So here we are, at my final conclusion about the password managers security. Lastpass vs 1Password, smack downed in a single sentence. For quite a while I was listening raves about 1Password and how awesome it is, and how it’s the most secure way to safe keep your passwords. I never dug into it, as it was quite expensive software.
It lacked functionality of sharing passwords, that I’ve found essential for the use in the first place. My belief about Lastpass was shaken, because my favorite podcasters never seemed to mention it. And I started to wonder, is Lastpass truly less secure than 1Password.
Turns out, that the faith that I’ve put in Lastpass was justified. Guys from Security Now, explained why Lastpass is currently providing the top notch security, even over 1 password. As I consider them them one of the top security experts on the web, their vote made me certain that I am doing the right thing! You can watch more about it here.
So my verdict goes without a doubt…
Update for justice: Guys from Lastpass showed me a tweet where Steve claims that 1password is also good. But I still keep my verdict for two main reasons:
1. Lastpass is web application, where 1Password is powered by Dropbox
2. Lastpass lets me work with my virtual assistants with more ease.
Verdict goes to Lastpass. Perhaps 1Password is equal in terms of security, but for the price difference and extra functionality, Lastpass certainly wins the day.
