Getting Started with LastPass. [YouTube VIDEO]

I use it in my Firefox Nightly browser. Has yet to disappoint me… So far it’s been a pure pleasure.

I recommended it to many people and one of my Friends recently told me that I was right… Once You get used to LastPass it’s just irreplaceable… He hated it at first. I remember it pretty well as I was getting the “hate updates” via IM :D.

Some people in the past reacted in a weird way when I told them about LastPass… Their comments were usually orbiting around something like “Why on earth would I give my passwords to a third party…?”. The answer is – You are not giving them to anyone. The passwords ARE being stored on a LastPass servers – yes BUT they are not being sent / stored in a plain text. This would be stupid / reckless / dangerous and trust me paranoid person like myself would never ever do stupid thing like that and neither would I recommend doing so to any of You. The passwords are encrypted using state of the art crypto with the key that only You have access to and they are being sent to the LastPass server as a blob of meaningless data that no one can decrypt but You. For more technical info I invite You to watch, read or listen to Steve and Leo in episode 256 of the Security Now! podcast where Steve explains in details security features behind the LastPass project. I am sure You will be satisfied with the amount of info and technical details provided.

LastPass… _Very_ security aware, very safe, very user friendly, very very very handy.

I hope You will at least try it.

Regards.

Andy
