Popular password manager LastPass has reached version 3.0. The new release features an updated, clean design across the LastPass browser addons, the iOS and Android mobile apps, and the website.
New features include:
- Revamped user experience and user interface
- Field icon menus for easy access to logins and LastPass tools
- A Shared Family Folder for up to 5 users
- Expanded Shared Folder features for LastPass Enterprise
- A revamped LastPass for Applications
- Secure Note history, to track changes to your notes
- Windows 8.1 support.
The Premium mobile apps for Android and iOS now have a “browser-forward experience”, meaning the browser is integrated with the vault for easy site searching and launching. The vault on both platforms is easily searchable, where you can add, edit, and update your passwords at a moment’s notice.
LastPass Premium users can now use a Shared Family Folder with up to 5 family members to manage and access joint accounts. Each LastPass user can be added to the Shared Family Folder, and the logins or notes can then be dragged-and-dropped into the Shared Folder.
LastPass Enterprise administrators can now give Shared Folder access to non-Enterprise LastPass users. Up to 3, non-Enterprise users can be given access to any Enterprise Shared Folder. The new functionality is particularly useful for those who may need to give contractors or part-time employees temporary access to sites. LastPass for Applications has also received a number of improvements.
