    Also, the LastPast Android app charges after a trial period too. Granted it does 'sync' all your accounts to each of your devices. Personally I prefer managing this myself.Just thought I'd mention it before people go and set up their LastPass account and passwords and find they can't access it on their Android platform after 14 days.Good to see Edugeek back though!

    When you use numerous web browsers across multiple PCs, the alternatives start to become a major hassle. I originally started with 1Password, switched to KeePass, then RoboForm and finally settled on LastPass because it works with pretty much every operating system, browser and device currently available.

    I think its a gesture from EG admin for the hassle caused (the free premium accounts that is)

    Nobody said anything was wrong with any password storage services.

    Maybe it should have been titled "Getting started with LastPass password management - other services are available"

    +1 to that here - different tools for different jobs. LastPass works well for browsing for one user, i.e. me between home and work, and KeePass works well for storing any passwords to be shared between people, i.e. different logins for work shared between the support team.

    I imagine EduGeek are recommending LastPass specifically as that tool is better suited to websites. It's by no means the best tool for every situation.

    Looks like a good system and for a $1 a month, not too bad. We use KeePasss in work but limits access locally. I like the idea you can access your logins from anywhere - work, home, phone etc.

    I use keepass as a portable app. It runs from the usb key, so gets round the problem of not having access to your passwords away from your main machine without having to trust a website.

    That's fantastic, I used LastPass a long time a go when it had no real functionality over others. This looks incredible. I especially like the idea of generated passwords, making your real password (for banks, emails) truly separate from the others.

    I'll download this as soon as I get home.
