Lastpass Saved Me While Traveling Abroad - No Stress Bill Pay From a CyberCafe

Victory was mine this morning, Visa won't being getting a late fee from me! Even though I was traveling abroad - on the road - without a secure internet access point this morning in Berlin, Lastpass's virtual keyboard and universal access saved the day.

About six million north americans live abroad with 20 million more working/traveling outside the country every year. As a member of this traveling horde, I sometimes find myself stuck in a foreign country, without secure Internet access needing to pay an online bill or transfer funds between bank accounts. In the past - I had to choose between logging on from a public PC and hoping for the best - vis-a-vis keystroke loggers and other bad online things or paying late fees or overdraft penalties.

Not today. I was able to log-on to my credit card account using the Lastpass virtual keyboard ( feature in the upper right on the log-in page) and pay a credit card bill. I know the guys behind Lastpass from our days at eStara so I'm not terribly surprised they've made Lastpass easy to use , portable and secure, but I am pleased that they did. Thanks guys!
