Heartbleed, there was one piece of advice delivered over and over again: Change your passwords. Change them now. And create much, much stronger ones.
We saw many people struggling with where to begin that process. Even for those already using a password manager like LastPass, it still required setting aside time to navigate through each account and update passwords one by one. Until now.
We’re excited to announce that the Auto-Password Change feature we released to our Pre-Build Team last week is now available for all users in beta. LastPass can now change passwords for you, automatically. We’re releasing this feature for free to all our users, on Chrome, Safari, and Firefox (starting with version 3.1.70).
Maintaining your privacy and security is our top priority. That’s why we’re doing this differently. We’ve implemented this feature to make password changes locally on your machine, ensuring we stay true to our mission and never have access to your data. All of your sensitive information is encrypted on your computer before syncing, and your encryption key is never shared with LastPass.
Auto-Password Change already supports 75 of the most popular websites, including Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, Pinterest, Home Depot, and Dropbox. When clicking “edit” for a supported site, a “Change Password Automatically” button appears:
We’re committed to making password management easier, faster, and even more practical. We’re building features that help you minimize the impact of breaches. Give Auto-Password Change a try. We think you’ll find it life-changing, too.
