LastPass Frequently Asked Questions - FAQ


LastPass is a cloud-based password manager that allows users to store website credentials, notes, and other data in a secure and convenient manner. Data stored in LastPass can be accessed via the LastPass website, a browser plugin, or the various LastPass for Mobile applications.

The LastPass browser plugin provides security features that include:

  • Automatic unique and secure password generation;
  • Automatic password entry
  • Automatic form filling (such as address data and credit card data, if desired)
  • Passsword strength and age monitoring
  • Duplicate password detection.

Many modern web browsers also offer the ability to store passwords and other form data. The key difference between LastPass and the built-in functionality of web browsers is: LastPass stores your data in the cloud in an encrypted format (AES 256-bit encryption with routinely-increased PBKDF2 iterations), and syncs between virtually all browsers and all mobile devices.
