentions not to use chrome to export Lasspass data ?

    Yeah, the free trial is great too. I haven't paid anything yet. :D
    I'm curious, @Sunka, how have you found this to be in practice? Is it annoying to completely rely on your password manager like that?

    Because it wont make any file for import later, you should do it through firefox.
    Do not ask me why, I do not know that

    Nop, it is very easy. I have to remember only one password, and for all other sites, lastpass is remember and autofill it if I want to.
    With random generated password for each site, it is no problem when something is hacked to change , because you do not need to change passwords on all other sites.

    I have to say that I am reborned with lastpass.

    P.S. I use 1password in past, but last pass is much better in my opinion

    A year subscription to 1Password Family is part of a much larger Black Friday bundle from Parallels. The bundle (which includes Parallels and all this other software) is actually $10USD cheaper than the normal $60/year price for 1Password, so it's already a great deal.

    Parallels Black Friday Mac App Upgrade Bundle 89

    It also includes a two year VPN unlimited plan from Hotspot Shield, Pocket Premium, 500GB of Acronis Cloud Storage, and more. It's the one Black Friday deal I took advantage of. Hope it helps somebody.
