LastPass – Is it safe?
What is LastPass?
LastPass is advertised as an application that can make it easier for you to manage your passwords. Once the extension gets installed in your browser, it adds the LastPass button to your toolbar. This button can be used to log into your “vault”, where you can view, manage, and add items. You can add various sites to your account from your email, a different password manager, etc. Although judging from its description, the program seems like a useful tool, it is important to be aware of its drawbacks. Some concerns include its distribution method (i.e. freeware bundles) and the fact that it is ad-supported. This article can help you decide whether or not you should delete LastPass from your PC.
How does LastPass work?
As we have mentioned above, one troubling aspect regarding the application is that is travels online in free software bundles. This means that you may have acquired it unwittingly. Programs that spread on the Internet using this method are usually referred to as potentially unwanted. If you never intended to install the app, you should not hesitate to erase LastPass from your PC and your browsers. In order to make sure that you do not have to deal with similar unwanted programs again, you have to pay careful attention to the installation wizard of any software that you install and decline all additional offers presented in it.
Once LastPass gets installed, you may notice certain symptoms that have nothing to do with its main functionality, which is supposed to be managing passwords. You may notice an increased number of ads appearing on all sites that you visit and you may also experience redirects to unfamiliar websites. Keep in mind that the software does not endorse any of the commercial content, so you click on it at your own risk. We suggest that you do not expose your computer to potential threats for no good reason. Falling for an online scam could result in serious troubles including malware infections, data corruption, money losses, etc. Therefore, you should avoid all advertisements until you get rid of LastPass for good.
