    Couldn't imagine life without LastPass now; I even sprung for a premium account to support development.

    Thanks for the info.
    Do you know if we can install over the previous version, or is it recommended to do a clean install?

    Regards.

    Same here 12 dollars a year for no ads and to hopefully keep these guys around for a long time is well worth it.

    My add-on updated automatically without issues for years. I don't think you need clean installs most of the time.

    So what is the general consensus on LastPass where security is concerned? I understand that the data is encrypted, and that if someone were able to intercept my password from my machine that a local solution at that point would be no more secure. I am just leery of an online solution when other sites have been hacked recently that have caused me to have my credit card re-issued twice in the last year.

    I am currently using Sticky Password but I see there is a version 6 in beta testing and the upgrade fee for that will likely cost more than a paid year of LastPass on top of the fact that Firefox's new versioning scheme will force me to have to upgrade things like that in order to keep using them. :thumbd:

    You're going to get those in favor of LP (like me) and those that consider it too risky. And there is always going to be a division about this.

    The difference to me with LP over something like your credit card example is that the card companies have access to the card number. It may be encrypted/hidden to most of their employees but at some point, someone, somewhere in their organization, the card numbers are viewable/available.

    With LP, an unencrypted form of your database is not available to anyone at LP. They don't have the master password. So even if your database were stolen from them, or they have an employee who wants your passwords, they can't see it because it's never out in the open. It only exists with them in it's encrypted form. (It doesn't exist unencrypted anywhere but your PC.)

    To me, that is a fundamental difference. And why I am ok with LP...

    Testing it for a few days now and liking it. The free version seems sufficient but if I can't find a reason to stop using it by the end of the week I am going to go ahead and pay them anyway. :thumb:
