LastPass Mobile gets Windows Phone 8 support in latest update

If it was’t for LastPass, I’d never be able to use the Internet. See, I store all my passwords as (hopefully) uncrackable garble, randomly-generated letters, numbers and symbols stored in an encrypted database. After rising in popularity as a browser extension, LastPass has expanded its secure-password reach to mobile devices, including Android, iOS and Windows Phone.

The latest update for Windows Phone introduces WP8 support and an attractive new design. Because of Windows Phone’s sandboxing restrictions, LastPass comes with an internal browser based on Microsoft’s new IE10 infrastructure, and a Favourites feature which allows users to sort most-used sites for easy access.

A subscription runs $12/year, which is decidedly cheaper than some of its competition, and it’s a fantastic service that everyone should consider using.

    I’m still weary of the cloud. Especially when I hear of incidents like Dropbox claiming not even their employees have access to view their clients data only to find out later it is possible even if not likely. I wonder how private LastPass actually is–could a rogue employee decrypt a customer’s data?

    I still use a local PW manager but of course that is not very convenient for mobile. I don’t store any sensitive documents in the cloud unless they are encrypted with AES256.

    I agree about being weary of cloud storage, that is why I don’t use LastPass. After LastPass experienced multiple security breaches in this past year I switched to RoboForm for password management and highly recommend it. RoboForm was the first password manager on the market ans is still the only password manmanger to offer live phone support (based right here in my home state of VA!) which is avaialable 12 hours a day.
